Hi I'm Raphael

I'm French, I'm rugby player, I love music, I'm a missionary in the Great Italy Milan Mission, and... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Raphael Portellano, I am currently serving in the great Italy Milan Mission. I was born and raised in the south of france, near the city of Marseille. I love to, learn languages, make friends, play rugby, play music and sing. I LOVE the gospel of Jesus Christ and I am so grateful for the blessing I had to be born in the true church and for the blessing I have to be a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church, and I am so grateful for that. I then decided to go on a mission. I read the book of mormon from cover to cover and everytime I opened the book and read it I felt the spirit of God who told me that it was true. I firmly believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church of God restored here on earth, that Joseph Smith Jr. is a Prophet. I know that the a Man can be fully happy only by following the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The joy I feel in my heart, thank to His gospel, is the 'why' I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Italy Milan Mission. It's a great blessing in my life to be able to be a missionary of our Lord Jesus Christ. It gives me the opportunity the help people grow or come clother to Christ.
