We received an e-mail from the Brazil MTC President informing us that Elder Rasmussen has arrived. He has a companion and room and will be well taken care of.
Please remember Paul in your prayers as he learns Portuguese and how to be an effective missionary. We appreciate your support.
Pres. Ken Asay and Bishop John Erickson and their wives came to our home to set Paul apart. His dad, and brothers Stewart and Seth were able to join in giving the blessing. These are some men who have had a tremendous influence on Paul.
As soon as Paul received his mission call, he made arrangements to go through the temple. He received his endowment in the Provo Temple on Friday April 4, and attended as often as possible. Keeping with family tradition, he was able to go on a couple of "temple trips" with his family, as well as to the New York Manhatten, before leaving for his mission.
