He's Goin' to Brazil

My brother, Thomas, received his mission call to the Campinas, Brazil mission! We all put in guesses of where he would go and the date he would enter the M.T.C. Well I actually guessed Brazil, ha ha. There were three of us who guessed Brazil, but my brother-in-law, Devan, guessed both Brazil and the date April 28, so he was definitely the closest. It was a pretty awesome experience to watch Thomas open his call and read it out loud. After he opened it we started looking up all sorts of things about his mission and found out lots of awesome things. Just a few things we found out, there's a temple in his mission, which is awesome, and it's a really warm climate, that lucky duck. He will leave April 29, and go straight to the M.T.C. in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Thomas is my only brother, so this is defnitely a new experience for our family. I'm really trying not to think about him leaving and being gone for two years, but I really do want him to go, I would be more sad if he didn't. We're so proud of Thomas and the great kid that he is, we know he will be a wonderful missionary. We love ya Tom!

This is so exciting! I can't believe he is old enough to go though! Its weird to see our siblings get older! I just picture them still so young sometimes! This will be a wonderful experience for your family!
