Hi I'm Austin

I grew up in Lethbridge, Alberta. I am currently preparing to serve a mission in Kenya Nairobi. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of my family and have two brothers and two sisters. I am currently preparing to serve a mission in Kenya, Nairobi. I report to the MTC in South Africa on July the 25th. I graduated from high school almost a year ago and then worked for eight months after to save enough money for my mission and for school afterwards.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, all of my family and extend family are members of the church. I struggled with many different trials throughout my life since I was young. I believe that it is through these trials that I have gained a testimony of Jesus Christ. I have also know that reading the scripture truly helps to keep Satan at bay. I have notice through the years that as I have read the scripture (The Book of Mormon) I have been blessed in many different ways and have been strengthened. As I have been preparing for my mission I have gone to Missionary prep classes that have also strengthened my testimony. Hearing many of the trials, blessings and experience's that my teacher has had while on his mission has given me a stronger desire to serve. Also as I went I felt the spirit many times. Knowing of that feeling I got from the Holy Ghost I have strive to live better so I can always have him to be my constant companion. I am a Mormon because without this gospel I would be lost. I am a lot happier because I constantly do my best to follow Jesus Christ and repent of my sins when I know have gone down the wrong path.

How I live my faith

I try my best to follow Christ and to live his gospel. I tell other people that I meet that I am a Mormon and that I am going on a mission for my church. I attend church every week and I am preparing to go to the temple. I pray every day and read my scripture when I can. Also I try to surround my self around others that have the same standards as me and I also try to be in places that invite the spirit.
