Mafia to Mormon, My Conversion Story

Mario Facione was born into the Mafia. He knew the game, he made the deals, and he ran the schemes. Clever and cautious, he learned as a young man how to play big without getting caught. So when two clean-cut young men wearing dark suits showed up on his doorstep, Facione’s main concern was to figure out what kind of scam they were selling. Instead, he found what he’d least expected — religion. A religion he was willing to give anything for, even his life.
