Overcoming Trials and Swimming the English Channel: Greg Mockett’s Story

As Greg stood in front of his Elder’s Quorum one Sunday, he knew that many of them were going through really difficult trials.  It was in this moment that he made the comment “I could probably swim 45 yards on my own, but with God’s help I could swim the English Channel”.

6 years later at the age of 52, he actually did.

Greg’s story isn’t merely a tale of athletic triumph; it’s a journey of battling through the storms of addiction, business failure, health scares, difficult trials, and the quest for purpose.

Greg’s reflections on the miraculous assistance he received, the significance of family support, and the life lessons that emerged from the depths of the English Channel encapsulate his 15-hour testament to human endurance, all anchored by an unshakeable faith.
