Hi I'm Jackson

I grew up in Minnesota in the U.S. I'm about to go on my mission to Apia Samoa. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in the Midwest for most of my life. I was a cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, but I will soon be leaving to go on my mission to Samoa. I plan on returning there after my mission. I have 2 siblings, and a dog. In my spare time, I enjoy playing rugby and basketball. I enjoy watching sports and working out.

Why I am a Mormon

There was a time in college when I was going through a pretty dark period of my life. I felt like there wasn't any hope, and that I was alone. I felt that I should pray, and so I did. I felt an embrace, even though nobody was there, and I knew that Heavenly Father loved me, and he knew what I was going through. I know that the Church is true, and that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, and that he restored the gospel as it is today.

How I live my faith

Currently I am an instructor in my local Elder's quorum, which is the organization in our local wards where the men congregate. I enjoy ministering to those families which I have been assigned.
