Mexico Queretaro Missionary Survey

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

When did you serve?

  • 2013-2015 (Greg)
  • 1990-1992 (Shane)
  • 1989-1991 (Carlos)

What areas did you serve in?

  • San Juan del Rio, Querétaro, Celaya, La Piedad, Irapuato, Leon, Lagos de Moreno, San Luis Potosi. (Carlos)

What were some favorite foods?

  • Tacos, tortas, pazole, quesdillas, carnitas. (Greg)
  • Pozole, mole, y huevos con chorizo. (Shane)

What was a funny experience?

  • Being knee-deep in the rain, and watching the whole city flood. And still being able to give a smile to those around you, even in a horrible day of weather. (Greg)
  • Being a new missionary to Mexico and new to Spanish, I was trying to explain that I was embarrassed about a situation. Unfortunately, the word for embarrassed is NOT embarazada. That means pregnant. It became a running joke with the family for the next 3 to 4 months. 🙂 (Shane)

What was a crazy/dangerous experience?

  • Falling asleep on a bus, and being taken to another city without knowing it. We got off on the next stop, without realizing that we were way far away. After finding out where we were…We were in the most dangerous part of the mission. But luckily we found people that knew the missionaries and helped us get a ride back to our area. (Greg)
  • We were riding our bikes down a narrow cobbled street. The cars and buses were nearly scraping our handlebars as they drove past us. We had to remain on the street because the sidewalk was about 6 inches higher than the street and very close to the buildings as well. There was another bicycle in front of us, we didn’t know the person. A bus passed us and began to slow down. As it slowed, a man stepped off facing us and the bicycle in front of us. The bike’s front wheel went right between his legs as he stepped with one leg on the bus and the other on the sidewalk. It threw him to the side near the building. We jumped off to help and he ended up being okay. (Shane)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Being on the other side of the city, my companion and I were prompted to go all the way to the other side (an hour away walking) to go see a woman and her family who still weren’t sure that they were going to get baptized. We went and found her crying. She then began to tell us that she received an answer from her Heavenly Father that she and her family should get baptized. So her and her whole family- husband and kids- were baptized the next week. (Greg)
  • I interviewed a man who was to be baptized that afternoon. He asked me to be the one to baptize him. He had feet that were very swollen and it looked like his guarachis (sandals) were cutting into his skin. A couple of days later I saw him at church. He came up to us and showed us that his feet had been healed in the waters of baptism. (Shane)

What are some interesting facts about the Queretaro Mission?

  • It is the richest part of Mexico. It is a very modern place, but also has many sites and places from the period of time when the Spaniards came. It is beautiful, rains a lot and has many, many lovely people. (Greg)
  • It was almost en the geometric center of Mexico, therefore; it touched no ocean. It is a complete desert with cactus and nopales and then deep jungle in other parts. There are very fun and diverse climates. home to the Guanajuato mummies. (Shane)

What was the weather like?

  • It is rainy in the Spring, Winter and Fall, and very warm in the Summer. (Greg)
  • There was everything from desert to jungle. It is rarely below 40 degrees F. (Shane)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • They love Heavenly Father, and Christ, even if they do not agree with us about religion. They are willing to listen and want to know. The members love to share the Gospel and are always willing to accompany you to a lesson. (Greg)
  • It was a very community feeling and family was so important. There is always a reason to celebrate something. (Shane)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Pack a coat, but not one that’s too big. Bring an umbrella, and pack very lightly. The clothes there are way cheaper than here. Buy a very good pair of shoes, you will walk a lot. And you will want space in your bag, because the people will give you gifts and you will be blessed with lots of stuff. (Greg)
  • Rain gear for the rainy season. No heavy coat, just a thicker sweater. There will be lots of walking; take good shoes. (at least 20 some years ago it was that way :)). (Shane)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • A stronger relationship with my Father in Heaven. An understanding and love for the Gospel. I was able to learn how to understand and follow the Spirit, and was prepared for school afterwards (learned how to study). And I was blessed to know many wonderful people- both missionaries and non-missionaries. (Greg)
  • I speak another language that I use almost every day of my life as a teacher in a Hispanic community. I understand relationships, especially marriage, better. I am more able to fulfill callings in my ward. (Shane)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Learned Spanish, confidence, studying skills and leadership skills. (Greg)
  • Spanish, organization, and time management. (Shane)

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

  • To know that even when it’s hard, it will get better- just keep on working hard. And even though it’s hard sometimes, be obedient, and learn the why to your obedience. Don’t just do it to do it. (Greg)
  • How to work hard ALWAYS! (Shane)

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

  • Each time you get to study, it’s such a blessing- use it to the best of your ability. Always talk to everyone. Be yourself. If you joke, joke around. If you laugh, laugh a lot. The people will listen to you, if you are your self. Never be afraid of failing, because you will, but you will learn and get better little by little. Build your testimony day by day, so you have a spiritual experience every day. (Greg)
  • Make sure you have a testimony. (Shane)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • I called a man fat in Spanish without knowing it, and I also messed up on the First Vision… but it’s okay- they both got baptized! Don’t be afraid, talk and talk and talk as much as possible, even if you sound bad. If you don’t, you won’t learn! (Greg)
