Born in an emigrant family, in Portugal, he spent his teen years in a seminary to become a missionary priest.
He took the vows of obedience, chastity and poverty.
Today Rui makes tons of money, he is married, has 4 daughters and the only obedience he pledged is to his dreams and his purpose:
Changing the World so he founded a non profit organization to take action and eradicate poverty of all kinds.
Rui completed several missions in Africa and Portugal last year alone involving hundreds of people and hundreds of thousands of dollars which has even attracted national TV, radio and newspaper coverage.
Please share a lil’ bit more about your story, your family and what you do for fun so our audience can get to know you better.
I always relate to some underground thing, not mainstream thinking and have a different way of seeing things.
I owned 2 companies.
2 years ago, I started plugging into the right people to see the world in a different manner.
Help other people to help themselves.
So I started a non profit to help those people.
I have 4 daughters and now my family is reunited.
What led you as a teen to becoming a priest and what were some of the lessons you learned from it.
Wanted to make a difference and do something different from everyone else.
At age 12 I went to a seminary, spent all my teenage years there.
Learned how to understand people better, and how to let go of things not important.
The best experience I had was in the monastery with monks.
No contact with the outside world.
Started to observe the monks and learned a big lesson that community works perfectly, they’re there 100-200 years, only because people are looking after necessities and desires of everyone else.
Please share with us more about your non profit organization.
My missions in Portugal and Africa keeps me driven.
Last year our first mission was Christmas, our non profit is called “GAS” (Group of Social Action).
Spent 12 days in Africa, took cars for them across the Sahara dessert.
35 people were involved on this mission actually there.
Then went to another country in Africa, has friend supporting orphanage there with 12 kids, now there is 65.
65 kids sleeping on floor, raining everywhere.
Conditions were really really bad.
Was there for 4 days and before we came back took pics of all the kids, bought a truck load of mattresses and left them there so everyone had at least a mattress to sleep on.
The power we have is incredible because we connect with so many people.
Rui, 2 years ago how did your success all begin?
The most difficult thing is not asking it’s receiving.
Most people start to resist.
My wife Melissa had an idea of buying this huge house on top of a mountain with no money.
Started a journey like crazy, training and allowing.
Around the 20th of December, the owner called and gave us the keys and took off.
The home was fully equipped and furnished.
Then months later the loan finally came after 9 months, never had to pay anything in the house because it was all paid by the other guy.
The secret is allowing things to happen.
