Hi I'm Axel

I am from Texas. I am a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old. I played hockey growing up and it is my true passion. I love all sports and will watch anything but hockey is my thing. It's great relating gospel principles to sports and helps me understand more of the doctrine. I am currently on a mission for the church serving in the West Indies (the Carribean Islands). It has been an absolute blessing to serve the Lord and it is not so much that i have been blessed but my family has been blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I truly feel that this is Christ church once again established on the earth. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior because of this, I have felt his love for me through out my life. Knowing that this is Christ church and He is my Savior is the reason I choose to follow Him. Being a member also helps me live up to my highest potential. I went through a little stint in my life where i wasnt following the teachings of the Church and during that time i felt something missing. Lucky for me I recognized what was missing before I made any stupid desicions. Since then I have become such a happier person and all that has to do with the knowledge that I have a Savior that loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by currently serving a full time mission. I have had to sacrifice a lot of worldly things to come out and do this like leaving my family for two years and leaving behind my cell phone and my social life but i would not have asked for more of an opportunity. To share with the world this great message that we have and the blessings it brings to those people's lives that accept it.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Axel
No, we are not requried to serve a mission but what a great opportunity it is for those missionaries that serve and the people that hear our message. Not only do we as individuals but we get to share that Jesus Christ has established his church on earth for us to have the ability to return to His presence. Show more Show less
