Letter from the Brazil MTC President:
Sister Swensen and I are very
happy to let you know that your missionary has arrived safely at the
Brazil Missionary Training Center. What a great joy and privilege it is
to greet each missionary as they begin their missionary experiences
with us. We
will surely take good care of your missionary.
The missionaries now have
companions and are settled into their rooms. They are assigned to a
district with capable and caring instructors for language and lesson
study. Their branch presidents and wives, will meet them this Sunday.
couples are richly blessed as they work with, motivate, and interview
the missionaries assigned to their branch.
The MTC has a full-time
live-in physician to care for their health needs. He is assisted by his
able wife who is a nurse. We are also happy to report that the
cafeteria food is plentiful, healthy and very good.
Your missionary will be able
to e-mail home on Preparation Day after a morning at the Temple. This
will be either Wednesday or Friday, depending on individual assignments.
Your missionary is about to
make an eternal difference in the lives of many others. President
Lorenzo Snow said: “There is no mortal man that is as interested in the
success of an elder when he is preaching the Gospel as is the Lord who
sent him to preach
to the people who are the Lord's children". We love these missionaries
as if they were our own. We will watch over them carefully to ensure
they are ready for a wonderful missionary experience after the rewarding
time they will have in the MTC.
We thank you for preparing such a wonderful representative of the Lord.
President Robert Swensen and Sister Julie Swensen
