Hi I'm Oliver Tragante

I grew up in Curitiba, Brazil. I am currently serving a mission in Medellin, Colombia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty big sports fan. Since I can remember, I always played soccer, basket and enjoy to watching and playing sports. I have a deep and abiding love for music. I worked one year as a web designer on a e-commerce and I intend to follow through with this after my mission. Most of the time I just hang out with friends. My family is incredibly important to me and I'm thankful for any time I get to spend with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, so it's always been a part of my life, but at one point of my youth I began to have my own questions about the gospel and the Book of Mormon. I cannot remember the exact moment that I got my testimony but I know with the power of praying to Heavenly Father that this restored Church and Gospel of Jesus Christ provides a way for me to not only live an eternal life with my family but also an opportunity to be in the presence of our Heavenly Father and his Son, our Savior. Being a member of the church is a blessing that I can not describe. I know if everyone do the same that I did, praying sincerely and specifically asking our Heavenly Father if this is really the only way, the single kingdom of God on earth, anyone can get your own answer.

How I live my faith

By doing three little and Powerful things provides a way that I can always keep my faith in progress. One of them is reading the scriptures and pondering about the holy words that contains these canonical books. Second of them is go to the Church every week, remembering all the covenants that I did being baptized and also learning in all classes where there are trained and inspired teachers who teach many things about the gospel. And the third of them, it's pray. Putting our whole soul to talk with our Heavenly Father and listen to the whisperings of the Spirit
