Hi I'm Pedro

I'm a husband, a geek and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 24 year-old man from Brazil. I'm married to a wonderful woman, also a member of the Church. Also I'm persuiting a degree at IT System Analysis and Development. When I have some free time, it's split between my wife and some computer games. My life now is pretty busy. I work at another city, travelling every day, then school at night. But even with a busy schedule, the Lord is always a priority. Feasting over the Lord's word spoken through his prophets, old and new, and attendind church meetings and activities gives me strengh to overcome hardships in this ever changing world.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom met the missionaires when i was at age 6. When they came home, i instantly got interest in going to the church. My mom, seeing my interest, though herself: "Churches are a good thing to children, I'll take him there". After some time she received a testimony of the truth, and since then, never left the church. I was baptized at age 8, then spent my teenage at the church, and at those times I always felt the Spirit of the Lord. I don't remember a day or a time when i asked the Lord "is it true?", but I always knew that I was on the right path. Later, I served as a full-time missionary, where I could come even closer to the Savior and help others have happiness in their lives. It was there that my testimony were really strenghened. Today i still feel God's love to me, and many and many times i feel that this is His true Church. I know that many people, even not of our faith, strives to live the gospel of Jesus Christ, and sometimes even better than we do! But here is the only place where my family can be joined forever. And so we are.

How I live my faith

At the church, I work in helping the young man teaching lessons every second sunday. Those are really special times, and I remember how important the example of older people were for me. Also I enjoy going to the church every sunday with my wife and to some activities. Also at my workplace I teach young people, helping them get a better education and hopefully a brilliant future in life. How good it is to help them at those special times, often difficult, where they are trying to find who they are, where they belong, and what they wanna be.
