I’m Pedro from Brazil
Pedro lives in the largest country in South America—Brazil. He lives in Curitiba, the capital of the Brazilian state of Paraná. Pedro likes to spend time with his mom and dad and his older brother and younger sister. They love to visit the temple and go to the beach together. Pedro looks forward to being a missionary someday!
Each morning I read the scriptures and pray with my family before I go to school. My favorite subjects are art and the history of the Brazilian Indians. Not many of my friends at school are members of the Church. I talk to them about what I believe and invite them to come to church with me.
I like to draw. I spend many hours every week on my artwork. I also like to visit the library and look at the art books.
My favorite scripture story is when Nephi returns to Jerusalem to get the plates of brass. I like to set and complete goals. I plan to earn my Faith in God Award before I turn 12.
I love to play football (soccer). Another sport I like is
hapkido, a kind of martial art from Korea.
When I grow up, I would like to be a missionary. I want to serve in Manaus because it’s where the Amazon forest is. Then I want to work as an art designer.
My family likes to visit the temple in Curitiba and walk through the gardens together. I was only four when the temple was built, but I remember going on the tour at the open house. It is a special memory for me.
