Hi I'm Jacob Hatch

I am from Sandy, Utah. I'm serving a spanish mission in New Mexico. I love being happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a two year volunteer mission for the church in New Mexico and Texas right now. My job is to go and share the wonderful message of Jesus Christ with as many people as I can. I went to college before my mission. I don't know what I want to major in, but I still have a ton of fun! I love art, music, skiing, hiking, and lots of other awesome things! I have been a member of the church my whole life, but I am still learning and growing in my faith every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I grew up Mormon. My wonderful parents have taught me all my life to follow Christ. However, I have come to know for myself that this church is true. I love reading in the Book of Mormon and being able to apply the teachings of Jesus Christ and the prophets more and more in my everyday life. I think it is amazing how much you can learn from the scriptures!

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a mission!!! I love the opportunity that I have right now to give two years of my life to the hispanic people of New Mexico and Texas. Sharing what I have come to know about the gospel of Jesus Christ with others is an amazing blessing!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Jacob Hatch
We as missionaries proselyte (ie knocking on your door, talking to you in the street, calling you on the phone, reffering you to this website, etc...) simply because we want to share what we have with others! We have so much happiness in our lives because of the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ! We really just want everybody else to have that too! Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Jacob Hatch
One of the greatest blessings that I have received in my life is the gift of the Holy Ghost. The peace and guidance that it gives me is truly amazing. I have learned from experience that I can rely on the Holy Ghost to comfort me in times of difficulty or sorrow. With the gift of the Holy Ghost we are able to have this wonderful influence in our life at all times, as long as we are doing our best to keep God's commandments. Show more Show less
