Rebecca Nelson

Lima, Peru

Rebecca Nelson hails from Provo, Utah. She met her future husband in middle school, but they did not become friends until college, when he sent her a paper he had written on the role of the United States in the Algerian War. She graduated from BYU in 2009 with a degree in English linguistics, during which time she spent a summer studying Arabic in Amman, Jordan. She served a mission in Concepción, Chile, and is delighted to have the chance to return to South America this summer to work with the Area Legal Counsel for the LDS Church in Lima, Peru.
