Hi I'm Alexander

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently 20 years old serving a Mission in the Texas Houston East Mission and I love being a missionary. I'm a little bit different from most missionaries who leave for their missions right after high school or after a year of college. In Jan 2011, I graduated from Marine Corps boot camp and started to serve the my country. However currently I'm serving the Lord until Oct. 2013, by helping others come to the same knowledge that I know to be true about our church. Everyday I wake up and am able to spread the gospel and help the people here come closer to Christ is a good day to me no matter what happens.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and I really love this church. Everyday I get to see in other people the same love and joy people get from being part of this church strengthens me and my love for it. I've visited other churchs with friends in the past so that I can understand what my friends do and how they praise the Lord. However, there is always something missing from it. Every single time I go to a church that isn't this church I sense that they're missing something that we have and I can never tell what it is but I know it to be true. I know that this is Christ's true church on the Earth today. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith was visited by God, the father, and his son, Jesus Christ, to restore the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that if a man, woman or child were to diligently read through the Book of Mormon with humility and a desire to come closer to God, that they can and will do so. I know all of these things to be true and that no one except Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ telling me in person, can make me believe otherwise.

How I live my faith

Right now, everyday I wake up and from 6:30am-9pm, I go out to teach and help others come closer to the Lord. At this point in my life, I'm know as Elder, and I am a missionary for the Lord, spreading the love, joy and knowledge about the Savior, Jesus Christ to all those who wish to hear the word and want to come closer to the Lord. Everyday has new challenges for me to face and overcome. I'm only a few months into my mission and havn't had the expierences as some missinoaries in my area, but I know that the Lord is helping me through whatever I may face.
