Hi I'm Mitchel

I grew up in Brazil. I could spend my whole life reading books. My friends and I love to play sand volleyball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a large and amazing family. We're spread out across the country, but when we get together, we play hard, eat hard, sing hard, laugh hard, and savor every second we have with each other. I treasure the memories I have of gathering as a family each night to listen to books on tape. I love audio books, but nothing can replace the feel and smell of paper and leather. My favorite memories with my friends are the late nights, sitting in a car or basement or tree, talking for hours about nothing and everything. I love good food, good music, good weather, and good people.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of this church because living the precepts of the restored gospel of Christ makes me happier than I could ever be if I were trying to live without them; it is not always immediate gratification, but it allows me to feel long lasting peace and a fullness of joy. I know that this is the true church and that the priesthood authority that was on the Earth during Christ's ministry has been restored. Because of this priesthood power, I know that I have the opportunity to live with my family forever in the presence of my Heavenly Father. This beautiful fact is more than enough to motivate me to continue to follow His gospel.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Piracicaba, Brazil. I've devoted two years of my life to the Lord. My purpose as a missionary will be to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel. I can't think of a better way to spend these next two years. I hope that my mission will set the tone for the rest of life, a life dedicated to service in my church and community.
