Well, Here it is. My mission. Who would've thought I was gonna be here today. It's crazy to think it was a whole five months since I got my call to serve as a full-time missionary to the Sao Paulo Brazilian people. And suddenly I'm here, packed, and ready to go. Some people asked me why I wanted to leave my friends, family and life behind to go on this crazy mission.
I've thought really hard about it, and I have a few reasons.
When I came back on the straight and narrow road, I finally found the happiness I had left to find in the first place. I want others to feel that same happiness. Anyone who knows me, knows I love helping people and what better way to help them, by service and spreading this wonderful gospel brought to us in these latter days. I know that this The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true, and that Joseph Smith was chosen to bring back the the priesthood and the fullness of this gospel. I know that while on this mission I will have protection and that as long as I listen to what Heavenly Father wants me to do, no harm can come to me no matter how hard anyone tries. This is my testimony, and I bare it in the Name of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Redeemer, Amen. --Elder Don Sharp, Jr.
