Hi I'm Austin Butler

I enjoy the outdoors and all outdoor activities. I am from Iowa. I am serving a mission in Las Vegas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, my name is Austin. I am currently serving a mission in the Nevada Las Vegas mission. I am an Eagle Scout, and an avid outdoorsman. I love to go camping, hiking, canoeing, mountain climbing, and just about anything that has to do with the outdoors. I am the oldest sibling of three, and I have a wonderful family, and I hope to start my own family in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was born in the Church, but it wasn't really important to me until I was about 15. That was when I took learning about religion very seriously and I looked at different religions as well as my own religion. I looked at the gospel I had learned, and the different teachings of other faiths as well, and I prayed about which church was the truth. After this prayer, I was certain that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I have been blessed with happiness because of my choice, and I know for sure that I belong here in this Church. I owe the family I have to this faith. I know that without this Church, I wouldn't be down a good path today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by many means. I have had many opportunities to serve the people around me. I firmly believe that the best way to live ones faith is to serve people and love them. I try my hardest to be a good example to all around me, especially my little siblings. I try to show people around me the happiness the gospel of Jesus Christ has given me, and I invite them to learn more.
