Hi I'm Jay Syme

I am a Mississippi Mormon and have been called to serve the people of Teresina Brazil as a representative of Jesus Chris.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5 children in my family. I have 3 brothers and one sister. My mom and dad are happily married and set a wonderful example to me and my siblings. I recently graduated high school with a 4.0 and was the captain of the soccer team. I love to hunt, fish, camp, play sports, and do pretty much anything outdoors. I will be serving my two year mission with the people of Teresina Brazil beginning November 1, 2016. I love this gospel and can't wait to share it with Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

I fully believe this gospel is true. I know it is true and know the teachings are true. I have felt the spirit many times because of this gospel. I know that I have been blessed beyond measure due to this gospel and living its standards. I know that God will bless those that strive to follow him and keep his commandments. I know the Book of Mormon is true. It is not a book to replace the Bible. It is here to compliment the Bible. The Bible and Book of Mormon work hand in hand. It is another testament of Jesus Christ during his time in the Americas. I know that God gave us prophets so that we may be able to receive revelation for the church and its members. I know that Joseph smith was a true prophet of God and saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. I know that he was truly inspired of God and that God helped him throughout his life and helped him translate the Book of Mormon. I know that God wants us to live worthy of his presence and loves us beyond measure. And I fully believe that we can return to live with him again as long as we live worthy of it. And I can promise that the only way to do that is to live this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the commandments of God and serving those I see in need of service. I strive to find those in need of help and offer them that help they need. I am also a Eagle Scout. Living the scout law and oath coincides with the values and principles that we as Mormons strive to live. I love to teach and love to help people just as Jesus Christ did in his minister on this earth. I strive to live like Jesus.
