Hi I'm Jackson

I am from Southern California. I am currently serving a mission in Stockholm, Sweden. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old kid from Los Angeles, California. Before my mission, I was on the surf team, the soccer team, and the volleyball team at my high school. I love to surf, it is my passion and I hope to continue to surf for my entire life. I am currently on a mission in Stockholm, Sweden and I am loving it. I am going to college at BYU and plan on going to medical school after I graduate. I come from an amazing family and I have an equally amazing group of friends. I love the Lord and I love the opportunities I have been blessed with.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found out for myself that there are truths inherent in this church that can not be found anywhere else. There are so many aspects of this church that not only fit perfectly together, but also expound on and explain the Gospel of Christ and Heavenly Father's overall plan for us. As I study the gospel more and more, I find that I am more and more convinced, not only intellectually, but spiritually as well, that this church is the only true church on the Earth today. I know, because of my faith, that families can be together forever, that we receive personal revelation from Heavenly Father who loves us, that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and is another testament of Jesus Christ, and that Christ's church has been restored in its fullness to the Earth today. Because I know without a shadow of a doubt that this church is true, I find great peace and hope in its doctrine. I know my purpose in this life, and I know where I am going after this life. I am a Mormon because I know I can live with my Heavenly Father and my family forever in Heaven someday. I am a Mormon because with the hope, power, and peace I get from being a member of this church, I know I can do anything.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by preaching the word and helping willing and sincere people be baptized who want to be baptized. I am currently serving for two full years in Stockholm, Sweden, spreading the good news to the people and devoting myself to their salvation. Going on a mission is a choice that I made which came straight from my heart, and it is a choice that I greatly value and cherish. I am able to leave the world behind for two years and completely devote myself to the Lord and the people of Sweden. I consider myself one of the luckiest people in the world to have this opportunity. I live my faith by preaching of Christ all day, every day for the next two years.
