Hi I'm Aaron

I'm from Germany. I'm a football fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in 1993 near Hannover and lived there for the first twelve years of my life. I moved then with my family to Frankfurt. My family plays a big role in my life. I have three older brothers, one younger brother and three younger sisters. I always enjoy the time with my family and they have supported me in every period of my life. My favourite sport has always been soccer. I have played since I was five years old and have always put a lot of time and energy into playing and watching. I've finished school in Germany (I have my "Abitur" :)) in Summer 2012 I started my mission in the South of England. After my mission I'll study at a university in Germany.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My parents taught me about Jesus Christ and His teachings. My grandparents were the first people in my family to join the Church. My grandfather was invited to church by a friend when he was about 10 years old. He and his family attended church short after and after a few times they were baptised. I grew up with this faith but nevertheless I have had to gain my own faith. I read the Book of Mormon the first time from the beginning to the end when I was about 12 years old. I prayed to God and I received my answer that the Book of Mormon is true. Because of that I also have a testimony of Joseph Smith, that he was called of God to guide and teach us and that the Doctrine of Jesus Christ was restored through him. Since I had this experience I have often had the opportunity to strengthen my faith and to learn more about God and Jesus Christ. My faith has grown so much since I have been on a mission sharing this message with others.

How I live my faith

My faith is to believe in Jesus Christ, to believe in His teachings and to accept and see Him as my Saviour. He is the great example for service and helping others. I live my faith when I try to follow his example in helping others.
