  • Rice, beans, potato salad, guarana, pastries(Salgados). (Jen)

What was a funny experience?

  • Replacing the word to ask for with to Sin. (Spencer)
  • My companion and I were trying to explain that we receive the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands the same way Christ did by hitting each apostle over the head (da um cada para eles) rather than giving each apostle the Holy Ghost! Needless to say the rapaz didn’t want to be hit over the head! (Lalie)
  • Seeing the little kid train rides. (Tyler)
  • My first companion, was really tall and walked really fast. I fell down a dirt road while running down to catch up with her and had dirt EVERYWHERE for the rest of the day. Ruined that shirt. (Jen)

What was a crazy experience?

  • Seeing people get shot. (Spencer)
  • We watched a gun threat and ran and got the police. (Lalie)
  • Seeing them kill a crazy bull with an axe in the street. Gunfire in the ghetto. (Tyler)
  • I was very oblivious to the dangerous situations I was in. We literally had angels protect us as we taught a girlfriend of a drug lord. They told us to leave right after the lesson and never return. (Jen)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Seeing the changes that were made in my life. (Spencer)
  • My favorite experience was watching inactives coming back to church and watching them walk into the chapel. I feel that even more than someone coming to church for the first time. Less or inactives coming back is the most beautiful experience because it is the Atonement at its apex!!!! Nothing is better than Forgiveness at its highest level!!!! (Lalie)
  • Seeing a family get baptized, mission conference. (Tyler)
  • We taught an 86 year old woman with dementia. She was very lucid at times in our lesson and the entire day she was baptized, confirming the truthfulness of the work to several of her adult children and grandchildren. (Jen)

What are some interesting facts about the Brazil Belo Horizonte East Mission?

  • Belo is the city that is set on a hill. (Spencer)
  • Has some of the most historical locations in Brazil. (Lalie)
  • Least baptizing in Brazil. (Tyler)

What was the weather like?

  • Perfect. (Spencer)
  • Hot and cold! It is freezing is the mornings and hot by the afternoons. (Lalie)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • Humble. (Spencer)
  • The people are so fun!!!!!! They are a little more down to earth and the food is amazing! (Lalie)
  • They like to talk, were laid back. (Tyler)
  • Brazilians are very open and kind people. They also are very tuned in to spiritual experiences. They believe in miracles. Probably the hardest things for them to overcome have to do with the Word of Wisdom. When they commit to that, however, they experience the miracle of the Atonement and admit to that. (Jen)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Don’t worry about a suit, just lots of pants and shirts and a few good pairs of shoes. (Spencer)
  • Pack enough to give some away! And good solid sandals are the way to go that way you feet can get wet then dry so you can avoid foot fungus. (Lalie)

  • Learning how to be lead by the Spirit is irreplaceable!!! (Lalie)
  • Persistence, ability to speak up, financial work, what it takes to lead. (Tyler)
  • Portuguese. (Jen)

What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?

  • That it only lasts a short time. (Spencer)
  • I wish I knew that the best way for you to be a missionary is to be yourself. Yes follow the rules but missionaries are not cookie cutters and only you have talents to touch and to meet certain people! Not all “missions” are the same! You may be there for that one baptism or you may be there for that one companion or you just may be there for yourself and one is not better than the other! All are beautiful and needed!!!!!!!! (Lalie)
  • The Lord needs you. He didn’t call Ammon, or Elder Holland to say the perfect thing to teach these people right now. He called you and you are enough! Just be willing and diligent and he will make everything else okay. (Tyler)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Brazil Belo Horizonte East?

  • Live it up. By the time your done, you won’t want to go home. (Spencer)
  • Allow that Lord to work through you. Communicate with your leaders. JUST GO AND LOVE EVERYONE AND THE LORD WILL DO THE REST!!! The mission is what you make of it! (Lalie)
  • Remember you don’t know everything, just learn. Also don’t try and control everything, just wait for the Spirit. (Tyler)

What was a funny language mistake?
