  • Seeing my companion running back to the apartments trying to make it to the toilets, due to a stomach ache. But upon his arrival, the gate was closed and the other companionship had the only gate key. My poor companion really needing to go, attempted to climb the fence and stopped at the top of the fence, knowing that it was too late… this happened midday when everybody was around, seeing that we were on a busy street. (Clark)
  • When I was trying to quote a scripture from 1 Nephi 3:7 instead of saying “I will go and do” I mixed up my Tagalog words and said “I am an animal and I will do”. The family we were teaching laughed at me but I continued to repeat the scripture 3 more times after that until they finally made me stop because they couldn’t stop laughing. (Jayden)

As we got to our next appointment I wanted to share a scripture and saw that my bag was still very wet, but my scriptures which were in a case cover made from a cereal box ( yes a cereal box) was still dry and not damaged at all… (Clark)
  • Well I was in my mission during 2 of the worst cyclones for a couple years so the wreckage caused by those was pretty crazy. Helping people put their roofs back on and living for 3 weeks without electricity was pretty crazy too. (Jayden)
  • When a drunk man tries to Bible bash with us and wanted us to spend time just talking with him. So we just made an effort so he won’t feel bad but he never understand us. (Madilene)

  • Casting out an evil spirit from a young teenage girl whose parents never spoke to the missionaries and spoke down to the church. Then seeing the power of the Priesthood, it showed them the power of God and that we weren’t bad guys after all. (Clark)
  • Literally every day being able to find and teach someone new, especially when you got punted at all your planned appointments and the lord guides you to someone else who really needs to hear your message. (Jayden)
  • When my companion and I ask for an answer with our prayer and instantly we got the answer. It was amazing. (Madilene)

  • If you’re a missionary…wear mesh garments…they let you breathe better, bring light clothes, don’t bother with coats or jackets you will never need them. (Jayden)
  • Just bring what is told in the guide book. (Madilene)

  • Learned a second language. Gained new family in my life. Experienced a lot of different life experiences. Learned to stand on my own two feet without my parents. (Clark)
  • Literally too many to count but a new language, lifelong friends, helped others receive the gospel, new life skills like how to plan and cook, learned to be independent, be social with others and some of the principles you use as a companionship are still essential with my girlfriend eg inventory to communicate how we feel in our relationship. However, these are mainly temporal blessings, I also now have a firm and unshakable testimony which continues to grow every day and can feel the spirit guiding my life much better than ever. (Jayden)
  • Spiritual and temporal blessings like: I am able to serve as a Young Women President in my ward and have my small business at the same time. (Madilene)

  • I wish I had a skinnier body so there’d be less stress on my knees and ankles. (Clark)
  • How to cook, I wish I read my scriptures more and had a better understanding of the missionary lessons. It would have made learning the language and teaching so much easier. (Jayden)
  • To show more of how I can help and to not be afraid of anything because as long as the Lord is with you, nothing is impossible. (Madilene)
  • I wouldn’t change a thing. (Cody)

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

  • Don’t focus on the numbers of people you are baptizing or converting. Remember you can go home with just one convert- You! And be an exactly obedient missionary. (Oddy)
  • Love your companion in all your areas. Know everything about him, even though you may not agree or get along, get over it. Love him and work together. The miracles in your areas only work when there is harmony and happiness in your companionship. (Clark)
  • Do it and you won’t regret it. You’ll find great happiness is serving others and ultimately the Lord. (Jayden)
  • Just always speak from the heart. Always pray and read the scriptures. Be humble. Be patient and be full of charity. Obey with exactness. (Madilene)
  • Listen. Learn the way Filipinos pronounce words, syllables, etc. learn as many words as possible. Mimic the way they sound. The more you sound like them, the easier the Spirit can influence what to say. (Cody)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • My first companion was American and he thought that the word “bakla,” which means “gay,” was handsome, so he told one of our investigators. Hey, you’re so bakla! hahaha (Oddy)
  • Telling a female investigator not to worry if she has no friends- that I’m her friend for sure- but the way I pronounced friend in Tagalog meant boyfriend, so she took it seriously and wanted this to go to the next level of marriage and I thought to myself, did I say the right thing?? (Clark)
  • Don’t get the word for snails messed up…Awkward…I tried to say nanay these snails taste good…failed miserably. Look it up if your really want to know. (Jayden)
  • Instead of saying” mahal kita” my companion told one of our less active sisters the word “mahal ko ka” that made us all laughed. (Madilene)
