Hi I'm Antonio Lima Tavares Fonseca

I am from Cape Verde. I like to play PlayStation. I am a rap singer. I am Mormon.

About Me

I am Elder Fonseca. I am currently serving a mission in the Birmingham, England. Things that I like to do are to listen to music, play football, basketball, PlayStation, and go out with my friends. Things that are important to me are going to church with my family together.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember when I was with my friend. We didn't have anything to do. We didn't have jobs. We didn't have anywhere to go, so we were walking on the street to try to find something fun to do. My friend and I walked next to the church. My friend had been Less-Active. He told me that there was an activity going on at the church that day: Family Home Evening. He asked me if I wanted to go, I was uncertain, but then I said, "Yes." We had a lot of fun at Family Home Evening. Afterward the missionaries set up an appointment with me. The missionaries taught me. It was good and I was pretty excited because the message was so good and so clear, but my other friend put a lot of doubt in my mind, telling me that the missionaries were liars. I prayed and asked God if the message that the missionaries taught me was true. After I prayed, my doubt disappeared. I felt like the message was pretty clear in my mind. My testimony began to increase and now I am serving a mission.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, I devote all of my time to serving the Lord. I spend my time finding people and teaching them about the restored gospel. Things get difficult, you receive a lot of rejection, but I carry on because I know the Lord will bless me and I know that I am preaching the truth.
