Hi I'm Alan Burchell

I grew up in England. I am married with two children. I work for a Bank. I love to make people laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to watch movies, but when the sun is out I am down at the beach or going for walks in the new forest.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Bible and love the stories of Jesus. His life is an example to us all. When I read the Book of Mormon I knew it was also inspired of God. The people who lived in the ancient Americas also saw Christ after his resurrection and their testimonies confirm those in the Bible.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church, but as a teenager I had to find my own way. I prayed to know if God was really there for me. I had several experiences as a young person were I felt peace in my heart and I came to know God was real and that he loved me. I went on to serve a mission for my church in France and now help look after the missionaries in my local area. Knowing I have a loving Heavenly Father and a Saviour in Jesus Christ who died for me that I might live makes me want to share this message with others. My faith brings me great peace in my life and direction.
