Hi I'm Gideon Rhea

I grew up in St. Anthony Idaho. I just got my mission call to Fukuoka Japan, my most favorite place in the world and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in the Madison Memorial Hospital in Rexburg Idaho, I grew up in Saint Anthony Idaho, I had lived there for about 13 years when we were evicted from our house. We were homeless for a few days while we made arrangements to move to Utah. About two years after moving to Utah my dad couldn't find a job and so we were forced to move again to Payson Arizona where we are currently living. My father unexpectedly passed away about three months ago. I recently got my mission call, At first I got called to Jakarta Indonesia, but the we got a call from the church that Indonesia was making it hard to get visa's so they reassigned to Fukuoka Japan. My older brother also just got his mission call to Tokyo Japan, crazy right? I love singing, acting, hanging out with friends and dressing up and portraying a character (thats about the same thing as acting but I wanted to be specific, basically I like stage acting.) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE anime and all things Japanese.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church because the missionaries taught my dad which led him to marry my mother which led to me. I stay true to the gospel of Jesus Christ because I love him and I can't put into words how much I love and appreciate the Atonement and I would be a miserable person we didn't have our lives. I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is gods true church upon the earth today. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet of God. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon through the will and power of God. I know the Thomas S. Monson is Gods prophet on the earth today. I know that we are all Gods children and that he wants us all to return to him, what kind of father wouldn't want his precious children to return to him. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and of the cross of Calvary, without this everything we have ever done wrong would haunt us and we would be lost forever and there would be no point to this life. I know that he rose from the dead and broke the bands of death that we too may be resurrected and become perfect like our Heavenly Father and live with him again. I love my family and I know that we can be together forever through the blessings of the temple. I love this gospel and I say these things in the name of Jesus Chris amen.

How I live my faith

I just try to set an example for those around me.
