Hi I'm Alek

I am a soon to be missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

About Me

I'm just home from my first year of college and am now preparing to serve a mission for the church! I excited to be able to serve the Lord and his children by sharing the gospel to everyone I meet! I thank my Heavenly Father for wonderful righteous parents who have taught me to do what is right.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger(10 or 12) my parents challenged me to pray and ask my Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true. I remember kneeing and truly asked God if the book was from and if it was true. I felt peace and a safe warmth surround me and I knew that the Book of Mormon was the word of God and that every word of it was true! I have sense prayed for a reformation of that testimony and have again received that same sweet peace and know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth and has been restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith Jr. I know that we have a living prophet today who leads and guides the church through the direction of the Savior. I know it's true! I love it and I live it! I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday school teacher for the younger primary children. It's a challenge but they keep me on my toes and let me see a new degree of our Heavenly Father's love for each one of his children.

What is the First Vision?

This truly did happen Joseph saw God the father and his son Jesus Christ. Joseph was instructed to translate the Book of Mormon and restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the Earth. From this experience we now have the true church on the earth and Heavenly Father has promised that it will never be taken away! Show more Show less
