Hi I'm Albin

I grew up in The San Francisco, California area. I joined the Mormon church when I was 31. I am now retired.

About Me

I married 3 years after I joined the Mormon church. My wife and I have 5 children. My favorite hobby is doing family history. My ancestry is from Switzerland, and I have been blessed to be a able to do much Swiss research. I love to be with our children and grandchildren. My wife and I are now retired and we will be leaving soon for a church mission to Germany.

Why I am a Mormon

Some members of the church introduced me to the missionaries. Soon after that I started reading the Book of Mormon. One evening, while I was reading in 3 Nephi, near the end of the book, I received a confirmation from the Holy Spirit that what was reading was true and was from God. From that experience I knew that the church was true and I became a member. Since joining I have received many blessings and I know that my Father in Heaven loves me and my family. I know that Jesus Christ leads and guides this church, and that Jesus is our Savior.

How I live my faith

I try to always do what is right. Over the years I have served in various different capacities in the church. For the last 6 years I have served as a worker in the church's temple in Provo, Utah. That has been a great experience.
