Hi I'm Trajan

I love my family and music. I'm a football player. I'm a missionary in Jacksonville, FL. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5 kids in my family and have been born to two goodly parents.My dad is from Samoa and my mom is from Northern Nevada. I love my culture & heritage and I live it everyday! My family is my foundation and I am eternally grateful for each of them. Some things that I really enjoy doing is playing football or any other sport! I also play football for BYU. Go Cougars!! I love being outdoors and doing something. I like to go camping, fishing, hiking, etc. I am currently serving a 2 year mission in the Florida Jacksonville Mission which has and will continue to change my life. I love every second of being a missionary! For the most part I am a fan of MUSIC! It's hard to narrow down to just one genre of music ,but I usually listen to a lot of country & reggae! I love the beach even though I don't live by one but there is nothing like being by the ocean! I would rather spend time with my family then go out with some friends! I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon and Bible are true, Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, and that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real. It is through the Book of Mormon, Bible, and Joseph Smith that I came to knowledge of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. It is crazy to think that because of the love of Jesus Christ He was able to take on every sickness, affliction, sin, emotion, etc of every person to ever walk the earth. He thought about every one of us at one point in His suffering and now we can know that we will be like Him one day and live! We all make mistakes. We all fall down a deep hole and it seems that we cannot get out. The walls seem too steep and too slippery. We can barely see the light at the top of the tunnel and we lose hope for everything. But as we have faith in our Savior we will know that at the top of the hole Jesus Christ is waiting with a ladder and a hand to lift us up. He has never lost hope for us and will always love us. We are divine children of God. When we realize that we will feel the love He has for each and every one of us. Because of His sacrifice I can be with my family forever. Of this i testify in the name of our loving Savior, Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I show my faith by spreading the gospel to everyone I know or come in contact with. I know that The Book of Mormon is true and that the restored gospel is back here on the earth. The joy and happiness that it brings into my life is indescribable and I can't help but try to give everyone else the chance to gain that same happiness. As a missionary we "invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end."I show my faith by doing that very thing. Invinting others to live and have that same joy in their lives. Another way I show my faith is by example. Being the oldest you are some what born with a responsibility to be the example to your younger siblings and I know that living this gospel everyday in my life will lead me on the right path to set the best example. As we strive to become more live our Savior we know that we are doing what we are supposed to because He lived a perfect life. As we do that we will feel His love for each and every one of us and know that one day through our efforts we will be like Him one day!

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

As missionaries our purpose is to bring people closer to Christ. we share multiple messages that can strengthen your faith in Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. We teach specifically about the restored gospel through Joseph Smith known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or in other words, the Mormons. We talk about how the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and doesn't discredit the Bible but provides another witness to it. We share God's plan for us known as the plan of salvation and ultimately how we can live righteous lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ. All of these things gives us the chance to return and live with our Heavenly Father and as missionaries we invite others to do just that. Show more Show less
