Hi I'm Elder Pereira

I'm serving in the BEST MISSION OF THE WORLD: Brazil Sao Paulo North Mission. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm Brazilian and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since I was born. It has been wonderful to me, because I have been learning righteous principles, according to my parents' example. In this moment I'm serving as a misisonary of the Church in the Brazil Sao Paulo North Mission. It has been an amazing experience! I love to talk about the gospel and help people to know the right path that leads us to God's presence. Before my mission I used to play soccer, I love it! I desire to do my best to the Lord during this time of my life. After my mission, I want to merry with a special girl of the Church and seal myself with her for all the eternity. I want to apply my efforts in the studies and find a profession to my confort and my family's confort. I want to keep helping people, temporaly and spiritualy. I love to be a mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was born my parents alredy were members of the church, but they encouraged me to recieve a personal testimony of this Gospel. A testimony is the knowledge and a spiritual witness given by the Holy Ghost. A testimony can also be an official or legal declaration of what a person perceives as truth. Something very important was to know that the path that I would follow was true. The Profet Joseph Smith was the responsible for the Restoration of the church. Through him, God revealed a set of ancient writings of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. This ancient set is called "The Book of Mormon". When someone wants to know if "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again establisehd on the earth, preparatory to the Second Coming of the Messiah", it's important to recieve a testimony of the Book of Mormon, because if the book is true, so the church is true either, but if it is false, the church is false too. I know that the Book of Mormon was revealed and inspired by God. It changed my life. I know that Jesus Christ lives. He leads this church. If you are searching for a path that fills you and answer your questions, believe: God called a Profet. He talks with him and gives us instructions. I know it. Come with us and recieve a misisonary in your home. Choose to follow this path. I know that it will the the best choise of your life.

How I live my faith

In this moment I have been working as a missionary of the church. The missionary purpose is "Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end". It means that a missionary should speak with a lot of people in the streets, knocking doors or in church events. Why? Because we believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been Restored to earth. In the same way that Jesus Christ established in the earth, we have a living Prophet and a Quorum of Twelve Apostles with the true authority of God, called Priesthood, today. Knowing that the true path of Jesus Christ has been restored, we became anxious to share it with everyone! We believe that families can be eternal! Every person can be truly happy living the commadments of God. My family is happier because of this path. I can feel peace, because if I choose the right, I know tha I am going to be with my family not only in this life, but forever. It is awesome!
