Hi I'm Alec McDonald

I grew up in Kansas. I love to hunt. I'm serving in the Texas Houston East Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to shoot guns and do stuff outside. During the summer I usually go out to Utah or California where I hike and take pictures of nature. I use to do track and football. I love video games.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because growing up I lived how I wanted to and didn't follow the teachings and standards that church has in place. Over time though I started talking to the local missionaries and feeling the spirit they felt. They helped me realized that the way I was living was wrong, and that to find true happiness and truly be myself was through the church. I then prepared myself to go serve a mission so that I could help others by those experience's and testimony builders that I went through. Even though I was raised in the church I found out for myself that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is scripture and combined with the Bible we learn how we need to live to be able to return to are Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for the church. My main purpose is to help others come unto Christ, I do this by sharing lessons that focus on the church and what I know to be true. When I was back home I helped out with Young Men organization by being the first counselor in the Priest Quorum. I also use to go out with the missionaries and helped them teach people. I try to live every day in a manner that shows love to everyone because that it was the gospel teaches us is the most important thing to do.
