About Me

I'm Brazilian, I was born in Brasilia, but Recife is in my heart! I love playing volleyball and laughing about nothing, and I love muay thai fight =P I studied psychology but I locked to serve a full time mission. I love hanging out with my true friends and my family. "O resto é resto!" =P

Why I am a Mormon

I always went to church, since childhood, but also always been in the faith of my parents! Then grew up and realized I needed to go to church by myself! What I did was really establish a relationship with our Heavenly Father through prayer and use one of the tools he has given us, The Book of Mormon! I could then put the proof the promise contained in this book, to read, to ponder and to pray! The peace that I have received in my life, I never felt before, and I got strength to leave some things not important aside, it was essential to recognize what really makes me happy – Gospel, Family, Good Friends! All through the reading of the Book of Mormon that not only shows life experiences, but speaks about our Savior. I found myself, after a few years lost, and wanted to share about the Atonement of Jesus Christ with every person possible, friends and not friends. The Sacrifice of Jesus Christ is real. Even having lived there over 2000 years ago, his atonement has an effect on my life daily. He was not only a good person who performed miracles and preached peace and love, but more than that, He is my Savior, He gave His life for my sake, and the least I can do to repay is helping people to recognize that He did the same for them. I am happy to belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and be a full-time missionary. Leaving my comfort zone brought me blessings and knowledge, I never would get if I were in the same place, unwilling to change.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary, and better way to live my faith 100%, doesn't exist

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries will share a message about Jesus Christ and what He has done for each of us. Teach and help people look at this world with eternal perspective, teaching on the Plan of Happiness that will lead us to our Heavenly Father if we commit to being obedient and give our best.
