Hi I'm Alex

Grew up on a farm near Lindley, OFS. I am an IT & ERP consultant with my own business. I have been a Mormon since 1978.

About Me

I have a background in Electronics, IT and Business. I am an IT and ERP consultant and love computers and technology. I love cycling, hiking, the open country and game parks. I love training and sharing skills with people. I donate my time to homes for children with disabilities. I have a brother in one. I am a husband, married 42 years. I am a father and grandfather.

Why I am a Mormon

I guess I was looking for answers to many unanswered questions about life. Now, before this life and after this life. I always believed in God as supreme and knew there had to be answers to my questions. I searched for many years in quite a few churches but never found answers that made sense. Then I met the missionaries. They had answers but I needed to know for myself. After 9 months of investigating I received my answer one Saturday morning in a personal revelation in answer to a plea for clarity. It confirmation that what I was reading was true. In seconds I changed and was released from the grasp of doubt. The soft voice I heard provided a direct answer and I then knew without a shadow of a doubt that Joseph Smith did indeed live and translate the Book of Mormon. My first thought was how simple it all was. I was amazed at the power of doubt over me. I could not see till it left me by some power that released me from it. I have had many spiritual experiences since then, including a brief insight into the Spirit World where my son of 12 was taken a few days earlier. The pain, doubts, anger and questions of loosing a loved one were treated with the love that only a Heavenly Father can provide. This only increased my wonder at the life after this one.

How I live my faith

I serve in any calling assigned to me. I have grown from a shy boy into a man willing to do anything to serve my Heavenly Father. I currently serve in Single Adults over 30 age group and Public Relations. I organize annual convention and other activities and work with leaders in our region.
