Hi I'm Jake Jones

Grew up in California. I played Waterpolo, Wrestled and was a CA Beach Life Guard & EMT. I'm serving a Mission in Cali Colombia.

About Me

I am the oldest of 3 boys, but one of many grandchildren. I have always been involved with a sport all my life. I played Water Polo and Wrestled for years. I love the ocean, have surfed for many years and was a California State Beach Life Guard where I had the opportunity to save others and make a positive difference in peoples lives. I love serving people so I pursued an EMT certification. I enjoy working hard. I'm an Eagle Scout & like to spend my free time in the great outdoors. I was recently called to serve a full time two year Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be serving the people in Cali Colombia as a representative of the Lord, Jesus Christ. And I am so EXCITED!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the good spirit that is felt when I'm doing what I am supposed to be doing or when i am giving service. We can all have our own personal witness of the Holy Ghost which can bear record to each of us personally. To me, living the gospel of Jesus Christ as a Mormon is not just a "Sunday" thing but an "everyday" thing on how you live your life. I make mistakes like everyone but I understand that the infanite Atonement of the Savior is available for all mankind. In the simplest terms, I am a Mormon because it is the source of everlasting happiness for me and my family.

How I live my faith

I have attended church regularly since i was a child. I was baptized at the age of 8 and grew up in the church. But even though you grow up in the Church you still need to come to know that it is true on your own. Once I knew for myself through my own personal prayer that the Church was true I decided to go on a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints and share it with others. There is an easier way with lasting happiness. I want others to learn how to obtain this true happiness and peace through our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am serving where i can help people come unto Christ. People that know me, know I'm always trying to improve and I care deeply for others. I hold myself to high standards and morals in my everyday activities. Christ said that if you help others, its the same as doing it for him and it makes me feel good inside to help others and be kind.
