Hi I'm Jake Welling

I'm from the United States and I've been called on a mission to Brazil and I'm a Mormon

About Me

This year I graduated from high school. Right after I graduated I spent part of summer semester at College. Now I'm waiting to go on my mission. I love to listen to music, I like a lot of music that is not on the radio and some of my favorite bands right now are Beck, Beirut, and Noah and the Whale. I also like to learn new things, just recently I learned all of the countries of the world and I can name them if I'm looking at a map. I also really like to play soccer and basketball with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that God loves us. He wants us to be happy. He lifts us when we are down and helps us when we don't feel like we can be helped. I believe that the church makes it more possible for Christ to communicate with us and teach us necessary things that will help us better ourselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures. I really like the stories and teachings that are in them. They teach me about Christ and help me become more like Him. I also like to go to church to be taught and to be able to feel the spirit and God's love for me. Recently I got my mission call to go teach and serve the people of Brazil. I hope that while I'm a missionary my faith with be increased and I will have a greater knowledge of our savior.
