Hi I'm Gregory Orion Lakis

I was born into the LDS church. I live with my younger brother and Dad. My father is not LDS.

About Me

I attended college for a year and plan on returning after a mission. I am majoring in Chemical Engineering. I enjoy hunting, backpacking, and baseball. I am an eagle scout. I am also a musician. I play trombone for my university jazz, concert, and marching band.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God is our father and creator. He sent Jesus Christ to the earth for all of us. Jesus established his church on the earth during his ministry. I know that only God can run His church. I know that he has given us a prophet on the earth in order to do that. The Lord's prophet receives revelation from Him for the people of the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon contains the words of God and is a tool for us to become closer to him. God has provided an eternal plan for all of us.

How I live my faith

I attend my university single's ward weekly. I am called as an assistant ward missionary. The calling involves weekly meetings to help get the ward more involved in missionary work. I work to help members feel welcome and involved. I am serving a mission because I want to share God's plan for us.
