Hi I'm Jake

I'm a surfer, I'm a missionary, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and I really like extreme sports especially surfing and wake-boarding. I love the ocean and I am an avid scuba diver. Since I am a missionary right now I am not in school but I plan to go to college when I get home and get married and start my career.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love our Savior Jesus Christ and through reading the Book of Mormon I know that this is his true church on the earth today. I have seen miracles happen in my life and as I continually strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ I am truly happy. There is a very special feeling of peace and belonging that I feel being a member of the church and I can't imagine where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Washington DC area. I am a missionary because I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and I have been so lucky to be able to be a part of this amazing church and I have seen the way that it has blessed my life and I wanted to share that with others so that everyone can have the peace and joy that come with knowing why we are here on this earth, where we came from before this life, and where we are going after we die.
