Hi I'm Austin Ekenstam

I grew up in a family who loved me and taught me the Gospel. I'm now sharing that with others. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I was raised by a loving family, in a small town. I participated in many events in highschool. I played the cello, played tennis, and participated in pole-vaulting. After high school I went to college. I declared my major as engineering, because I love to build things, know, and figure out how they work.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a "mormon." My family was part of the Church, and through the years I too have come to a knowledge of the things that my family has taught me. I been able to be on my own while at college and during this time I came to know of the love that the Savior has for me. I have a true testimony know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that this is his true church. I testify that through his atonement we can return to live with Heavenly Father. It is truly humbling to know of His sacrifice for us and that I can return to Him and Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith was called by God to be a propeth in this time as profets have been called throughout history. I also know that through Joseph revelation was restored to us in this times to help us return to be with our Father, and that as part of this restored revelation we have the words of the prophets of the Ancient America's in the Book of Mormon. I have read these words and have recognized great blessing and peace that have flowed into my life because of these words, because of this restored gospel.

How I live my faith

I am called to be a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As a missionary I dedicate my life to spreading forth his gospel. My time is dedicated to bringing people closer to Christ through the gospel. I spend my time helping others to know of the joy and peace that I feal im my life by teaching those things that I have been tought in my family, and in the Church, as I have grown up.
