Hi I'm Jacob Ahmu

I grew up in Utah. I'm serving a mission right now. I'm going to Kobe, Japan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played football in High School. I like music, sports, and other things. I worked before I went on my mission. I am going to Kobe Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life. I've always felt it was true growing up, but as I grew up I started to know for myself that it is true. I would encourage everyone to read the Book Of Mormon and find out for themselves if this gospel is true. We have commandments for our own good, as members we aren't made to keep them. If you follow them because you think you have to you're following them for the wrong reason. I am a member because I know that what I'm doing is true and brings true happiness. When you follow what the Lord says you receive blessings and know that what you're doing is right through the confirmation that the Holy Ghost gives you. I know this Church is true. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus know every single one of us personally, by name, what we do, what our weaknesses are, what we're good at, what we like, EVERYTHING. I know Jesus Christ sacrificed himself so that we can have a way to return back to him. I know that I'm going to Japan for a reason, that there are people waiting to hear the gospel and have been waiting for it their whole lives. I love this gospel, the happiness and knowledge that it brings.

How I live my faith

I am giving two years of my life to the Lord to serve the people of Japan and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the gospel. I try to do the best I can everyday to better myself to be a better example of what Jesus Christ would do. I'm not perfect and I know I'll make mistakes but I still try to be the best that I can be. We have so much potential and I'm trying to live up to that potential. By serving a mission I'll become a better person and better at living my faith. "Hope is wanting something to happen, Faith is believing it will happen." "True conversion is being true to what you know." I'm trying to live by that quote to show how I live my faith.
