Hi I'm Austin

Utah runner and soccer fanatic. Called to the Oregon Portland Mission speaking Spanish! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a cross country runner and have played soccer for several years. I served in student government in high school for 3 years. I play piano and love listening to music. I am called to serve in the Oregon Portland Mission speaking Spanish! After my mission, I am planning on moving on to college and working in the medical field. Eventually I'll be able to raise my family in the Gospel and make Christ an important center of their life!

Why I am a Mormon

Born and raised in the church I have always seen what it means to my parents! I have leaned on my parents testimony for years and have branched off to make my own and build upon it. I continue to follow in the Gospel because of my faith in it. Sometimes I have walked in darkness till I found my foot hold, an answer to my prayers. My testimony has been built piece by piece and continues to add on to it. I am a Mormon because I have seen the happiness it brings into my life. I've seen the happiness and truth it has brought to my home and how well we are able to get along. The feelings I've received from the confirmation of my beliefs in the church are undeniable and hard to recognize as anything else other than true happiness. Life has given me trials and I can testify of the truthfulness of prayer and receiving answers and help from our Heavenly Father. I know we all have a certain purpose here on earth and you can be an answer to someones prayers. We have been sent here to earth to do a purpose and I'm out to do my best and follow the guidance in what I need to do. I love seeing the happiness in my friends eyes as we participate in the church. I am a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints and know by truthfulness and confirmation that this church is true. I encourage all to watch mormon messages and recognize the spirit felt there! I wouldn't be where I am in my life today if I wasn't a member. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am and Eagle Scout and have helped with countless service hours for the community in effort to spread the Gospel. I have had several callings in the church and have been able to help share some of my talents to serve in the church. I am serving a full time mission in Oregon and love spreading the knowledge of Latter Day Saints to others across the globe. Work and school provide extra opportunities to speak to friends about my faith. I also write my favorite church quotes on sticky notes and post them on my wall. Always a great reminder!
