Hi I'm Robert

I´m a Texan, musician, Computer Science major, and currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!

About Me

I am 20 years old and a big fan of forró and feijoada. I absolutely love music. I love listening to it, but I adore making it. I play guitar and piano, and I played some percussion back in the day. I studied computer science at BYU and intend to persue it! I am a really into watching movies and reading books (The Lord of the Rings is a favorite) when I have a spare moment, however; riding four-wheelers and fishing with my dad is always great too. Although I may look like an American on the outside, I am very much a Pernambucano on the inside. I have been serving here in Pernambuco, Brasil for over a year now and I could not be happier. It is such an honor and privilege to serve the Lord as well as God´s children. I treasure every moment I have here on my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have seen how the gospel changes lives. I have read the Book of Mormon. I have felt the powerful spirit that comes from its pages. But even more so, I have seen that change that has come into my life by living its teachings. I want nothing more than to continue on the path that I am on and to bring as many of God´s children with me that I am able! I know without doubt, that this is the true gospel. I am certain of the reality of Christ´s atonement. I am comforted by the fact that we have a Prophet on the earth to lead and guide us. Long story short, I am happy because I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by serving a full time mission. It is truly the best experience I have ever had and I can not imagine how my life would be if I were not here. I truly know that the Lord is merciful because he has extended to me the chance to serve as a missionary. I spend every single day preaching the gospel and bringing people closer to Christ. There is no other work that is more satisfying than this. I would encourage every single person that is able, to serve a mission!
