Hi I'm Alex

I'm currently serving a mission in the Philippines Bacolod Mission!

About Me

When it comes to life I don't think I could function with sports. I am an avid sports fan. I love to play and watch sports no matter what it is. Well except for maybe golf and curling, but other than that I love sports. In high school I played baseball, basketball, football, and tennis. I'm from the great state of Michigan so when it comes to college sports I love both Michigan and Michigan State, yes that's a bit odd, but the important thing is that I hate Ohio State! Go blue, go green go anything but red! I am a student at Brigham Young University but am currently serving my 2-year mission in the Philippines Bacolod Mission. I'm so glad to be here in the Philippines serving my Heavenly Father and helping the amazing people of the Philippines to better know their savior Jesus Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon because of the wonderful example set by my parents. If it weren't for my parents I would not have grown up in this, the True Church of Jesus Christ. At times in life I questioned for myself the importance of church, but I never stopped going. I'm thankful for this gospel and all that it does for me. I've been blessed to have grown up with the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation and the knowledge of where I came from and where I can go in the next life. I didn't always realize this blessing in my life, but now more than ever I feel peace and comfort knowing that I am a child of my Heavenly Father and that because of His love for me He sent His son Jesus Christ to Atone for me and my sins and because of this I can return to live with Them and my family for eternity. This gospel has so many answers to so many questions pertaining to this life and the next and to questions I haven't even thought to ask. I know this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. It is called after His name and run by Him through revelation... this is why I am a Mormon today!

How I live my faith

Growing up as a kid I was the only Mormon in my entire school district. Thankfully my friends and fellow classmates accepted that and accepted me for who I was. I've always tried to be the best person I can be. Most of my friends grew up without any religion in their lives and consequently made decisions that aren't in accordance with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I've always tried to be a good example for my friends and for all those I come into contact with . Of course it's not always easy to be different than others, and of course I wasn't perfect, but I've always tried my best. That's what life is about. Trying your best to be the best you can be, and following in the steps of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
