Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Arizona, and I'm preparing to serve a full-time mission in the Ukraine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest child out of five kids. I recently graduated from high school, and I am leaving to serve a mission in Kyiv, Ukraine in two months, which I can't wait for! My mom is from Belgium and is a convert, so I have been able to see many different lifestyles. I also lived in Germany for three years. I understand how hard it is to be the only member of your faith within a large community. It can be hard, but with the Lord on your side everything will be alright!

Why I am a Mormon

At first, I was a Mormon because i was born into it. Both of my parents are members of the church, my dad since he was born and my mom since she was 18. But then, I gained a testimony and love for the gospel, and wanted to share it with other people! I never read the Book of Mormon completely until I was 18. My bishop challenged me to read it in three days. I never would have that I would have been able to do it! But with lots of prayers, I finished it! I followed Moroni's council at the end of the book, and got down on my knees and prayed to Heavenly Father to know of its truthfulness. I had the best feeling in my heart, and I know that it is true. Now, I want to be able to share this gospel with others so they can have a similar experience like mine!

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example to my friends. I many friends that are planning to serve missions for the church, but a few of them are not sure if they shoud/want to go. Through being a good friend and setting an example by serving a mission, I hope to keep being able to encourage them to serve.I
