Hi I'm Elder Austin Underwood

I did five years of ballroom dance. I was the business and marketing sterling scholar at my high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have several different hobbies that I am interested in. Some of these include: Ballroom dance, rock climbing, sketching, air-softing, playing the piano, and being out doors. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Florida Fort Lauderdale mission, spanish speaking. Being a missionsary has changed my life for ever. I knew that I was coming out to help others come closer to Jesus Christ but I never could have imagined the many miracles that I would see happen each and every day. I have seen so many people's lives changed because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know know more then ever that my savior lives because of the experiences I have gained on my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I continue to be a member because I know without a doubt that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel upon the earth. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and that he bled from every pore and suffered on the cross so that my sins could be washed away and I could once again become clean. I know that I have a loving heavenly father who watches over me and who has given me commandments, that I may follow his will and return to live with him again. I testify that the gospel is true. I love it and live it with all of my heart, might, mind, and strength. I would be lost without the gospel and am so grateful to have it be a part of my life. I am grateful that I have the knowledge that I can have an eternal family and that I can be with them forever. I am grateful for my understanding of the plan of salvation and that I know that this life isn't the end and that I will live once again with my heavenly father and Jesus Christ. I hope to be able to make a difference by sharing this knowledge with others.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary. Each and every day I have the opportunity to help others come closer to Jesus Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel through faith, repentance, and baptism. Not only have I been able to make sacred covenants or promises with God myself, but I also have the chance to help others to do the same. Everyday I am striving to find at least one thing that I can do to become more Christlike and to leave my will behind to do the will of my father in heaven.
