Hi I'm Fabio

Born in Brazil, married in Italy and sealed at Switzerland... I'm a global Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Brazil, but my family is from Italy, where I was baptized almost 20 years ago. I'm married and father of 3 kids and a Java application architect for several consulting companies. Since I work with information technology and serve in my local ward, I'm always studying both technology and scriptures: life-long activities. My hobbies are serving as a driver for my kids and their friends, playing violin and breed my dogs.

Why I am a Mormon

I started keeping as much distance as I could from any church, but having some dear friends in the church I felt that I was ready for a sincere research for that truth they used to talk me about, at least to tell them they're wrong. A very good friend presented me the missionaries and I started studying and reading the Book of Mormon with them. I had over those years many experiences that gave me a concrete understanding of ours heavenly father's plan and I am thankful for that. Now I can see what Jesus Christ and his teaching did and still does for me and my family.

How I live my faith

I realized that one of my most important calls is a home teacher. This gives me the opportunity to visit my ward families and share with them my testimony. I'm pretty lazy and love my sofa, but I never got back to my home more tired then I leaved it. In my ward I'm serving as a second counselor of the bishopric, which means that I help the bishop to take care of ward's activities, organizations and members. It's a pleasure and an honor being part of this and I just can't imagine my live without the experiences the church and my friends provided to me.

Are Mormons Christians?

Just considering the name of the church, the answer is quite obvious: yes! But maybe the better question could be: What's the role of Jesus Christ for Mormons? Well, I can say that Christ is our savior, the central point in our heavenly father's plan. He is the only way to obtain out eternal life and our exaltation. Show more Show less
