Hi I'm Alex

I love to play volleyball. I love to help others. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am eighteen years old. I graduated high school fourth in my class with honors. I played volleyball for my school for four years as the Liberro. I have three brothers, two older and one younger. I love to read, camp, play sprots, and do pretty much everything a typical teenager does. I have received a call to the Mexico, Mexico City Southeast mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are Mormon so that is just how i grew up. But over the years I have come to know for myself. Just as each of have had to do, I asked God through prayer whether this was the right church or not, and I received an affirmative answer that this is undeniably the true church. There is no doubt in my mind and I am willing to prove it, partly why I am serving a mission in Mexico.

How I live my faith

I have been asked to be a designated leader among my peers, organizing activities, getting meetings underway, and many other things. I try to show my faith by doing all that is asked of me by my church leaders, James 2:17-18. I have come to love service projects and just helping other people.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Alex
There are no restrictions to who may join the church, other than personal worthiness issues. Growing up in Las Vegas, two of my very best friends were Mexican, the older even born in Mexico, and they have been members their whole entire lives. Ziggy Ansah, the African who went 5th overall in the 2013 NFL draft was a convert himself. Not only are there no restrictions, all races, colors, or however else you can characterize yourself, everyone is invited to hear the restored gospel. Show more Show less
