I got my mission call!

Post by turbofan »

For those who wanted to know:

I have been called to serve in the Brazil, Ribeirao Preto mission. I will be reporting to the Missionary Training Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday, August 23, exactly one week after my 20th birthday. I will be learning Portuguese.

For those that don't know exactly what I'm talking about... I'll be living in Brazil for 2 years with the sole purpose of preaching the gospel as an LDS Missionary. During the 2 years I won't have a job, no school, and no contact with females beyond a handshake. It's a full-time job and then some. Pretty crazy!!

Wish me luck!

Well one way or another, you'll come out of this a better man. Best of luck, my thoughts and prayers will go with you. Stay away from Ipanema Beach, and... viva Senna!

How much contact do you have with females now? :)



That would be a deal breaker for me, but good luck! It will be a GREAT experience I am sure.
