O batismo de um casal velho que estava procurando a igreja muitas décadas e deram a ala um espírito de amor puro. Os jovens de Vila carrão abraçaram cada pessoa nova como realmente uma rainha ou rei no Reino do Pai Celestial. Esses jovens são meus heróis. (Cali)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • The bustle and strong work ethic from the time they are young. They love people and sacrifice for their fellow man. They love soccer and it was great to see the passion.

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Bring American candy if you have a hankering or are looking to make friends with youth. 3×5 cards- they don’t have any, but are fascinated by paper products. They love music and that includes your mission companion, who would love it if you brought him/her Jenny Phillips, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Nashville Tribute Band, etc. It’s a pretty industrialized place and you can find most everything, so I wouldn’t worry too much.

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

  • Se você tá aí pronto pra servir missão vá Não seja fraco seja forte qualquer missão é pros forte e tem que fazer o melhor não fazer coisas ruins indiferença missão é servir com amor com carinho e fazer o melhor possível pra crescer progredir fazer com que as pessoas encontram evangelho. (Angelo)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • Keep the genders of the Grandma and Grandpa straight. They still sound the same to me, I can spell them…I still can’t figure out how they sound different (you can always work on your Português) Avó = Grandma. Avô = Grandpa. (Cali)
