Hi I'm Augustus

I was born in Bakersfield, and grew up in Hanford California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently taking American Kenpo, I also enjoy playing video games as well as reading books. On the side I play practice bass and violin though I'm not very good at it I still enjoy it.

Why I am a Mormon

When I got to the church the first thing, I did was lock up my bike and then I went inside where the baptism room was and spoke to the missionaries as I nervously awaited to pick out the baptism clothing. Once I found the right size I went and changed clothing I was still a little nervous so I prayed silently to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, in hopes that they would calm my nerves so that I would be able to focus on being baptized, once the guest started to arrive I took a picture with the missionaries and with Brother Muela at that point the baptismal font was filled up. We opened with a hymn and then Elder Garcia gave the opening prayer, then I listened to Elder Silva give his talk on baptism at that point. Me and Brother Muela left our seats and went to the baptismal font where he proceeded to say the prayer for the baptism after we entered the water and got into place, after that I was completely submerged into the water where I had been baptized. Afterwards I changed my clothes and then I returned to the seat I had been sitting in where, I listened to Elder Altner give a talk on the Holy Ghost and while I listened to Elder Altner I had very pleasant feelings. Then Brother Scholz welcomed me to the Elders Quorum and the Ward, towards the end I sang the ending hymn and then prayed with Elder Smith in the closing prayer for the baptism.

How I live my faith

I currently volunteer with Mormon helping hands, as well as hometeaching, as well one of my callings is doing family history work for the deceased as well I have accepted the calling for Second chancellor for the Sunday School Presidency.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom are guidelines to follow as God instructed us to keep our bodies and minds clean and pure, when God gave the law of health to Joseph Smith in 1833 God promises great physical and spiritual blessings to those who follow the Word of Wisdom as we are to treat our bodies like sacred temples and to keep them pure and clean and not to mark upon our bodies of Tattoos or Symbols as well as take in harmful things like Tobacco, Alcohol, Coffee and tea, even Illegal drugs.
