Hi I'm Alex

I was born in Mesa, Arizona. I'm serving a mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old, and I'm a missionary in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Before I came on my mission, I went to school for one year at Arizona State University. I studied chemistry, and eventually want to go into the medical field. I love to play any kind of sport. My favorite sport would probably be golf, though.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon for my entire life. I have found great joy in living the Gospel throughout my life. As I've grown up striving to learn and live the principles that I've been taught and that I've learned from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I've seen great blessings in my life. As I've pondered and prayed about the Book of Mormon, the Lord has answered my prayers. I know that this book is true, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet, called of God. God's church has been restored again to the earth, and we can be part of His kingdom, as we accept the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and live the principles that are taught. Having the knowledge that I have, there's nothing that I'd rather do than continue as a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

At the moment, I live my faith by helping others every day to receive the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ as a full-time missionary. However, not only do I try to teach others about it, but I strive to live it for myself. I apply principles such as faith, repentance, prayer every day as I strive to become more and more like my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am not perfect, but I work every day to try to improve myself so that I can be a better person. Every week, me and my missionary companion participate in a service project, where we help people in the community with things that they need. Right now, we are helping a family re-model their home. There are so many ways to serve, and that truly is the greatest way to show your faith.
