Hi I'm Bruno

I was born in Brazil, grew up in Utah. I love playing sports, and hanging out with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Brazil, but raised in the United States. My family kept the Brazilian customs and traditions, which I am very grateful for. I played soccer and football in high school, and one year of soccer at a university. I enjoy studying physical exercise, doing it, and helping others gain a greater understanding of it. I am currently serving as a missionary for the LDS church, and I have plans to resume my studies in the medical field after my service. I love to relax with family and friends. I love to go on vacations with family and friends as well. I also enjoy doing things like sky diving, hiking, boating, and other random stuff.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As I have grown, I realize how great a blessing it has been to be born into this faith. I know exactly what I have to do to be a truly happy person. The mormon gospel lays it out clear and simple. I am surrounded by good influences who also strive to do what is right to be able to achieve happiness in this world. I am a Mormon because this faith clearly lays out my path to true happiness now, and later in my life.

How I live my faith

When I was younger I was very involved in the youth group in the church. I participated in the various activities provided by the leaders of the church. Although I had a basic knowledge of the beliefs of the church, I didn't do much to broaden my understanding. When I reached the age of 19 I had an opportunity to serve as a missionary for two years. I am currently serving, and I am very thankful for the experiences and lessons learned. When I return from my service, I will contribute to whatever congregation I attend to the best of my abilities.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Bruno
We are called Mormons because of the belief we have in a book called The Book of Mormon. We believe The Book of Mormon to be the word of God as well as the Bible. The Book of Mormon does not take away or add to the Bible, it is simply another testament of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
