Hi I'm Austin

I grew up in Oklahoma. I like to play soccer. I love pasta. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing soccer, and I am currently about to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint, otherwise known as the (Mormon Church). I was called to labor in the Italy Milan mission and I am very excited to go. I am an Eagle Scout for the Boy Scout organization, and enjoy doing camping and other outdoor activities. I am going to college and hope to major in biology, but I have put that aside for 2 years in order to serve my mission. I have amazing parents and three brothers who have been my greatest help. I love music, playing piano and singing are two gifts that I have found from which I can serve others. Over-all, I am grateful of the opportunity I have to serve my Redeemer who I love and confide in, both during and after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always loved this church, the principles it has taught me have been a treasure which I have kept close to my heart since I was young, and it has benefited my life immeasurably by trying my best to live my life by what is taught. I testify that God, and Jesus Christ live and play an active part our lives. I know that Joseph Smith, whom we revere and esteem as a prophet of God, received a witness of Jesus Christ and God, and was instructed to translate records of ancient prophets in the Americas. Those records are the Book of Mormon, which we have access to, and I have seen that the standards taught from the Book of Mormon are life-changing, yet simple to follow. I know that if we try our best to live like Christ, and if we allow the atonement of Jesus Christ to work in our lives, our lives will be changed and we will be blessed in many ways.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary of the Church, and hope to be a teacher, and friend to all the people I meet here in Italia.
