Hi I'm Gabriel Beccari

I'm a robotics engineering student. I'm a guitar player. I'm a Brazilian. I love a nice cold weather. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, I'm Gabriel beccari. Currently serving a mission in The Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. Before my mission I studied Robotics Engineering, for the passion of building, programming and develo ping different things with, really, no limits. Music is my absolute passion. There is a feeling that I get every time I play the guitar that I can get nowhere else. I feel music can transmit what simple words can, and can uplift you when nothing else can. I love almost every single genre of music, especially alternative rock. I'm Brazilian, in mind and heart. It's a beautiful country, and the Brazilian people are the best. And yes, I play soccer, it kind of comes with the 'being a Brazilian' part, at least for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because, well, it's everything. I have had a really blessed life, and I attribute all of this to the gospel. Our family has grown closer together each day because of the gospel, and we have seen the blessings of being sober, chaste, kind, loving and charitable as a family, and as individuals. I could list all the blessings, but the list would go on and on. I think that what made the difference for me is that me and my family - mostly recently - have gone through really hard moments for us. The amazing thing is that we don't let ourselves get down. We know the Lord has a purpose for us! Im a mormon because when I've been on the lowest of lows, the Lord lifted me up higher than ever. I'm a mormon because when everything fell apart, the gospel put it back together. I'm a mormon because in every single hard moment of my life, I've seen the hand of God! Being a mormon made me understand that the Lord doesn't let us go through hard moments to make us suffer. He let's things get hard so He can make His hand present, and bless our lives. He wants to build us up and uplift us, refine us and make us who we need to be. I'm a mormon also because of what this gospel brings. All churches have good in them, every church has their truths and a lot of good! But the church has the fullness of the gospel. It has everything! It is the full gospel of Jesus Christ. If you're reading this and are wondering if you should search into the church - please do. Come and try it. See if we can't add more to your happiness, to your joy, to your peace. I promise we can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by putting it in action. Some say we only need faith, and nothing else is required. I believe the contrary. I believe that through my actions I show my faith, and the Lord recognizes our efforts, and thus Christ gave his example by serving people. I try to live more like Christ did: serving people, helping as much as I can, and preaching His gospel. As a missionary we have the privilege to constantly help other people and see the Lord working in their lives through our hands. Trust me, there is nothing sweeter. Being a missionary put to life my faith and all that I believe. It's literally every single day helping people, preaching the gospel, and doing your best to help people have the blessings I receive. The love I feel, the joy I feel and the peace I feel increase with each person I meet and help, teach and baptize. In other moments of my life, the way I lived my life was simpler: living the best I could to be who my Heavenly Father wants me to be! In the simple ways, as reading the scriptures, praying, helping other people and staying true to what I believe.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Gabriel Beccari
Practice what He taught! A way to grow our faith in Christ is to put to action what He taught and requires of us. For example: I only gained a testimony of tithing and fast offerings after putting it in practice! There as this one day I was having to decide between buying groceries for my week, or paying fast offerings with the money I had set apart, and I decided to take the leap of faith and trust in the Lord. The next day we had dinner with a family from the ward (our congregation), and we didn't know at the time but they are responsible for taking shipments from supermarkets in their home and calling people in to take the food (those that need food and have no money for it). And for some reason, the shipment arrived early and on the day we were there, and they said that since most of it wouldn't even be taken, that we should take as much as we could. And we did! The Lord doesn't give us a witness until the trial of our faith. The light cannot reach us through the fog, unless we walk it's way. Show more Show less
