Hi I'm Lucca Albuquerque de Oliveira

I was born in Salvador, Brazil. I speak Portuguese. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary and I'm serving in the California Los Angeles Mission. I like to play soccer, basketball and other sports. The most common sport in Brazil is soccer and I love it! My favorite food is Japanese food and Brazilian food. My father served a mission in Brazil and that gave me more motivation to go on a mission too. I'm really happy to be here serving a mission and I'm loving the people in Los Angeles.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I prayed and received an answer, and I know that you can receive an answer from God. I was baptized when I was 8, and I just remember that it was a great experience! I am happy to be a missionary, I am happy to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, I am happy to know the Savior.

How I live my faith

As missionaries we need to live our faith everyday by teaching people. A good opportunity that I had was serve in a Temple as a volunteer! I also served in a mission in Brazil for 3 months while I was waiting for my Visa. I taught some young people of the church on the seminary and Sunday school, and that helped me to understand and how to teach the same way Jesus Christ taught.
