Hi I'm JEFF GAINES

Born and raised in the bay area. Served a mission in Detroit Mi.I'm passionate about anything with a motor, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm 24 years old. Rockabilly culture and music flow in my blood. I have my own shop where we work on dirt track race cars to race at the local speedway in Watsonville, CA. With help from friends we also built a 1930 Ford model A hot rod, which was a frame off restoration on a super tight budget. When I was 17 I received my Eagle scout award. My project was to paint 75 fire hydrants in a day. We finished by noon! Now I'm currently saving $$ to go to welding and fabrication school in Riverside, CA by the end of the year. I want to race the Baja 1000 in the next 3 years!!!

Why I am a Mormon

Well it all started with a movie called Gods Army. . The scenes in the movie really struck home for me and the spirit that I felt I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it was from God. To this day I have not felt the spirit touch me so strong. These events and many others influenced me to serve a mission. Nobody pushed me to go or bribed me to serve. It was 100% my choice. The best choice I've made so far and has set the foundation for me and my future family in the near future. I know the Book of Mormon to be true. We have a prophet on this earth receiving Divine guidance from Heavenly Father for OUR welfare and happiness. Sincerely pray for yourself, search it for yourself, ask for yourself if its true.

How I live my faith

One thing I do to live my faith is helping the missionaries in our congregation find people to teach. Its so rewarding for me to help some one find Christ and help build there testimony of His Gospel. I try to read the scriptures once a day, its a lil tuff but I try. Prayer for me is essential. Without it I fail. Listening to General Conference talks on my phone helps me stay grounded to what matters most.
