Hi I'm Aleksi

I live in Finland. Waiting to serve my mission. I´m a Mormon.

About Me

I´ve graduated from college. I did my military service in the Finnish Navy Special Forces as an E.O.D (explosive ordinance disposal) diver. My family consists of my father and mother who are divorced, though my mother is newly married. I also have two little brothers. We also have a cat. I´m very much into cars and all things concerning them (racing, design, driving, etc.). I´ve also been competing in swimming on a national level for about 9 years. My other hobbies include guitar playing and drawing.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents have seen it as their duty to bring me to church ever since I was born. This way I have learned to love this church and all things regarding it. I have never regretted being a member, because nothing bad has ever come from the church in my life. Though there have been a few occasions were I have been teased for being "different", I don´t see them as major setbacks or that I would need to question my faith. And furthermore and most importantly these setbacks have only made me stronger in the faith and thus strengthening my testimony. Discussing church matters with my friends who are non-members has also become easier and easier and I´m happy to see that most of them are very respectful and open-minded. I will be serving as a full time missionary soon and hope to further strengthen my testimony and share it and the gospel to those who are looking for it. I believe that the church is true, that Jesus Christ is the savior, that the gospel has been restored and that this is truly the Lords work. Amen.

How I live my faith

I´ve been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for all my life. my mother is a convert and her mother also. My family are the only ones from my kindred who are members of the church. I go to church every sunday but also on mondays when we have the young adults activity. My calling in our congregation is the young boys (ages 8-11) activity instructor. I am going to serve my full time mission soon.
