Hi I'm Alexander

I am a full time missionary serving in Barcelona, Spain, I love outdoors, and i am a Mormon

About Me

I am a son, I am a to brother to six siblings (one being my twin), and hold the priesthood. I play the ukulele and love to sing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Gospel by my Mother and Father who loved and still love each other very much, but moreover, they both had, and still have an unshaken faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a family, we have endured many hardships, several of them have been overcome, and countless we are still yet to endure. Though these hardships are defeating, occasionally to the point where I feel like giving up, there are certain experiences I have had personally and with my family where the spirit of the lord fills my heart with an eternal joy, and there is no denying my God. The Atonement has been a great stone path in my life, whether the agency and decisions of my own or of others have brought me down to an ultimate low, I constantly rely on the atonement for peace and healing. I know that God has a plan for me, It took me 18 years and a move from a big city to a small town as a senior in high school to realize that Gods side is the side I want to be on. This is the part that you here a lot, from everyone else, and now from me too, but I mean it when I say it, and I say it with all of the conviction of my heart that I know Jesus Christ lives, and his atonement is real! It has changed my life. --Now I speak very carefully, even reverently, of what may have been the most difficult moment in all of this solitary journey to Atonement I speak of those final moments for which Jesus must have been prepared intellectually and physically but which He may not have fully anticipated emotionally and spiritually—that concluding descent into the paralyzing despair of divine withdrawal when He cries in ultimate loneliness, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Jeffery R. Holland.-- The knowledge that christ already suffered for my sins, and my pains, and my sorrows, so that I don't have to is overwhelmingly powerful to me. I still have to be chastened, fixed, and humbled at times, but a saint is a sinner that keeps on trying, and that is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

The Lord has trusted me with many callings within the church, knowing that they will refine me, which creates the desire become a better person. I have thoroughly enjoyed my most recent calling as a Temple ordinance worker in the Boise Temple. As I make the trip to the temple every wednesday, I allow myself to freely feel the spirit and continually search for areas in my life in which i can improve to prepare myself for my mission. I am eternally grateful for this Heavenly opportunity to spend time working in the Lords House to not only expand my knowledge of this gospel by striving to be my best self in becoming like my savior Jesus Christ, but also to perform sacred saving ordinance for present and passed lives, allowing them make covenants with their Heavenly father in order to live with him again.
