Hi I'm Jed Fackrell

I have a twin sister, I enjoy backpacking, rock climbing, camping, skiing, snowshoeing, running, traveling, and being out doors!

About Me

I am currently serving the lord in the Botswana, Gabarone mission. I come from a family of 11, and am one of two sets of twins. I plan on getting married soon after mission and going into the military to defend my home, liberties, my future children and wife, my rights of worship and the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am a believer of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That Joseph Smith truly was called of God to bring us the fullness of the everlasting gospel, mainly from translating the holy volume of scripture known as the Book of Mormon. I know that that book is true. Because I read it, thought about its everlasting message and then got on my knees and prayed to God, asking if it was his words to us. I got my answer, and because of the undeniable feelings of the Holy Spirit of God, I know of the books validity. Thus I also know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, that Jesus is the savior and and redeemer of the world. And that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the earth. I love being apart of this wonderful gospel, it brings me peace and joy, I love Jesus Christ and always want to follow him by being on of his disciples. By living his commandments. For me, being a Mormon is the most perfect way to accomplish everlasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my actions. By following the example of the savior, and accepting his invitation to take his gospel to the ends of the earth. For about one year I have been serving in the Johannesburg, South Africa mission and am now getting transferred to open up the Gabarone, Botswana Mission due to the inflow of increasing missionaries. while on mission I am doing my best to invite others to come unto Jesus Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, baptism, receiving the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.
