Hi I'm Pedro Gomes

I grew up in Portugal, Oporto. I'm going to serve a mission in Cape Verde from January 2014 to January 2016.

About Me

Hi everyone. I'm Pedro, soon to be a missionary. I'm 18 and i just finished high school. At this moment I'm waiting to leave for my mission. In my free time, I usually spend time with my family and helping the missionaries out with their lessons. Other than that, I also play videogames as a normal teenager and soccer(football here in europe) I've got no ideia what I'm going to study in college, but fortunately I still have my intire mission to think about it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born inside the church. I used to attend along with my mother and sister, but I actually got my testimony later on when I was about 15 years old. Basically I got it when i started to care, about my future and my family. Being my mother and sister the people who I love the most in this world it wouldn't be fair if, after death, all that was spent on earth would end up being pointless. Also, when I started living the gospel, the relationship between me and my familiy and close friends improved substantially, I became happier and with the desire to follow Jesus Christ example and apply it to my life.

How I live my faith

I never had a calling till I received my mission call. After receiving it, I was immediately called to be ward mission leader. It consists in helping the missionaries in everything that they may need, planning activities for people that are being teached by the missionaries along with members of the church and being the link between the ward and the missionaries. At first it was tiresome, but in the end it was pretty rewarding. I'm really gratefull for having the opportunity to serve.
