Hi I'm Lucas Ribeiro

Hi, my name is Lucas. I was born and raised in Brazil. I am now 18 years old and I am about to go on a mission. I´m a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Lucas and I am 18 years old. I am from Brazil and I have been a Mormon since I was born. When I was 16 years old I went to the United States to study junior and senior year of high school. I am now back to Brasil and I am about to leaving on a mission to Montevideu Uruguay. One of my hobbies is soccer, I love playing it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I was about 16 years old I had the desire to know for myself if the church was true and if The Book of Mormon was true. I had always heard from family members and friends that it was true but I had never tried to find out for myself. One day I kneeled down in my bed room and I asked God with a sincere and faithful heart if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints and also if The Book of Mormon were really true. Right after I ended my prayer I felt the most wonderful feeling I have ever had in my heart testyfing to me that those things were true and they came from God. Since then I know what I should do and I know that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is by giving my best effort to follow God´s commandments. In about a month I will be going to serve a mission and by doing so I will also be serving the Lord. Another way that I live my faith is by reading The Book of Mormon. I find the answers for all my questions and concerns on the pages of that book. I also live my faith by asking God with all my heart if what I read in The Book of Mormon is true or not, and with faith the answers always come. On my mission I will be teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ unto the people by faith on him and in God.
