Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Alaska, served my mission in the Philippines, and now attend school at BYU Hawaii. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Biology major at BYU Hawaii in the city of Laie. I come from a family of five. I grew up on a small island in Alaska called Wrangell. I enjoy sports fishing and playing basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is exactly what it claims to be in it's name. It is Christ's church, His kingdom on Earth. I know this because the the Spirit of God has testified of this truth to me many times in my life, and the fruits of the gospel has brought me much happiness and strength.

How I live my faith

I served a mission for the LDS Church in the Philippines. I work in the beautiful Laie Temple every week. I strive to keep my scripture study a daily activity. When I have the opportunity, I share the gospel with those around me. I do this especially with my family, who are not all members of the church.
