Hi I'm Tania

I'm from Portugal, and i'm starting my mission in Brazil Belo Horizonte Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young single adult from Portugal, ready to go on a mission of 18 months in Brazil in Belo Horizonte, and I am very excited to serve. I'm 22, and when I'll return from my mission I want to continue my studies in college. I'm very proud of my African heritage, i really love Africa.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and my testimony has always been a little guided by my parents. But when I decided to go on full-time mission, my testimony has grown. The atonement of Jesus Christ helped me a lot to overcome many obstacles, trials. I'm not perfect, but the church is perfect, has everything that is good to help us to be more like our Heavenly Father, to help us to come to Christ and his love. I'm still in the church today because of my testimony, because of my faith, because the Father's love for me, because of my Savior Jesus Christ. He paid the price for my sins, for our sins. He is the only one, the perfect one, the Redeemer. I know that if we obey his commands, his Gospel, we will be eternally blessed, individually and as families.

How I live my faith

I am leader of the young women in my ward and classes remind me of my own education when I was their age. It's very rewarding to teach them and to guide them in the Gospel. And now I'm starting my mission. This will be the best time of my life, I know that I can constantly feel the Spirit of the Lord upon me, and I can learn much more about the Gospel and Christ than I've ever learned in life.
