Hi I'm Austin Elkins

I live in Utah. I got called to the Belgium/Netherlands Mission. I'm Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. I have played sports all of my life. I love football! Huge fan of BYU. I have lived in Utah my whole life and it is probably the best city in the world. I got called to serve a mission in the Belgium/Netherlands mission, and I cant wait to serve the Lord! When I return, I plan to attend the University of Utah and attend medical school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church with a great family. I am so grateful that I have parents who have taught me this church and who set the example that I intend to follow. I chose to serve a mission because I know this is the true church. Joseph Smith was a prophet of god, and restored this church. Our Heavenly Father cares about and loves every one of us. I have a strong testimony of the Atonement and Christs sacrifice for us. I know that through it, we can be saved and live eternally in Gods presence. I am excited to teach the people of Europe what this church means to me and to show them true happiness.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I have had many callings. I was the Deacons quorum 1st Counselor, Teachers quorum President, and Priest quorum secretary. I have always loved having a leadership position because it has taught me a lot. I love to help my neighborhood with the service I can offer. I strive to be an example to everyone that I can. I bear my testimony and obey to my fullest capability. I exercise all principles of the faith and I love them!
