Hi I'm Alexander

I have lived in Washington my entire life. i just graduated high school I love playing sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a large family, I am the seventh of nine children. growing up in a family of nine was a ton of fun. My entire family has always been into sports and I have played football basketball and track all of high school. I love sports and my family and the gospel. I have been called to a mission in Salt Lake City Utah/Orem Utah mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of the church. Throughout my life I have always believed the gospel was true but I never really had a sure knowledge for myself. I eventually decided that I would serve a full time mission for my church. When I made this decision to go on a mission I wasn't sure if it was the right choice to make. I had gone through three surgeries throughout the course of my senior year due to sports injuries. I knew a mission was challenging and I was selfish and thought I had already been through enough trials. But I decided to go anyways. When I went on my mission I discovered after just four weeks in the field that I would have to return home for my fourth surgery. Having to return to my mission was very hard for me. I felt angry because of the trials that had been placed in my life. I had turned inward and thought only about myself. With encouragement from my family I made it back out to my mission. As I started to work and forget about myself I felt the joy of serving others. I was able to look back on the past year of my life and see all the times that the lord had carried me through my trials. I had discovered so many blessing throughout my life and even though I didn't know they were blessings at the time i could now see them looking back. I know that God loves his children on the earth and wants us to be happy. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one and only true church on this earth today. This knowledge and the experiences I've had in my life have lead me the the truth and it's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission for my church. I love sharing the gospel with others and bringing that life into their lives. I love the gospel and plan on sharing it with others for the rest of my life.
