Hi I'm Elder Jayden Ling

I grew up in Idaho. I love being able to socialize with people spread my ideals. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always attempted to be a social butterfly, and eventually talking became one of my favorite things to do. I like to rock climb and run cross country. I also love to snow board in the winter. All of these things I love doing with friends. But most of all I love to hike and capture all of the beauty that is around me. I am so blessed to have all of the many beautiful sights that are around me. It makes it easy to continue my passion. But above all of these things, I love to be able to share what is the rock of my life. And that is the gospel. I am lucky to be able to serve a mission in São Paulo, Brazil. I am so ecstatic to be able to go out and preach what I know to be true no matter what language it is in.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have been blessed multiple times and I know that is because of the diligence that I have in my life to follow the promptings of the spirit. Now that doesn't mean that I haven't had trials, because I have just like everyone does. But the church helps me get through that, not only does the church help me but the spirit does that. I know that staying is the right thing to do and I know that I have never had as many good things happen in my life when I'm not following the teachings of this church and the true teachings of Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful to be a part of this church and all of the many wonderful things that this church does for the needy, and I know that only a true church would help the people.just like Jesus Christ healed the sick,this church heals the people that are need of happiness. It can be found, and it is found in the church of Jesus Christ, and that is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

As I grew up in the lds in church I have had many opportunities to serve the people of my same age group. And this has helped me dramatically to be able to know what is like to lead,and be able to let others lead. Currently I am serving with the high school males in my ward. I help them to realize what is ahead of them and also what fun things they can do to have as much fun in high school as possible. They are also a huge influence on me inspire me to continue on the path that I am on. I'm so thankful for the gospel of the church of Jesus Christ and how much it can help complete strangers become close. It just reminds me of what miracles are happening at all times. I am so very excited for the future and the mission that I am going to be leaving for soon. I know that I will help people find the true light of Christ and I know that they are going to be helping me to mature and remind me that this is what I will want to do for the rest of my life.
