Hi I'm Alejandro

I'm from Pereira, Colombia. I study Bachelor in Music. I'm composer, music teacher and future missionary. I'm Mormon.

About Me

I love the music, it's my whole pasion on this world (of course, God and the Church are first!), I study Bachelor in Music, where I learned to play the viola and the piano. I'm a composer in process. I love to help other people, make them smile! My favourite plans are: going out with friends and see natural landscapes, go to the Church and I like going to Institute Classes so much.

Why I am a Mormon

It's important for every person in this world to find a way to fill his/her heart with love, with all that love that the world couldn't give us. I have been so curious with God, and He has guided me to find Him. I was a Catholic member since I was born. I grew up in this belief, but I'd never found a good feeling or reason to stay in that church, so I began to be more curious about the Gospel and I began to look everywhere, maybe I could find answers to my questions, and to find a way to fill my heart with all the love from God that everybody talked about. One of the first steps that I made was on the Protestant Church... It's funny 'cause here in Colombia there' a lot of "churches" with different names and beliefs, so I joined one of this "churches"... It was very strange, everybody cried, shouted... I just knew that was not from the Holy Spirit... One day, I was passing by the Chapel from my ward, and I didn't know what was that beautiful place... That day there was a Talent Show, so I decided to enter and know what was that church... Since that day, I'm the happiest and blessed person on this entire world, 'cause I could find the truth, and that truth made me free, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-days Saints. I'm Mormon, and blessed. I have a family, I have friends, I have brothers, mothers and fathers. I can read, hear, feel the actual God's plan, and it's wonderful to know that God still talks to us in the present. I know Joseph Smith is the real messenger that God sent to restore the Church and the priesthood on the world, to make those that are tirsty from God's Word, drink from the water of true and love, and let us be part of the eternal Salvation Plan. I know that you can find in our church a new way to live the real Gospel in your heart and life, feeling those things that will conduce you to be blessed and more near to the Heavenly Father's heart. Nobody lose anything with coming to our Church, but I promise, you're going to win a lot.

How I live my faith

I like to help in the music part in the Church, there' a lot of Hymns that I love to play with my friends in the church piano. I try to help the most I can to other people, and I like to go out with the missionaries and help them.
