Hi I'm Jakob Rui

I'm from Norway, I love my family, my friends and sports. I'm currently serving a mission in the heart of the church.

About Me

I'm 20 years old, I'm a Spanish speaking missionary in the Utah Provo mission (2015-2017). I grew up in Norway and I really love that beautiful country. I like to play sports, especially football (soccer) and tennis. I'm a person that loves to laugh and have a good time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have received a witness from the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus Christ loves me, and that he has restored his Church through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I have also through the same power gotten to know that the ordinances in the church of Jesus Christ which are performed by his authority is necessary for our salvation and it is the only power that can bind families for all eternity.

How I live my faith

Pray, study the scriptures and go to church? These were the answers I said all the time growing up in the church, It was always the right answer, in primary, young men and Sunday school. But I did not have an understanding of the importance of it. But learning comes over time and now I feel and understand more of the purpose of living these things and not just doing them. I pray, study the scriptures and go to church for many reasons but one of them is to receive personal revelation and acting upon the promptings and answers I receive from the Holy Ghost. From these things I'm getting directions how to become a more faithful member of the true church of Christ and seeing the fruits and the blessings of the restored gospel.
