Hi I'm Joaquim

I am a family man. I work with international trade and love getting to know different cultures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third sibling of a family of six, so I grew up in a busy environment where we did not need much to make a big party. I met my wife when I was nine but until a couple of years before my wedding in 2014, I never thought we would end up together. I love spending time with my wife. We have much fun playng songs, going to the theater, and reading together. I work in a freight forwarder in Brazil, where I have the oportunity to deal with lots of paper work and help companies with their logistic issues all around the world. My favorite part about my job is speaking other languages all day long and getting to know different cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I love to know by myself that our Heavenly Father loves us and that He answers our prayers. When wy family met the missionaries, I could pray and know by myself that their message was true. The Gospel makes us have the desire to do the best we can for ourselves and for others. I know that this is the restored Church of Jesus Christ and I know that through the temple ordinances I can live with my family forever.

How I live my faith

It`s good to have the opportunity to participate in church services. As a missionary I visit people and teach them about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and I do my best to help temporally and spiritually the people around me. I often have the opportunity to play the piano or conduct choirs or other music groups to church meetings.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Joaquim
They are going to share a message about how the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth today. They are going to ask you to experiment it reading the Book of Mormon, going to the church, and praying to know if their message is not true. When you receive the answer they are going to invite you to be baptized by someone whom holds the authority of God to perform this ordinance. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?
