Hi I'm Alec Silva

I grew up in California and moved to Utah and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Alec Silva, I have done a lot of sports in my life but the sports I like the most are Rugby, Wrestling, and Baseball! I will be going to college in a couple of years right now I'm in Alberta Canada on a mission. I will taking Architecture at the University of Utah. I have moved from California when I was 12 and we moved to Utah! It was horrible I didn't want to move and I will be honest I was going to Mormon ville! I have always been a Mormon but I didn't want to make new friends and most of my friends in California weren't Mormon. But I was glad that we moved, I have made some really good friends and they truly did help me with finding God and what I real stand for because before I didn't really know what I stood for. I have a bigger family there's 6 in total counting me! I have a younger brother named Spencer, an older sister named Kelsi, and a younger sister named Emma. My mom and dad are Elizabeth and Raymond.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that God lives that his Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, came down and died for my sins and for the whole world's sins too! I know that Jesus Christ true does live and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is his true church and he leads it today! I know and believe with all my heart that he true does loves us and he wants us to follow him and that we can do that by being apart of his true church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and this I know, and no matter what anyone says, I will believe, and no one can take away my testimony that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world, that he died for us and that he truly does live and he leads The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints today!

How I live my faith

Well right now I'm fully time missionary meaning I go around helping people in anyway I can from manual labor to teaching the Gospel. But I live my faith by helping people because Jesus Christ helped anyone and everyone so I need to do the same! I also live as Jesus Christ lived his life by example and that's hard because I know I'm not perfect nor will I be perfect on this earth but I can try and be a better person everyday!
