Hi I'm Jacob

I'm 20. I grew up Mesa, Arizona. I love extreme sports. I love music. I am currently a missionary in Mexico and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 20 year old from Mesa, Arizona and I am currently a missionary in Cuernavaca, Mexico. I am the middle of 5 kids and have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I really enjoy spending time with my family and I know that I would not be the person I am today without them. I enjoy every kind of sport and love spending time in the outdoors. I enjoy anything that gets my adrenilane pumping. One of my favorite activities is Dirtbiking with my family in the California sand dunes. I enjoy the thrill of defying gravity on my dirtbike. I also love to sing and feel that there is no better way to express how you feel than through singing. Music is such a blessing in my life. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and have faith that through him anything is possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the LDS church and have grown a stronger love of Jesus Christ as i have gained knowledge of him. I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and I have recieved an answer that it is true. I know that it is the most powerful book on the eath. I have a purpose and direction in my life because I know that I can live with God again. The knowledge that I can be with my family forever brings me so much joy and peace. I know that when we make mistakes we can change and come back to Christ through repentance. I know repentance is real because I have used it in my life. The joy that I feel because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ has given me the desire to share it with others. I want the people of Mexico to feel the eternal joy this gospel will bring to their lives. Our heavenly father is aware of all of us and wants us all to return to him.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of Jesus Christ in everything that I do. I was a primary teacher at my church and I loved teaching humble little children about Jesus Christ. I believe that there is no other group of people that are closer to God than little children. I have a strong faith in this restored gospel of Jesus Christ and I believe that the Book of Mormon can really change peoples lives. The Book of Mormon has changed my life and has given me a purpose. I know that the Atonement is for everyone and we will all live again. Even though right now I cannot speak Spanish fluently, I have faith that if I try my best, my Heavenly Father will strengthen me.
