Hi I'm Joel Góes

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a Mormon since I was 5 year old, when my parents were baptized in Campinas, Brazil. I grew up taking scripture classes and serving at church in several callings which helped me to serve others and my Heavenly Father. I have a lovely wife and 2 boys. I went on a mission to Curitiba, Brazil and my son Jonathan just returned from his mission in Japan. My son Andrew will be leaving in about 18 months to his mission. 

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I know by myself from the bottom of my heart and through the Holy Ghost this is the only true church of Jesus Christ on earth. Jesus Christ has established his own church in our days the same way He established when He was here on earth in the old days. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and I know it is true after reading and praying about it. I'd to invite you to do the same, and to know all these things for yourself and have these testimony in your heart and mind.    

How I live my faith

Every Sunday our family go to church to learn and partake of the sacrament in remembrance of the atonement of Jesus Christ. In my family we pray together every day, and we have family home evening.
