Hi I'm Lucas Oliveira

I'm was born in Brazil, lived in Utah for 6 years, love juggling, going on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently 19 years old. Going on a mission very soon, in about a month, to L.A. I love games, jokes, juggling, and just good old geeky stuff.

Why I am a Mormon

Well... the best way I can explain this, is that, there was a time I didn't want to be. I was born into this religion, so it became common culture for me to live the way we do. But i always felt I had to know for myself. I went out and searched other religions and became Wiccan for a good month or two. What made me come back and became a Mormon is my testimony of Joseph Smith. I know that no man would go to the trouble and suffering he went through, or he put through his family, just to keep a lie. He knew something that he couldn't deny, no matter the consequences. He was a blessed man. I'm a Mormon because I believe in Joseph Smith, and I believe in the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I'm going on a mission. Besides that, the usual stuff. I love going out with friends, and I always try my best to keep the standards of our activities as high as possible, and if something they do its against my believes and standards, i have no problem leaving. But i also know my friends, even some not being Mormon, respect my believes and also try to keep a clean and respectable environment for me and those around them. :)

Are Mormons Christians?

Lucas Oliveira
Yes, very much so. The name of our religion is "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints". Be strongly believe in Jesus Christ and his love for us. He atoned for our sins, and he is the key in the plan of happiness that God has planed for us. Show more Show less
