Hi I'm Sorrel Glenn Duffy Jakins

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in South Africa. I served an LDS mission to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).

About Me

I am a father of four, and a grandfather of ten. In my 65 years I have seen many things and have come to love this beautiful world. As I approach my mature years I have appreciated, all the more, the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the bible both old and new testaments a number of times, and I have a firm knowledge of and belief in the Saviour Jesus Christ. The book of Mormon is also a testimony of Jesus, proving that God calls and inspires men in this day and age and has from the beginning. All the prophets from Adam on down through time served the Lord Jesus Christ and bore witness of him (Revelation 19:10)

How I live my faith

I serve in my local congregation as a counselor to the Bishop, giving especial attention to the youth. My wife Lynette and I are excited to begin serving a full-time mission in Detroit Michigan from July 2016 to January 2018.
