Hi I'm Wladimir Ribeiro Junior

Born in Sao Paulo, Brasil. Raised in The U.S. Love the ocean, music. Serving as a Missionary in the Oregon Salem Mission.

About Me

I'm kind of a nut, haha. I WANT to go out and do just about anything outdoors. Now, anyways. I love good music chilling on the beach with friends, and playing my ukulele. In which, I learned to play on my Mission. I was born in Sao Paulo Brasil. When I was six years old , I moved to the United States with my family. It was awesome growing up there. Mainly in Utah. After High School I moved back to Brazil, but not to Sao Paulo, but to Florianopolis. Greatest decision only 2 nd to going on a mission. And all I can say it's one of the most beautiful things God ever put on the Earth was that Little Island. My favorite sports are Rugby, and American Football. I speak 3 languages, Portuguese, Spanish, English. ( also from mission). Happiness in this life and the next and Family mean everything to me. I get a thrill from talking to new people everyday, I enjoy being around people. Learning new things and having new experiences, is always exhilarating for me. I hate bananas.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it's true! I know it is. How many people can say that the people of this world are guided by those are called to be Prophets and apostles, that they literally see Christ on a regular basis, and when they speak, a power comes over you telling it's true? How many religions have 80,000 + 18, 19, 20, 21, year old men and women giving up two years of their lives, for a cause to bring Christ into peoples lives? Where else can you find a place that seals families, mothers and fathers to their children, husbands and wives to each other, other than the Temples of God? Where else can you find those that hold the sacred authortiy of God, that enables them to act as if Jesus Christ himself, the son of the living God, was there? I'm a mormon because it's where eternal and everlasting joy is published, shared , loved and talked about. And where those who are true seekers of joy and truth can find it.

How I live my faith

I want to do as much as I can for people, I enjoy people and being around them, tying to figure out what it is that they need and how I can be of any benefit to them. So I want to be more like the savior and share what I love to the people I love. I'm a missionary, and I love every opportunity I have to share this Gospel. In the OSM!! I'm always looking in the scriptures of what is the greatest thing I can share to uplift people and that is; The atonement of Jesus Christ.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Wladimir Ribeiro Junior
Abstinence from pre-marital sex. Sexual relations between a husband and wife are encouraged and a divine gift to strengthen each other. Not watching or wanting things that can harm us spiritually. Like pornography. This law is to keep us truly happy, have joy in our lives, trust, confidence, and live happily with our spouses. Keeping the law of chastity helps gain self-control and a reliance on the spirit and a want to be with my Savior again. It's divine, sacred, and so it should be protected. Show more Show less
