Mission Call

Tyler received his mission call on February 22, 2013.  He called up everyone he knew and invited over 1,000 people on facebook (just a little overboard..) to come to his house to see him open up his call!  Everyone took bets on where they thought he would be serving for the next 2 years.

With much anticipation, he began reading "Dear Elder Tyler Richard Welch..."

"you are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  You are assigned to labor in the Brazil Campinas mission."

Tyler will be serving for a period of 24 months and reports to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah on July 17, 2013 because he does not have his visa yet to go to the Brazil MTC.  He will learn how to speak Portuguese as well as how to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ for 6 weeks until he is sent out in the field in Brazil!  Tyler has prepared to serve a mission his whole life, and cannot wait to get started.

If you are interested in hearing about Tyler's experiences on his mission, feel free to follow this blog as his family will post updates from him as they receive them!
