You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Brazil Teresina Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months.
You should report to the Brazil Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, October 22, 2014. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Portuguese language."
So begins the letter that changed my life! I couldn't believe it when I opened my mission call and read "Brazil Teresina Mission". It was absolutely not where I expected to go, but I know that Brazil is where my Heavenly Father needs me to be. I am so excited to dedicate 18 months to serving Him and His children in the Brazil Teresina Mission. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored gospel of Christ upon the earth today and I cannot wait to share my faith with others!
