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

When did you serve?

  • 1996-1998 (Klint)
  • 1994-1995 (J’Lene)

What areas did you serve in?

  • Hamilton, North Bay, Niagara Falls, Brantford, Windsor, Barrie. (Klint)
  • Kitchener, Orangeville, St. Catherine’s, North Bay, Bracebridge, Fort Erie and Brampton. (J’Lene)

What were some favorite foods?

  • Perogies and papusas. (Klint)
  • Fish and chips. (J’Lene)

What was a funny experience?

  • Find humor and joy in your daily grind. (Klint)
  • While serving in North Bay, we saw Santa Clause and followed him for a bit so we could get a picture with him. (J’Lene)

What was a crazy experience?

  • Driving on icy roads, having to plug your car in nightly, driving on remote highways that snow plows had not reached. (Klint)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Great experiences on a daily basis, but one can have those no matter where they serve. (Klint)
  • So many, but one was teaching a girl who was a media referral that we had followed up on. She came to the door but told us that the Peron we were looking for wasn’t home. We were prompted to leave our names and phone number, which we usually didn’t do. She called us a while later and left a message that we were her last hope. We called her back and ended up talking her out of suicide. We ended up teaching her and there was a strong spirit each time. She had not known anything about Christ before that, except that she had heard His name and was a good man who was nailed to a cross. It took a lot of time, but eventually I learned that she had gotten baptized. She wrote me a couple of letters and told me that had it not been for us, she wouldn’t be here. She also shared the gospel with several family members. I am grateful the spirit prompted us to look back at the work previous missionaries were doing and follow up with her. (J’Lene)

What are some interesting facts about the Canada Toronto West Mission?

  • If you serve in Brantford you can go proselytize on a remote country road that Joseph Smith taught on. A number of early church leaders are from the area. (Klint)
  • Even though the people there speak English and French, a lot of their words are more British words and their spelling is British English. They like to say “eh” (pronounced “a”) after nearly every sentence. They like to be acknowledged as Americans, but Canadian Americans. (J’Lene)

What was the weather like?

  • North Bay and further north hit -30 to -50 my first winter with the polar vortex. Second winter I was in Windsor, and with El Niño, it was very mild. Hot, muggy summers. Beautiful four seasons. Always had the “lake effect”. (Klint)
  • Hit on the summers from humidity off the Great Lakes. Cold in the winter from humidity. It was about 100 degrees Fahrenheit when I came in August and -30 the winter I was there. (J’Lene)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • Large diversity. Blue collar areas in the industrial cities, farmers in the more rural areas. The area is a literal cultural melting pot. In some areas I carried a Book of Mormon in eight different languages and could introduce myself in all of them. Large pockets of Italian, Polish and Latin American communities. (Klint)
  • Loved it. So beautiful. Lots of lakes. Wonderful people. The members are faithful- strong testimonies, loving, and very helpful to the missionaries (going on exchanges, providing dinners, friending investigators and new converts, etc.). (J’Lene)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Wear layers in the winter. Nylon socks covered by wool socks. Multiple layers under your pants (may need larger pants). Get boots rated to -70 and a gortex jacket. I bought my jacket in Canada. It was an Eddie Bauer jacket with a lifetime warranty. I still have it 20 years later and it’s in great shape. (Klint)
  • Lots of warm clothes and shoes/boots for the winter. Layer up a lot. Heavy duty long lasting clothing is good to have. Get really good comfortable walking shoes. Don’t take more than you need…during transfers if you have to take a bus or train, a lot of luggage can be challenging. (J’Lene)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • A love for the gospel and my Savior. Numerous friends. (Klint)
  • I’ve been home for over 20 years and think about the mission almost daily in some way. I gained a stronger testimony and love of serving others. I have many great friends and a “family” there in those wonderful people I met as well as companions. I also came out of my shell a lot (shyness). (J’Lene)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Time management, setting and achieving goals, interpersonal relationships. (Klint)
  • How to speak to people and how to start conversations with people I didn’t know. How to talk about my feelings rather than internalize them. How to love people immediately. (J’Lene)

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

  • I wish I knew how to cook better when I first came out; including recipes, planning, and maintaining a grocery budget. (Klint)
  • Been less afraid to share my testimony and speak up more. 100% obedience. It isn’t easy. It is very hard, but worth it. (J’Lene)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Canada Toronto West?

  • Work hard, be personable, and love those you serve. (Klint)
  • Be 100% obedient. Love those you serve and your companions. Be unified as companions. Seek the spirit for guidance in all you do. Be willing to and follow the promptings of the spirit even if it doesn’t make sense at the time. Just be prepared to know that not everyone is going to accept the message you bring. There will be tough times as well as many good times. Remember who you are serving and that the Savior was also rejected by some people, but it didn’t stop Him and shouldn’t stop you. (J’Lene)
