Called To Serve

The purpose of this blog is to share the experiences of our son on his mission and hopefully to share his and our testimony of Jesus Christ. Jared Shakespaere was called to serve as a representative of Jesus Christ. On December 17, 2014. He will be serving in the Brazil Florianopolis Mission for 2 years. The first 7 weeks will be spent in the Provo Utah Mission Training Center. There he will be learning the Portuguese language and the discussions or lessons that he will teach others. He has only been out a week, but he is learning so much already. We were able to talk to him on Christmas Day, which as a mom I was so excited.

Spiritual Experience: My companion (as a missionary there are always pairs of two together) and I taught an investigator today. At first, things didn't go well, but then i talked to him about our common interest, basketball, football, sports in general. Then we shared Moroni's Promise (Moroni 10:3-5) in the Book of Mormon, and then I shared my testimony of faith and how our Heavenly Father will always answer our prayers if we ask. I then asked if he would exercise his faith and be baptized. He said yes! Wow the power of the Holy Ghost is real.
