Hi I'm Jacob Russell

Hey I'm Jake Russell. I am currently on a mission in McAllen, Texas. I'm super excited to be serving the Lord!

About Me

Currently, I serve as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Mcallen, Texas. While I was still in high school, I enjoyed playing basketball and being on the debate team.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I prayed. Just as Joseph Smith and many others throughout the world have done, I have prayed to our Heavenly Father and received a witness for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ every day. I love being a missionary and serving the Lord. While serving a mission, my faith in my Savior has grown so much. Serving as a Representative of Him has helped me grow into a better person.
