I fly to the Brazil MTC in less than two months! November 22 is so close now! It seems like forever since I opened my call letter to find out I would be going to Brazil.
Where I will be serving!
The past four months have gone by so slowly. When I read my call and it said that I'd be there on November 23rd, I remember thinking that that was sooooooo far away. Now it's almost here! And I'm getting nervous. And excited! It's going to be a great two years for me. I can't wait to see what my life will be like for the next two years. I am excited to see myself grow spiritually and to see my personality change.
The capital city of Goiania
I'm excited to meet my mission president and to meet all my different companions. I'm excited to see a new part of the world that I've never even thought about visiting before! Whenever I was asked where I wanted to go on my mission, I was thinking I'd like to go somewhere in Europe or Australia or New Zealand. South America never even crossed my mind. And now I'm going to Brazil! I think that just proves that God sends His missionaries where they need to be, not where they want to be. But I'm sure that once I get to Brazil and start teaching the Gospel I will want to be there more than anywhere else in the world. I'm very excited to start this new chapter in my life!
