Mexico City Chalco Missionary Survey

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

When did you serve?

  • August 2013 – July 2015 (Garrett)

What were some favorite foods?

  • Milanesa de pollo (a type of breaded chicken), tacos al pastor, tacos de suadero, tortas (mexican sandwiches), mole verde, enchiladas verdes. (Garrett)

What was a funny experience?

  • On my first day in the mission we went to eat with a family. The first thing they gave us was sopa which looked white. Now, I didn’t know what sopa meant so I thought, humm maybe it means soap- I mean it looks white and it kind of looks like soap. So I was about to put my hands into it to wash them and luckily right then my companion saved me because he started to eat his. So I realized what it was actually and funny thing is that sopa actually just means soup. (Garrett)

What was a crazy/dangerous experience?

  • One Preparation Day we went to hike on a mountain (well, volcano really) to see some waterfalls. On our way down the trail, after we had already gotten to the waterfalls, two guys pulled machetes out of their backpacks and robbed us. Luckily they just took our stuff and left without hurting us. I also got lucky because I had nothing to rob that day, so I actually didn’t lose anything. (Garrett)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • On my mission my companion and I had the chance to teach a man named Juan. His wife was already a member but she had been inactive for a very long time, but she recently had started coming to church again. Their kids had already gotten baptized by the time I got into the area, but Juan was still struggling with going to church, was alcoholic, and he also wasn’t married to his wife. Helping people to overcome these challenges isn’t easy, but as Juan exercised faith in the Lord as we taught him, he made amazing changes in his life. After working with him for about four months he finally was baptized. The next time that we went to teach him after he was baptized, I was amazed by how happy he seemed because he had always been very tense and stressed out before. But now he was completely peaceful and there really seemed like there was a light about him, because he had received forgiveness for his sins and received the Holy Ghost. I know that if we live the Gospel, we can all experience that happiness. (Garrett)

What are some interesting facts about the Mexico City Chalco Mission?

  • It is one of the smallest missions in the world, geographically. Every area is a walking area so no missionary has a bike or a car. Missionaries don’t tract (go around knocking doors), instead they work with the members to get referrals and they contact people in the street. (Garrett)

What was the weather like?

  • It never gets very hot or very cold. The temperature is usually between about 50 and 75 degrees. It does rain a ton though so the streets sometimes get flooded. (Garrett)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • The people are very loving and nice. We got to eat with members every day except Preparation Days, so I got to know a lot of very nice, kind members, as well as awesome investigators. They’re respectful too and a lot of people are willing to listen to the missionaries. (Garrett)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Definitely bring an umbrella for the rain. Make sure to get shoes that can handle walking on dirt a lot, because in some areas the roads aren’t paved. (Garrett)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • The chance to see the atonement in action and see how it can truly change lives. I myself drew a lot closer to the Lord as well and I feel like I was able to become much more converted to him. I also had the chance to live in a different culture and I feel like I learned many things from that as well. I also learned Spanish which has helped me a lot. (Garrett)

What are some skills you gained?

  • I learned Spanish. I learned how to communicate well with other people, like how to listen carefully to what people say, to discern what they are feeling and what they really mean. I learned how to budget my money and how to live on my own. (Garrett)

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

  • I wish I knew that loving your companions is key to everything, even if they’re hard to get along with. I also wish I had known how hard it was actually going to be, but that the difficulties could be overcome by a lot of diligence and faith. (Garrett)

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

  • Gain a testimony for yourself before you go and prepare for your mission by truly living the Gospel now. Also, study the scriptures and Preach My Gospel, every day. Pray every morning and night, but pray sincerely and don’t just go through the motions. Go to church every Sunday. These are all the primary answers, but these simple things are so important and you’ll see that on your mission. (Garrett)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • One time another missionary thought he was asking for a napkin when he was eating but he actually asked the member for a beer accidentally, which was super hilarious. The member freaked out and was like what are your thinking Elder. It was pretty funny. (Garrett)
