Welcome to Elder Hirschi's new blog! Although this picture was taken at the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita Kansas, Jake will be leaving early tomorrow morning for his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Manaus, Brazil. He will spend six weeks in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, learning the Portuguese language. He will then head out to Brazil to begin his mission, provided he will receive his visa by that time. If not, he will begin serving in another stateside location as he waits for it. As his mom, I have promised to do my best to keep up with his blog (which is my first!). The plan is to keep everyone updated on his adventures in Brazil. Look forward to his emails and hopefully pictures which we will post as we get them! We love you Jake, and we are excited to share this journey with you!
