Hi I'm Trey Brooksby

I lived in Las Vegas until I was 11 years old, I build movie sets, I am a computer programmer, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Trey Brooksby and I am 19 years old. I received my mission call to the Japan, Tokyo mission. I have lived many places in utah but my favorite place to live is Las Vegas, where I grew up for 11 years. I love hot weather, access to so much to do, and how hot weather makes people chill. I have 9 siblings, 2 of which served missions in Korea and Portugal.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are mormon, so I was kind of born into it, but it really became a personal decision to be in this church for me when I was about 12 years old. I knew many of the book of mormon stories and a lot of the doctrine, and to me it just made sense. There were ancient civilizations, and if so they would have had records or history, and if so and they were destroyed their language would have been untranslatable by even the most prestigious linguistics, and if so then there could be no other way under heaven or earth for that book to have been translated, exept by divine intervention, and if so there should be a prophet by which this was fulfilled. This is my testimony and my knowledge, and that is why I chose to be a member of this church.

How I live my faith

The best way can serve my Lord right now is share the gospel, but I have also become an eagle scout, joined in making videos to help chilren with autism, and took care of my 7 youngest siblings

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Trey Brooksby
We beleve in God the Eternal Father, in his Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. We beleve that God is an individual being of flesh and bones. We also beleve that Jesus Christ is his Only Begotten Son in the flesh and that he is one with the Father in purpose, but also has his own body of flesh and blood. We similarly beleve in the Holy Ghost, a being of spirit that is a heavenly messenger that communicates to our spirits through thoughts and feelings and has the purpose of guiding us through this mortal life.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Trey Brooksby
It is a commandment from god to preach his gospel, but every one of us has a main reason that we want to share the gospel. It is the hope of every active member of this church that they discover a good reason to be on their mission. For me personally, I came on a mission because I know it is true and want to share this message and this happiness with everyone I can, and the Lord has decided I start my full-time service in Japan, but I intend to continue to share the message of this gospel for the rest of my life.
