Hi I'm Austin Allred

I'm a runner. I'm a stand up comedian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love running, being active, playing games, drawing, listening to music, making new friends and serving others. I like to envolve everyone around in activites and occasions. I want to be either a counselor, a voice actor(I love impersonating voices) a motivational speaker or a seminary/institute teacher or maybe ALL. I am enrolled at Utah State University. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Uganda, Kampala Mission. Uganda is known as "The Pearl Of Africa". I love it and love the people and am so happy to be serving them. I have made many great friends from other parts of the world especially from different countries in Africa and I still love to make new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I wanted to know where I stand with my Heavenly Father, what will happen to me after death and how I can find happiness. The Plan of Salvation gave me all the answers I wanted. The Book of Mormon has filled an empty crater inside me with its powerful witness of the Savior. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have found eternal peace, joy and love. My family now and the families I will have can be together forever and I couldn't be happier!

How I live my faith

Everyday I look for someone I can serve, comfort or to mourn with. The Savior Jesus Christ was the greatest example of love, compassion and mercy. I want to be like the Savior in all that I do. I love my fellow brothers and sisters. I want to help them know that they are watched over and have a Father in Heaven who loves them more then they can imagine. I know that a small sacrafice of a few minutes of our busy time to help someone in need or to comfort those in need of comfort The Lord will not hold back from blessing us. I serve others with love because I know the Jesus Christ would do the same.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?
