Hi I'm Trey

I was born and raised in San Antonio. I work for Valero Energy Corporation, and I am a mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading books, watching movies (mainly anime), and playing video games (mainly RPG); I am also interested in writing. I am a father of one five year old high-performing autistic son. He's my buddy. I recently graduated with my Master's degree and am now working on computer certifications. I really got into genealogy when my Aunt introduced me to our family history one summer.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I became a Latter Day Saint is because I had a brain tumor when I was a teenager. I survived it and went onto college after high school. After college I wanted to know what the Lord wanted in return for my life. I saw the advertisement for a free Bible on the TV and called the number. The people on the other line asked me if I would like someone to come out and teach me about their religion. I said sure because I was looking for a religion. These two guys called missionaries showed up at my door with a Book of Mormon. The taught me a bit about their religion and told me if I prayed about the Book of Mormon to know if it were true, my prayer would be answered. I did so and the next time I meet with them I knew that the Book was true and by extension that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I got baptized and became a member of the church and haven't looked back.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Family History Consultant, and a Temple Worker. What these callings or positions mean is that I help others gather their family names and take them to the temple to do necessary ordinances that are vital for them to come back to the presence of their Lord and Savior. We do this for those who have passed on without being able to do the ordinances for themselves. I also visit families in our congregation with a companion to bring them a spiritual message and to check on them.
