Hi I'm Austin Davis

I am a programmer, with an interest in learning all things about this universe that God created, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Currently Serving a mission in the Idaho Pocatello Mission. I am serving Spanish Speaking in American Falls. I love to learn more about science and more about God. I am a man of God, I believe as do all Latter-Day Saints: "We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God." I believe this also includes secular knowledge about how the universe works. I marvel at the creations of God and all that He has for us to learn and to understand, yet I know that I cannot yet know nor understand all the things which he has for us to know and understand.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith, and the Book of Mormon; when going through several trials in my life I was unsure of where to turn. I turned to the scriptures and found the History of Joseph Smith, a short history detailing the experiences he had, while reading this account I felt the Holy Ghost or Spirit of God testify to me that the account which I was then reading was fact. This led me to read and pray about The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I read it and then prayed about what I had read, whether it was the truth and was of God or was not. I received the same feeling of the Holy Ghost confirming of its truthfulness. That is my testimony no amount of reasoning, or justifying, just plain and simple. God himself told me through his messenger, The Comforter, or Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving here helping those in need of service and those wanting to learn more about the wonderful message that we share about Jesus Christ and his ministry on both the Ancient American Continents and in Jerusalem. I love to share what I know with those around me through both word and deed, I love to teach, I love to help where I may, and I wish to be a good example for those around me. I firmly believe that all truths are of God and we may discover them if God wills it. It matters not what you call this discovery process, some may call it 'science' others may call it 'philosophy'. I call it Discovery, becoming closer to the God that loves us and created us is a wonderful experience; the more I learn about this universe and all His creations, the closer I feel to Him.
