Hi I'm Jake Flake

I have lived in Arizona my entire life and have a great family history in Arizona. I am a cowboy, hard-worker, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Yes, that is my real name and I am proud as can be to have it! I am from Gilbert, Arizona, I am currently serving a mission in the Canada Toronto Mission as a spanish speaking Elder. I have a lot of family. Like a ton. Both of my parents have a many siblings, and I have probably close to 80 or 90 first cousins, which is one of the most fun things in the world for me! My family comes from small towns in northern and eastern Arizona like Eagar and Snowflake. I love small towns and the feeling of everybody being a large family. I love horses and am a cowboy. I worked on the ranch that my grandpa owned when I was younger, and would someday like to have my own ranch to raise my kids on. It is the best because you get to ride a horse all over the land that our Heavenly Father has created. For me, personally, the desert landscape is absolutely beautiful. I love all kinds of music, especially country music! I love any song by George Strait or Garth Brooks. I love to work with my hands, and be outside! I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ because of the doctrine of eternal families. Family is the most important thing in the world to me, and I can't imagine not being able to live with my family again after this life. That is why I am serving a mission, to help others learn that they can be with their families for eternity and make it happen. I KNOW that you can find happiness through the Gospel of Jesus Christ if you put forth the effort, search, study, and work for it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have gained my very own testimony of this Gospel, of my Savior Jesus Christ, my Heavenly Father, and the Atonement. I love that through faith and a worthy life, I am able to live with my family for eternity, because my family is the greatest thing I have in my life and I love nothing more than them, both my extended family and immediate family. I love this Gospel and I hope that you will be able to find happiness through the teachings and principles taught through it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be like my Savior, Jesus Christ. When Jesus Christ was here on the earth, He taught his Gospel to those around Him. This, along with helping others know they can be with their families for eternity is the reason I am serving in the Canada Toronto Mission. I want to help bring others to the knowledge and truth which I have found in my life, and the joy and happiness that I experience from this Gospel. I truly love the direction that it gives me in my life, and the example I have to follow; that of our eternal Savior Jesus Christ. I know that Christ suffered for all of us to make it possible that we can be cleansed of our sins, and return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father after this life.
