Hi I'm Jacob

Born in Utah, raised in ohio and forged all around the world. I am a mormon

About Me

While I lived a fairly normal life for the first decade and a half of my life, things quickly become very different when my dad accepted a job that had my family living around the world. This had me living first for two years in Brazil, followed by a year in Indonesia before I headed off to university. These experiences helped grow my interest in other cultures, languages and people. I now am returning to Indonesia as a missionary for the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I see the truth in the Book of Mormon's teachings, especially about the dangers of pride, wealth and inequality. I want to help the world and see the LDS church as a way of doing that.

How I live my faith

To me, one of the most important aspects of the LDS church is it's focus on service and helping those in need. While I do not currently have a calling, I am going on a two year mission for the church, an act of service for the people of Indonesia. Outside of the official bounds of the church, I attempt to serve and help others.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Welfare is one of helping out those in need, as Jesus did. It shows that we care and love everyone just as Jesus did Show more Show less
