In 1997 he served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Jamaica Kingston Mission, where he learned to speak patois and fell in love with a country and a people.

When he returned home, to Arizona, Aaron successfully courted the girl of his dreams and they were married in March of 2001.
