The purpose of this slide show is two-fold. First, I wish to demonstrate the great racial diversity within the Church by showing members of different racial backgrounds. Second, I want to highlight some of the people I've met on my several trips down to Brazil, both as a missionary and as a tourist. It's a beautiful country full of beautiful people! Hope you enjoy!
One should not judge this Brazilian beauty and faithful member of the Church too harshly. Normally she is impeccably fashionable. I took this picture after arriving at her house unannounced and so did not give her time to do her hair, put on makeup, and choose trendy clothing. There is no reason this fashion queen, who I later married, should make her poor husband sleep on the couch for putting this terrible picture of her on the internet!
