Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the Church. I have been called to serve in the Australia, speaking Mandarin Chinese. Before I became a missionary, I studied Computer Science at a university in Utah. I plan to get a Master's Degree in Business Administration after I finish my undergraduate degree. I love music and I play the piano and saxophone. I love to play basketball, go running, go on dates with girls, and go on Facebook. I am an Eagle Scout and enjoy doing recreational activities. I have lived in Utah, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Massachusetts.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a member of the Church and have always been very active in the activities that the Church has to offer. As I have grown up, I have come to know for myself about the truthfulness of the gospel. I know that Christ lives and that He loves me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I also know that we have a living prophet today who receives revelation from our Heavenly Father. I know that through the power of the Holy Ghost, we can all come to know for ourselves if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is really the true church of Christ. I know that it is. I see the blessings of living the gospel daily and am so grateful for the opportunities I have to serve others, both in and out of the Church.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving a mission for the Church in Australia. When I was in the Youth programs, I served in numerous leadership roles. I organized activities and service projects and tried to be a good example for my peers.

Who are the Mormons?

The word, 'Mormon' is simply a nickname for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The word 'Mormon' comes from the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ. Mormon was really cool. He compiled the Book of Mormon in about 400 A.D. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. We also believe and read from the Bible. Show more Show less
