Hi I'm Gabriel Lima

I was born in Miami, Florida but live in Crystal Lake, IL. I am adopted and have a loving mother, father, and brother.

About Me

I attended Brigham Young University for 1 semester in Utah but now I am serving my mission in the Oregon Salem Mission Spanish speaking! I love to play Basketball, hang out with friends, and serve the Lord. My mom is from Italy and I have visited there many times and love the people, culture, and the food! I am a big Chicago Bulls fan, and love spending time with my family. I am not a quitter. I endure to the end no matter what happens.Life might get hard, trials may seem impossible to overcome, but when I do my best, and have faith in the Lord, anything is possible! i know that to be true!

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church. This church has helped me through my troubles and trials. This Gospel has brought me closer to people including to the Lord and my Heavenly Father. This gospel also brought my family together which I am grateful to be sealed to them for all eternity. The Gospel has brought peace to my life and proves that Heavenly Father loves each of his children. With that love and light that he fills me with, I can do all things. A Miracle. That is what the Gospel is, a miracle. I have always been a Mormon my entire life but there had to be a point where i had to find out for myself if this is the true Gospel. Through constant prayer and holding on to the bitter end, i have come to find out that this is the true Gospel on the earth today. Knowing that there is a Loving Father in Heaven makes it all worth it. The Love of God is all I need and because of his love, i have a loving family and loving friends. That is why I will always be a Mormon, for eternity!

How I live my faith

I was president of the Deacon and Teachers Quorum. I was a 2nd assistant in the Priest Quorum. I completed my Faith in God, and my Duty to God. I recieved the Stake President's Award in Seminary for all 4 years which means that I memorized all 100 scripture mastery, read all 4 books, and had 100% attendance. At BYU, I was a Family Home Evening Father which was in charge of the group and planning weekly activities. I am also serving a mission!!! I constantly try to have faith in my Father in Heaven and do his Will. I know that when we/I follow his Will and do the best that we can do, he will bless us. How I live my faith? I sacrifice my Will to His Will and enduring to the end with an eye single to his glory. He loves us and when i subject myself to him, I show that I love him. That is how i do it.
