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?

Jacob
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
