Hi I'm Jake Roper

I live in Utah, I have been called to serve in the Argentina Buenos Aires mission, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am eighteen years of age and I have just recently received my mission call to serve in the Argentina Buenos Aires East Mission! I will be there from December 2017 through 2019. I do love sports, mostly for entertainment, but I have participated in some for competition. Tennis is above all my favorite sport to play but I can watch just about anything else. I love to make others smile. I draw so much happiness out of seeing someone else feel good inside and express that feeling outside. Whether it's telling a silly joke or using my usual sense of humor, I do what it takes to help people feel joy.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up it has been the church and religion that I have always known. However there comes a time in each person's life that they must decide for themselves what they truly believe. Even on Sunday mornings when I felt tired or did not want to get out of bed, I still found myself at my weekly church worship services participating in my meetings and trying my best to fulfill my callings. As I have grown older, I have truly come to know and appreciate what it means to be a member of Christs church. I am grateful for the knowledge I have of eternal families, that I can live with my earthly family forever in the next life, and that I have a loving God who knows all things, and sent His son Jesus Christ to be the perfect example for us to follow. I continually strive to be like Him and know that through him and in Him, I can be be perfected.

How I live my faith

I have had not only the opportunity, but the privilege of serving as the president (first assistant) in all three age advancements of the Aaronic Priesthood. I have always had the opportunity of being a leader, and I have loved it. I love being able to work along side each member of my group to see that they are able to succeed, as well as teaching and simply loving all. Aside from my callings, I have been a lifelong member of the church and it is my calling to serve and invite all to come unto Christ. I constantly do my best to reach out to others, of all faiths, and show Christlike love to any and all.
