Hi I'm Elder Austin Sherman

I'm a missionary. I love Jesus. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and i am currently a missionary for the Mormon church. I am the oldest of 3 in my family and have 2 younger sisters. I love my family so much and i love being with them. I grew up in Utah and four years ago moved to San Antonio, Texas and that's where my family is now. Before my mission i loved to go golfing, snowboarding, camping, motorcycle riding, and hanging out with friends and family. I've been a member of the Church my whole life and i love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church not only because I was born into a family that was already LDS but because I have come to know for myself that this gospel is true through the power of the holy ghost. I know that this Church is true and that it was restored by Joseph Smith and that he saw Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father in the Sacred Grove. I also know that through prayer we can commune with our heavenly father so that we can strive to live worthy in his eyes. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God and that he receives direct revelation from Him so that we can be able to heed his counsel and know what we need to do in these Latter Days. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that he died for me so that I can be able to live with him again and also so that I can be with my family for time and all eternity. My testimony and the knowledge of this gospel is crucial for me because it gives me an understanding of this world and the world to come and I am so grateful for this knowledge.

How I live my faith

I try my best to do what Jesus would do if He were here with me. I go to church every Sunday and watch and listen to the Prophet and the Apostles every 6 months because they truly are called and ordained servants of God. As a missionary i do my best to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all men so that all men might come unto Him and be saved. For truly the Gospel of Jesus Christ is "the power of God unto salvation." That is why i try to live it and help others to live it as well so that they might have peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come.
