Hi I'm Del Alvarado

I was born in New York. Raised in New Jersey. Joined the Military (Air Force) when I was 18. Converted January 2012. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised Roman Catholic. My wife was raised Mormon. I am a convert. I joined the church January of 2012. I enjoy sports (baseball, hockey, basketball etc.). Not only playing these sports but also watching them.

Why I am a Mormon

For as long as I can remember I have always been afraid of death. More specifically, what happens when I die. I had a fear of pure darkness/nothingness. The Plan of Salvation has utterly removed this fear. I am so happy and grateful to know that my life will not end when I die, but will continue on forever with my Family. Knowing that The Lord has this Plan for me and my family and only asks us to follow the commandments, gives me a peace that I want to have forever. This is one of the many reasons I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I do my best to magnify my calling and also magnify every aspect of myself pertaining to being a Mormon. Currently my calling is with the Cub Scouts. Not having any prior experience in Scouting/Camping I am doing my best to learn and lead by example. Being a role model for the kids and earning their respect has given me pride and I know that this is a true calling from the Lord.
