Hi I'm Alonzo Williams

I'm Alonzo. I'm from Nevada. I love sports! I'm serving a full-time mission in Long Beach, CA. I'm Mormon!

About Me

I have grown up in the church all my life and it has been a tremendous blessing. I am the oldest out of five children and love every second of life. My hobbies are wakeboarding, snowboarding, football, and have received a scholarship to play baseball at Adams State University. Without the church in my life I wouldn't be the person I am today. I'm serving my mission in the Great California, Long Beach Mission speaking Spanish and couldn't be happier in any other place in the whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

There is no other place I would be. I'm Mormon because it gives me the true knowledge that I need to eventually return with my Father in Heaven again. This gospel changes families, I have seen it, and I know that as long as I am a missionary, a representative of Jesus Christ, and even after that, this gospel will continue to change the lives of others so that they can know the blessings that are in store for us.

How I live my faith

Faith is huge in the LDS religion. I show my faith by trying to set the best example I can be so that other people can look at me and say,"Wow! He's a little bit different." except in a good way ha! I love the scripture, "faith without works is dead" and I will always work my hardest to make my Heavenly Father proud of me. Faith can move mountains!
