Hi I'm Jake Segura

I am a humanitarian, musician, and future missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.

About Me

I was born and raised in a strong, wonderful LDS family in St. George, and Midway Utah. I graduated from Wasatch High School in Heber City, Utah, and currently attend Utah State University as a Special Education major. My greatest passion is serving others. I have a deep love for individuals with dissabilities, and hope to be a special needs teacher, and eventually start my own non-profit that helps to reform special education programs in foreign countries. I have been involved in various humanitarian projects, and have loved traveling to places such as Kenya and Navajo Indian reserves to better understand and serve people of other cultures. I am also a musician, and love creating projects where I can work to help others with my music, whether it be writing for individual people and their trials, or producing and selling my music for charity, I love serving others in the unique ways and giving my time and talents to the Lord. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ, and am excited to enter the mission field this March 2013 to serve in the Mexico, Mexico City East Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a wonderful LDS family that taught me prinicples of this church that made me the man I am today. While their example means everything to me, I have learned that personal conversion is necessary in knowing the reality and truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While I had the faith of others to lean on for sometime, I have found that there are critical moments in our lives that we will all experience, where will have our backs against the wall, completely alone, with no escape, and we will have the oppurtunity to come to know Jesus Christ. My battle with depression and anxiety put me in a darkness where only the light of his gospel could reach, and now I can never deny that I know Jesus Christ. He is not a thought, idea, or ignorant hope, he is real. He is as real as any other person on this earth, and because we are blessed enough to have trials that give us oppurtunity to come to know him ourselves, all we must do is call on him with real intent, and pure heart. Through coming to know him, I have come to know that this is his way not just for me, but all his children. This is a way I hope to live, to be living proof that Christ will not abandon us, and that he has a way for us, and that is his church. The churc of Jesus Christ of ladder day saints.

How I live my faith

My faith is focused on the gospel of Jesus Christ, and his atonement. The principles of the gospel that have touched my life the most are related to the worth of souls. I see my mission in life as a responsibility to show those who feel they are lost and without meaning how much they are worth to their Savior and redeemer. The most gratifying experiences of my life have been simply sitting down, and listening to others with a pure heart, and sincere desire to help them. I have found that there is nothing better in this life than showing others what they are worth. There is an endless amount of people praying, begging for help, and not enough working to answer their cries. I pray and search for oppurtunities every day to show others what they are worth. I live my faith by living like I stood in the garden of Gethsemane with the Savior. While this is a lofty goal, it is what I strive for, and as I do so, and share his love for his children with them, it only increase my personal conviction and desire to serve him always.
