Hi I'm Michel'Angelo Pena

I'm Brazilian, married and have one little girl, Julia. Love being a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a teacher. Getting graduate in History. My family means a lot to me. Basketball and camping are my hobbies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was 19 when I started reading The Book of Mormon found in my family's bookcase. My goal was to do it from cover to cover. I couldn't imagine that during the following months, I was going to have my life changed. I felt like avoiding wrong things I used to do and started to research more and more about the church's doctrine. Less than a year later, I went on a 2-year-mission. I'm an active member nowadays, and the desire to avoid wrong doings is still on. After marrying a lovely woman, Julia came into my life. She's my pride an joy. Even though most people feel like it is old-fashioned to study about Jesus Christ, I find joy and peace in studying about Hs life. Also, I know through my feelings that this is the church where I can find the true information about Him.

How I live my faith

Going to church every Sunday morning is part of life. Waking up early is a challenge, but nothing like a nice nap in the afternoon to make up for it. My calling is to take care of the young men and organize activities with them. The congragation I attend is small so I help in the administration matters too. I don't get paid for it though.
