Hi I'm Austin (Pob Zeb)

I'm a computer guru, I'm a network wizard, and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I love computers and movies. I love to learn about computers and how to make them do what I need them to do. I love making short movies and what not. I would love to one day be in Hollywood working on a big movie! Well see about that, it would be my dream. I also am a very shy person I don't really say much. I don't like to make people mad or sad. I like to talk with people though, once I get to know them. I like to learn new things as well. I love science and technology. I like reading about new things that are coming out. I'm on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints right now. I am serving in Roseville, California speaking Hmong (You can just Google it to find out what Hmong is). I've found out so much about life by doing this and I know that I have changed for the better through going on this mission right now.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all my life but the reason why I have chosen to keep going and to still be a member is because I know that this church is true. It happen when I read the Book of Mormon all the way through and prayed to God about it. I asked God if The Book of Mormon is true and I can testify to you that he did answer me and he told me that it was true. And from there I knew that Joseph Smith was a Prophet and that he restored Jesus' Church on this Earth again. I know that God is real and that his Son, Jesus is the Christ. I know that Jesus saved us from the punishment of our sins and he also allowed us to live with God after we die. I know that this Church is true and that a prophet leads it.

How I live my faith

I've learned that knowing about God and doing what he asks is hard. A few of the ways that I have lived my faith is I've tried to follow the expample of Jesus by try to be a good person. For me that means to be nice to people, not be self-centered. I try to make sure that other people have what they need and want so that they can be happy in their life. I do this for as much as a I can, because you can't help everyone. Another way is by praying and reading the scriptures. I pray morning and night. I've learned that I can have a relationship with my Loving Heavenly Father through prayer. I always find out something else that I can do to help other people through prayer. I learn that I need to do what God wants me to do and that will bring me happiness. I also go to church every week. I believe that God wants us to do that and not only that, but to keep Sunday Holy. Not to just have Sunday as a day to play, but to rest and worship the Lord. And last of all, I am a missionary! I go and teach about our Loving Heavenly Father every day.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Austin (Pob Zeb)
They will share a message about how much our Heavenly Father love us. They want the best for you and they know that they have a message that will help you. Once you let them in they will get to know you and then invite you to learn more about Jesus Christ. They will talk about the Prophet Joseph Smith and God's Plan for us and what everyone must to do to follow Jesus Christ. They then will invite you to follow his example and be baptized by someone holding the priesthood authority of God. Show more Show less

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Austin (Pob Zeb)
When Jesus Christ established his church he called the 12 Apostles, he told them that they will lead the church when he leaves and to teach the world about his Gospel. Because today we have that same church, restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith, by the authority of God, we have 12 Apostles today to do the same things that Jesus first told the Apostles to do. It's a great blessing to know that God is always the same, and this is one way that he tells us that. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Austin (Pob Zeb)
We should have faith in Jesus Christ. He is our savior of our souls. With out faith in him, we can not progress after this life, we can not be forgiven of our sins. Jesus Christ has done everything for us. He is the perfect example, he told us about his gospel. He atone and died for us. He is one that all our faith should be put into. This is done through baptism and remembering him every moment of our lives. Show more Show less
