Elder Mervyn B. Arnold


"Yesterday we had Zone Conference with Elder Mervyn B. Arnold of the Seventy. He was mission president in Chile a few years back, now President of the Brazil South Area. So he was speaking a mix of Spanish, Portuguese and English to us. But man, that guy lives for missionary work. I learned so much from his training."

    • He was the mission president in Costa Rica and Panama, I know because he was my mission president.

    • Mathew 25:35,40 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink...And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
      Elder Arnold, please know that He will remember all that you did in Panama and Costa Rica.
