Hi I'm Allene

I'm a sister and a daughter. I am called to be a missionary in the Canada Halifax mission. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at BYU-Hawaii, a wonderful campus full of amazing diversity. I am called to serve as a missionary in the Canada Halifax mission for 18 months. I am beyond excited to serve the Lord and His people in such a beautiful place in the world. I am so happy to be a member of this church, and I look forward to building my testimony and helping other with theirs on this life-changing journey.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the covenant (a member my whole life), but that doesn't mean I wasn't converted. Throughout high school, tests of my faith strengthened me to be the person I am today. Conversion is a gradual process, and I am, by no means, finished. I am a Mormon because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true, and that it was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I'm a Mormon because I know of the Savior's atoning sacrifice and the peace it gives me. I'm a Mormon because I know that the Chruch is being led by prophets and apostles today, and I know that the guidance they give is real and applicable to me. But I'm a Mormon because the church and the gospel gives me peace, comfort, and direction in my otherwise crazy life. I'm a Mormon because I love being Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by putting my trust in the Lord when it is most hard to do so. Going on a mission is a head and scary thing to do, I've figured out. But having faith in my Savior has strengthened myself in this period of my life. I live my faith by attending my church meetings weekly while at school, serving others, and sharing my testimony with those I feel could benefit from it. But right now, I am living my faith by leaving my family and serving a mission, because I know that someone in Canada is waiting for me specifically to come and teach them.
