California Redlands Missionary Survey

Here are survey responses from California Redlands RMs, to give you a snapshot into what it’s like to live in the mission.

*Click here to take a survey to help pre-missionaries going to your mission.

When did you serve?

  • 2015-2016 (Annakah)
  • 2013-2015 (Landon)

What areas did you serve in?

  • Palm Desert, Thousand Palms, Cathedral City, Redlands, Palm Springs, and Fontana. (Annakah)
  • Redlands, Banning, Palm Desert. (Landon)

What were some favorite foods?

  • Oranges, carne asada, “real” tacos. (Annakah)
  • Tons of great Mexican food- both authentic and Americanized. (Landon)

What was a funny experience?

  • One time, my companion and I got locked into a gated community and had to jump the fence to get out, in the rain no less! (Annakah)

What was a crazy experience?

  • We had interesting interactions with homeless people, sometimes where police had to be involved. Never anything too threatening, though. (Landon)

What was a spiritual experience?

What are some interesting facts about the Redlands Mission?

  • General Authorities sometimes visit the Palm Springs area to play golf or relax. The mission was created in 2013 and is composed of missionaries originally sent to the Riverside and San Bernardino missions. The San Bernardino area was originally settled by Mormon pioneers. (Landon)

What was the weather like?

  • Hot and dry! Temperatures in the desert (Yucca Valley and Palm Desert stakes) can get up to 120. Temperatures in the mountains (Arrowhead) can get very low. For the most part, the weather will be 70-100 degrees. (Landon)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • It’s obviously a very diverse area, with a huge demographic of people. Rich and older people in the Palm Springs area, young and more humble people the farther west you go. (Landon)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Pack lightly. A heavy coat or boots are not nessecary unless you get sent to one of the few cold areas in the winter. Otherwise, a jacket or sweater should be enough. Short sleeves are a must. (Landon)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

What are some skills you gained?

  • Communication, goal setting and planing to achieve those goals, budgeting, etc. (Annakah)
  • I’m amazed at how much I enjoy talking to strangers now that I’m back home. Getting to know people is a pleasure for me now. (Landon)

What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?

  • Yes you are a missionary, but be yourself. You have your personality for a reason, use that to your advantage in helping serve those around you. (Annakah)
  • Companions and areas may be tough, but you must persevere. The further into your mission you get, the more you’ll understand the culture of both the mission and the people you serve. (Landon)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Redlands?

  • BE OBEDIENT! (Annakah)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • As an English missionary trying to communicate with people on the street who only spoke Spanish was always difficult and funny. (Annakah)
