Hi I'm Austin

I grew up on a farm in Nyssa, Oregon. I attended Nyssa High School and I am a Latter-Day Saint.

About Me

I grew up loving sports and the outdoors. I played Football, Basketball, and Track while going to high school. I have always loved hunting and fishing, and just being in the outdoors. I really enjoyed going to school, and plan on going to college after serving a 2 year mission in Lima, Peru.

Why I am a Mormon

I never really wanted to have anything to do with the church until about 2 years ago. I was always just kind of forced into going, when one day my mother told me that i needed to find out for myself if the church was true. I decided to pray and ask God if it was. Upon praying, my answer was.... nothing. I was very confused, and frustrated. I continued to pray and search the scriptures. I realized that I was looking for miracles instead of appreciating the small confirmations and lessons of the spirit. It took about 6 months for me to gain a solid testimony. Since then, I couldn't be happier. The gospel has brought me a happiness beyond that of description. I love this gospel, and i want everyone to have the same blessings that I receive from it. That is why I am going on a mission! I know that this church is true, and that our Lord lives and loves us. I don't know what I'd do without the gospel in my life. It is absolutely everything to me. If you are wanting to know if this church is true, ask the lord sincerely, and I promise that he will let you know that it is. He might not personally appear to you and tell you that this church is true, but I know he will have the spirit touch your heart in confirmation that this gospel is true. It will bring you happiness, peace, and comfort beyond anything you could ever imaging.

How I live my faith

I have just recieved my mission call, to the Lima Peru North mission! I will be leaving shortly. I love going to church every Sunday, especially with my family.
