Hi I'm Austin

I love and play sports and I am a mormon

About Me

I have grown up playing sports all of my life I love to play all kinds of sports. I have played Basketball, Baseball, Football and have ran Track in high school. My favorite sport is football I love it my team has won the state championship the last 2 years in a row. I also love and enjoy the mountains, I love hunting, fishing, pretty much anything that has to do with the mountains i'm there. I was born into an amazing family who has raised me in the LDS church as they were and we love spending time together. At this point in time I am getting ready to graduate from high school. I am not going to college in the fall. I have decided to serve an LDS mission and have been called to the Nairobi Mission and report to the MTC July 25, 2013.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church so going to church and doing all of the things that come with it have always just been a habit. At a young age I did not understand a lot of the doctoran, all I new was that Jesus loved me. As I grew up I started to not like going to church it was boring and I was at that point where I had a lot of questions about the church. So I have older siblings that I love and trust who have all been great and wonderful examples to me. So I asked my brothers what I should do and they told me to pray and ask for a sign of wether this church was true. Being young and looking up to them so much I decided to pray about it and I soon came to the realization through the holy ghost that the LDS church was the true church and as I gone through my life to this point I have had many more experiences that have strengthened my testimony. I have seen a lot of miracles through the power of the priesthood and have had many experiences where the spirit has been so strong that I can not deny what it is that I have felt and continue to feel. I know that this church is true, If i did not know this then I would not be leaving my friends and family to serve our lord and savior for 2 years. I know that we can be saved through the atoning power of Jesus Christ and I know that if you will come to him and rely on him that he will make it known to you through the whisperings of the holy ghost. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our lord and savior, amen.

How I live my faith

We as a ward are always coming up with ways we can serve. We have taken on some pretty huge acts of service. We built an addition onto their house as a ward. Luckily we have a contractor that lives in our ward so he was able to help a lot as for me this gave me many opportunities and lots of hours to help and give my time by shingling their new roof. I do home teaching with my father we teach 3 families in our ward. Also I am the second assistant to the bishop of our ward and this gives me many other opportunities to serve. I also participate in athletics that our whole community comes to watch and support.
