Hi I'm Francesca Bruno

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of this church my entire life. When I think of the blessings that the gift of the gospel has given me, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I'm grateful for a family who is a part of the church and for the opportunity I have to be an example of the believers. I love this church, I love Jesus Christ and I love Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both converts to the church, so I have grown up LDS my whole life. It takes more than being born into the church to be mormon though. I have a strong testimony of the true and everlasting Gospel. I have felt the spirit in a way that I never have before when I do simple things like read the scriptures and pray to Heavenly Father. I believe in the principles and ordinances of the gospel and I believe that by following them I can achieve eternal life and live with Heavenly Father again. That is why I'm mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission. I have been assigned to labor in the Czech/Slovak mission speaking the Czech language. I live my faith by fulfilling my purpose as a missionary which is to help others to come unto Christ by helping them to receive the restored Gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. I know that if I have faith in Christ and follow him in all that I do, I will be able to help others. The greatest desire of my heart is that myself, my family and all those that I teach will be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father again.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

The church helps everyone they can. We are taught from a young age the importance of service. In primary, the program Faith in God that offers them the ability to serve others and pass off goals. In the Young Women's program, girls are taught their divine roles as women and taught to do service for those in need. The boys participate in scouts where the main focus is service. Among one of the churches programs is the humanitarian program that helps people that have experienced natural disasters or that are living in poverty. The church believes in serving all the way that Christ would regardless of being of the same faith. Show more Show less
