My name is Jesse Antonio Faggioli. I have been called as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to serve for a period of 2 years in Rome, Italy. This blog is about my life during this two years. This opportunity is really exciting for my family and I because Italy is the land of my ancestors. My grandfathers family is from a little town north east of Rome called Civitella del Tronto. There are already 3 other people in my immediate family that speak Italian. My father, my brother and his wife. My father served in Melbourne, Australia where he learned to speak Italian. My brother served in Milan, Italy and met his wife during his service. Italy has always had a special place in my heart and it only seems right that I am being sent to serve in this part of the world so that the love that I already have for such a great country can grow even more as I preach to its people. I leave at such a special time for the members over in Italy with a temple being built. I have no idea what the lord has in store for me while I serve, but i know that if i serve with all my heart, might, mind and strength I will do great things through his power to further the work of the lord. My family and I will be blessed for this journey I am about to go on. This blog is the story of my two years of service in Rome, Italy.
