Arizona Gilbert Missionary Survey
Here are survey responses from Arizona Gilbert RMs, to give you a snapshot into what it’s like to live in the mission.
When did you serve?
- 2014-2016. (Jacob)
What areas did you serve in?
- Different parts of Gilbert, then in East Mesa. (Jacob)
What were some favorite foods?
What was a funny experience?
What was a crazy experience?
- I’ve taught lessons in some…interesting places. From drug houses to the side of busy roads. Our mission wasn’t particularly dangerous, but we had our fair share of crazy situations. I don’t know if I could choose one specifically, because all these experiences are to me sacred in their own right. It made me feel like I was really a representative of Jesus Christ– I was willing to go anywhere He would and talk to anyone He would. (Jacob)
What was a spiritual experience?
What are some interesting facts about the Gilbert Mission?
- It is one of the smallest in The Church (by geography) and one can drive from end to end in about an hour or so). Weather can be interesting at times; Frequent dust storms in monsoon season followed closely by sudden downpours for 6-8 minutes then back to sunny skies. And of course, very hot in the summers. It got up to 122 one July. (Jacob)
What was the weather like?
- Hot. Very hot. (Jacob)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- If you want to get an idea of how a Missionary feels towards the people they met and served on their mission, read Alma 27:4. That’s honestly the only way I know of to describe how I feel about the wonderful people I have come to love from my mission. (Jacob)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- Pack light– it makes transfers a lot easier. (Jacob)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
What are some skills you gained?
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Gilbert?
- Honestly the best advice I can give anyone preparing to serve a mission is this: have a powerful and impactful experience with the Atonement. I know of no other way to serve a mission and testify of the Savior with the conviction we need to other than by getting to know the Savior. And there is no better way to get to know Him than by using the miraculous gift we’ve been given. (Jacob)
What was a funny language mistake?
- I took a new Elder out on exchanges once and we came across a Spanish-speaking family while Tracting. While we talked, we saw a sign on the wall inside that said ‘happy birthday’. We asked whose birthday it was and a little boy, maybe six years old, came forward. My comp wanted to wish him a happy birthday but instead of saying ‘Feliz cumpliaños’, he said ‘Feliz Navidad’. This was in July, and the little boy was thoroughly confused why a gringo was on his porch wishing him a merry Christmas in July on his birthday. As we left the house, I asked my comp if he realized what he said. All at once, he realized what he said and was pretty embarrassed, but it all worked out since we were in my area, so he never saw them again. (Jacob)
