Hi I'm Elder Reid Jackson

I'm in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission. I like to have fun, I like turtles, I'm in a wolf pack, and i'm a Mormon N'@.

About Me

I'm the youngest of two brothers and one sister . I love to do sports, such as swimming. I have been swimming for most of my life. Some of my friends (Raff, Leo, Don) call me Mikey, Blue Falcon, Blue Bear or Jackson. When I came out on my mission i thought of my self as a lone wolf then I met some friends that had taught me to work as a team, and they were always there for me, so and we formed a pack. We are now a wolf pack. I like turtles. My first area I served was in Johnstown Pa. My second area was Green Castle Pa. My third area was Monongahela Pa. My 4th Area is State College PA. I'm now serving in Towanda PA I love serving people because I feel a love for the person after I served them.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why im a Mormon is because i was born in to it. But the reason why im a strong member is because of my family, friends and my church/seminary teachers are a great example. I love my family with all my heart, my parents had taught me how to pray to Heavenly Father when ever i need help with anything. Even if its for school, or if its with swimming. I have friends that mean the world to me because they are such a great example to me. They want me to be happy and to stay close to the church and they want me to be able to serve a full time mission. I truly love and appreciate my seminary and my Sunday school teachers. They try to help me get a better understanding of the scriptures, and they help me get better study habits with the scriptures so i can teach with the holy ghost and be a great missionary. I wasn't fully converted till I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. Once i did that i knew with out a doubt that this church is true.

How I live my faith

The way i live my faith out side of going to church is that I dress modestly and I am careful with my language. I try to remember that I have a name tag on with 2 names. One name is my own and the other is Jesus Christ. I try to remember who's on my tag and who i represent. I try to remember that we are all children of our Heavenly Father. I often find different ways I can serve others. I love to do service because when i serve others i serve my God.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Elder Reid Jackson
The Book of Mormon is simply another testament of Jesus Christ. The Bible has Gods teachings in the Eastern part of the world. And because God is a fair and just God he brought or took his teachings to the Americas so everyone could have the gospel. So the Book of Mormon is Christ teachings in the Americas. for more just read the intro of the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
