Hi I'm Damon Hooker Jr.

I am serving a mission in Taiwan, Taipei. I love Flying, playing the Cello, serving others, and learning new skills. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 18 years old. I love Aviation and anything with it. I have helped out with scouting and the youth run organization the Order of the Arrow. I love playing the cello. I am serving a mission in Taiwan, Taipei! I love to learn new skills and serve others. I love that I am able to serve the people of Taiwan for 2 years and I am sharing the joy, love and hope that I have received through this gospel with others so they also can understand this amazing message, and that they may know that they are always loved.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a Mormon, and I am one because of the spirit that resides with the people. No where else can you feel the way you do then within the church. I have had prayers answered many times and I know that this is the True Church, and that our Father listens to us and loves us. No matter how low I am in my life I know that there is always hope. You can see the light of Christ in the eyes of the people, and you I can feel that same love for people I serve. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only place that allows me to feel this way. I have seen promises fulfilled and I know that there is always hope. That's why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I love going out and serving the elderly! They always can bring a smile to your face, and all you have to do is spend some time and help them out. I also love helping youth gain leadership skills and progress through scouting! I have been able to mentor a couple of youth and it is amazing to see them transformed over time as they understand and grow. It is the little things that build up to big things. That is why I try to serve anyone that I can, who is in need. I try to spend meaningful time with others that they may feel uplifted and positive. These things build up into my testimony and making me who I am today!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Damon Hooker Jr.
The Lord has commanded that every worthy, able young man should prepare to serve a mission. This is the main reason that I want to serve, which is simply because the Lord has given a command, and because I love him and I know his words are essential for us to follow, but there is so much more to it than that. Have you ever had a time when you have done something and you're super excited to tell everyone about it. You want to share it with anyone you possibly can that is the reason I serve. I have found something amazing! It is the Hope, the Joy, the love, and the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. It is amazing and I cannot keep this bottled up inside of me. I want, I need to share with other people that they may also be able to share in this Joy and know with out a shadow of a doubt that they are loved and that there is purpose in life. That is why I serve! Show more Show less
