Hi I'm Jacob

I am currently serving a mission in the Ohio Cleveland mission, and Im a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a full time mission in the Ohio Cleveland mission. I was called as a spanish speaking missionary so I have had the opportunity to learn spanish while I have been out here. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and I love to hunt, fish, ride four-wheelers, snowboard, hike, scuba dive, paintball, basketball, and well... pretty much anything that involves adrenaline.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not a mormon because i grew up in this church, I am a mormon because I have received a confirmation from the spirit that this is Gods church once again established upon the earth. I continue to follow Jesus Christ's Gospel because as i follow it, I can feel his love in my life. I know that Jesus Christ is our savior, that he lives, and that he loves us. I know that he bled and died for our sins so that we might come unto him and receive forgiveness. I know that He has again revealed his gospel in our day. I know that just as in old times, He speaks with a prophet on the earth in these days. I know that God loves us more than we can possibly imagine. I know that the book of mormon is the word of God because i have prayed and received a confirmation from God. I feel that this is his gospel with every fiber of my being. It has increased my capacity to love as i have grown to understand these things. I wouldn't trade this testimony for anything in the world.

How I live my faith

I currently live my faith by sharing the message of this Gospel with eveyone I come in contact with. A great prophet named Moroni once said " Charity is the pure love of Christ"(Moroni 7:47) We are all sons and daughters of our heavenly father. He loved us enough to send His son. Jesus christ once said "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."( John 14:13) I may not ever be able to even come close to the love that God had for us in sending His son, but I live my faith by striving to show love to everyone that I come in contact with. Understanding this principle has increased my capacity to love others to a point that I never thought possible.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jacob
ABSOLUTELY!!! The full name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We Believe in him, we worship him, we try with all our might to serve him. We believe that it is through Him, and only Him that we can be saved and return to live with God again. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jacob
Mormon missionaries Proselyte because they know that the message that they share is true. They have seen the influence that this gospel has had on their lives and have been called by God to share it with everyone they come in contact with. They serve the Lord for eighteen months to two years and devote all of their time and effort to sharing His gospel. Show more Show less
