Hi I'm Josh Jamile

I grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am serving a mission in St. Louis, Missouri.

About Me

I like sports and music. I am a student at BYU Provo, but currently serving a mission in St. Louis, Missouri.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother's side of the family dates back to the early days of the LDS church. I had ancestors who crossed the plains as pioneers. I am the first member on my father's side of the family, which is mostly made up of native hawaiians. The LDS faith gives me such great feelings of peace and joy that I love.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in the Missouri, St. Louis mission. I have the opportunity to serve and preach the gospel to the people in that area. I was one of a few called to serve in Ferguson, MO during the outbreak of riots over the Police shooting of Mike Brown. That part of my mission and time of my life has been one of the greatest experiences and has helped me draw nearer to the Lord than ever before. I am so grateful for that experience and to be trusted to share the gospel and serve the Lord in that community at that time in history.
