Hi I'm Marcos

i grew up in Brazil. I moved a lot since I was a little kid, around 8 times. I just graduated from LDSBC. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am an active person, that loves to go outside. Since I was little kid I always loved sports, and I still do. I played almost every single sport; I played soccer, football, volleyball, tennis, handball, basketball, and even swam. Right now, I am serving a mission and loving it. I am still pretty "young" as a missionary. I have only been on my mission for 16 days, but one thing I can say for sure, there is no better place to be than on my mission. The daily experiences I have are overwelming, you can really fell the Spirit of the Lord in you life. As a missionary I have been able to see the truth of the scripture that states that God's angels are going to be on your right, on your left, behind, etc. I have been able to really see God's hand in my life as a missionary. I love this work. I LOVE THIS GOSPEL!

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon? That is a question that at the same time is hard and easy to explain. To explain that I will bear my testimony. I am a Mormon because I have put the gospel to test, I have put the teaching we receive to test and I got an answer. I felt that I was in the right place by putting the gospel to "a test". I encourage everyone to put the gospel to the test ( not the people in the church) and I know if you do that you will come to know that this is the true church. This is the church restored to the earth, that has the power and authority of God to do miracles. I know that if you put the teaching of this church to the "test" you will come to know that this is the true church. That is why I am a Mormon, because I put into practice the teachings of this true church and knew after that that there is no way that this church is not true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. I had a couple of calling in the church but mostly as quorum president or counselor in the young man. I learned a lot on those calling, but the most important thing I learned was that people look at us every single minute and we don't even notice sometimes. At school, at work, in the street people look at what we do, and that is why we need to always be an example to the world. Another thing that I do to try to live my faith in to do my duties in the church. There are lots of things we need to do in the church ( not only in if we have callings). This is a church of service, and that is what I try to do. I try my best to do whatever I can to help not only in the church but also in my community. If there is someone moving, I try to be there to help. If there is a activity at church I try to help put the chair. Another way that I just started to do that shows how I live my faith is by serving a mission! Anyways there are lots of other example I can put here, but this is good.
