Hi I'm Jared Knight

I'm an Australian. I'm a snow free-skier. I have been called to serve in the Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Mission. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Adelaide, South Australia. My whole family are Australians, and at the age of 8 my family and I moved to Centerville, Utah, USA. I have lived in Utah ever since our original move. I have grown to have a love for free skiing. I love the snow and there is nothing better than losing yourself in nature. I consider the mountains home and feel at peace when I am there. I also love to surf, I have family that lives in Hawaii and I have found a passion for surfing there. I love to spend time with family and friends outdoors in any way. I love to fish, hike, go camping, and dirt bike.

Why I am a Mormon

Everything comes back to the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is the record of the people living in the Americas around the time of 600 B.C. - 420 A.D. Their record was recorded in the language of reformed Egyptian. And through the gift and power of God, Joseph Smith was able to translate this record into English, as what we now know as the Book of Mormon. We are promised that when we read the Book of Mormon and ask God in prayer, having faith in Jesus Christ, with real intent, and a sincere heart, God will manifest the truth of it through the power of the Holy Ghost. I have read, prayed to ask God if the Book of Mormon is true. And over time I received my answer through the power of the Holy Ghost that it is. And because I know that the Book of Mormon is true I now know Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's Kingdom. I know where I came from, I know why I am here, and where I am going after this life. I know who I worship and that Jesus Christ is my Savior. And through Jesus Christ I have found everlasting peace and happiness. This is my testimony, and this is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission in Oklahoma, Oklahoma City. So far I have served in Shawnee OK & currently I am in Clinton OK. Here In Clinton we work with Hispanics from all over the world. It has been an amazing journey/blessing to learn how to communicate with these people in teaching them the gospel in the Spanish language. No matter who you are, where your from, or what you have done in the past, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is for everybody. The love of God is limitless. And as a missionary I get to have a front row seat of the Atonement of Jesus Christ take full affect on these peoples' lives. I love my mission and have never been happier in being a full time servant for the Lord. And I recommend anybody thinking about serving a mission, to do it. I have never before in my life felt as close as what I do now, to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father.
