Hi I'm Luciano

I'm a uruguayan Mormon.

About Me

Soccer, friends, old cars, architecture, mom's friday pizza, sunny days and beautyful sunsets, family traditions ...that's me. I grew up in uruguay South America in a family of 8 with a lot of traditions like go camping every summer, visit grandma every sunday and my favourite one friday night home made pizza that it was so good that we started doing it on saturday nights too!. I'm studing architecture. I like it because it gives you the oportunity to create, express yourself, make other people's life better , and doesn't have too much mathematics XD

Why I am a Mormon

I have been going to church since i remember, i grew up there. I've been taught by my parents good principles like being a kind brother and a Christlike person. It made sense and seemed like a good life and it is, but it wasn't enough to me at that time. I had to do something more , Experince for myself and get a reason to do what they taught me to do out of my own desire and not just doing it because it was something good. So i started my own research reading my scriptures , following the example that i had seen of my mother whom i saw every morning having breakfast and reading the scriptures, "let see what is so interesting in the scriptures that she reads them every morning" i said to myself. And i started reading and asking God if the book of mormon was true , and soon after i saw a change in myself . I saw myslef goin to church out of my own desire and having more desires to do which was good , i really felt change of heart , and a testimony of the holy Ghost that the things that i had been taught were true. So i'm here because i know of myself. Later on i experienced the reallity of the atonement of Jesus Christ , and i knew for mylself that what happened 2000 years ago when he gave his life for me , and for you , it was and it is real.

How I live my faith

Right now i'm serving a 2 years mission in Southern California , where i'm helping other people enjoy the happiness that folowing Christ brings. It is fun , and totally rewarding to see how people ,that at the beginning are strangers, come to Christ and strive to follow his teachings and recieve the happiness peace and blessings that God gives to those who obey him is something that gave me a new meanning to my life. I have had other experiences in living my faith , ussually they are related with serving in the church. I use to work with little kids of 9 to 11 years old wich was an amazing experience and i learned a lot from them. But i think that no matter who you are , where you are , the biggest expression of living your faith is loving others , helping people and being happy!
