Hi I'm Alessio Giolitto

Hi, I'm an Italian guy, member of the Church since I was born. I'm serving in the Chicago West Illinois mission and it's awesome.

About Me

Hi, I'm Alessio Giolitto, a 20 years-old guy from Verona, in Italy. I was born of Mormon parents and I've always been part of the Church. I lived in Italy my entire life except for one year, when I was an exchange student in Idaho Falls, USA. I graduated from Italian High School in 2014 and I'm serving a full-time Mission in Illinois, USA. I'm really friendly and outgoing and I love making new friends and getting to know more and more people. I love to travel everywhere in the world and to get to know new places and cultures. I love food and I think that Pizza is just the best! Other passions of mine are Theater, Skiing and European Soccer. After serving as a full time missionary I'm planning on going to College and probably to one of the BYU's. Music is a really big part of my life and I like to listen a bit of everything and to enlarge my musical knowledge. I'm a big fan of ThePianoGuys, Lindsey Sterling and Alex Boye, I think they're super awesome! There's 5 of us in family, my dad Sergio, my mamma Stefania, my younger brother Andrea and my little sister Airina. But considering my American family I have two more parents and 8 other siblings! I am in a relationship with a beautiful Italian girl, Elisa Ashley Carrus, who is going very soon to be a full-time missionary as well, and I couldn't be more excited! What I can say about life is that if we put God first, all other things will fall into their proper place or will drop our of our lives. We will be blessed and happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a strong testimony of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ in these latter days. Living my faith makes me a better person. The principles of this Church made my life much happier and meaningful and that is why I want to spread the message of our Savior. I am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ that gives me every day the opportunity to stay clean and to return someday at my Heavenly Father's presence. I love having a living prophet. I really do believe that Joseph Smith was called to restore the true Gospel at this time. I really do know that God didn't leave us alone and that He talks to us today just as he did back in times, through His servant Thomas S. Monson. Through sincere desire and prayer we all can know these things for ourselves. The Heavens are not sealed, we can feel that these things are true through the divine witness of The Holy Ghost, who can make us feel peace and warmth and testify of all this. I bare my testimony that whosoever shall ask will receive an answer, and will not be disappointed. And life will never be the same!

How I live my faith

Right now I'm a full-time missionary so my entire life is dedicated now 24/7 to the Church of Jesus Christ of Letter day Saints and I really couldn't be more happy. I serve in the Chicago West Illinois mission and I will do so until January 2017. What I do basically is to study the scriptures every day, to offer service whenever needed and to talk to people of our Faith, inviting them to come unto Christ and helping them building a foundation on our Savior. I love doing this service since it gives me the opportunity to consecrate my time entirely to my Heavenly Father, hastening His work on the Earth. He has blessed me so much throughout my life and this is the smallest thing that I can do to give something back and to show Him how grateful I am. I love being a member of this Church and a disciple of Christ and I know that if we press on with steadfastness in Him we will return to live with Him someday and with our families as well.
