The last of my brothers has his mission call (for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) and with it, I’m losing my lifting buddy on July 1st when James reports to the MTC. Instead of just telling you where he’s going, try and guess. We’ll make it a game, shall we? I’ll give you some clues:
He’s not going to any of the missions the other brothers went to, or even the same continent. (Mick went to Santiago, Chile, Jarv to Budapest, Hungary, Pete to Quezon City, Philippines, and Thane to Seoul, Korea.)
He’s not going to Reno, like Maren had initially told Martha who tried to be nice about it for a few hours.
He’s not even going stateside.
He’s not going to the same mission (or same continent) that the “adopted” brother who is really my ex-step-cousin Chris went to: Mozambique Maputo.
He’s not going to Antarctica.
He’ll be serving in a city with over two million residents.
He won’t be speaking English.
He’ll be by beaches, but not at them or in the water (ha!).
He might get a chance to visit some of the historic buildings, which include palatial houses and churches built after an architectural style of the late medieval period.
The first Cathedral on this continent was built in this city.
The first castle on this continent was built in this city.
In 1844, their national hero helped this country gain their independence from their neighbor rulers.
The country has an estimated 2 million internet users.
Columbus’s younger brother founded the city.
That should have pretty much given you plenty of information. Where’s he going? Post your guess in the comments. Unless you already know… then guess something totally wrong, just to throw people off.
