The Randomness of Tiago

My name is Tiago.
I am portuguese but am now living in the UK. I am 18 years old.
I have been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the England Manchester Mission. I am reporting to the Preston MTC on the 17th of May 2012.
I love my faith. I love reading.
I love life! :)

  7. "Also, I have come to the conclusion that the Holy Ghost is like a Soother and Rioter! Think about it! When we feel the spirit we feel peace, comfort and love. Soothes bad feelings and riots those nice feelings. However, you can also have a stupor of thoughts! That’s what I would call Duralumin Rioting! Do you get me? Haha!"

    "Hello everyone!!
     
    How are you all doing?
    I am having a great time here at the MTC! They know how to keep us busy!
    For those of you have written me letters, I am trying to reply to them ASAP!!! But because we don’t have any time for ourselves during the day, the only time I have to write letters is one hour before 7:30am and one hour after 9:30pm. Now, remember that in the morning I have to shower, make my bed and get dressed, and at night I have to write in my journal while people are talking to me!! haha So the only time I really spend on letters is 15mins every night and 10mins every morning plus P-day! :)
    So, here at the MTC we have 14hour days! We study, study, study and we teach, teach, teach! On tuesdays we get to go to the temple, do shopping, laundry and vaccuum cleaning. On Fridays we go to Manchester and do street contacting!
    Doing street contacting was so scary! Lot’s of people were being rude to me and my companion… But we also managed to find a couple of really nice people! The spirit is so strong here at the MTC! The food is great! And I have gained 5Kg already! I am loving this! :)
    I hope to hear from more of you soon!!! Miss you all like crazy! :)
     
    Lots of love,
     
    Elder Pereira”

    "So, our days are SUPER busy with lessons!!! In the classroom we are learning techniques on how to teach, plan and stuff like that… We also have some "investigators" which we teach. But those lessons are recorded and so we have to watch ourselves and try to improve."

  12. Hello, Raquel here:

    Just to let you all know that I’ll be tagging Tiago’s mission posts as ‘elderteegs’ both on this account and my own.

    I’d like to remind you all again that all the posts made on this account will be made by me and not Tiago; I’ll try to remember to say it’s via proxy in all of them.

    A video will be uploaded tomorrow morning as well as a quick update (he was allowed to write an e-mail home saying he got to the MTC safely) ;)

    All other updates will be on Tuesday as that is his day to write home.

    Updates will also be posted on his Facebook account (for those of you who have added him) and on elderpereira.blogspot.com

    There might be special Tumblr Stake messages at times which will only be posted on here and on the Tumblr Stake Facebook group.

  14. God Be With You Till We Meet Again!

    This will most probably be the last post that I personally post myself for the next 2 years!

    In about 5 hours, my Stake President will come to my house and set me apart as a Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to labour in the England Manchester Mission.
    From then on, I will start to follow missionary rules as closely as possible. I will not be using my laptop or phone, I will have someone with me 99% of the time, and I will be representing the Lord.

    To serve a Mission has been my dream since I was a little boy. Now, it is finally happening!
    I will have the opportunity to serve the Lord and the people in Manchester. I will be able to share the Gospel and my testimony with all the people I meet!

    While I am out in the field, my sister (Raquel) will be posting updates of how my mission is going. If she doesn’t post much, tell her off! If you’d like my address, ask her! :)

    Also, feel free to follow my Mission Blog!

    I just want to wish you all a great two years! I wish you the best of luck as you finish High School or University, get married, go on missions, get new jobs, etc! I love you all!
    I cannot wait to get letters from many of you! And to finally speak to all of you again in two years! :)

    I’d like to finish off my post by letting you know that I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Restored Church of Jesus Christ and that it contains the Fullness of the Gospel. I know that my Saviour lives. That He suffered and died for me, but on the third day He rose again to deliver us from death. I know that the Prophet Joseph Smith was a man Called of God. That through him, the Priesthood and the Gospel were restored again. That through him, the Book of Mormon was translated into the English language. I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God and another Testament of Jesus Christ, as well as the Bible.
    I know that Heavenly Father has a Plan for us. That He wants us all to return to Him one day, and that He loves us.

    That is my Testimony, as I have lived and applied the teachings that I have learnt at Church, and as I asked my Father in prayer.

    I love this Gospel!

    Don’t forget that we are all Missionaries! Spread the Word of God with everyone! Be examples of the believers!

    See you in two years!

    I love you all!

     
     
  15. I hope you have a wonderful time on your mission! I've only talked to you once or twice in the FHE tinychat, but I know Heavenly Father has some amazing plans for you! :) Good luck!
