Hi I'm Ricardo Mendonca

I grew up in southeastern Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since Childhood I loved music and had religious inclinations. I worked as a piano teacher for most of my life. I met my wife at a young age and after my return from the mission we married and now we have three children .

Why I am a Mormon

Every year my family went to my grandmother's house, and when I heard she had become a Mormon, it sounded weird to me. One day when we were in the house of my aunt, the missionaries arrived for leave a message. My parents listened and were touched by a wonderful and sweet spirit. I was nine that time. My whole family was baptized.

How I live my faith

I Love to serve in the church. Today I work with young people 14 to 15 years and have had the opportunity to serve as bishop of the churchI ! It was a wonderful experience !

What is the Book of Mormon?

Ricardo Mendonca
To understand what the Book of Mormon is, we need to understand what the Bible is. The Bible is an ancient record of the prophets of the "old world" that Jesus is the Christ, our Savior. The Book of Mormon is an ancient record of the prophets of the "new world" that the same Jesus Christ is our Savior. This two books though geographically distinct have the same testimony that help us to understand the truth. Christ taught to Jews that He had "other sheep" John 10 16. The Book of Mormon is the story of these His "other sheep", with the promise that we can know if it really is what it is. Show more Show less
