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

When did you serve?

  • 2013-2015 (Brenen)

What areas did you serve in?

  • Saltillo, Castanos, Allende, Nueva Rosita, Zaragoza, Frontera. (Brenen)

What were some favorite foods?

  • Tamales and gringas. (Brenen)

What was a funny experience?

  • There was a man (he might have been drunk) who called me first an alien, then an angel, and then he gave me a magical rock. (Brenen)

What was a crazy experience?

  • There are many stray dogs everywhere and you have to learn to face them or they many will come after you. (Brenen)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • It was my last month in the mission and I was training a new missionary. We had not had any baptisms through his training and I only had about two weeks before I went home and his training would be done. We had worked incredibly hard, hardly stopping for rests and running to appointments for all three months of the trainee’s training. We were in a ward called Castanos and we were having a ward activity when a pair of girls- about 12 came up to us and explained that they were from a less active family, but had never been baptized and very much wanted too. I had never had a person just come up to me and ask to be baptized ever before, I never thought I would, especially after the two years of my mission was almost up, but here was one more miracle to add to my journal. We worked with the family and they all started to get active in The Church again. The girls were baptized two weeks after I returned home and the family is now very active and thriving in The Church. (Brenen)

What are some interesting facts about the Saltillo Mission?

  • Monclova can get up to 120 degrees. (Brenen)

What was the weather like?

  • Very hot in the summer and very bipolar in the winter. (Brenen)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • They are very nice and willing to share with the missionaries. (Brenen)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Bring a small jacket that is waterproof- there is lots of rain at certain times in the winter and summer. Nothing too big though, you can always buy clothes cheaper there, if it isn’t too fancy. (Brenen)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • I learned Spanish which serves me very well now that I’m home and I have many, many friends in Mexico. (Brenen)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Spanish, talking (in Spanish because my English got destroyed), learning to love others more. (Brenen)

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

  • Spanish and to value my time more, and trust in the Lord with everything. (Brenen)

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

  • Know that the Lord loves you and he loves the people you are going to serve, he expects all you can give of heart, might, and mind. He does not want lazy missionaries. The people in Mexico need and deserve good-hearted and hardworking missionaries, even if they don’t always receive us. The people who support you at home will expect great effort from their missionaries, don’t let them down. Effort does not mean baptisms, it means trying to serve the Lord even if it is hard and bears little fruits in the present. I know the mission is something incredibly sacred, and should be treated as such. I know this is how God trains us for our futures, and I know this is how He expresses His love in giving us challenges such as this. (Brenen)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • One missionary that I trained mistook the word castigar (to punish) for the word castrar (to castrate). (Brenen)
