Hi I'm Preston

I was born in Idaho. My family moved to New Mexico when I was a year old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play strategy games mostly, but I also like a good role-playing game. I also like games like solitaire and chess. I like to read and to go four wheeling as well. I like a good story. The thing I have always wanted to do was create my own software to make someone's life easier or more happy. I have always been interested in creating video games.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with it. I prayed about it and found out for myself that it is the right church. I've had too many experiences that confirm it to ever question it.

How I live my faith

I have left everything at home to serve a full-time two year mission in South Carolina. Every day I meet new people and teach them about this gospel. I help them to know it is true by having them pray about it and getting the witness from the Holy Ghost that it is the path for them. I love my mission and I would not trade the time I have spent here so far for even the best role-playing game or strategy game. I know that because of this, I will be able to help many people much more than I would have had I not come on a mission. My mission has changed me, and it continues to change me. I am slowly molding into the person that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father want me to be.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Preston
Yes. He came to visit the Americas to fulfill the promise he made in John 10:16 which says: "Other sheep I have which are not of this fold, them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one Shepard." In the book of 3 Nephi in the Book of Mormon in chapter 15 verse 21 Jesus Christ tells the people of the Americas that they are the ones he was talking about and he explains it a little farther in verses 22-24. The only way you can know for sure, however, is to read from the Book of Mormon, and pray to know if it is true. God will tell you through your feelings that it is true. Once you know this, you will know that Jesus Christ really did appear in the Americas. Show more Show less
