Last week to write to Jake in the MTC! Jake only has one week left in the MTC. He is not sure where he will be going, because he has not received his VISA. Many of the missionaries are having their calls changed.

Jake Is excited to share the Gospel and his testimony!
Jakes Testimony
"I don't think I can do full Justice in this letter to how I feel, but I will try.
Plain and simple no doubt in my mind this church is true. This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is not just a part of our lives, it is our lives! This is the reason that we are here. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is everything. Before coming here I knew this, but here things just click so simply. I know without a doubt that it is true. We are either growing closer to God or growing apart, there is no third direction.

I am starting to better understand what charity is. Charity is one of the biggest parts of this GOspel. Without it we aren't coming unto Christ. A big part of charity is sharing what you know ,having others come unto Christ with your help. If you understand this Gospel you should be dying to share it. The more that I understand, the more I want to get out of here and start telling everyone! Through reading the Book of Mormon and prayer there is no way that you can deny this is true. I feel so bad for those without this knowledge, because What is lie to them? Joseph Smith was a great prophet of God, who did great things. I have a realization more and more , this is not about Joseph Smith. This is about what he restored. He restored the full Gospel of Christ and the Priesthood Authority, to live it. This is His Gospel. We need accept Him and use His Atonement. If we do this then anything and everything is possible. This is why I am here. I cannot sit around and call myself a follower of Christ. I need to be helping others learn what I know. I know this to be true in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."
