Hi I'm Ricardo Henriques

I am Brazilian and I am a martial artist... I am a mormon!

About Me

I love martial arts, I was the Brazilian champion in karate, when I was 16, I moved to the US when I was 16 with my mom, I love my family, and currently am serving a mission in NY NY North Mission, speaking portuguese, since I already speak the language it is not a problem, I like to play the guitar and to make new friends, I love to talk to people and I trully like to listen to their concerns. I wasn't always strong into the church I used to do many things which I am not proud of, but what trully got me into the church was a feeling that I had while watching the MTAB sing " The Spirit Of God" since then I have completly changed my life. I am now a lot more happy things do not shake me as much, and I noticed how much I have grown just by seeking to know more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am part of the LDS church because, I want to live with my family forever after this life, and I know that this church is true, I know that the book of mormon is another word of God, and I because it is the church that makes me want to be a better person, not only on Sundays but everyday of my life.

How I live my faith

I go to the Maryville, Tennessee Ward, where I have a calling to work as a ward missionary. I do my best to be more like Jesus Christ, and to be able to share of my Charity, which is the pure love of Christ, I truly think that as we try to live the Christ like attributes we will truly come to love one another and also God and Jesus Christ, I know that sometimes it is not easy but we have a great example to lead us to the right way, which is Jesus Christ our older Brother. I love to be a part of this church and to see this little miracles happening in the world, when most of the things going on are mostly bad.
