Hi I'm Caleb

I've traveled the world and will be serving a mission in Tampa Florida. I am Mormon.

About Me

I am a huge lover of all kinds of music. I play the saxophone, banjo, piano, and percussion. I love to play a lot of double peddle stuff on the drum set, I play jazz on the sax and finish it off with some classical on the piano. My favorite music to listen to is classical rock like led zeppelin and Eagles. i am also a huge fan of all the music from the 80's. I worked as an electricians helper for a good year before going on my mission. I really enjoyed my time there. I have been awarded for my skills as a musician for both the saxophone and for my drumlin playing as well as for orchestral percussion. When i was in high school i was a member of two different saxophone quartets, Saxappeal, and Saxaction. I know there kinda cheesy but what else would you name a sax quartet.

Why I am a Mormon

The real reason why i am Mormon is because it gives me hope. Knowing that there is a savior who came to the world and atoned for my sins is very comforting. Another reason why is because we have a profit who gets direct revelation from god about our time and the trails that we are facing. There are miracles that happen every day. some other churches will say that miracles were only during Jesus time but we teach that god has restored the church and given man the power of the priesthood to bless the lives of everyone not just people in the church. We believe in love for everyone and for all there is no such thing a conditional love in the the church it is only unconditional love. God loves all of us, he sent his son Jesus Christ to the earth to atone for our sins, we have a profit on the earth who is blessed from on high to lead the church and provide us with counsel for our time. This is why i am a mormon

How I live my faith

I am an Eagle scout. I love to play my instruments for charity events. The biggest thing I'm going to do about living my faith is that i am going to be serving a full time mission in Tampa Florida for two years. This past year i was called as a word missionary. That means that I am called as a missionary for my ward or congregation that I meet with. The purpose of this calling is to help the full time missionary's, and to most importantly help the new members and the less active members to stay with the church. I found this the most rewording experience. I also got to teach the Gospel principles class which is like a crash course in the Gospel to help new members or investigators get answers to some unanswered questions about the church that they might have. going to this class has strengthen my testimony in the church greatly and is one of my motives for wanting to serve a mission.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Caleb
Visitors are always welcome. In the first hour of the meeting we have a meeting kinda of like mass. this is when we gather and sing music and hear talk from members who the bishopric has chosen to speak that week. the second hour is were there are classes fro children and adults. in the third hour there are more meetings this time the men will have meetings together and the women will have a meeting together. If it is your first time there are always people who will help. the full time missionary who are wearing suites and name tags will be delighted to help you as will any other person who you may ask.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Caleb
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to hear and accept the gospel if they wish. There are no restrictions to who we will seek and teach. Show more Show less

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Caleb
There are no restriction based on color or race in any of the settings of the church. the thing that matters is if you are worthy to serve as a servant of god. Show more Show less
