Hi I'm Eugene Astashov

I was born in Kiev. I worked 35 years building planes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the United States, government, and history. This country does more for me than any country should. I love politics, economics, and natural living. I run every morning on the beach. I love to watch and play sports. I am a big fan of my local teams in any sport--the Galaxy, the Kings, the Lakes, Dodgers, Angels, and Clippers. The Clippers are my all-time favorites. I also love people, especially Americans, with their unflappable ambition and will to succeed.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Lord. He called me to this faith to follow Him. I will never waver in my knowledge of the truthfulness of this faith. Being Mormon keeps me on the right path.

How I live my faith

I believe in God. I know He leads me. Faith in God gives purpose to my life. I try to listen to what God wants from me. I feel Him directing me every day. I pray that He will give me more work to do. Those few good things I've been able to accomplish--He's done them. His is the glory. I only do what He asks.
