Hi I'm Alec

I am 19 years old. Basketball and football are my favorite sports. I am a Duke Basketball Fan!!!! and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now, I am serving a mission serving in the Salta, Aregentina Mission. I have mostly grown up in North Carolina. I am the oldest out of four boys in a family of six. I have graduated high school and completed one year of college at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I absolutely love sports. I have played basketball, and was pretty good at swimming. I am a Duke Basketball Fan! Go Blue Devils!!! Carolina Panthers are my home town NFL team so I am faithful to them. Some things I really like to do is Roller Skating or Shuffle Skating, also Frisbee Golf. I like pretty much ever kind of music, so I couldnt pick out a favorite. I really enjoy spending time with family, including extended family. Whenever we are together for anything it is always so much fun, full of craziness and laughter. My family is soo big and I absolutely love them all to death.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon. My parents are members and I was born into the church. Most of my family is involved with the church. I have grown up with it being around me all of the time. I have had many experiences where I have realized for myself that this is where I want to be. I know that this church is true. I have seen the effect it has had on peoples lives and what it can do. I have felt it for myself. That is why I am going to serve a mission and serve the Lord. I know what the Lord can do for me. I know that he can help me to do what is right and return to live with him. I love this church. I love the Lord and I know that he loves me.

How I live my faith

As of now I am serving a mission. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a way of life. Say you have played a sport your whole life. When you play,do you think its fun or work? It is fun right. Thats because it is just something you do. Your used to it. Thats the way the Gospel is. Its not something hard, its not work, its just something you do. The Gospel really is a blessing. Knowing that I am getting closer to Christ. It helps me to be an example to those around me. Including my younger brothers. I hope that they can look at me and say, "I love my brother, I want to do as he did and go on a mission."
