Hi I'm Jason

I grew up in South Africa. I have a passion for sports and politics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a charasmatic person with bold ideas and opinions. I'm interested in politics (especialy British). My goal is to be the editor of a big newspaper. I enjoy watching and playing all kinds of sport (Particularly association football). I love being up-to-date about the news and happenings of the world. I've completed a year of University (I'm studying journalism).

Why I am a Mormon

My parents aren't members of the LDS church. My grandmother brought my brother and I to church my whole life. I learned all the messages and principles of the gosple from Primary. I was only allowed to be baptised when I was 13 years old. The most powerfull affirmation was when I was confirmed and when the aaronic priesthood was conferred upon me. It affirmed to me that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I have seen how the gospel works because I've lived it. It provides us with a better life and - crucially - which greater happinness

How I live my faith

Since I've been baptised I have always had a burning desire to participate in the ward's life. As I grew up my desire grew and I began to emerse myself in the church and its people. I've been a quorum president, a secretary and a ward missionary. I'm now serving as a full-time missionary in the England. It's great to be able to serve the Lord. It really has helped me to grow in my faith.

What is the priesthood?

Jason
The priesthood is the power by which God runs his church. When a man holds the priesthood he has the authority to act in the name and place of the saviour for certain ordinances and with regards to leadership. Show more Show less
