Hi I'm Jeffrey Jaquez

serving in a mission in salt lake city south, utah mission.

About Me

i grew up in new york city with my single mother and my younger sister are most of my life. i am an animator and im still studying it. i have studied in the school of visual arts for 2 years before i made the resolve to serve a mission. i love to draw, make comics and short movies as a hobby. i wasnt born in the church but when i was very young my mother converted and i followed afterwards. i am currently serving a mission in salt lake city south utah mission. i love to draw, im from new york city, ...i like to party.... and im a mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

im a mormon because of my mother's conversion. because she raised me and her example of what a true caring and loving person she is, it really nurtured my testimony about how much God really loves me and cares about every little thing i do or go through. i did have a rough past with trying to fit what i believe to my life but i've been holding on to the testimonies of those that i love to pick me up and out me in the right paths that leads me to where i am right now. deciding to go on a mission was the most difficult point in my life because i really needed to ask myself if i would stand with God no matter what happens or what i have to do for him. so i prayed about for a whole year trying to prepare myself if i do decide. when the time came i made the resolve while i was in the middle of my education in college to go on a mission. that decision not only shaped my own testimony but gave me hope that i can achieve anything that my father in heaven wants me to do and to be.

How I live my faith

i was a ward missionary and now serving a full time mission. i never felt like living my faith didnt stood my out from the crowd, i feel that i have built my expectations in life and lifestyle beside on my goals i want for my future and my goals are based on what i believe and stand for. i love to help and serve people and missionary work was something that helped my interact with those that needed not just the gospel of jesus christ but needed someone who cares about them. the church really helped me overcome alot of challenges and trails i've been going through when i was a teenager and when i really need help thats who i turned to because of the influences that i felt in church.
