Hi I'm Jacob

I grew up in Provo, Ut. I'm on a mission in Russia. I'm a ballroom dancer. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up playing soccer, football, rugby, running track and singing. About 8 years ago, I really fell in love with ballroom and have been doing it since. I plan on becoming a professional ballroom dancer and starting studios across the world. I am now in Russia on a Full-time mission. I Love Russia and the Russian people! When I return home I plan to go to school at Utah Valley University where I will study... Something... I love the Gosple of Jesus Christ and the joy that it brings me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for a lot of reasons, the least of these reasons is that I was born to parents who are members. One of the main reasons is because of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is the most true book on this Earth. A lot of people may say that it's just a book written by some guy trying to make up a church, but I found out for myself that that is not true. I testify that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the flesh. Joseph Smith was a true prophet of the only true church and through the power of God he translated the golden plates into into the Book of Mormon so that the world could have the truth. I invite anyone who reads this to read the Book of Mormon word by word, Phrase by phrase. When you finish, do Moroni's challenge, and you will know by the power of the Holy Ghost that the book is true.

How I live my faith

I am a Full time Missionary for the Church, and am serving in Russia, Rostov-na-Donu. Being a full time missionary means that I consecrate all of my time, efforts and thoughts to serving Jesus Christ. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ. If anyone looking for answers to questions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints don't be afraid to ask!!

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jacob
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is one of the greatest gifts we ever have and ever will receive. It allows us to start over and over and over, as many times as necessary to become clean and return to live with our Heavenly Father again. We cannot even begin to comprehend how this was possible, or how Christ felt https://mormonandgay.lds.org/videos?id=12890833240538902483 this video is amazing at describing how the atonement applies to us each individually.
