Hi I'm Tiago

I´m a teacher and tech-freak, and I´m a mormon.

About Me

I live in the south of the state of Rio de Janeiro, and now I'm preparing to go to Brazil João Pessoa Mission. I live with my mother and bu now I am the only member of the church family. I like to travel and go out with the missionaries.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I am from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints firstly because of the pass along card and the Book of Mormon. I had met the church by chance and curiosity in 2005 when I found a card on the street. Members give this pass along card to people for that they might call a 1-800 number and receive what the card offers and in my case this was the Book of Mormon. I had already heard of this church, but always bad things, so I have called and after some time I received the missionaries. I really take it with a pinch of salt and full of doubts, they answered me and then just asked me to read the book. We scheduled another visit and I had not read yet, then they taught me another lesson, reinforced again and asked me to read the book. In their third visit I had already read the book, not all, and told them how it was. I´ve cried when I read and I could understand much more clearly the will of our Father and a little about the great sacrifice of his son, Jesus, when reading 3 Nephi chapter 11 I thought: "what am I doing for him?'' Any book has never ever made ​​me to have this feeling so strong that I would follow it, that´s why I decided to accept that and be baptize just after one month later, after all the lessons certainly. Seven years have already past in the restored church and the fullness of the gospel of Christ, a prophet, 12 apostles and continuing revelation.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am the Sunday school teacher, held from 10 to 11 am in the Itatiaia church. Besides that I have to hometeach at least once a month, each male church member is a home teacher of another family.
