Hi I'm Alex Hunter

I am from Fresno, CA. I enjoy soccer and snowboarding. I'm 6' 6" and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love playing soccer and snowboarding. Every season I snowboard as much as I can. I just love being outdoors especially hiking and backpacking. I attend college at Brigham Young University-Provo, and am studying to become a chemical engineer. I'm not quite sure why but I really enjoy math and science classes. I really enjoy talking to people and just spending time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the church and so I was raised in the church. So I always believed it was true and that the principles were true, but never really knew. There came a point when I could no longer rely on what my parents said and had to decide for myself. So I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I never had any big experience to tell me it was true, but through my feelings and thoughts, I have realized that the Spirit has worked within me to testify that all that I believed was actually true. I have seen the difference in the lives of those that follow the gospel path and those that have strayed or never had that direction. I know that this gospel blesses the lives of anyone that really puts it to the test and lives it. I know that Christ is my Savior and can help me through my difficult times. I have felt his love. I have felt his peace in my life, and my small experiences give me the strength to keep going when times are hard. I love this gospel and the strength and direction that it has given in my life.

How I live my faith

At this point in my life I am serving as a missionary for the church for a two year period in New York City. So I go around spreading the good news of the gospel and just try to serve people as Christ would. I teach others what Jesus Christ taught and also help others to find answers to their questions. I help to organize activites as missionaries to show that we are just like any other person, and want to share why we are happy.
