A Mormon missionary from Cache County was badly injured when he was struck by a bus last week in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

His parents have flown to Brazil to meet with doctors, who performed emergency neurosurgery to relieve swelling in Schenk’s brain.

"Our prayers are with him, his family and friends," the statement reads.
