Hi I'm Alina

I'm a sister. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in San Diego was quite a treat! Who else can say they were able to spend Christmas on the beach?!I love to laugh! You may say that I am loud but when I start laughing we all are laughing. Something that catches my attention is opportunities to learn! Museums, historical sites, and old folks homes are where you can find me. Listening and learning about the past is something that truly fascinates me.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14 missionaries came to my home and found my mom outside mowing the lawn and began talking with her. After this they continued to come back and they met with my family and I an dtaught us about how Heavenly Father loves us and how we have a purpose and be a family forever. We felt special and loved as they shared this message with us and we knew that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith really did see God. I continue to serve the Lord and follow His prophets because I have prayed to know for myself if this really did happen and if this is Christ's church and I felt that it was. It is hard to describe but for me it just made sense in my heart.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a missionary in the Oregon Portland Mission. Before being a missionary I was able to be very active in my community through the church. I have had the wonderful opportunity of doing community service and clean ups for my community. Also in October a few years ago my community was burned down by a wildfire and my whole town was completely gone; but the members of the church were the first to come and help us pick up what was left and save special memories.
