Hi I'm Emilio

I'm 22. Beautiful things happened to me since the day I decided to be Mormon.

About Me

Actually, I'm the only member of this Church, from a Catholic family/social group/nation. You may ask, How did you do? The Lord knows us, He gave me the chance to know the Gospel in a time when I was starving, spiritually, (but I haven't noticed that 'til I found it). Since the first time I found it on a library, Something made me have a great interest in he Book of Mormon. I was hoping for somebody who taught me more about this holy record. Finally, on my way home, I found the sister missionaries.... I was just interested to know "what in the world" are the Mormons, I didn't have any interest in changing my faith because I was "OK"... but when they came to my house for the first time, when they taught me to pray to know if the book is true, the desire to know, came to my heart. I pray, and then, I knew it! I feel it! My hunger was almost satisfied! I was not sure to be baptized, but I knew this Church is true. Of course, my family was not happy and my mother was trying to make me know another church, instead of the true one. A year passed, and my family didn't allow me to be baptized yet. That year helped me to nourish my faith and testimony, until the day I was ready and my Father softened my family's heart. I got baptized. I served on a mission in Argentina to represent my Savior. Even with my trials, I'm so happy to live the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Because here I find a plenty of joy, peace and meaning for my life. Here I found another Testament that shows me God still has the power of revealing MORE of His Word. Here I learn that every step I do in my life, has eternal consequences. Here I am nearer to God, and I find a meaning to my life because of the Plan of our Heavenly Father, a plan that you can learn at this Church.

How I live my faith

As a Church leader, I have the responsability of strenghten my brethen, young or old brethen, by visitings, classes, etc. I try to know and love my fellows very well. I also teach English to the children at a public elementary school.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Emilio
The Word of Wisdom is the law of health God gave to His Children. He wants us to enjoy our lives, and everybody knows that only can enjoy it with good health. That's why we don't smoke and we don't drink alcohol, coffee and tea, in order to care and strenghten our bodies. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Emilio
Yes. We have the Bible. We love the Bible. What happened when there's a group of students without a teacher? Maybe they'll try to learn by themselves, but we're not sure if they're learning the knowledge they need. That's the same with the Restoration. Without a prophet, nobody will know the plan of God by themselves. Without a prophet, they won't know the Way that will lead them to salvation. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Emilio
Look at the name of the Church in our meetinghouses, temples and other buildings. We believe Christ is the Only True Way to our Father in Heaven. I testify He leads this Church trough a living Prophet who receives His Will. Show more Show less
