Hi I'm Mauro

I'm from Argentina. I'm a dreamer, I enjoy studying and observing, I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. When I was 12 years old me and my family moved to a neighbouring province. There, I continued to study at school until I went to university. I studied criminology for one year, then I left to study to become a professor of music. I learned to play guitar by myself when I was 12, and ever since I have played in different bands, always learning by myself. When I went to university I learned how to read music, among many other things. I love astronomy, that has been one of my hobbies since I was a little boy, I have read lots of astronomy books, I really love staring at the stars in a clear night, I love the whole Creation. I really enjoy living a quite life.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was child I remember my mother and my father trying to find answers to their questions, going to different churches, reading books about religion, etc. One day missionaries knocked on our door and my parents let them in. A special feeling came into our home, and we received a spiritual confirmation that what the missionaries were teaching was true, a confirmation from God. Few weeks later we were baptised. Throughout my life I have received many testimonies, through the power of the Holy Ghost, that the church, the Book of Mormon and its teachings are true, that Joseph Smith said the truth, he was a prophet called of God to restore the true church, the fullness of the Gospel and the priesthood authority of God to perform sacred ordinances, such as baptism and marriages for time and eternity. I know with all my heart that this is the church of our Saviour Jesus Christ, it is something I cannot deny, because my Heavenly Father has revealed it to me through the power of the Holy Ghost. This knowledge has blessed my life in wonderful ways, I enjoy real happiness despite of trials I face everyday, because I know that Christ lives, that He loves me and He has perfect plan for my life. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is what gives purpose to my life, He carries my burdens, He is the Light and the Life of the world, that is why I chose to follow Him, being part of His church.

How I live my faith

I love serving in the church, I served in different responsibilities within the church, mostly teaching Gospel classes. I love studying the scriptures, I pray to find answers to my questions, I love encouraging others, I try to be patient in difficult times and to be diligent in what I do, I love my family, I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ by serving others, and that brings me a huge happiness.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes!!! We strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ in all things, not only in word but in action also. We treasure up His teachings and believe that He died and arose from the dead on the third day, and that makes possible for us to return to our Heavenly Father. That is why this church bears His name! Show more Show less
