Hi I'm Jake

English Missionary

About Me

I have a great love for the countryside, travelling, music, movies, finding out things and different cultures and foods. My family are the most important thing for me, and I see so much in life that makes me happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been an open-minded person I like to think, and one who has always wanted to know everything! There are so many questions I've had about God and the purpose of life, and I've seen many different ways to try to find that belief for myself. I've become converted through a great life-changing process which I've always been on for as long a I can remember. Several years ago, at a time I was exploring religion for the first proper time myself, I met two missionaries. I loved the truth they gave me, and the way I can find out by asking God. After that my life changed more than I could have imagined. I was baptized, and continued to gain one great blessing after another, which has made me who I am today. I'm so glad to know really who I am, and to have a life like this.

How I live my faith

My life has assured me that my life are of great importance to a Father in Heaven. All of this is a journey I'm constantly on to have. I love to read the scriptures and learn about the Gospel and also to gain a solid feeling that it is right. I pray, sometimes as best as I can so I can have a good conversation with Him. Church also gives me loads of things to learn, experiences to have like doing missionary work, giving talks, building confidence, gaining life skills and other things to do to keep me very busy and active, but deep down what most affects me is the feeling of warmness and joy I have when I reflect on what I have.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

It's remarkably simple. It boils down to the fact that only God is able to answer any question we have. If we sincerely, intently ask God if something is right, he will answer us through our feelings. Ask anything you really want to know, and the answer will come. Show more Show less
