Hi I'm Niklas Aardema

I grew up in North Ogden, Utah. I love playing tennis, drums, and singing. I'm currently a missionary in Austria. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am twenty years old and I grew up in North Ogden, Utah. I have chosen to leave my family and my hometown for 2 years to serve as a missionary for the Church. I absolutely love being a missionary and sharing the joys of the gospel with those around me. I served for about 10 months in Bavaria in southern Germany, then I moved to Salzburg and continued working with the people and the members of the church there for almost 6 months. My most recent assignment is Dornbirn, Austria, which is a smaller town right close to the swiss border. I love the people, country, and language in Bavaria and Austria. I wouldn't trade my mission for anything in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, but as I have continued to build my testimony and develop a better relationship with my savior Jesus Christ, my membership in the church means so much more.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through daily scripture study and prayer, and by attending church each week. I also strive to be an example to those around me and I always try to show others how great life can be if you live the gospel of Jesus Christ and follow His teachings. I have a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and its truthfulness. I strive to build my relationship with my father in heaven by having daily contact with him through prayer. Prayer is something that has really changed my life. I know that god listens to and answers our prayers, and I know that he makes all things possible for us, if we will put our trust in him and let him lead and guide us.
