Hi I'm Jacob

I am currently a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in Cusco Peru! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in the Peru, Cusco Mission. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and hope that I will be able to bring many people to it. When I get home from my mission, I plan to return to Brigham Young University (BYU) and finish my schooling there. I come from a small town in Mountain View, Wyoming, where my parents run a small lodging business. I have 9 brothers and 2 sisters (a family of 12), and Family is one of the most important things in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it is the true church and I know that it is true. I know that through the Church, I am coming to Christ, and becoming a better person every day. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church of Christ restored through his Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet and that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet today. I know that through Jesus Christ we can all be forgiven for our sins and return to live with him and Heavenly father again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to Church every Sunday, reading my scriptures, saying my prayers, and looking for opportunities to serve. I always strive to be the best person that I can be, and live the way that Christ would want me to. Jesus Christ is the perfect example, and my ultimate goal is to become as much like him as I possibly can in this life. I am currently on a Mission for the Church in Cusco, Peru!

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Jacob
The prophet of the church is chosen by Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the head of the church and directs everything that happens in it through revelation. Usually the next prophet is the Senior Apostle (The one that has been an Apostle the longest). Show more Show less
