Hi I'm Aaron

I come from a military family in Sasebo, Japan. I'm currently serving a mission in Antananarivo, Madagascar, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My dad joined the Navy when I was just a toddler, and ever since then, we've lived in a number of places generally in the Southern United States, and Southern Japan. I know a thing or two about different cultures and ways of living. From New Orleans Louisiana, to Fallon Nevada, to a large island in the Pacific. I love to draw, photograph, and write. Movies are a huge hobby of mine. I was called to serve a full-time mission to Antananarivo Madagascar on April 12th, 2016. I can't say that Madagascar is like any other place I've ever seen in my entire life. Here in Antananarivo, I preach the Restored Gospel in a language called Malagasy. It's tough, and I still have much to learn not only about the language itself, but the culture that goes with it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born of goodly parents into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Over all the years of my life I've tried hard to follow their example of living the Gospel. If there's anything I've learned through all of that, it's that true happiness lies within it. Growing up around members of the Church has a special love intertwined with all the relationships you gain with each and every one of them.

How I live my faith

From the very day I realized what a mission was, I knew I was going to be a missionary someday. That doesn't necessarily mean I was always excited for it. I knew it was going to be long. I knew it was going to be hard. But as that day came closer and closer, I knew that I was ready. And by the time I left, I had no doubt that this was what I wanted to do more than anything else in the world.
