Hi I'm Christian

I grew up in the Swiss Alps. I have dedicated my career to digital development and strategy. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the late 1960s. I am from generation X, or, as some say, the“lost generation.” But this does not mean that we are lost for God! As a young student I saw the emergence of computers, and I was fascinated by them. I have since made a career with computers. Some friends and I were computer pioneers. I have contributed to the development of several successful software programs, and I have written a number of mainstream articles related to the GNU / Linux operating system. I like trains. I enjoy playing tennis and going on adventures in the mountains. I am a father and a happy husband!

Why I am a Mormon

I was strongly touched by God when I was 18 years old after spending most of my youth living contrary to the teachings of the Bible. Since then I have always had friends in several churches. I chose to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after 30 years of Christian life and years of study of Church history, reflection, and reading the Book of Mormon. I testify that by reading and praying, God spoke to me many times in very powerful ways. Another reason I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ is that I realized the importance of God's ordinances and commandments in approaching Him and in dealing with others in the world around me. Without the commandments, there is no righteousness and grace loses its meaning if it is not accompanied by the limits that God sets on the us to avoid unnecessary offenses. Many other aspects of biblical life are taught in the Restored Church. This is the case of the covenants we help make for the dead, which give a lot of hope for the eternal family. I do not view or think my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is an opposition to other churches or a denial. On the contrary, the presence of several people was crucial in my journey. Since I'm Mormon, my love for them has grown. To be Mormon is to get back on the road to progression.

How I live my faith

My faith permeates my daily life. Both are not distinct! My wife and I are involved in administrative support to migrants. I like the contact with others, and I see the suffering of those around me (the widow, the exhausted young parent, the divorced and indebted father) as many occasions that deserve a few moments to stop with them. I try to be available for my church and to answer the calls I receive.
