Hi I'm Jake

I'm friendly, talented, a missionary and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Like any young man, I like hanging out with my friends. I am a very social person. I like meeting new people and making new friends. I love art and music. I like to draw, paint, dance, sing and play instruments. I also love nature. I do nature hikes, nature photography and blog about the beauty of the earth.

Why I am a Mormon

From the moment I had a mind of my own I was already being taught about the restored gospel of Christ. As a child I already felt the truthfulness of it, and now that I'm growing, my testimony of the gospel continues to grow stronger as I continue to follow the counsels of my leaders, read my scriptures, pray to God, keep the commandments and strive to live a worthy life. As a young man of modern times, it is hard to live in a world full of temptations & trials and strive to keep high standards. But having knowledge about the gospel of Jesus Christ helps a lot. You just have to have an Eternal Perspective, base you choices on the eternal consequences, not the immediate happiness. We may face adversaries but if we endure we will only get stronger. Being a Mormon helped me meet young people with the same standards and also share these standards to other young people. I had an experience with a less active member of our branch, he was the same age as me so I always befriended him. He was very shy cause he wasn't from around and he didn't know anybody in our branch. For a while he was less active but I always was a friend to him, I always invited him to attend classes and activities. After a while he started to feel comfortable and eventually started to become active. Now he is my best friend. Being a Mormon also helped me develop my talents and confidence. I was given the opportunity to share my talents in the church through church activities. I get to learn new stuff, new techniques and also I get to teach things I know as well. I am a member of our District Choir, a member of our Institute Choir, the vocalist of our Institute Band, and I also teach dances whenever we have cultural presentations or talent shows. Why I am a Mormon? Because "Mormon" is who i am, it's what describes me best. I'm a Mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it.

How I live my faith

I was the President of the Young Men Organization in our home branch. I used to teach and inspire the young men of the church. I try my best to be a good example to them. I also helped organize church activities; like Youth Conferences, Talent Shows, Community Services and more. Now I am serving as a Full-Time Missionary to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I am a Mormon Missionary and I proselyte because I want other people to know what I know is true, feel what I am feeling right now, receive blessings I continually receive and have their lives changed the way mine did. Also to help other children of God return to His presence. Show more Show less
