Hi I'm Junior

I am Brazilian. I am happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, everyone! I am Junior, I got to know the church when I was 16, I served a full-time mission in the missions brazil sao paulo north and venezuela barcelona. I love the church and its members, it has been the greatest blessing of my life. I love hearing music, read, watch movies and spend times with friends and as a good brazilian, I love soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up believing that there was a Father in Heaven and that we must talk to him through prayer. I use to talk to Heavenly Father since the time I was very young, from as far back as I can remember. When I was 16 I used to ask a lot to Heavenly Father, if there was a way for me to follow Him, to make things right, to serve Him. I wanted to do it. And then we got a new english teacher at school some days later. The english teacher noticed I was very interested to learn english and he called me to join an english course. I went there and he started to talk about the lds church. I was kind of thinking, " Why does he talk about it everyday?" And he would call me to go to the church every weekend and talking about the church all the time. It was bothering me. I thought, "What's the matter? I do not want to know about a church right now. I am only a teenager." Some weeks later he said, "I want to do this. If you listen to the missionaries, I will not talk about the church after that." I thought, OK! I will say I did not like it and he will never talk about the church. I remember july 2007 going to a place and meeting the missionaries. To be true with everyone, I cannot remember a word the missionaries said, but I testify to you that I never felt something so great, a peace that was everywhere to me. I was able to see happiness everywhere in everything. It changed my life. I noticed it was the answer to the prayers that I was saying. A couple of weeks later, I was there, being baptized and starting a wonderful journey in my life. I know the gospel is true, is changes lives! It is a never ending light that shines on us! I testify that God is our eternal Father, He hears and answers our prayers! Jesus Christ is His only Begotten Son, I know Heavenly Father restored His church through the prophet Joseph Smith, it comes from my heart and soul, in the sacred name of our Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith attending the chuch on sundays, serving the others, reading the scriptures, I just got home from a full-time mission for the church. And right now I am serving and wishing and waiting for more opportunities to serve Heavenly Fathers's child.
