Hi I'm S. Austin Spencer

I grew up in the small town of Bluewater, New Mexico, USA. I am a missionary in Indiana, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn and I love to have fun. I love to go shooting, riding ATV's, Paintballing, biking, off-roading, and camping. I love to work on cars and mechanics. I love to weld and do shop work and I love to praise the Lord. I am a single man of 19 and live my life in reckless abandon at times just like everyone else. I went to college for one year and now am currently serving a full-time mission in Indiana. I love missionary work. I have done stuff in the past that I am not proud of but through Christ and His atonement I was able to be forgiven for that and move on. I love Him and I am trying to pay Him back as much as I can but I'll never pay back fully for what he did for me. I enjoy spending time with my family and being around them and I love to be outdoors and feel the peace from that.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and raised in a good home where I was taught things very well and I was taught to apply them in my life. But that's not why I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because I read the book of Mormon and Prayed about it and I was assured of it's truth. Noone can read the Book of mormon and not know it's true. I also went through a stupid period of my life and I was able to feel Gods love for me through the atoning sacrifice of His so Jesus Christ. I know they love all of us and that this is a true Church. I know that there is no way that this church could function without a prophet and his revelation. I know that there is a living prophet that leads us today and that he recieves revelation from God for all his people and I know that he holds all the Priesthood keys that were lost when Christ and His ministry were killed and wiped off of the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing little things every day that help me follow Christ and be more like Him. I also do the big things but it's the small stuff that really gets me. I try everyday to be loving toward everyone and I try to read the scriptures and pray every day and I try to help others come unto Christ. I am now a Missionary of the Lord and I am preaching the gospel for two years. let me say this, I WOULD NOT be serving if I did not KNOW it was true. Two years is a long time but it is what the Lord wants and that's what I'm doing because I know it's true.
