Hi I'm Andrea

I like to have fun. I like Oreos. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Hawaii, but grew up in Oregon and Florida. I have five younger sisters, and they mean the world to me. I was a full time student and I am working on getting my undergraduates degree in Art, and I hope in the future to get a Graduates Degree in Graphics Design. My goal is to become a freelance graphics designer, but more importantly, I want to become an awesome mama! I like art, photography, music, laughing, people and food! I made the decision to serve the Lord as a full time missionary. I didn't always plan on being a missionary, but I just love the gospel so much that I want everyone to know how much I love my Savior, and how much he means to me. I will be serving in Brazil Goiania from May 2013 to November 2014. I'll be speaking Portuguese like a champ (with help from the Lord)! Eu me chamo Andrea, Sou dos Estados Unidos. Neste momento servindo missão na missão Brasil Goiânia. Tenho cinco irmãs mais novos. Gosto de arte, musica. Gosto de pessoas. Por 18 meses estou compartilhando o evangelho com todas as pessoas no Detroit e Brasil.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Gospel, but like everyone else I had to learn that it was true on my own. It didn't all come at once, it was just a few small incidents that helped my testimony grow. The first time I read the Book of Mormon all the way through was when I was 16. When I finished reading the Book of Mormon, I read the promise in Moroni 10, and prayed and I knew that it it was true. O ser no Mormon e mais de ir na Igreja de Jesus Cristo dos Santos dos Ultimos Dias. Sou uma Mormona porque eu gosto de Jesus Cristo e sei que O Livro de Mormon atualmente fala sobre o ministerio de Cristo nas Americas. Tenho ledo o Livro de Mormon e outros livros nao faz tao grande uma differencia come este livro. Quero todas as pessoas ler-se este livro porque vai trazer falicidades a todos quem deseje o ler. A Igreja de Jesus Cristo tem a pletitude do evangelho de Jesus Cristo. Tem o sacerdocio que Jesus Cristo tevi durante sua vida na Terra.

How I live my faith

I try to share the gospel with those around me through my example. I always try to do what is right. I think that being a good example is one of the best ways to show the love of Christ, as well as how important my beliefs are in my life. I always try to help those who are in need of help, because I know that even when I think my trials are hard, I know that there is someone who has it worse that me. I constantly try to share my beliefs whenever the opportunity comes. As a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I live my faith by relying COMPLETELY on the Lord. I'm trying my best to live what I teach and I have recognized the difference it has made in my life. Everyone can come closer to Christ, and I'm living my faith by being an example and trying to bring everyone just one step closer to their Heavenly Father. Quero ser um bom exemplo por minha familia e meus amigos. Quando sento inspirado por O Espirito, tento seguir fielmente. A servir uma missao teve muito temor, mas sei que Deus me desejava para servir. Quero ser obiediente e convido as outras pessoas achegaram-se a Cristo. Porque de Jesus Cristo, tenho muitos felicidades e quero todas as pessoas sentir-se o amor e paz que e em minha vida.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

As a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I served a mission for one main reason. Because I love God. I was blessed to have an understanding of his love for me, his eternal plan for me, and how I can have happiness forever with those I love. When I knew this for myself, I realized that I needed to share this with others. As members, we learn the importance of sharing the wonderful knowledge with everyone we know. As missionaries, we can literally devote all of our time to those who are looking for this important knowledge and help others find this happiness that we have been so lucky to have.
