Hi I'm Jakob

I grew up in Payson, UT. Serving a Mission in Bulgaria. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm at college and want to study languages. Sofia, Bulgaria is my mission. I enjoy ultimate frisbee, tennis, and watching movies. I played tennis in high school and ran a little cross country and track. I think languages and cultures are amazing and fascinating and hope to learn about many different ones. I've started studying Japanese, and Bulgarian, and hope to learn Russian after that. I worked at a Boy Scout camp as a Emergency Skills instructor.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I was born into the church and throughout my life I have come to know for myself that it is true. From being a youth as a Mormon I have learned the importance of service and duty. Christ's life was focused on service and I am grateful that I was taught at a young age of the importance of service, so that I have a desire to follow Christ by serving others. My life has not always been a steady thing and every time I am lost the Gospel of Christ is always in the same place and allows me to find my way back into its peace. I know that Christ lives and is our savior. I know that this is His church and His gospel. I know that our Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us more than is possible to comprehend. I know this because I have personally felt their love and the Holy Ghost has told my heart that it is true. Jesus Christ and His gospel has blessed me beyond what I can say with words. With forgiveness, peace, and knowledge of my potential as a Son of God.

How I live my faith

I've been a leader in my youth organizations many times. In college I was in charge of making sure everyone was being taken care of and taught by home teachers. I have also been a coordinator for collecting charitable donations. I'm currently a missionary in Bulgaria. Teaching Heavenly Father's children about the Restoration of Christ's church on the earth today.
