Hi I'm Joao

I come from Portugal, I'm serving a mission in Manchester and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hello! My name is Joao and I am serving a Mission in England/ Wales! Until now, I've served in Whitefield, Southport and Chester! Back home I used to study Law in University "Nova de Lisboa" and I love that area of knowledge. I am the second child of 5, there is nothing like living with a big family! I love to play piano and I worked as a movie director in my free time. I would love to talk with you, especialy if you have any question... Feel free to ask anything =)

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon? Why shouldn't I be a Mormon if it's the most amazing and fantasting thing in the whole world?! In the world around me I see misery, confusion, sadness, sorrow... Living the standarts of the church I feel hapiness, peace, enlightment and love. I ask again, why shouldn't I be a Mormon? I've prayed to know if this church was true. I got an answer. I read the book of Mormon to see if it was true. I got an answer. I asked to God if He was there. I got an answer. I testify to everyone that talks with me that I know that my Redeemer lives, that we have an Heavenly Father that loves us all, his children, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only church on this earth that has the divine authority of God to act in his name. I bare my testimony that this work is from God.

How I live my faith

Ohhh, I love being a Mormon! Not only because I know this church to be true with all the essence of my soul, but also because it gives me the oportunity to grow as an individual and to serve my neighboors the best way that I can. In the moment I am serving a mission in Manchester. It is a great oportunity to help everyone next to me to come closer to God. I love helping and teaching others about the plan of hapiness that God has for everyone of His children on this earth. Never forget, this life is all about Hapiness! And where will you find more hapiness that the one you find in this church? I dare you to tell me! =D Back home I work with the youth of the church in such a variety of ways. I took them to make sports, sing and act on musicals and helped them in their schools affairs. I love this Gospel. For me, everything that I do in the church has always 2 results: 1 - Brings me closer to god; 2 - Provides me hapiness.
