Hi I'm David Copeland

My home is Alaska. I am currently serving a full time mission in the city of Salt Lake City. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Florida. My Father is a doctor, he joined the Navy when I was born. I have lived in Florida, California, The island of Guam and The Great State of Alaska. I love Basketball, playing baseball, hanging out with my buddies, Fishing, Shooting and Hunting, and basically having an all out rowdy time! I am the oldest child in my home, by 13 minutes!! So yep, I gotta twin brother! My father is dorky, like myself, my mama is the sweetest and my brother is my everlasting buddy. I love my family! I'll see them again in 2 years, but until then it's time to serve with all my heart, might, mind and strength!! On August 12th I reported to the MTC, for my 2 year mission in Salt Lake City! Let's go!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church by my father and mother. I have been in the church all my life. I love the people I have gone to church with, in every place ive lived. The church has the best standards and it feels good to know ive behaved myself, when I see so many around me that have fallen off track. I have a strong testimony in the church, its leaders, our beliefs, and that Heavenly Fathers loves all of his children.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an active missionary in my everyday life. I do this because it is the responsibility and duty of all us members to help our brothers and sisters around us come to the truth that we have found, so that they to may experience the joy and great peace we feel knowing we have an Eternal Father in Heaven that loves us and will support us and will sustain us as long as we obey his commandments.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

David Copeland
Ancient prophets wrote the Book of Mormon. Starting with Lehi down to the Moroni. Then after several centuries the ancient text was given to the modern day prophet Joseph Smith to be translated so that all of the inhabitants of the earth could have another testament of Jesus Christ our Redeemer and Savior.
