Hi I'm Jacob Earle

I grew up in Alaska, USA. I am serving a Mission in the Czech Republic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a son and a brother. I lived with my family in a school bus that we converted to an RV. I love to learn. I taught leadership classes at a cutting edge, online middle school. I have a passion for the wilderness and have spent dozens of nights sleeping under the stars. I swam competitively for 8 years. I am the son of a third generation military pilot. I have traveled to over thirty states. I have accepted to call to be a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Czech Republic. I am in the MTC currently and will serve from 2014-2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I read the Book of Mormon and knew that it was true. I am a Mormon because I feel a special spirit when I devote my time to Jesus Christ and the LDS Church. I testify that if you read the Book of Mormon and pray to know that it is true, with real intent and faith in Christ, that the truth of it will be made known unto you. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, the Jesus Christ is my Savior and that through repentance and baptism, we can return to live with God and Christ again. I also testify that faith is a requirement that precedes knowledge of the truth. If we have faith, the lord will bless us more than we can ever know. Why am I a Missionary? Because I want to help others come unto Christ and feel the same spirit that I have felt.

How I live my faith

As a young man in the U.S.A. I have often found solace in my faith and religion. I go to youth sunday school on sunday and youth group on wednesday where I participate in uplifting activities with other mormon youth. Throughout High School, I attended an early morning scripture study class (Called Seminary) before my academic classes. I try to share what I know to be true with my friends and colleagues and live a life of happiness as I obey the commandments of God. I am serving as a missionary for two years and am so excited to devote my time to helping others, just as Jesus Christ did.
