Jesse (Brazil Vitoria Mission)
–Paraphrased from Jesse’s mission interview–
The boundaries encompass most of the state of Espiritu Santo. The church in Vitoria was really small at first but has spread out a lot. The first church building there where they started was really nice. They don’t have a temple yet, but Rio is close enough to travel to. Brazil has a lot of hills. You have to get used to that and the humidity.
They all speak Portuguese, but they have differing accents. They refer to each other as the state they are from and they have nicknames for each one. I’ve heard missionary companions compare the mission to the Southern United States because they have that feel.
