Hi I'm Trevor Morreall

I grew up in upstate New York. I love sports and fettuccine alfredo. Im a missionary in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the middle of three kids, and also the only son. I went to BYU-Idaho for a year where I studied applied mathematics. I played baseball, basketball, and football growing up, and was a pitcher on my high school's baseball team. I love sports, math, and food. My favorite food is fettuccine alfredo. I'm currently serving as a missionary in the Nevada Las Vegas mission from September 16th, 2015 to September 20th, 2017, and I'm loving it!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true church. I grew up in the church, but I never really gained my own testimony until I got older. When I was seventeen, my mom was diagnosed with a severe form of brain cancer. Many doctors and other medical professionals believed that she would only live between nine and fifteen months after diagnosis. After she was diagnosed, I struggled. I couldn't understand why something so difficult could happen to my family. I thought since families were essential to God's plan, there was no way that things like that should happen. However, my mom displayed a tremendous example of faith and endurance. She fought for over two years, and still maintained the same faith in Heavenly Father throughout her battle. During her battle, I felt the Spirit more often, and started to gain a testimony of the Plan of Salvation. As she endured, I gained a greater understanding of enduring to the end. I studied the scriptures and learned that if we "endure to the end [we] shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God." (D&C 14:7). Though she is on the other side now, I've learned that Heavenly Father knows us, and cares about us. I know that trials are put forth in our lives so that we may learn and grow from them. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that families can be together forever. Losing my mom has strengthened my desire to be a missionary, and has provided many miracles on my mission where I can relate to those who have had similar situations. I'm grateful to have the gospel in my life!

How I live my faith

Growing up, I was very involved in my church's youth program. I worked with other youth to help plan activities, such as dances, conferences, and other events. I played baseball in high school, and was the only member of the Church on my team. I also was a member of Technology Club at my school, where we built many robotics and other projects. I played the trombone for seven years in both local and school bands, and was a member of the Boy Scouts of America. I was the only Mormon in school, other than my siblings, for most of my life. These many experiences have given me the opportunity to teach and to lead by example, and now I get to do so as a missionary!!

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Trevor Morreall
The family is the most essential unit of the Church. Families can be a source of learning, strength, and joy. The home can be a place of refuge during difficult times. Home is where we can learn and grow the most, and having a supporting and loving family plays a huge part in that learning and growth. Show more Show less
