Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in North Carolina. I am going to be serving a mission in the Mexico City Northwest Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am preparing to serve in the Mexico City Northwest mission. I am so excited for the opportunity to go on a mission. I am the second oldest of four, and I'm the second child to go on a mission. I have been working in Salt Lake while taking online courses for the past few months, and I will attend BYU Idaho after my mission. I was born and raised in the South, and I love the people and sights on the East coast. I love to laugh, and I love meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my life has been filled with a joy and light that only comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ. Every time I read The Book of Mormon I can feel the strength in the testimonies of the prophets. And we continue to have prophets that will lead and guide us today. The gospel is the light that will guide us home to our loving Heavenly Father. I am going on a mission because I want to share the joy I have received from the gospel with others. I know that I never walk alone. The pain I experience from trials can be shared with Jesus Christ because He knows exactly what I am feeling. Joseph Smith restored the gospel back to the Earth through the power of God. Christ lives, and He loves us. The gospel is true.

How I live my faith

The gospel has affected every aspect of who I am today. I am very much an imperfect person, but I have so much joy in the knowledge that I can continue to grow and progress throughout my life. I am blessed to live in a place where many people are religious, so that gives me the opportunity to share my beliefs in many diverse settings. Currently I have the opportunity to be a ward missionary, so I help assist the missionaries in my ward.
