What was a crazy experience?

  • September 11 2001 we were being transferred to Wrights-town (right across the street from McGuire/ Fort Dix. we got a call saying that the twin towers were hit! the Ward mission leader from what I remember was suppose to fly flight 93 out of New Wark NJ and he was called in by the AF to fly early that morning! then during that same transfer. we were tracting along side the base and we heard gun shots, http://www.nytimes.com/2001/10/13/nyregion/a-reservist-at-fort-dix-shoots-4-before-being-killed-by-police.html the people where we were tracting told us to get in and get cover. we continued to tract. I have several more crazy close call experiences. (Daniel)
  • Anything involving Camden. (Kevin)
  • It was P-day and we were playing basketball. I was on defense, got right up on Elder Rutter, he was underneath the basket and he went up and he got me on his way up under the mouth and I bit my tongue. Oh it wasn’t a little bit- it was it was the whole thing. I was going to give my talk at the baptism in two days. It was the beginning of sacrament meeting and I could feel it coming down- I was overjoyed! It went off without a hitch. (Bryon)
  • Lots… Guns, knifes and lots of drugs in the ghettos. Fortunately, we were kept safe from harm. (John Ryan)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • We fasted to find people and the next day we found a family and baptized three of them over the next month. (Daniel)
  • Every day. (Kevin)
  • Seeing an investigator come to know who God is and praying for the first time ever. (Angela)
  • It was on the Baptism that I remember best- me and Elder Croft were teaching Joyce R. her first lesson. She knew it all along and we knew it as well that she had the spirit within her and she bore witness of The Book of Mormon, of the Godhead and Joseph Smith. (Bryon)
  • One Christmas we ran out of food, and prayed for help finding some. After serving in a soup kitchen, we were offered more food then we could take home! (John Ryan)

What are some interesting facts about the Cherry Hill Mission?

  • At the time it was an Average of 1 baptism per missionary per year. there was 10000 members and 2 stakes in our mission! (Daniel)
  • Much more rural than you might think. (Kevin)
  • It was only two Stakes at the time. It only took about 45 minutes to an hour to travel from one end the mission to the other. Heavily Jewish population. Many of the people are from different countries, so its like serving a foreign mission stateside. (Angela)
  • There were a lot of trees, so many trees you were wondering where are all these people. We were down in South Jersey where the population is more spread out than up North. (Bryon)
  • The church has been in NJ for a long time. There are also many famous celebrities living in our mission… John Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, and many others. The Short Hills ward is the most wealthy in the church. (John Ryan)

What was the weather like?

  • Very hot and muggy in the summer very humid and freezing in the winter especially on bikes! Autumn was breath taking with the leaves changing colors. (Daniel)
  • Extreme hot or extreme cold 9 out of 12 months. Perfect the other 3 months. (Kevin)
  • Hot and humid summers and cold and humid winters. (Angela)
  • It was almost like here except the air was a higher % humidity. (Bryon)
  • Very humid… Year round. Lots of rain, and some snow in the winter. Beautiful sunrises on the ocean! (John Ryan)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • The people were amazing and very out spoken. I loved getting to know about other countries, cultures and religions. (Angela)
  • The people I served were some of the nicest people I could have been around. (Bryon)
  • The people in the ghettos are very humble. Most people we met were willing to listen to our message. (John Ryan)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Cold winter layers water shedding garments for the summer. we change twice a day in the summer! (Daniel)
  • Dress warm, winters are brutal. (Kevin)
  • Cotton will be your best friend. Light weight cotton for summer. Winter layers are best. Thermals, tights, scarf, gloves, hat and boots. (Angela)
  • I only have two advice’s for people serving in the mission when it tells you to only take the shoes, I would recommend your boots with at least a 200 grams Gore-Tex liner. If you will be riding your bike I wouldn’t wear your button all the way down. Coat- I would bring your coat from home or find one out there. (Bryon)
  • Take extra white shirts and shoes. (John Ryan)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • The Spirit of Discernment, an amazing wife and kids. I was a part of 21+ baptism. truly understanding the importance of fasting. Prayer works. The scriptures have become my guide! Great friends! (Daniel)
  • Stronger relationship with my Father in Heaven. Better understanding of myself as a daughter of God. (Angela)
  • I received blessings that are too much to contain. I love everyone I come in contact with! Everyone of them whether they let me in or not, I loved my companions and I loved the ward members. I loved everyone in my mission! (Bryon)
  • It’s impossible to calculate. Since returning home I married my beautiful wife and have 6 wonderful children. I also have lifelong mission friends, companions and people who we taught that are still a part of my life. My testimony of Jesus Christ and of the plan of salvation was dramatically increased during my mission. (John Ryan)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Talking to people, following the spirit and understanding the scriptures. Wheelies. (Daniel)
  • People skills, organization. Communication. (Kevin)
  • Better study skills. Communication skills, people skills and organization skills. (Angela)
  • I gained a lot of good skills on my mission. One of the best was the part of my mission where I gained a skill from Elder Bush. He was one who you could be yourself around and he taught me how to be yourself around members and I was able to do that. (Bryon)
  • Speaking, teaching, time management, studying, and getting along with others. (John Ryan)

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

  • How to win Friends and influence people. I wish I had read this book! (Daniel)
  • Better knowledge of the scriptures, especially the Bible. (Kevin)
  • Didn’t worry about the little things and focused more on the people. (Angela)
  • I would have went out with a major testimony of The Book of Mormon. (Bryon)
  • I wish I knew that a mission would be a difficult experience, but a very rewarding experience. I would have studied my scriptures more and prayed more sincerely. (John Ryan)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to New Jersey Cherry Hill?

  • Never bash, if you’re wrong promptly admit it to your companion or to whom you were wrong with. Read How to win Friends and Influence People. Have a testimony of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith Jr, of living prophets and of the Savior Jesus Christ and his ability to forgive and heal people! (Daniel)
  • Love like crazy and the people will respond. Jersey folk can come across as rough, but they are the most lovable people. You only get 18-24 month. Take advantage of every moment cause it will go by in a flash. (Angela)
  • Yeah have fun within the rules. You don’t know how much fun you can have with just going out and tracting within the rules. (Bryon)
  • Do everything you can to be prepared to serve a mission. You should read, study and pray everyday, and try to be the best person you can be before you start your mission. This way you can hit the ground running. If you have any vices or bad habits try to resolve them before you start your mission so that you can have the Spirit with you the entire time. (John Ryan)
