Hi I'm Jacob Fagersten

I grew up in Iowa. I'm the youngest of 9 kids. I love my family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I graduated high school and I am in the Nevada Las Vegas Mission serving as a missionary. I am waiting for my visa to go to Brazil and serve in the Brazil Curitiba South Mission. I love being a missionary! In high school I played football and wrestled and I was captain on my soccer team. I love soccer! I have played my whole life. I am the youngest of 9 children and I have two incredible parents. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my knowledge that the true gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth has made it possible for me to feel peace, joy, and happiness in my life. I don't have to worry about knowing whether or not my Heavenly Father loves me. I don't have to worry about what will happen if one of my family members pass away. Because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ I can live my life in peace, with confidence that I am living now to prepare myself to return to live with my loving Heavenly Father in a place with more love and happiness than I can even begin to fathom in this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to live a Christ-like life. I love being a missionary and sharing the gospel every day with as many people as will listen. I like to think about the gospel like this, if you had the cure for cancer, you would probably want to share it, right? Well, I believe I have something better than the cure to cancer and I want to share it! I'm not only a missionary while I wear a name tag for two years but for my whole life. I have taken the Lord's name upon myself and I need to represent him every day, so I am. Or I'm trying at least. The Lord doesn't expect us to be perfect, He just wants us to try our best to follow Him. If we do that he'll be happy with us! I love that! So I live my faith by trying to share the Gospel and trying to be the best person I can be!
