Monday, July 13th, the evening before Scott left for Brazil, he went to our Stake President's home, (President Tom Owen) to get set apart as a missionary. It was a very special blessing. President Owen blessed Scott with a beautiful blessing--that he'd arrive safely in Brazil, that he'd be blessed to be able to learn the language and experience miracles in the process, that he'd be blessed with health during his mission, that he'd learn much from a wonderful first companion (his trainer) in the mission field, and that he'd know that his mission president is a man of God. He was counseled to be obedient to the mission rules and promised beautiful blessings about being an instrument in the hands of God to bless His children in Goiania, Brazil. So special!
