Hi I'm Jacob

I am Elder Carter and I am serving in the Santa Rosa California mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and like to go Camping, Fishing Biking and everything else that has to do with the outdoors. I am serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Fairfield California currently. Im a very Patient guy that would like to get to know anyone that will allow it. My plans for after my mission is to go to school to go into law enforcement and then after I retire im going to be a pastry chef. Now doesnt that sound awesome!!! Well thats all about who I am and what I am.

Why I am a Mormon

During my younger years I always asked myself why was a Mormon? But I never knew the answer until about 2 1/2 years ago when I took the challenge that Moroni gave in Moroni Chapter 10: 3-5 and did what it said and that was to pray and just an overwelming peace came to my mind and I knew that this was the church that Christ established on the earth and I know that this church was restored through a boy named Joseph Smith. I also know that the Book of Mormon is the word of god and that we need a second witness that Jesus is the Christ and that he died for us. The priesthood authority is real and the power that comes through it. I have seen many miracles and I cannot deny that this is the true church once established on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by keeping all of Gods commandments he has given all of us and to also go to church every Sunday. I enjoy to take the sacrament and to remember what Jesus christ has done for us. If it was not for Jesus nothing would be possible and once we partake of the Sacrament we have all the bad things that we have done that week washed away as long as you have the faith that we can be forgiven.
