Hi I'm Jake

I love soccer, spending time with my family, and love serving the lord. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary right now, serving the lord in North Carolina! I love to play soccer, i've played all my life since i was little. My family is a big support to me. I have 3 younger siblings and a dog! whom i love very much. I have been to one semester of college just trying to figure out what i want to be when i grow up. It was a crazy experience. I love spending times with friends and sometimes just being alone and thinking. I love to tease and play around but when its time i work hard to get the job done!

Why I am a Mormon

Every individual wether they are Latter Day Saints or not, needs to gain their own testimony of the Book of Mormon. I had my own personal experience before I left for College in 2010. That summer my friends and I decided to spend the last Friday and Saturday I had in Idaho. I drove up alone because I was going to pick up a friend who lived in Idaho. When Saturday afternoon came, it was time to go home. As they left I called my friend who lived in Idaho. The phone rang once before it died. I remember wondering "how in the world am I going to get him? I don't even know where he lives." in the car I offered a prayer asking for help. I looked around and saw 2 gas stations and a Subway. I walked into the first gas station and asked for a cell phone that used a sim card. No luck. So I went to Subway next. I waited 40 minutes while everyone was being helped. When there was no line I asked if they had a phone with a sim card. No luck. So I went to the 2nd gas station. I asked them too and they pointed me to the car chargers. As I was looking a man came up to me and asked what phone I had. I showed him and he told me to follow him. When we got to his car I charged my phone, called my friend, got directions, and as I was telling this man thanks. He reached by me to unplug the charger and said "here, you need this more than I do." I remember the feeling I felt was the exact feeling I felt as I read the Book of Mormon. At that moment I knew the Book of Mormon was true, and Christ lives.

How I live my faith

I love to help my church especially with serivce. Whenever we recieve an assignment for service i'm always the first one to sign up! i've been given a lot in my life and i try to give it back any way i can to my heavenly father. He's definitely blessed me with strength. I visit families in the ward and just make sure everything is alright, and if there is something i can do i'll for sure help them out in the best way possible! i'm always looking for opportunities to serve. I've felt the blessings for going out of my way and helping those around me. There are so many things we as members and non-members can do to feel the spirit inside us, that great warm feeling when we help other out. It happens to everybody! I serve others and strengthen them, and by doing that. I feel my heavenly father strengthen me. I love this gospel with all my heart!
