Hi I'm Aletse Beck

I grew up in Rock Springs, Wyoming. I love to play soccer, read, draw, and spend time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

On September 2, 2015 I will leave to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be serving in Mexico City, Mexico speaking the SPANISH language. I will be gone for 18 months. For a year and a half, I'll put aside ALL personal affairs. I'll leave my FAMILY, I'll leave my FRIENDS, I'll put my EDUCATION on hold, I'll leave my PHONE, I'll leave my JOB, I'll leave my MUSIC, and my COMFY CLOTHES, and even my readily accessible PANTRY! So I can dedicate 18 months of my life to service and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'll wake up every morning at 6:30 a.m. I'll walk or bike 10+ miles DAILY. I will get 1 HOUR a week to contact my family/friends..... via email. I will get to SKYPE or CALL my family TWICE a year (Christmas and Mother's Day) for 40-60 minutes. I will STRUGGLE. I will STRESS. I will encounter many TRIALS. People will REJECT my message. My soul will ACHE. BUT... I've never wanted something so much in my life. You may ask: WHY?! Does your church REQUIRE it? NO. Do they PAY you? NO. Did your parents MAKE you? NO. Then WHY in the world would you do it? It's simple. I love my Savior. I love His Gospel. I can't put a # to the blessings that have come from it. It has saved me in times of heart ACHE, SORROW, and DESPERATION. And provided JOY beyond description. Who doesn't want that?

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior. I love His Gospel. I'm grateful for His LOVE and SACRIFICE. I am forever INDEBTED to Him. I NEED Him. And so do others. And so... I embark on a journey just like my Savior that I might get a glimpse into His life. That I may Become more like Him. That I may invite people to come unto Him. That they may have JOY! I am so ready to teach the people in Mexico... I just hope they are ready for me! (:

How I live my faith

I want EVERYONE to have the opportunity to know that their Savior Jesus Christ loves you! Jesus Christ struggled His entire life. It was NEVER easy. The pain He endured... incomprehensible. If He could do it His WHOLE life why can't I for a fraction of the time? I'm 19. I'm a broke college-student. I'm IMPERFECT. But I will do what I can. I can't walk on water. I can't calm the sea. I can't make the lame walk... or give words to the mute. But I CAN heal souls. The message I share: The Gospel of Jesus Christ, It does just that. It heals souls. It fills the heart with JOY. Jesus Christ SUFFERED and walked ALONE so we NEVER have to. HE LIVES! HE LOVES YOU! He will CRY with you. He will LAUGH with you. He will CARRY you. If only you let Him in.
