Hi I'm Jacob

I've lived most of my life in Virginia. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Virginia. I was born in the church. I am serving a mission in Indonesia.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up with parents who were both born and raised in the church definitely helped. But now I'm at the point in my life where I can't rely on my parents for everything. I've made the decision to continue to read the scriptures, pray to Heavenly Father, and go to church every Sunday because I've seen how it has blessed both me and my family.

How I live my faith

I've been an active member pretty much my whole life. I love those around me. I pray and read my scriptures often. I have begun my mission and now I am studying the Gospel in a new language. I can tell that God is helping learn this language along the way. I know that the Gift of Tongues is real. I do my best to live by the mission rules. I have taught several lessons now in Indonesian, a language that I couldn't speak at all not too long ago. As long as I try to speak the language, God will help me more and more along the way. He won't just give me the ability right away, I have to struggle with it at first in order to know it. The harder I work to know this language and study the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the more God helps me to teach others and have them feel the power of the Holy Ghost.
