Hi I'm Alex

I'm Australian and am preparing to serve a mission for the church and I'm proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and am preparing to serve a mission for the Church. I have been working in a supermarket for a few years now and am also in my final year of High School. I love playing and watching Australian Rules Football or playing a bit of basketball. My favourite subjects are Italian and science and I love going out with my family to the beach or the movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon as I was born into the Church, however I haven't always known it is true. My dad was taught by the missionaries when he was in his early 20's and my mum's family were taught before she was born and this has always been impressed on my mind. I realised that I can't always rely on what my parents knew but that I had to find out if the Church was true or not. I studied The Book of Mormon, Bible, prayed to my Heavenly Father and tried my hardest to serve other people in need. And in time I began to increase my faith and now I KNOW that God loves us, and that he loves us so much that he sent his son Jesus Christ to atone for us where if we repent we can gain forgiveness. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and The Book of Mormon is the true word of God. I am a Mormon because I know these things are true and want the opportunity to help others come to know these things are true also.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest every day to be an example to my friends as I live what I believe. I try to follow my Saviour's example and learn charity as I find opportunities to serve in any way possible. In Church I am a Ward Missionary which means I am able to go out with the full-time Missionaries and teach others about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I also help organise activities for the young single adults (those aged 18-30) to help them strengthen their faith and love for Heavenly Father and also develop lasting friendships. Soon I will be leaving to serve a mission for the Church where I will have the wonderful priviledge of sharing the true gospel with those who are yet to find it.
