Hi I'm Austin

I grew up in a small town in Idaho. Lived there all my life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Idaho and I am currently preparing to go on a mission. I am called to serve in the Canada Winnipeg Mission. I have a full time job as a shipping supervisor in a potato warehouse. Ever since I've been able to work, I've always done something that has to do with farming. My first work experience I worked on a farm, and now I started from the bottom in the warehouse and worked my way to shipping supervisor. I've always been told that I am a hard worker and that I help people out when they need it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony that this is the only true church upon this earth today. I know that Christ lived and died for our sins so that we may return to Him someday. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith restored this church never to be taken away from this earth. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a true, modern day living prophet. I know that he leads and guides through the Lord and the Spirit. I know that the Quorum of the Twelve and the branches and Seventy serve with President Monson in the same way in which he so faithfully leads this church. I know that the Prophet receives modern day revelation for our time. I know that we are a chosen people to live in this time. I know that we are to spread the gospel to all corners of the earth. I know that if I faithfully live this gospel and follow his commandments, I can return and live with him again someday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping and serving others. It is what Christ did so faithfully in his earthly ministry. I like to visit the homes of the elderly and listen to the stories about their lives. I like to help people and listen to them when they are going through struggles in their lives.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Our brother Jesus Christ is the Head of this Church. It is by Him and through Him in which the new Prophet is called. Show more Show less
