Hi I'm Aaron

I love music more than life. I'm a missionary in Kiev, Ukraine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love music! Especially classical music, such as opera, piano, and certain musical theater (hoping to major in vocal performance after the mission... or go to medical school... we'll see). I also love reading books (fantasy genre for the most part) and baking (mostly desserts). I like playing sports, especially volleyball and tennis. I'm currently a missionary in the Kiev, Ukraine mission, speaking the Russian language. I love to watch children's movies; Some of my favorites are Princess and the Frog, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and Up. My favorite color is blue. I love my multi-cultural heritage. I enjoy being around other intelligent people... :)

Why I am a Mormon

You could say that I was "born into the church;" at eight years of age, I was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In my youth, I continued as an active member of this church through simple obedience--going to youth activities, attending church, etc.--but this was largely in part due to the influence of my parents. In my later teenage years (probably around 16), I decided that I needed to find out for myself whether the things I was taught in my youth were true or whether they weren't. I tested the challenge given in the Book of Mormon (Moroni 10: 3-5), and found it to be true; When I asked if the Book of Mormon was true, I seemed to receive an answer that said "Why are you asking? You already know this is true." :) I have seen the "fruits" of this church and felt the redeeming love of my Savior's atoning sacrifice. I know that this is church is true.

How I live my faith

Right now, I'm serving as a missionary in the Kiev, Ukraine area of the world. Every day, I wake up at 6:30 am, and perform various activities related to missionary service (for example, studying the scriptures, talking to people on the streets, serving members of the church and non-members alike, and doing everything I can to share the truth which I have). I absolutely LOVE reading the scriptures, especially the New Testament and Book of Mormon. I do everything in my power to ensure my keeping the commandments, and I do my best to be kind to others--to truly be a follower of Jesus Christ by following His example.
