Hi I'm Alex Abeyta

I am a Bagpiper, Baseball player, Mixed Martial Artist And Im a Mormon

About Me

I have played the Bagpipes for about 6 Years. I Play for funerals on a regular basis and took part in the Nauvoo Padgeant. I have been raised playing Baseball all my life. I play 3rd base & 2nd base. The New York Yankees have always been my team going back to my Father always being a Yankees Fan. I also love MMA/UFC. I have trained in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu for the past twp years about. And have had the privilage to train with BJ Penn (MMA/UFC Legend). I really enjoy Movies. I like a good Comedy or Stallone film. My favorite Movies are Rocky IV, Happy Gilmore, Braveheart and Warrior. I also love Cookies and Milk.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised a member of the Church. But I was not Converted until I started to read the Book of Mormon for Myself . When I was about 15 I read this book and prayed to know if the things inside were true, I felt a feeling I have never felt before. And I knew I could never deny it.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in the Jacksonville, Florida Mission. I go around and invite others to come unto Christ by recieving the Gospel in Their Lives. I am currently Serving in the Gainesville Young Single Adult (YSA) Branch. They are all mostly students of the University of Florida (UF). Ages (18- 30) But in sometime I will be called to serve somewhere else in the Jacksonville Florida Mission boundries.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

The title "Mormons" are a nick name because of The Book of Mormon. Mormon is the Person who compiled each of the books that make up the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
