Hi I'm Elder Alec Solomon

I am from a small town in Arizona. I love family and football. Currently serving in the Portugal Lisbon Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Snowflake, Arizona. Small town boy. Love my family members, 1 older sister and 2 younger brothers. Our family is centered around the gospel and football, and proud of it! I have been LDS my entire life and could not be happier. Currently serving in the Portugal Lisbon mission. I reported to the Provo MTC on the 22nd of July and am beyond excited to bring this Gospel to those that our Father in Heaven has prepared. I have been exceedingly blessed in my life and this is my chance to give back what I can by serving my Lord and the people in Portugal. Football is life at the Solomon home and it breaks my heart to miss a brothers season but this is a more important work. Family is everything to me, always has been, always will be. Thankful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power it has to enable me to live with my family eternally, can not think of a better way to spend my time than bringing this wonderful opportunity into the lives of others!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents have always been members of the church and our family has been active throughout my whole life. The small town I live in consists of mostly members and I have grown to love the atmosphere of the Church. As I grew up and learned the teachings and doctrines of the Church I began to pray intently about them and my testimony has grown considerably over the past couple of years. Most of my family members are members of the church and they are who I look up to. I am excited to be serving a mission and increasing my testimony as I serve others and bring them unto Jesus Christ through the restored Gospel. i have learned of a surety that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore this true Gospel of happiness to the earth today. I know that this Gospel can help any kind of people with any kind of problem any where they are. I know that the Atonement of our sacred Redeemer is sufficient for us all, He dies for us. I know that he lives again, today.

How I live my faith

I am currently working hard on my mission in Portugal. I strive to be obedient and focus on others, this has helped me more than anything else to grow closer to our Savior and Father in Heaven. I love family, whether it be my own or another, I desire to see families bring joy into the lives of each other. I have seen this in my own life and I want others to feel this same love and joy. It truly is the best environment for one to grow up in the Gospel and learn about true happiness and joy. I love and cherish the relationships I have made with those in my family and I am excited to help others accomplish that in their own lives. This may be the Missionary in me talking, but the most important way to live the gospel in my opinion is to be obedient. Be obedient to the rules and laws that the Lord has set forth, it will bring the joy that we seek in this life. I am thankful for the strong examples my parents have been, they raised me well and they are the reason that I am here serving. I have loved gaining a testimony for myself of the things that this church teaches. The true church of Jesus Christ, our Savior, has been restored to the earth today. It is the true Gospel of happiness, I know that. I have seen it. We just have to find it for ourselves!
