Hi I'm Brendon LaMay

I grew up in Las Vegas, play trumpet, received my Eagle Scout Award in 2012, and managed a 15-screen movie theater! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest of three boys, and spent most of my time growing up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I went to three different high schools three years in a row in three different states in the U.S. It was fun to experience the differences between these locations. I loved doing Marching Band and National Honor Society at each school! I have always loved music and the arts. Star Wars is something I have always loved! In the recent years, I have also gained a love for casual weightlifting and fitness training, and have studied Biology and Public Health at Universities in Idaho and Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born with both of my parents being members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since then, I have gained my own testimony of His church. I know this church to be true from lots of study, pondering, prayer, and experiencing miracles in my life. With this, I know that this church is true. Without this, I do not know where I would be. This church contains the fulness of His gospel, and allows us to, through our obedience and efforts, be able to live with Him and our families for eternity and be happy right now. I also find comfort in the fact that, like in the scriptures, God continues to speak to modern prophets and apostles today, so that we may have joy and peace today! I continue to follow this gospel because I know that it is true. I know that Jesus loves all people, and is willing to help any that make an effort. I hope to follow Our Savior the best that I can.

How I live my faith

My personal faith, at its core, is centered around my personal relationship with God. For me, this includes study, prayer, and personal reflection on a daily basis. I am so grateful for what I have learned doing these simple things! At this current time, I am serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Central Eurasian Mission- Turkey Region!! I am honored to serve and get to know those who live in Turkey! Although I am away from my family, I love them with all my heart, and know that they and I will be blessed for serving this mission!
