Hi I'm Jake Welch

I'm from Pleasant Grove Utah, I'm a musician, I'm a photographer, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Art is a huge part of my life. I love music, and photography. I've been playing piano for 10 years and guitar for 2. I listen to all sorts of music, indie rock, and indie folk being my favorites. I'm working on becoming a great photographer. I love to take photos while hiking and on camping trips. I've been called to serve an LDS mission in Cali, Colombia speaking Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. But as most teens in my town who are born and raised in the church, we all come to a point where we must find our truths on our own. I'm a Mormon because I went through a time I needed the atonement. I had lost the spirit and wanted it back. Once I kept the commandments and did what God asks, including daily prayer and scripture study, I felt joy stronger than I had ever felt before. I couldn't deny the truth.

How I live my faith

The church is everything to me. In my life I've been blessed with so much and the gospel has got me through so many challenges. As a result of my joy, I want to share it with everyone. That's why I want to serve a mission. To bring others to feel the love, happiness and truth that the gospel brings. I'll be a full time missionary for 2 years in Colombia.
