Hi I'm Cooper Hawkley

I'm a Mormon from Reno, Nevada and Paradise, California. I attend the United States Air Force Academy.

About Me

I will be serving a mission in the Japan, Sendai Mission from 1 July 2015 through July 2017. I have completed my first year at the United States Air Force Academy and will return to finish my last three years at the conclusion of my mission. I enjoy fly-fishing, hiking, backpacking,flying, skydiving, hunting and anything else outdoors. I am the youngest of six kids. I speak Chinese and some Japanese. I am majoring in Foreign Area studies will a focus in Eastern Asian History.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a great comfort to me as I struggle through hard decisions and task. I find true joy when I try to a line my life with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Christ's Plan of Happiness is the foundation of the LDS church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is founded upon true doctrine and provides the organizational support for his truth.

How I live my faith

I have chosen a life of service to my country, as a future officer in the Air Force. I participate in several service organizations and regularly do community service. I am responsible for the Sunday school teachers in the local LDS Church. I will be serving a mission in Japan for two years from July 2015 to July 2017.
