Hi I'm Alan Alas

I love cars and learning what else is in store for me in life and I'm a missionary in the Texas San Antonio mission, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary in the Texas San Antonio Mission. I Like to Fix Cars and I like to dance.

Why I am a Mormon

The Reason i am a member and missionary of the church is because of the great love that my heavenly father has for me and because of my family who helped me learn and understand how to live a great life through our savior jesus christ's teachings. It was a large struggle for me to realize that the church was true because i didn't really understand what my answer would be, it was after many days of praying and fasting, reflecting on what I've done in my life and how i was able to make it so far. The Book of Mormon was a key item in my understanding of what my answer was because of the experiences of the prophets and the answers they recieved for their own conversion were a great help for me to be able to realize that i had recieved one as well. During the time i was thinking about serving a mission because i was the age when i could leave to be a missionary, I was still searching to know what was the truth, if the church was true... I had many things that i had to finish paying and also i needed the money to be able to go on a mission and i remember that i prayed one day and said if you want me to go on a mission, if these things are True about the Church then help me get the things i need to go and answer that was loud and clear because everything that i needed began to fall into place for me, help came from everywhere, from family, friends and members of the church. What i have come to see is that Sometimes we fail to realize the small things that our father in heaven does for us just because we are focusing on having such a big life changing event or answer. I know that what missionaries all around the world and members of the church share is true because i have prayed to know and have sincerely searched to know if these things do come from god. I know that god still calls prophets today and that We can all have the chance to be with our father in heaven and our savior Jesus Christ again with our families if we do what the lord has asked us to do.

How I live my faith

I live my life having fun, by ☼ dancing, ♫ listening to music♪ , going to church and being with my friends and family, and always remembering who i am. I love to serve people and help people fix their cars when i get the chance. I love to see people always be happy and not look at all the negative things in life. Its always great to make new friends and get to know people who want to join in this great cause and keep moving forward in life through all the daily struggles that we each go through. Taking Everyday with a ☻ SMILE ☺

What is faith?

Alan Alas
Faith is believing in something before seeing it. We sometimes must walk in the darkness of nothingness to see the light on the other side. It is wanting to believe something is true and trying it to see for yourself it its the truth. Show more Show less
