Hi I'm Malachi Hopper

Born in Liberty, MO. I grew up in Lee's Summit, Missouri. I'm a 8 year convert to the church. Also, a good person and funny too.

About Me

I was born in Liberty, Missouri and moved to Lee's Summit when I was a month old. I'm the 7th out of 11 children. I have five brothers and sisters. I'm a convert to the church. I still remember who the missionaries were that baptized me and my family. I did fall away from the church for 3 years and came back in my sopohmore year of high school. I gradurated from Lee's Summit North High School. Class Of 2014. I don't have college experience, but somewhat of missionary experience. I currently am serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. Just 3 hours from home and trust me, there is a lot of corn.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, my family and I were baptized on December 26th of 2007. We did fall short after being baptized. Some of us did go back to the church and fell away again. But, I did however start reading the Book Of Mormon one day and just felt a spring shooting up through in my heart and realized it was true after reading the whole book. I bolted up the stairs and told my parents that I want to go back to church. In which it did shock them. But, I do know that the Book Of Mormon is true. For it is the word of God and another testament of Our Savior.

How I live my faith

I was never ordain as a deacon and teacher because of me being less active. But, I was ordained as a priest and my calling in the priest quorom as the secretary when I was in my 10th grade of high school. Then, became 2nd asst. in the qourom as a junior. I was to be the 1st Asst. by our bishop and though he said no. But, when I was released as 2nd Asst. and he assigned me to be his 1st Asst in the qourom. Also, reading the scriptures does help with my faith because I know the Book Of Mormon and the Bible do support each other. I do know that Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of Our Heavenly Father and is also Our Savior.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Malachi Hopper
As God has called of His Servants, the Prophets. We believed that God loved us so much to where a Prophet is in need of restoring the church that Jesus Christ build when He came to the world. To do the Will that His Father had Him to do. As of we believe is that God once called again a Prophet, Joseph Smith. A 14 year old boy, who wanted to know which church he should reside in and wanted to know which church was true. He asked in a prayer to know which he should join and be part of. For He was told to join none of them, for Joseph Smith was going to restore the church that Jesus Christ had, the Priesthood Authority and the Gospel that was taught as well. You can ask God about Joseph Smith and ask to know if He was called of God to be the Prophet of the church that Jesus Christ once had here and now is back in complete original form.
