Helpful Articles about Indiana
Indianapolis Missionary Survey
Here are survey responses from Indiana Indianapolis RMs, to give you a snapshot into what it’s like to live in the mission.
When did you serve?
- 2011-2013 (Danny)
What was a favorite food?
- Good bread with good butter and good chicken with good rice. (Danny)
What was a funny experience?
- People had pet raccoons. (Danny)
What was a dangerous experience?
- I rode my bike…in heavy traffic. I knocked doors in the ghetto and in rich/wealthy areas. I can’t decide which was more scary. (Danny)
What was a spiritual experience?
- I was able to share the Gospel with Agnes and her family. I saw her low countenance turn into a countenance of Christ overnight. I saw light enter her life. (Danny)
What are some cool facts about the Indianapolis Mission?
- The first area I served in was a KKK stronghold until recently. The town had a sign that said, “Huntington Indiana, where the sun don’t set on Negroes.” That was a few years ago. Huntington was also home to Dan Quayle. (Danny)
What was the weather like in Indianapolis Mission?
- 110 degrees in the summer and minus 25 in the winter. At its worst though. (Danny)
Any thing you really like about Indiana?
- HOOSIERS. Friendly people and beautiful trees! (Danny)
What do you love most about the people/culture in Indiana?
- Indianapolis was very diverse and integrated. Especially on the west side. People were full of love and were very Christian. (Danny)
Any packing advice?
- I wish I brought a Rolex watch. I had to buy like seven watches on my mission. I also wish I brought some all-leather, brown and black pairs of Sperry top-sider shoes. You would have to walk 10,000 miles before those shoes would tear. I didn’t need to bring an iron and swag. (Danny)
Anything you can’t buy/find easily there?
- You can buy anything. (Danny)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- Spiritual, emotional, and educational blessings. (Danny)
Is there anything you wish you knew at the beginning of your mission?
- Humility, CHARITY (most important), and hope. If you figure charity out and are blessed with the gift of charity, then you will succeed. (Danny)
Any advice for pre-missionaries going to Indianapolis?
- I wish I had come to live in Utah for a year before my mission. There were a lot of cultural things I didn’t understand about my early companion because I didn’t know anything about Utah. Read the Book of Mormon. Study and know what being Christ-like is. (Danny)
