Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in the United States. I was home schooled. I'm going on a mission to Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up i was home schooled, and attended LDSHE. I completed my eagle scout. I am going on a mission for two years of my life, dedicating that time to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. When I get home i want to go to collage for a computer major with a focus on ANI(Animation and design). I also enjoy ancient weapons and armor; mainly swords, shields, and bows.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, when i was eight i was baptized. Since then I have continued along the path that was laid out for me by our Savior Jesus Christ. Since i can remember i have always had a desire to serve a mission for the Lord and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with His children, and now i am going. I always seek to do things by the direction of the Spirit, because He leads us back to our Heavenly Father. I know that Jesus Christ lives! I know that He rose from the dead on the third day! He is our Savior! I know that through Joseph Smith He restored His gospel! I know that God lives, that He Loves us, and that He has a plan for our lives! I know that the Spirit whispers to us the truthfulness of all things, and that He leads us back to our Heavenly Father! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of Jesus Christ, once again restored never again to be taken away!!! I testify of these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

When I was fourteen years old I served as a leader for those who where fourteen to fifteen years old, seeking to guide them closer to our Father who is in Heaven. From the time I was fourteen till now I have served as a home-teacher. I will be serving a mission, Sharing the good news of the gospel! In the LDS church you often hear us say I 'served' or we 'serve' in this or that. In our church we are not paid to do our duties, all the time and effort put into doing our duties is voluntary service, which is why you hear us refer to our duties as 'callings.' This is because we believe that we are called by God through our ordained leaders.
