Hi I'm Alexander Gwilliam

I'm a native of California. I'm currently serving a mission in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a recent high school graduate that loves to dream and try new things. I love water polo, swimming and a good book. I have a strong love of the Lord and the work that missionaries do. I have been a member all my life but I feel that through my service to the Lord I have attained my own conversion. I love my Savior and elder brother Jesus Christ. I have a strong testimony that Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us. He knows us better than we know ourselves. I know this because I am supposed to be in Brazil right now serving the Lord there but I know without a doubt that there is a reason I am where I am.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, and through the experiences of my life thus far I have decided it is going to be an integral part of my life for as long as I live. I have come to love the gospel so much in my experience as a missionary. Of all the things in my life that I know to be right and true, I know the gospel has been restored and that it is the one true way to attain happiness in this life and eternal happiness in the world to come.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to follow the example of my savior Jesus Christ. By trying to do the things that he would do. As a missionary I try every day to help people around me learn more and draw closer to their Father in Heaven. I am not perfect but I understand that through Christ and His sacrifice I can try again and do better the next time around. That is perhaps one of the greatest messages I share as a called representative of Jesus Christ, that even though we make mistakes, He still loves us and we can keep doing our best to be like Him. How wonderful that knowledge is!
