As many of you know, I have chosen to serve an LDS mission for a year and a half. I have been assigned to serve in Manaus, Brazil!!! Yes... I am scared, nervous, and so excited. Oh, and did I mention NERVOUS??!! There are so many unknowns. I have never left the country, I don't know how to speak Portuguese yet, I don't know anyone there, I have to leave my family, etc. I could go on for a while. SO you may be wondering why the heck I am doing this? Well I can tell you one thing, if I didn't know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the true church of God, then I would not be doing this. BUT I do know with all my heart that this church is true. I have read the Book of Mormon, studied, and prayed. I know that my Savior lives. I know that it is only through the gospel that we can find true happiness. I know I have to share this amazing gift, and I am so lucky I get to share it with the people of Brazil!!!
I am so grateful for my family and friends. Without y'all I wouldn't have the faith to embark on this wonderful journey. Please feel free to write me!!!! (Addresses are in the "Contact Me" section). My mom will be posting my emails on this blog weekly so you can follow along on my crazy adventure. See y'all in 18 months!!!!!
