Hi I'm Jacob

I was born in Marietta, Georgia. I currently am serving a mission in Barcelona, Spain. I love Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Marietta, Georgia. I am serving a mission in Barcelona, Spain. I played baseball since I was 6 years old. I love baseball. I played catcher on my high school baseball team; it was really fun and I loved my team! I graduated in a class of 550 students where 10 were members of the Church. Growing up in the South was a great experience. I love the people and love the culture. Most people in the South are Christians so it is awesome how much people love God there. That really has helped me to stay grounded in my faith in Christ. The members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Georgia are so nice and faithful! Their faith is tested day in and day out and for them to be at church every week it shows the strength of the members. I love Georgia and I love the South.

Why I am a Mormon

At the beginning of 2016, I got the opportunity to help teach someone about the gospel of Jesus Christ. At the time, I was not really strong in my faith; I loved Christ and loved His gospel but no where near how much I do now. Teaching this young man taught me that our Father in Heaven loves all of His children and wants them all to feel the happiness that this gospel brings. As I continued to teach this man I grew to love him and now he is one of my best friends. I know that the gospel is true. I know that Jesus Christ loves all of His children. I know that we can be with our families forever. I know that everyone has a chance to hear His gospel and choose to accept it or not. We have the ability to choose to follow Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ loves us. Our Heavenly Father loves us. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the Bible. Just as the Bible prophesies about the coming of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament so does the Book of Mormon. Just as the New Testament teaches about Jesus Christ so does the Book of Mormon. I know that His full gospel has been restored to this Earth. I know Jesus Christ lives.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary for the Church in Barcelona, Spain. I invite others to come unto Jesus Christ in Spain. This helps strengthen my faith everyday. Before my mission I attended church with about 75 18-30 year old kids. It was such a great experience. Most people in the church congregation were new to the gospel and they were all so strong in their faith. I, being a lifetime member of the church, was able to meet so many people who had different religious backgrounds in that congregation. It really helped me strengthen my own faith seeing people that were so new in their faith yet so strong in their beliefs. I love Jesus Christ and the main way I live my faith is by showing Jesus Christ my love.
