Hi I'm Alex Larsen

I'm the world's biggest BYU fan, I speak Hmong, I love Jesus Christ, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First off, I love my family. I don't know what I would do without them!! They have been such a big support in my life, and I am so lucky to have them. I'm the oldest of 6 kids and I'm currently serving my mission in the Milwaukee Wisconsin Hmong speaking mission. I consider myself extremely blessed that I was called to Wisconsin to serve these wonderful people. I work my hardest to understand and speak Hmong, but it has been a slow process so far. I have been accepted to the best school in the world, BYU. I've been a big BYU fan all my life, and it truly is my dream school. For so much in my life, I give credit to the gospel. I can't count the number of times that I have been comforted by something said in the scriptures, in church, or by God through the gift of the Holy Ghost. I always strive to look for examples for me in the scriptures, and I cherish the times that I really get to explore and dive into what I'm reading that day. I'm a big BYU fan, I love my family, I (try to) speak Hmong, and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family, and through thick and thin, trial and blessing, the gospel has strengthened us. I have had many trials of my faith, and many times when I could have turned my back on the gospel, but each time I have turned to the Lord and my faith has only grown stronger through it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by preaching it! I'm on my 2 year mission right now, and I'm so excited to share the joy that the gospel gives to me to somebody that has never experienced it before! Sometimes, the language can be a barrier, but sometimes I almost feel like the spirit can communicate through me better when I bear my testimony in Hmong. Kuv paub tias kuv leej txiv saum ntuj hlub kuv. Kuv paub tias nws hlub peb sawv daws. Nws muab nws leej tub rau peb, thiab kuv paub tias yog peb coj nws, ces peb yuav nyob nrog Vajtsws dua. Kuv paub tias lub koom txoos no muaj tsheeb, thiab kuv xav muab kev paub no rau peb sawv daws. Los ntawm Yexus Khetos lub npe, amees. I know that my heavenly father loves me. I know that he loves everyone. He gave his son to us, and I know that if we follow him, then we will live with God again. I know that this church is true, and I want to share this knowledge with everyone. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
