Hi I'm Aaron Russell

My name is Aaron, I love the outdoors, fishing, camping and off roading. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Not much to say about me, I'm an easy going guy, a peacemaker who looks for the good and peace in every situation. Skilled mobile software developer, musician, and as previously stated, peacemaker. Right now I am serving in the Arizona Scottsdale Mission. I seek to help everyone come unto Christ and feel his ultimate sacrifice, otherwise known as the atonement.

Why I am a Mormon

In the past I've didn't see myself as the religious type. In fact in certain times I would have considered myself an atheist. However, there is a time when we must develop a testimony and conversion of our own, born into this church or not. I gained my personal testimony that God, our Heavenly Father, loves us through personal prayer and through the examples of others. I have a testimony of many other things, but typing it here does not serve it justice.

How I live my faith

Obedience is the first law of Heaven. So through this, I live the commandments given to us by our holy prophets, both of old and of latter day. With this obedience brings for blessings. "And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated." (Doctrine and Covenants 130:21) Through this I have felt blessings, Love and peace from the laws that God has given us. They are given us because he loves us and wants the best of us. Through this, we can attain what he has in store for us. I will always find the good in people. Christ has commanded us to love one another and that is what I strive to do. Nobody is perfect, buy that doesn't mean we can't try. I offer my advice and spiritual experiences to those who need it, and do my best to reach out to those in need. I love the Lord. I love God. And will continue to live the way he would have me live. For in that is love. And in it is peace. Will you not deny yourself the same peace, love and blessings?

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Aaron Russell
Christ taught His disciples to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations" (Matthew 28:19) Trying my best to be His disciple, I have decided to follow his example to go forth and bring souls to him. I love and cherish the diverse personalities of others and all are welcome into this wonderful Gospel. I want to help others bring their talents and love to the Savior for it will bless them greatly. After all, is there no greater joy than to see the happiness of others? Show more Show less
