A Letter from President Lima

Elder Baldwin

We are being testimonies at this time of marvelous prophecies being fulfilled in front of our eyes. In section 88, verse 73 the Lord said: “Behold, I will hasten my work in its time”. With the announcement of the reduction in  age for our young men and women to serve made by our Prophet, President Monson,  last October, a wave of rectitude and righteousness is spreading around the world and with it the creation of 54 new missions. We, are extremely happy for the division of the Brasil Rio de Janeiro Mission and with the creation of the Juiz de Fora Mission, because we are certain that in this side of the vineyard the Lord´s Kingdom will grow like never before.

And as if that wasn´t enough, in April 2013 General Conference, our beloved Prophet announced the construction of our long  awaited Rio de Janeiro temple. These are marvelous blessings that we can now look  forward to and see the whole impact in the edification of God´s kingdom.

Please accept my deepest and sincere gratitude for being part of bringing all these blessings to us. You are one of those described in Section 138 of Doctrine and Covenants (verses 53-56) as choice spirits who were reserved to come forth in the fullness of times to take part in laying the foundations of the great latter-day work, including building temples.

It is with this faith that I announce to you that from  July 1,  2013, you will start to serve the Lord as a full part time missionary in the Juiz de Fora Mission, chosen and called to be a pioneer in this new Mission.

The address for the mailing of the Juiz de Fora Mission is: Av. Barão do Rio Branco, 3053, Ed. Blue Tower - 9º Andar-Salas 901 e 902, CEP 36013-311 - Juiz de Fora – MG – Brasil. You may start addressing your mail from July 1, 2013 to the new address.

My prayer and faith is that you will continue to be faithful and diligent in the fulfillment of your purpose as a missionary and for doing so, will receive the greatest blessings reserved by our kind and loving Heavenly Father.
With Love,

President and Sister Lima
