Mexico Cancun Missionary Survey

Here are survey responses from Mexico Cancun 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?

  • 2014-2015 (Katie)
  • 2014-2015 (Whitney)

Which areas did you serve in?

What were some favorite foods?

  • Panuchos, milllanesa, frijol con puerco, espagueti verde, etc. (Katie)

What was a funny experience?

  • Well when I started the mission, I didn’t know any Spanish so I think all the mix up of words made me and the native speakers all laugh ♡. (Katie)

What was a crazy experience?

  • When I was in my 3rd area, my wallet was robbed. Thankfully, the church reimburses stolen money and stolen items when at all possible. (Katie)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • I think just working and teaching so many people every day there was a spiritual experience. (Katie)

What are some interesting facts about the Cancun Mission?

  • Most natives speak Mayan not Spanish. We can go to the ruins/archaeological sites on our prepareation days. There is no temple in our mission so we are not permitted to go for a year and a half or 2 years. (Katie)

What was the weather like?

  • Heat, heat and more heat with the occasional tropical rain storm that lasted a few hours and then it was hot again and humid! (Katie)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • Everything! The people are so loving and friendly and the area I was in was totally safe :). (Katie)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Roll your clothes and don’t buy too many trinkets and what not because then your bag will be overweight when you travel. Try to just use 1 big suitcase and a carry-on instead of two. Most of the native missionaries only are allowed 1 suitcase so it helps them know in a simple way that we are equal. (Katie)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • I strengthened my testimony and was able to be converted to the gospel. Also I have seen the blessings in my family, my mom now has a job thay pays well so she can support the family and my less active brother has started to do Family Home Evening with us and go to church once in a while. (Katie)

What are some skills you gained?

  • People Skills. Patience. Love. Painting. Laying floor. Cementing walk and drive ways. Cooking. (Katie)

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

  • I wish I had studied the lessons more before the mission. I also wish I had opened my mouth to talk with everyone. (Katie)

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

  • This mission is filled with miracles and if you are willing to be diligent, exactly obedient, and have faith, you will experience miracles both large and small every day of the mission. Honestly, the people are so prepared for this Gospel so don’t miss an opportunity to open your mouth and share what you know! (Katie)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • Estoy embarazado…this means I am pregnant when what I wanted to say was I am embarrassed…Estoy avergonzada. Jabon con huesos which means soap and bones instead of ham and cheese (jamon y queso). Puedo ver la luz en sus osos.. I can see the light in your bears instead of I can see the light in your eyes (luz en sus ojos). Honestly there are a ton more but really the people only care if you love them and they want to help you learn the language ♡. (Katie)
