Hi I'm Andrew Austad

I grew up in Colorado. I am currently serving a mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a former gamer. XBOX live and StarCraft, all versions. Right now I'm a missionary woot ya..... I am loving the mission field, it is awesome to spend all day learning, talking, and teaching about Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

#1 - because it is true. I was raised in the church, but my dad always encouraged me to find out for myself if the gospel is true. I have read the Book of Mormon several times, and followed the counsel given in Moroni 10:4 "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask‍ God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith‍ in Christ, he will manifest‍ the truth‍ of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." I have received a witness of the truth by the power of the Holy Ghost and you can too.

How I live my faith

I worked during high school and after to save enough money to serve a full time mission. I am currently serving in the Des Moines, Iowa mission. One thing I've learned while serving is "Obey with exactness and you will be blessed." I often think about and try to live by a statement I heard in a talk “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.”
