Hi I'm Alex

I play the drums. I'm an amateur Architect. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a twenty-one year old currently serving as a missionary for this church in Fresno, California. Before I left, I enjoyed playing golf, listening to music, working on my car, and just hanging out with friends and family. I also attended a local University. When I finish my missionary service, I plan on starting a family, and returning to school to complete my masters degree in Architecture.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I believe that God has a plan for everyone and everything, and we can receive the best of blessings by doing our best here on Earth. Just like every object had a plan before it was created, so did we. Right now, we are fulfilling this plan, which is meant to bring us experiences, both good and bad. I also strongly believe in the family, and how they can be together forever. I myself, have a desire to be married one day in one of our glorious temples with a wonderful woman. I believe that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, all problems can be resolved, all sins can be forgiven, and we can obtain eternal happiness, joy, and overall, a place in our Heavenly Father's plan. I also know that through our good works and our Faith, we can be compensated by our Savior Jesus Christ's Atonement. We all make mistakes in life, but God knew this before we even came here. What matters most, is that a person abides by the rules, does the best that he/she can, and we will be "lifted up at the last day" as the Book of Mormon states.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith mostly by abiding by high morals that our church teaches, and by doing my very best in all situations. I try not to disappoint, but it is sometimes hard. But I know that God has a purpose for me and everyone in the world; right down to the smallest newborn. Right now as a missionary, I teach the Restored Gospel of Christ, as well as different principles that help people come unto Him. I love being a missionary and I know that everyone in the world can benefit from our message.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Alex
I have a strong testimony that families can be together forever. By abiding by Principles that Christ taught, as well as making covenants (or promises) in our Temples, the family relationship can last beyond the grave, and ultimately be together to live with Christ and Heavenly Father.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Alex
The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It was written in the Ancient Americas around the same time as the Bible in the Middle East. It provides us with all we need to return to our Heavenly Father. Both the Book of Mormon and the Bible work together to provide us with a strong testimony of Christ. Show more Show less
