Hi I'm Alexa Bartels

Serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Brazil Porto Alegre North mission.

About Me

I am a serving as a missionary for the church in the Brazil Porto Alegre North Mission. I decided to take a break from my schooling at Brigham Young University- Provo and serve a mission, because the gospel has brought so much love, happiness, and comfort into my life. I want to share these feelings that I have felt with others, and I rejoice in the opportunity to invite other people to come unto Christ and experience the love that our Heavenly Father has for every single one of us.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of this church as been the great joy of my life. It has brought me great happiness and comfort in hard times. I have a testimony that this is Jesus Christ's church upon the Earth today and it was restored through a modern-day prophet, Joseph Smith. I love my Savior, and I know of his sacrifice and love for all of us. I love that through this gospel we can be with our family forever and we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by staying engaged in daily scripture study, prayer, and a continual process of trying to become more like my Savior- Jesus Christ.
