Hi I'm Jake Allred

I live in Salt lake City, Utah and am half way around the world serving the Lord in Samara, Russia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Name is Jacob Teancum Allred I am 19 years old and I am serving the Lord right now as a volunteer in the Russia Samara Mission. I have learned so much and grown since I left home I have grown so much physically, mentally, and spiritually. I have always been a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saint and had wonderful parents to raise me and teach me the ways of life. They always are there when I need them and support me in the choices that I make. I think it is important that we all have the ability to chose what we want in this life and in turn the life to come. I am an open person and try my best to not judge others whether that be their faith and what they believe or just who they are. To me family is probably most important thing in my life I love spending time with them and seeing each other grow. I am just a regular guy and am athletic I love to work out and go to the gym some of my other passions are football, rugby, cars and boating! Plan on going to school after my mission and eventually finding a nice young women and starting a family, but I am not to that point in my life yet so we'll just have to wait and see.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the church this is all I know, I haven't always belived. Last year I took It upon myself to find out for the truth and I read the book of mormon all the way threw for the first time. I have gained a testimony and know that this is the true church!

How I live my faith

Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ" Right now I am half way around the world from my home to serve the Lord and strengthen his children here in Russia. Everything I do here shows how I live my faith.
