Hi I'm Austin

I'm a Mormon, and I live to put the ball in the back of the net.

About Me

My name is Austin and I have been a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints my whole life. Like everyone else I too had to come to a knowledge that the teachings of the Church were true and not just something that I was brought up on. I have had my own struggles and my own faith leaping obstacles that I have had to hurdle over. I am 21 years old and live in San Diego, CA. and am currently serving a full-time 2 year mission for the church. I love soccer and have played it most of my life and plan to play in college in Utah. Most important, I am a believer in our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ and His teachings. I am a Mormon because I know the Book Of Mormon to be the inspired work of God. I am a Mormon because I know that the priesthood of God has been restored on the Earth again and the Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. I am a Mormon because I know that Thomas S. Monson is the living Prophet on the Earth today and that he speaks to us with authority from our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures everyday, go to church once a week, I pray everyday, and I follow the commandments. I fast at least once a month and donate the money for the food I would have eaten to those who do not have the money to eat.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Austin
Mormon missionaries proselyte because #1 it is a commandment from the Savior, also because the Gospel of Jesus Christ has given them so much that they want to share it with as many people as they can, even if it means knocking on your door. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Austin
The Book of Mormon is a record of people in the ancient America's from the time of 600 B.C. to 421 A.D. and talks about God's children in this part of the world and there dealings with God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Just like how the Gospel was taught in the Bible in the middle-eastern part of the world, so was the Gospel taught to the people in the western part of the world because God loves his children no matter where they are. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, like the Old and the New testament, the Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus is the Christ. It also provides convincing evidence to the world that Joseph Smith is truly a prophet of God.   Show more Show less
