Dear Sister Keenan

“Dear Sister Keenan: 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 PORTUGAL PORTO Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months. You should report to the Provo MTC on Feb. 17,2016. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Portuguese language.

You have been recommended as one worthy to represent the Lord as a minister of the restored gospel. You will be an official representative of the Church. As such, you will be expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct and appearance by keeping the commandments, living mission rules, and following the counsel of your mission president. As you devote your time and attention to serving the Lord, leaving behind all other personal affairs, the Lord will bless you with increased knowledge and testimony of the Restoration and truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Your purpose will be to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. As you serve with all your heart, might, and strength, the Lord will lead you to those who are prepared to be baptized.

The Lord will reward you for the goodness of your life. Greater blessings and more happiness than you have yet experienced await you as you humbly and prayerfully serve the Lord in this labor of love among His children. We place our confidence in you and pray that the Lord will help you become an effective missionary.

So grateful I had these amazing sisters of mine there to support me


I cannot even begin to express my excitement to serve the people of Porto, Portugal for 18 months as a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that if it weren’t for my Savior Jesus Christ there would be no message to bring and ultimately no purpose in this life. He is the only way we can find true joy. He is the perfect example. Because of Him, we can start again. I am so grateful for His sacrifice for me and for the unconditional love He has for each one of us. I cannot wait to share this gift that has blessed my life immensely with the people of Portugal.
