Hi I'm Elder Hamilton

I love Brazil and helping others come unto Christ. I am a fulltime missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

My name is Alexander James Hamilton. I was born in Sacramento, California and am 19 years old. I lived my entire childhood in the Sacramento area and am and always will be a Californian. I am a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I've been called to the Rio de Janeiro Mission and am currently serving in the Colorado Fort Collins Mission until I recieve my visa. I am a high school graduate and attended a full year at Brigham Young University (Provo). I am the eldest child in a family of four: my father, my mother, and 15 year old brother. I love music, and I play guitar, violin, piano, bass, mandolin, ukelele, and harmonica. I also enjoy singing. I love being active and play every sport that I have the opportunity to, especially snowboarding, basketball, and wakesurfing. I love people and seek to build relationships with and help the people in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my life, I have always known that there is a God and I am on this earth to discover and accomplish a calling, specific for me. I have endured and enjoyed countless experiences that have taught me that God loves me, and he loves everyone of his children. One thing that the Mormon church believes that stands out to me is that God speaks to us today through prophets and apostles, the scriptures, and personal revelation. He speaks to us today because He loves us. I have worked throughout my life to gain a relationship with God and find the truth. I have spoken with God, and He has spoken to me. Through Him, I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true and restored church of Jesus Christ. As I live as an active member of the Mormon church and study the Doctrine it provides for me, I gain a stronger testimony of its truthfulness. The restored Gospel helps guide me through life and makes me the happy, determined person I am today.

How I live my faith

I am a fulltime missionary for The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love to teach and share my knowledge and love for the Gospel. I am serving in the Brazil Rio de Janeiro Mission preaching in the language of Portuguese.
