Hi I'm Austin Metcalf

I'm a Texan and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Utah, but moved to Texas as quick as i could. I grew up in Houston where i was able to make many great friends. Through middle school and high school i played many a variety of sports such as football, swimming, cross country, water-polo and rugby. I also love basketball although i never played on a team. My favorite kind of food is Italian. I think that I am a social person because i love to meet new people. I attended BYU Provo for my freshman year of college. I received my mission call to serve in the Malaga Spain mission. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the most important part of my life and my faith guides my choices.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the Joy and peace that i find in this church. I am not nearly a perfect person but i know through the atonement i can repent of my shortcomings and develop into a better person. I know that i am a son of God and that he loves me more that i can comprehend. I love this church and testify that its teaching are true!

How I live my faith

I show my faith by the way i live. Its more that just going to church on Sunday. Its about trying to live my life in a way that i know is right. I know that when we are in the service of our fellow man we are in the service of our god. That is why i have chosen to serve a mission.The greatest example of how to live our lives comes from that of Christ. He is the only perfect person to live on this earth, and when we try to emulate him in our own life we benefit greatly.
