Hi I'm Austin

I live in South Riding Virginia, I am a huge fan of rock climbing, Snowboarding, and Basketball, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving a 2 year mission in the Washington DC area. I have had the opportunity for the last 2 years to serve the Lord, and bring others to Christ. It has been a joy seeing others change their lives and find so much happiness in living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Before I left on my 2 year mission, I lived in St. George Utah for about 6 years with my parents and brother. While going to High School, I enjoyed many of the outdoor activities that St. George has to offer, such as rock climbing, snowboarding, wake boarding, 4 wheeling, hiking, camping, and many other activities. I have some great memories living there! The other part of my life takes place in Orange County California, where I spent the first 13 years of my life. Being a beach bum was great! Spending time at many of the local beaches, with a few really good friends, was the life! Living in California and Utah were 2 totally different experiences. I learned so much from each place that I lived, and am grateful for the experience of growing up in both places. I love being a member of this church, and am grateful for all the experiences it brings into my life! I have seen the Lord lead me throughout my life, and know he is there for me when I need him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the gospel and am so blessed to have a great family. They raised me in the gospel helping me to understand everything taught in the gospel and everthing asked of us! I have always been planning on serving a mission ever since I was little! I have not always had a burning testimony about the gospel, but through my experiences the Lord as allowed me to endour, I have gained a stronger testimony about many different gospel principals! I love this gospel and i have seen the TRUE happiness it can bring through the spirit, and cant wait to learn more as I serve my mission!

How I live my faith

i live my faith by being an example to others through my actions! Attending all church meetings and activities, doing everthing the Prophet and Apostles say, and strive to live the gospel through scripture study, prayer, and faith in Jesus Christ.
