Brazil Londrina Missionary Survey

Here are survey responses from Brazil Londrina RMs, to give you a snapshot into what it’s like to live in the mission.

When did you serve?

  • 2005-2007 (Ben)
  • 2002-2003 (Sharylann)

Which areas did you serve in?

What were some favorite foods?

  • Feijoada! I like it so much I have been perfecting my recipient since then. (Ben)
  • Mousse de maracuja. Arroz e feijao. Bife. Churrasco. Abacaxi. Poca. Esfirra. Coxinha. Pao de queijo. (Sharylann)

What was a funny experience?

  • First day I was in Campo Grande and I saw a lady with a pet monkey.. I thought I would see that all of the time.. I was wrong! (Ben)
  • Oh the mice. I had mice in two of my homes and spent time chasing them in both homes but the second was the best. Sister Devries and I managed to trap the mouse in our room as we chased it through the house with a broom. We managed to trap it when it suddenly ran underneath Sister Devries’ slip on the floor. Without a moments thought, Heather slammed her foot down on the slip. Cruuuuunch, bones breaking. All Sister Devries had to say at that moment was, “That was my favorite slip”. I’ll never forget that day. (Sharylann)

What was a crazy experience?

  • I was walking down the sidewalk and a buss zoomed past extremely close. It was about 8 inches away.. (Ben)
  • Some of the dogs in Brazil are a little fiesty. We were “batendo palma” at a house and saw that there was a doorbell just inside the gate. There were two dogs inside the gate barking angrily. They ran to the back of the house so I took a chance in sticking my hand in to ring the doorbell. They came racing back. I managed to pull my hand out but in so doing left my front half exposed and they managed to grab my chest. I was bit, bleeding, and had to go to the hospital to get some shots and get cleaned up. It left a scar for a long time but I know without a doubt I was protected. (Sharylann)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • When I baptized the last person on my mission. He was ready. (Ben)
  • Bearing my testimony to a couple of Jehovah Witnesses when I barely spoke any Portuguese. They may not have believed me but I know the spirit was there and it was a testimony to me that I was where I needed to be. (Sharylann)

What are some interesting facts about the Londrina Mission?

  • The food was amazing there. I know someone that went to Manause. He did not share the same feeling about the food. The people are a amazing and vet religious. I counted 18 churches while walking for about 15 minutes. (Ben)
  • When I was there, it covered parts of three states. (Sharylann)

What was the weather like?

  • PERFECT Even the rain was fun.. (Ben)
  • During the summer, which is our winter, it was hot. Then in the fall, it’s really rainy. Sometimes, the streets would flood. In the winter, even though it’s not way cold, the humidity and wind bring on a really good chill. We wore coats and I have pictures of us huddled in blankets and hats and gloves in our house. Houses there didn’t have heating. (Sharylann)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • The people are wonderful and so selfless. They would have so little to eat but would make sure the missionaries were fed. I love Brazilians. (Sharylann)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Get shoes with good soles and be ready to wear them out.. Get a suitcase that can withstand a lot. I walked to my first area home from the bus station. It was about 4 miles. (Ben)
  • Sturdy shoes, no nylons, short sleeved shirts but bring a coat, hat, and gloves. (Sharylann)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • A stronger testimony. It kept me out of trouble afterwards for the most part. (Ben)
  • I am a better person because of my mission. My family was protected. I learned how important communication was. It has made me a better wife. I learned a love that I never knew I could have for others. (Sharylann)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Speaking with other people I didn’t know.. I can cook pretty tasty Brazilian beans and rice.. (Ben)
  • Communication. Cooking rice and beans. How to love others. Service. (Sharylann)

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

  • I wish sometime I spoke Portuguese better.. it will make a difference. (Ben)
  • I wish I had known the language better. I wish I hadn’t spent the first few weeks homesick. (Sharylann)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Londrina?

  • Work hard. Be dillegent. (Ben)
  • It’s a beautiful place with wonderful humble people. Love them and take care of them. I have been home for 12 years and very little time passes when I don’t think of the time I spent there. Keep in touch with them after you leave…one of the many blessings of technology today. (Sharylann)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • Coco with a ^ accent and coco without are coconut and poop, don’t get them mixed up. (Sharylann)
