ALAMOSA — Landon Bechaver, Alamosa, has been called to serve in the Piura, Peru Mission, South America. Bechaver is a recent graduate from Centauri High School and the son of Brian and Leslie Bechaver. He will serve a two-year Spanish speaking mission and will report to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) located in Peru on June 13.
Bechaver has been planning on serving a mission since he was a young boy attending Primary classes. To prepare, he has studied the gospel all his life and has been saving his money to pay for the things he needs for the two years he will be gone. He wants to serve others and teach them about Jesus Christ.
He is also good with his hands and skilled in building trades and welding. To earn his Eagle Scout badge, he planned and organized the rebuilding of a water catchment on Mr. Greenie for the wildlife. He hopes these skills will benefit the people he serves as well. He is excited about this opportunity to serve and wants to learn from the people of Peru and about their way of life.
