Hi I'm Helaman Fernandes

My name is Helaman Fernandes, I'm father, a husband, a entrepreneur, a law student and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Helaman, I am former missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, Entrepreneur in the Education field and also a Law Student. I am married to my beautiful wife Luiza and I have a little daughter called Manuela. I am active Mormon and I love the gospel and everything that it offers. I can say that every good decision that I made in my life is because of the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born in a mormon family, I just came to understand the religion in which i was in my youth, and it was then that I discovered it's real importance. When I started reading the book of mormon, understanding the sacrifices of the prophets and their followers and the main event in human history, the atonement of Christ, I finally could understand the importance and the magnitude of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my religion and I am grateful for living in a country where there is a freedom of belief and for living in a country were most of people understand what a great leader and prophet Jesus Christ was.

How I live my faith

As I said before I was missionary for Mormon church, in that case I had the opportunity to teach and help people to come closer to Christ, beside what religion that were from. It was an incredible experience, I became more humble and I learned how to care more about people and about the world that we live in. Today I am responsible for a group of men that are members of the church in the region that I live, together we try to help the society with their family, financial and spiritual problems, so they can live a better life and be able to come closer to Christ.
