- 2013-2015 (James)
Which areas did you serve in?
What were some favorite foods?
- Brats. (Launie)

What was a funny experience?
- It was fun. (Launie)
- My companion and I once woke up to a woman swearing and cursing and saying anything and everything vulgar at the top of her lungs at the bus stop outside our window. (James)
What was a crazy experience?
- Going on a referral to the inner city of Milwaukee with all of the different gangs. …or the time we were tracking and was in the same complex of where Jeffery Dome lived. (Launie)
- My companion once broke up a teenage chick-fight outside our apartment with the help of a really angry black guy who kept asking the girls if they wanted to spend Christmas in jail. (James)
What was a spiritual experience?
- A baptism my very first day…not even unpacked. (Launie)
- There were several days when my personal study opened up the eyes of my understanding and I comprehended the glory of God’s plan in a better way. (James)
What are some interesting facts about the Milwaukee Mission?
- Lots of cows. (Launie)
- It’s probably one of the coldest missions in the United States. Wisconsin produces over 700,000 barrels of beer a year. The Packers are a beloved football team everywhere except Chicago. (James)
What was the weather like?
- Very humid in the summer…below 0 in the winter. (Launie)
- Humid all year round. Which means summer feels like a hot wall that you smack into as you step outside, and the winter wind cuts through more layers of your body that you thought you had. Fall is quite nice though, with very pretty trees. And spring has great weather, except the ground is super soggy. (James)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- Very nice and friendly people. ..different cultures. (Launie)
- Many of them believe in God and in doing good. (James)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- No. (Launie)
- Buy a really nice coat/jacket and waterproof shoes. (James)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- A stronger belief in what I have been taught by my parents. (Launie)
- I have a stronger testimony and a significant amount of knowledge about how the Plan of Salvation is applicable in everyday life. I also met some great examples of amazing fathers. (James)
What are some skills you gained?
- To be able to have better people skills. (Launie)
- I learned how to exercise faith when faith is the only thing that could give me a reason to do something. I also learned how to make decisions about what I would do with my life, and then follow-through with executing those decisions. (James)
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
- Just how to deal with other people. (Launie)
- I wish I was more confident in speaking with other people. People expect the missionaries to talk to them, even if they don’t want to talk. I wish I understood that I didn’t need to be afraid of talking to people. (James)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries called to Milwaukee?
- It is not about how many baptisms…it is how many seeds that are planted. (Launie)
- Learn how to work really hard (harder than you’ve ever worked on anything before) to accomplish something and still be okay when you accomplish almost nothing. (James)
What was a funny language mistake?
- When I first went to the supermarket for food, I thought they asked if I wanted to beg for my food and I told them no, I have cash… they meant do I want a bag (but the accent sounded like beg). (Launie)
- I served with a European companion, and English was his second language, and one day the toilet overflowed and he was really angry at it, and yelled “stupid poopy water” in an extremely angry voice, but the words just sounded silly to me, and I tried really hard not to laugh in front of him. (James)
