Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a college student. I play guitar and basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in my 2nd year in college taking up Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology Major in Automotive Technology. I am also trying to find a part time job to help my parents a little bit in the finances. I like to exercise so I regularly go to the gym to workout. During Saturdays, I play basketball with friends in Church. In my free time, I play songs and learn new ones in the guitar. I am the eldest of three siblings in the family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am blessed to be born having both of my parents already members of the Church. I was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church when I was 8 years old. Growing up in the Church is really a blessing as it has guided my life through the years. It is also challenging to gain a testimony of my own of the truthfulness of the Church because then I was living on a borrowed testimony from my parents. I was 18 when I really felt that I should have my own personal testimony in order to stand on my own. I read the Book of Mormon and knelt in prayer asking Heavenly Father if all of this is true. I did so a couple of times before I finally got the answer. It came as a sweet peaceful and joyful feeling of assurance whispering in a voice of perfect mildness that the Church is true.

How I live my faith

After obtaining a personal assurance and testimony that the Church is true, I decided to pause my studies and serve the Lord as a full-time missionary when I was 19. I was assigned to labor in Philippines Butuan Mission. After 2 years of service I returned home and brought with me the discipline and standards I learned from the mission like daily prayer and scripture study. I am now serving as a clerk in the ward where I attend and I also teach classes to prepare members to go to the Temple. Each month we visit individuals and families of the church and find ways to serve them.
