Hi I'm Austin

I'm a Navy brat, an architecture student, an Auburn Tiger and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary serving in Curitiba, Brasil. I am 19 years old. I have two younger brothers. Since my Dad is a pilot in the Navy, I have lived in 11 cities in 10 different states. Moving so often has given me the chance to experience a variety of cultures throughout the U.S. and the world. I have had the opportunity to travel to 5 foreign countries and I hope to be able to travel to many more. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing sports, particularly lacrosse and soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

Because of my moving around so much and from my experiences I know no greater joy can come from any other source than the gospel of Jesus Christ. I grew up in the church and through this experience I have gained a knowledge of the gospel. Later on in my youth I received a firsthand testimony of the truthfulness of this church. Through powerful spiritual experiences, as well as meaningful personal study and prayer I have come to know of the truthfulness of this church and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and this church has been restored by the Prophet Joesph Smith.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission for 2 years in Curitiba, Brazil. I'm priveleged to have the opprotunity to serve the people of Brazil. I know how my faith has blessed my life and I'm excited to share that happiness with others. I look for ways to serve others around me.
