Brent's Mission Call

Brent was home in Orem with a bunch of friends, neighbors and family. Jill, Karrissa and Joe were on video-chat, and I had just landed at the SLC airport (early) and was listening in via cellphone as Brent read his mission call.

Dear Elder Parsons:

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Brazil Sao Paulo North Mission.

You should report to the Missionary Training Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday, 13 August, 2008. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Portuguese language.

Yea! The waiting is over. Brent, and the entire family is excited for this opportunity.

A couple of years ago I had a teaching assignment down in Sao Paulo, and on a walk one morning just happened past the Sao Paulo MTC. Some of the best food of my life was in Brazil.

This is going to be a great experience for Brent, and for all of us at home. Congratulations Brent!

Congratulations to Brent and the family. We are all excited for him, knowing he'll be a great missionary. You are my son, Keith, with your fast post and photo's. I would of done the same thing. In fact I sent an email to other family members after I got home last night. Glad you are here to support him. This has been quite the week of events.

I put music from itunes on the really slow home computer onto CDs and want to put those CDs on my laptop.My laptop also has itunes. But the home computer is almost 7 years old. We think it runs so slowly b/c it has so much junk clogging up the hard drive. But it is possible it could have a virus that my parents don't know about. If I put the CDs onto my laptop, could it get infected with a virus? [url=]santoramaa[/url]
