Hi I'm Vaughn

I grew up in Hawaii, Im currently serving a mission in Missouri, I love Metal and Cliff Jumping, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised LDS, but of my parents, only my mother is a member of the church. Even though i was raised LDS, i didnt know that it was true until I was 17. I was born in Hong Kong China, and moved to Maui Hawaii when i was almost 3 years old. I lived there until I was about 14, and then i moved to Las Vegas. I love to play guitar, and hang out with my friends. I love anything to do with the water, Cliff Jumping, wake boarding, free diving etc. I also love fireworks and anything to do with fire. I love just about everything when it comes to music, but i have a special love for metal. I am a guitarist, and played in a ska band all through High School, but i have given that up for 2 years to serve a full time mission in both Missouri and Kansas.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church, and i feel that i didnt really understand what it was that i believed. In high school I didnt really know whether the things i had been taught as a child were true. Because of this, I didnt know if i wanted to follow the example of others in the LDS church and serve a full time mission. I have A couple of my friends who are now serving on full time missions that were on the same page as me, in that we didnt want to dedicate 2 years of our life to full time service. We had other plans for our lives and we all wanted to jump right into life. However, some experiences in our lives caused us to gradually change our minds. It all came down to praying and asking heavenly father if the book of mormon was true. If it was true, then Joseph Smith was a prophet, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints truly is his church on the earth today. As we read and prayed, we all recieved this witness for ourselves by the power of the holy ghost. Now i know for a fact that this is his church once again established on the earth. Im grateful for the testimony that i have recieved. It has given me peace and direction in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission in Kansas and Missouri.
