Jacob Snow, a 21-year-old returned missionary from Utah, is very cultured.
The last two years of his life were spent serving the people of Guadalajara, Mexico, which involved learning the language, eating the food, and using the language to try to convince people that his way of life is best.
“I am truly blessed,” said the former Elder Snow in his homecoming talk last weekend, “to have grown up around Jesus Christ’s church in Utah. I am also very grateful to have had the chance to enrich lives in Mexico for the last two years, and to become part of their culture as I taught them about their Lamanite origins.”
Jacob considers himself “truly changed” by his mission experience, and has been wooing freshman BYU girls with his taquito-making skills since arriving back on campus. He is ensuring that he doesn’t lose his deep cultural connection to the country and people of Mexico by offering class prayers in Spanish, seeking out friendships with those who also served missions in Mexico, flirting with Latina girls, and offering sacrament meeting prayers in Spanish.
When asked what his favorite part about Mexican culture is, Jacob said, “How humble everyone is. Or the food. Jaja.”
