Hi I'm Jake

I'm a missionary. I love the South. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First off, I am a Missionary serving in South Carolina. I love the people here and I am truely blessed to work with them each and every day. I'm from a family of 4 with 1 older sister. My Father was in the Navy, so our family moved around alot. Because of the Navy I have had the chance to grow up in several diffrent states, including South Carolina. I played alot of sports while in high school and because of it I developed many relationships with a bunch of people. I was one of the only Mormons in my high school so alot of people wanted to see what I would , and would not do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because its really the only way to be happy. I've had chances to leave the church, I've had moments in my life where I was tempted to leave. But something that always came back was happiness. My best friends from church were always a million times happier than my friends from school. Its scary how diffrent the two were so black and white. I also found myself wanting to be a better person whenever I would be around my friends from church. It always happened, I never left them feeling like I should do something contrary to what I was raised to do. When I was around my friends from school, I was alright. But around my friends from church, I was happy. The point in life is to be happy. One is happy when he or she follows the commandments of God and truely lives their faith, not just on Sunday. So we all, my friends and I, decided one day that we were going to serve missions. That was the best decision I have ever made in my life. Now Im happy, and I know this Church is true

How I live my faith

I go out everyday and I do my best to try and help someone change their life in one way or another. If its teaching about Joseph Smith , or if it is just sharing my testimony with someone in need, Or just helping someone with yard work, I constantly look for a time and a chance to help someone else out. There is no better feeling in the world than to know that you effected someone elses Day/ Life. Who knows how far your simple act of kindness could reach. But It wont help anyone if you dont do it. So just do it.
