Hi I'm Jake

I grew up in Minnesota, I'm currently a missionary in Fresno California, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Minnesota. I'm the youngest of 4 brothers and 1 sister. My brothers deffinatly taught me alot, but in return they also beat me up quite a bit. I grew up going on campouts and just loving to do anything outdoors. I love playing sports, especially football, basketball and baseball. I was one of the few mormons in my hight school so it was deffinatly hard to live up to the standards, but it was worth it in the end. I am currently serving a mission, and i love it! It was a tough decision to come out on a mission. It has been the hardest thing I have had to do in my life, but i wouldnt change it for anything! Seeing the change in peoples lives and the blessings because of the gospel has been the best experience of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are converts to the church I grew up in it. I always knew there was a God and Jesus Christ was my savior. At the same time though, when my friends would ask questions about the church, I would begin to doubt myself on whether or not it was true. I would say that i didn't really have a testimony of the church until i came out on my mission. While on my mission i have been able to see countless of people change their lives for the better. Now I can truly say that I know that Jesus Christ is my savior, I know that this church is true and that it was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. And I know that anybody who embraces it will feel the blessings of the atonement in their lives.

How I live my faith

I always tried to be an example to my friends and those around me since not to many of them were Mormons. The way I live my faith now is by serving a mission and inviting all to come unto Christ.
