Hi I'm Alex

I come from New Hampshire, where I'm not around a whole lot of other Mormons.

About Me

I'm a college student from New Hampshire who has been attending a college out in Utah. Despite attending college there, I've spent the rest of my life in New Hampshire, where I'm not around other Mormons all the time. I have good friends from a variety of religious backgrounds, including everything from Wicca to Atheism to Catholic. I can be a bit of a nerd at times. I love to play overly complicated board games and card games, and attended a board game club in high school. I am about to go on a Mormon Mission for two years in Colorado, where I will do what I can to give the people of Colorado the opportunity to hear our message and learn about who we are.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen how the church can help turn lives around. I have seen many people that would otherwise be wrestling with so many troubles and problems find peace in the church. I have seen the influence of the church be a wonderful thing in so many people, and it is very real to me. As well, I firmly believe in Christ and his teachings. I have had personal experiences that confirm this belief to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what I can to be the sort of person who brings a positive cheer to those around me. I love to smile and bring cheer to those around me to help brighten up everyone's day. I have served within the church in youth leadership positions, where I would represent the youth that attend the one church building at meetings for youth activities on a more regional level.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Alex
We believe that our gospel can help enrich other's lives. We include our missionary program in order to help give other people the opportunity to hear what we have to offer. We do not intend to force or coerce in any way membership of the church, nor do we serve missions for some sort of personal gain. It is a volunteer act in order to help give regular people the opportunity to hear our message and potentially join the church if they choose, because we believe it would be for their benefit.
