Hi I'm Jens

I'm from Germany, love doing sports and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just finished school and am currently serving in the best mission on the whole world: The England Leeds Mission. Growing up, I always had other things in mind. Football came first, then swimming and cycling in neighbouring places or hiking in the beautiful south of Germany. I loved doing sports and enjoyed improving myself in these physical areas, but the most satisfaction... or better said the only lasting satisfaction... did I find when I went to church with my twin brother and my faithful mum who is a convert and makes up the first generation of our family in the church. My father and the rest of the family are still either not religious or of another faith.

Why I am a Mormon

Everytime I feel as if the standards are too hard for me, I receive extra strength and my whole personality grows more mature and stronger. I love that putting so much effort into living according to God's commandments gives you always more back than you can ever give. I am so convinced that this church is true, because of the feeling in my heart and soul. You CAN find out and KNOW that it is true, if you trust the feelings in your heart.

How I live my faith

As I said, at the moment I have the privilege of being in another country, sacrificing two years of my life in order for other families to be together for eternity. I try to embrace all the principles and commandments of the church, such as not smoking or drinking to having a modest mind and appearance. I love the protection and guidance provided and am so thankful for the opportunity to share this joy coming from it.
