I have been called to serve in the Brazil Londrina mission for 18 months. I report to the Brazil MTC on May 9th 2012. I will miss my family, friends, and worldly possessions, but am excited for the opportunities that await me as a missionary. My purpose as a missionary will be to invite others unto Christ. My mom (and family) will be posting emails from me on my blog.
I traveled from Maringá for Londrina today and was interviewed by Presidente Genaro, it was really special.
As I am the only sister returning home they arranged for a young woman from one of the wards to be my companion. I encountered Sisters here in Londrina where I will pass the night now and tomorrow we have dinner with Pres.
I don't have much time so just wanted to send a quick message how excited I am to see all of you again.
I know this gospel is true, That this is the church of God. I know that He loves us and knows us individually. The mission has been the best thing that I have done in my life and with my life. I know that Christ lives and that he is our Savior. I know that families can be together forever. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that reading it daily brings the spirit into our lives. I know that through the atonement of Christ we can receive forces to do the will of God.
