Hi I'm Austin Shupe

I grew up just outside of Las Vegas Nevada. I am currently serving a mission in the Ribeirão Preto Brazil Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Austin. I grew up just outside of Las Vegas Nevada. I have two older brothers and two younger sisters. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Ribeirão Preto Brazil mission!! My favorite sport is baseball. I've played pitcher and second base in high school. I also played football and one year of track and field. Hobbies of mine include being with family and friends, camping, rock climbing, paintballing and pretty much anything outdoors. I love serving a mission, being a servant of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is better than I could have ever imagined. My testimony in this true restored Gospel of Jesus Christ grows a little more each day. I owe everything I have to the Lord and give all glory to my Father In Heaven. I have been so blessed in my life because of everything my Father In Heaven has given me. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I have felt Gods love through sincere prayer and studying of the Book of Mormon. My Father In Heaven continually blesses me when I am obedient to his commandments. I prayed to know for myself if this church is true, and I will never forget the feeling of when my Father in Heaven testified unto me that it was true. I never felt a greater and more right feeling in my life and that is when I KNEW with all my heart that this is the TRUE restored Gospel of Jesus Christ on Earth today.

How I live my faith

I pray each day, multiple times a day asking for guidance on how to help serve those around me and how to live in a way that is pleasing unto my Father in Heaven. I am a Mormon all day everyday, not just on Sundays. I am no where near perfect, but I continue each day to strive to be like Jesus Christ. He set the perfect example for all of the World with his charity and love towards all mandkind when he was sent here. I will do whatever it takes to keep the Lords commandments and represent Him in a way that is pleasing unto Him.
