Hi I'm Aaron

I grew up in Hamilton, New Zealand. I love the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and surfing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into a loving family of 2 parents and 5 older sisters. I have lived a pretty normal life in 'the land of the long white cloud' and loved every minute of it. I spent a large portion of my life at the beach doing things that I love; Surfing, fishing, Hunting, camping, etc. I studied Chemical Engineering for 1 year at University but am currently taking a break to serve a full time volunteer mission for the church here in Tokyo Japan. I have been raised in a very family centered environment and that is what I hold most dear to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church by parents who loved me. For a lot of my life I went to Church simply because thats what my family did and I always felt happy while I was there with family and friends. However, it got to a stage where this wasn't enough and I had to gain a testimony for myself. After much time spent reading the scriptures and in prayer I can say with all my heart that this Gospel is the recipe for true and lasting happiness! This Gospel, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has blessed me in every aspect of my life; I have grown up in a strong family that have so much love for each other, I have been blessed with the drive to get an education, I have enjoyed friendships with those that share the same values as me. All this has given me so much Joy in my life and continues to give me happiness.

How I live my faith

I have always tried my best to give service to those around me and spread the joy that the Gospel has given me, whether it be chopping wood for the Elderely or befriending someone who is having a hard time. I strive to do that which I know is right and live everyday the best I can. Right now I am serving a volunteer mission here in Tokyo Japan where I have the opportunity everyday to spread the Joy of the Gospel to the wonderful people of Japan, and loving every minute of it!
