Hi I'm Austin Johnson

I was born in Arizona, I play rugby, im serving my mission in Oaxaca Mexico and Im a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name Austin and i love being Mormon! I was born and lived half of my life in Arizona and when I was 10 we moved to Utah and we have been there ever since. Right now i am serving my mission in Oaxaca Mexico. For those of you who have never heard of Oaxaca the movie Nacho Libre was filmed here! For those of you who have not seen the movie well then you are out of luck! haha Well somethings i like to do is play sports. I love sports. I have at least tried every sport imaginable. But the one sport that i love the most Rugby. Oh my goodness rugby is the greatest sport known to man. My position on the field is called hook. And it is so much fun. Also i love watching sports. My favorite sport to watch (Next to rugby) is Basketball. I dont know why but there is something about it! I am a die hard Suns fan. Steve Nash is my hero. haha I also kind of like the Jazz, if the suns are out of the playoffs ill root for the Jazz. haha! Something else you gotta know about me is that i am just a fun loving and opened minded guy. I am willing to try anything new just for the experience. If i dont like something I can at least say I tried it right? Also i love music. So like I said before I am in Oaxaca Mexico serving the Lord. It has been great so far. The culture here is WAY different than quiet Utah. Just something new for me to experience. But I love being a missionary. It is so great meeting amazing and humble people who have been waiting for this amazing message.

Why I am a Mormon

Why i am a Mormon is probably the easiest question in the world. I am a Mormon because I know this church is the only true church. Other churches have some truth but this one is the only church with every truth. I was born in the church but that doesnt mean i was born with a testimony of this Church. Just like everyone else I had to find out for myself. And i did and that is why i am here serving my mission. I am so happy to be apart of this church. Knowing that Christ suffered and died for me is really amazing. And i know that he suffered because He loves me and He wants me to return and live with Him and Heavenly Father again. Having that knowlege is what makes me happy. Through this church we can live with Heavenly Father and our families forever. I know without a doubt that this is the Church of Jesus Christ and that it was restored through Joseph Smith. And he did translate the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I left my family for two years, so I can show other families how they can live together forever.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I participate in all of the activities that we do every Sunday. Not only do i go to Church on Sunday, I live everyday following the commandments the best that I can. Its not just a weekly thing, its my entire life. And now im serving a mission!
