Hi I'm Trever

Im serving a mission in Florida I love Jeeping, Rock Climbing, Hunting and anything else to do with the Outdoors, and Im a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a mission in Florida Fort Lauderdale at this time. I love football, Rock Climbing, Rock Crawling, Hunting, Fishing, and pretty much anything else that has to do the with Outdoors. I'm the youngest of 4. I am thinking about going in to the Air force when I'm finished with my mission for Aviation mechanics. I love working with my hands, fixing things and helps others.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I grew up in the church but that doesn't mean I always lived it. From when i could decide to not go until i was almost 18 i didn't attend church or really care to much about church stuff. My friends helped me to come back to the church and for the first time I started reading the book of Mormon. I never revived a noticeable spiritual conformation that it was true but i continued working at it and now as i look back at how my life has changed seance then I can not deny that it is true. The blessings that have come to my family are innumerable. I know that this is the true church because no 14 year old boy with a 3rd grad education could wright the book of Mormon and have it teach so about the savior. Satan is an enemy to God and always will be, He would not inspire anyone to wright a book so full of the spirit of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My conversion has come over time slowly but surly I now know the church is true and none or anything can take that away form me.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my Faith by serving a 2 year mission in South Florida. For the Past year and a half or so I have been doing my best to spread the good news of the Restored Gospel to the great people of South Florida. It's not easy but it is sure worth it. When i return home i will continue to do my best to move the kingdom along. We get asked all the time as missionary's if we are doing this to "Become and Paster or Bishop" the answer is no, we don't "Work up" a latter or anything. All calls come form God by those who have been called by him already. When i get home I could do anything form being a Sunday school teacher or a door greeter. what ever the Lord wants me to do at that time.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Self-reliance in important because if you are always worrying about your own needs you cant help other with theirs. We are here to be more like the Savior and His life was spent in the service of everyone around him. The more self-reliant we are the easier we can help others to become so. You also fill much better not have to rely on others for your support all the time. Show more Show less
