Hi I'm Alec Pittsenbarger

I grew up in Las Vegas. I am a sports enthusiast. A subpar baseball player. A missionary in Lyon, France, and Im a mormon!!

About Me

My whole life I have been a huge athlete. Main sport being baseball which i played for a semester at Saint Mary`s University before deciding to leave on my mission to Lyon, France. Je parle français a little. Basically my whole life leading up to my mission revolved around sports. But I have been a member of the church since I was born and the church will always be first in my life. I also really dont like trying to describe myself so i will leave it off here.

Why I am a Mormon

What a grand question. Most people think i am mormon just because my parents made me be. For a long time that was true. Until I got into real life having to make choices and decisions for myself. The gospel helped me to have that path to follow even when i start to fall off of track. For me I never truly read or prayed for the truth until i was about 18 and i got my answer right away. I had grown up in the true church and it was the true one all along. After i found that i dropped my baseball scholarship and everything i had to serve a mission. Some might ask me if it was worth it to give that up such a great scholarship and future. I can tell you 100 percent it was the most worth it thing i have ever done and i would not change it one bit. This church is true. I have found it myself through reading the Book of Mormon and praying. I invite you to do the same. You wont be disappointed.

How I live my faith

Right now i am currently a full time missionary in the Lyon, France mission. Leading up to my mission I always participated in the different programs of the church such as scouts and service and multiple others. Before my mission i had the chance to teach 12 year olds Sunday school. Really prepared me for where i am now. A big part of what i like to do is being a role model. Although i am not perfect and any way shape or form i love helping youth get onto the right path. I plan to continue doing these things and many others for the rest of my life.
