Hi I'm Alvin

I grew up in Idaho. I was a shy, quiet, and a bit nerdy. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was often one of the smarter people in the classroom in school. Math was my favorite subject. Nearly my entire social life was in school, but I made some life long friends. Outside of school, I am still a little bit nerdy, but I'm not all books and computers. I love camping and hiking. A lot of my favorite memories are from my days in the Boy Scouts of America, especially the campouts and hikes. I enjoy building and tinkering with stuff. I was often very shy and quiet, but I overcame it to get my Eagle Award in Scouts. At the moment, I am currently serving a two-year Spanish speaking Mission in the United States.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Mormon faith, but that is not why I'm still a Mormon. I love this Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the first prophet of our church in these days Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know that through him, our Heavenly Father restored his Church to the Earth and that it was by his power that the Book of Mormon was translated and delivered to the world. I know that God's spirit is with me.

How I live my faith

I loved attending youth meetings and activities while I was a youth. I made many good friends there. As a youth, I was often placed in positions in youth leadership. I served as a President and a First Counselor several times in different young men groups. Being just out of the youth myself, I haven't had an opportunity for many callings except home teaching. Which I like to do. I like visiting others in my ward. I may not be the best teacher, but I do try and I love listening to their stories and what is going on in there life. I like being with those who share my beliefs. Right now, I am sharing my beliefs with the world as I serve a two-year mission.
