So.....a lot has happened over the last year that I have been home from my mission. BYU, teaching at the MTC, and falling in love with someone in a different continent definitely made my life busy yet wonderful. I am now married to my sweetheart, Lucas França, and I am living in the beautiful country of Brazil.
I have been in Brazil for 5 months now and it has been a very humbling and amazing experience for me. I can feel that God wants me to be here to learn something.....and that is my mission now. To figure out what God wants me to learn.
I was talking to my parents today and they gave the idea that I should continue my mission blog and talk about all the experiences and things I am learning while on my new "mission" in Brazil. Even though I won't ever have to change companions, I am now learning a new language and teaching people in their homes (but this time, it's English, not the Gospel). I am trying new foods, meeting new people, and growing as a person. Sounds like a mission to me!
From now on, I will be writing about the things that happen here in Brazil, and talking about what I am learning. Feel free to comment!
