Hi I'm Jake

I'm a Thai-speaking missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in Bangkok Thailand.

About Me

Right now I'm am serving a full-time mission which means that I have left my family and friends behind for two entire years to bring others the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Before I left I was attending college at Brigham Young University studying the Chinese language. Before that I was an English teacher in Taiwan. One of my most favorite things to do in this world is to travel around and meet new people. The beauty of this earth and the people in it is a great blessing, and I fully intend to see and experience as much as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Church has brought me the most happiness and the most truth that I can find in this life. I love being a member of a Church which encourages its members to learn as much as they possibly can. I love being a member of a Church that allows me to share this knowledge with others. I love being a member of a Church that teaches me that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me no matter what I do. I love being a member of a Church that teaches that we too can become perfect, even if we make some mistakes today. I love being a member of a Church that receives modern day revelation that will help us in all of our trials that we face today. In short I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith every moment of every day. I know that I will make mistakes down the road, and I know that I have made mistakes in the past, but I truly believe that the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has made me who I am today. I know that by keeping the commandments of God I have been blessed and I know that he will give blessings to everyone that does the same. Part of my faith that I try my very best to show is being kind to everyone. I know that everyone on this earth goes through hard times at one point or another. Many times all we need is a friend, and many times that is all I have ever wanted. The gospel is truly a blessing because we have an eternal friend that will stand by us no matter what. Christ the Savior and our Heavenly Father love us unconditionally and because I want to be like them someday I try to do the same.
