Hi I'm Frederico Rocha

I was born in Brasil. I am serving a mission in Nagoya Japan. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love surfing and playing soccer. I love anything to do with soccer. I love watching it, playing it, everything. My favorite team is Palmeiras! I am currently serving an LDS mission in the Japan Nagoya area. I have grown to love the people and the culture and the language. I definitely want to return one day. My mission is coming to an end soon. Afterwards, I plan on returning to college where I am studying International Business Administration.

Why I am a Mormon

As I have come to draw closer to my Heavenly Father, and following the words of the prophets and having my personal prayers every day, reading my scriptures, going to church. My heart has been pricked when I do these things and I really feel God´s love for me, and his presence close by. I can know and feel a confirmation of my faith that I can always rely on my Heavenly Father. Following his guidance, I have found the true happiness in life by living this gospel. And really understanding the real meaning of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. And this knowledge helps me make the right choices in my life. Even though I make many mistakes, I can always repent and find hope through his pure love for me.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church. Therefore, I have always seen the blessings that come from this gospel. I enjoy going to the religious classes and meeting new people. I really just like being around people. Going on campouts with the people in my neighborhood were always a lot of fun! And getting to know new people, through dances and other church activites were some of the best nights! I always tried to be as involved as I could in my ward and neighborhood to help my friends and make new ones!
