Hi I'm Al Viera

I'm a Mormon who lives in Utah. I have struggled with difficulties in my life. Yet God has always been there to help me.

About Me

I am a father of five children, grandfather to six and a husband to my wonderful wife who has put up with me for 35 years. All our children are grown and living in various places though a couple still live in Utah with their families. I am currently disabled and am trying to get better. I have worked in high tech for over twenty years and computers in their various forms are my biggest hobby. I also enjoy skiing in the beautiful mountains of Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because the Holy Ghost has born witness to my soul that this is the true church. And He continues to bear witness to me daily as I study the scriptures, particularly the Book of Mormon. I also recognize my Savior's hand in my life through His help and encouragement. I feel Him working through me to help others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping out wherever I can. This sometimes means giving blood to the Red Cross, helping to clean the church building, donating time and money to help the poor and needy. I also help at the church welfare cannery to can fruits and vegetables to feed the poor.
