Hi I'm Marina Sampaio Mouzinho Borges

I was born and grew up Brazil. I am preparing to serve a mission. I was called to serve in the Japan Tokyo Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Brazil. I started law school in my city, I like it too much! But I have to pause it for a while because I am going to serve as a missionay in Japan in a few days. It has been awesome to learn a new and very different language such as japanese. I am from a big family, I have 4 sisters, witch means 5 daughers. I have a brother who passed away 3 years ago, but I know that through the temples covenants I will be able to see him again. I love my family and it is hard to leave them for this period but I know our Habenly Father will take care of them, He pomisses that and I trust Him. I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and joy it gaves me. In hard times, I just could find real peace and wisdom in the true of the restored Christ's Gospel. I just am able to feel close to God when I am obedient to everything I learn and that's how I feel so much joy: being close to Him. When I forget myself and put Christ on the top, everything comes easier to deal with all life's situations. Knowing I can have my family with me forever makes every effort to give up of something I like for something better. I love my family and Christ makes possible to keep with them forever. I am a Mormon because itt makes me feel the real hapiness.

How I live my faith

I really like to participate in the "HEPLING HANDS" church program. The members here in brazil participate of charity projects such as school reforms, blood donations etc. I serve in the church as Primary music leader and as ward missionary. I love children. Before I was called I just liked music, not kids haha. But this calling made me develop love for the children, and now I realize I will miss them so much because I am going to serve as a missionary in Japan. I love my Savior and I hope I can be the best missionary I can be.
