Hi I'm Jabs

I Breakdance, Freerun/Parkour, DJ, and I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aka Mormon.

About Me

Jamaican born, American New York raised, 28 years of age, and it's The Lord I praise. Eldest Son of 6 3 Brothers 2 Sisters to a single mom with great faith, who was seeking the truth daily and brought me up in the ways of righteousness. I spent 20 years of my life without the fullness of the Restored Gospel, practicing and attending a lot of different faiths. I enjoy almost every sport ran track, played football, wrestled, good food mostly healthy, listening mostly Hip-Hop/R&B/mixing everything music and being active. I have done business graphics, managed restaurants, worked in schools K-12, Naval Reserve, removed hurricane debris in semi's, and many other fulfilling experiences. More about me later or just ask.

Why I am a Mormon

Living with great respect for friends and associates. Many knew me as the shy guy with good morals. After following the example of a mother I love by being baptized, I began to have questions and doubts (nuff respect to the prophetic women, that said "your a good guy, don't change"... I didn't listen). Which soon led me down foreign paths and I was almost lost... but as I knelt in prayer before my Father in Heaven... He answered me. Growing up I always felt there was more to life than just making ends and passing away... As I came to the knowledge of different opinions on religion, it came to the point where I had to ASK (Ask, Seek, Knock)... more of the mysteries of godliness have been unfolded to me through the Holy Ghost and obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. Although I followed and supported the example of a wonderful mother by being baptized, I continue to serve the Lord and live true to my covenants and what I now know because of Jesus Christs' example and His love for me.

How I live my faith

We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. (The Articles of Faith #3) So FLOSS often... Faith, Love, Obedience, Service, Sacrifice Everyone is a child of The Most High and I strive to allow others to exercise their agency. This life is the time for me to prepare to meet God "...so joy can be had." (see Alma 34:32) judging people is not a part of that. All I can do is prepare to share, care, and help remove fear...

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jabs
How much more joy can be had when purpose is found. Many desire to know what the purpose of life is. Missionaries strive to keep the commandments and take the opportunity to share what they have come to know through the Holy Ghost and show their great love for Heavenly Father and His children. "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:18-20) Show more Show less
