Hi I'm Joseph

I was born in Luxembourg. I'm serving a mission in Chicago/Brazil/Boston. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I`m currently a missionary serving in Boston Massachusetts. I speak English as well as Portuguese. I love playing basketball, reading, and enjoying company of friends (outside the mission, of course). I`m a very open person once I get to know you. I am defensive of my friends and loved ones. I love Brasil and will return one day. I hope to work there using both of those great languages. I will continue studying Mechanical Engineering after the mission at BYU Idaho. Agora sou um missionario, servindo na Missao Boston Massachusetts. Falo Ingles e Portugues. Adoro jogar basquete, ler, e curtir a presenca dos meus amigos (fora da missao, claro). Sou uma pessoa aberto quando lhe conhecer. Sou defensiva dos meus amigos e amados. Eu amo Brasil e voltarei logo. Gostaria trabalhar la, usando ambos linguas maravilhosas. Vou continuar estudar Enginheiro Mecanica depois da missao na faculdade, BYU Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member. Each in my family have been members as far back as I know about. But there came a time when I had to figure out for myself if the things that I had learned growing up were in fact really true. In preparing to go on a mission I learned of these things for myself; and on the mission, teaching all of the people of my convictions, I strengthened my testimony in these things. Now I Know where I am going and what I need to do to get there and help my family and friends to arrive there as well. Nothing could change that conviction, that knowledge that I have now.

How I live my faith

Currently I am living my faith by serving a full-time service mission teaching other people about the church, how it was restored to the Earth, and inviting them to know of it`s truth and follow it. It is a unique opportunity to share what I know with people who have never heard of it or have misunderstood or simply never have been invited. I do my best to always follow all of the commandments, and when I do make a mistake, I pick myself back up, resume my course, do my best to make restitution, and ask my God for forgiveness. But in all seriousness, the most important thing I can do to "Live My Faith" is share the gospel with others.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We proselyte to invite everyone to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel of Jesus Christ through Faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. The proof we have that this is all true is the Book of Mormon. Anyone can know this by reading from it and praying to Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, to know if it is true.
