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

When did you serve?

  • 2007-2009 (David)

What areas did you serve in?

  • I served in Los Molinos de las Americas,Yamasa,Los Mina Viejo, Bayaguana, Los Trinitarios,Ensanche Luperon1,Los Llanos de San jose, and La Victoria. (David)

What were some favorite foods?

  • My favorite food was honestly Mondongo, Locrio, Asopao, Chimi, Empanada completa, moro, and la bandera. Zapote was my favorite fruit, fritos I love too. (David)

What was a funny experience?

  • A funny experience for me was one day I was in transfers in Gazcue and an American missionary came up to me speaking in Spanish. I answered his questions in English and he was surprised that I knew English very well. I told him that I am from the United States and he was very surprised! (David)

What was a crazy experience?

  • The most crazy and dangerous experience was that I was in a car accident caused by hydroplaning in a highway between Yamasa and la Cruce in Monte Plata District. Outside of that the other crazy experience was that in my first area, we would run across the Las Americas Highway to get a ride with the ZLs to go to zone conference. (David)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Spiritual experience for me was the day that I felt inspired to tell members of the church that I wouldn’t know my wife on the mission, but she’d be from the Dominican Republic and I wouldn’t know her during the rest of my mission. It then happened later on in the year 2011, I returned for her. (David)

What are some interesting facts about the Santo Domingo East Mission?

  • Interesting fact about my mission is that we do have most of the historical tourist sites. (David)

What was the weather like?

  • It is very warm, tropical and humid. It rains once in a while during the day normally in the afternoon. As well, when tropical storms come they make the temperatures drop which is wonderful! (David)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • I loved the people for the most part they treated me with love and had patience with me. Sure there were some that were rude, but the majority were nice and treated me with respect. (David)

Any packing/clothing advice?

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • Blessings that I received from serving a mission is able to speak Spanish, found my eternal companion, stronger testimony, greater love for my heritage, greater appreciation of sacrifice and love for other people. (David)

What are some skills you gained?

  • I gained the ability to be patient and being diligent not matter how hard the trials could be in life! (David)

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

  • I wish I knew Spanish before the mission, the reason is because I am part Latino. My dad is from Mexico, but as a child I didn’t learn Spanish. So when I went on my mission, the Dominican people thought I knew it fluently because of my last name. When they realized that I didn’t know it very well, they made fun of me and were not that patient with me. The treatment that I got from the members and non members alike. It motivated me to continue practicing my Spanish to the point that they couldn’t say that I didn’t know it. (David)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Santo Domingo East?

  • I would tell you be patient, get to know the culture. The Dominican people, generally speaking are friendly. They want you to get to know their culture and history, so that you will be able to appreciate them even more. As well, don’t be a picky eater. On the other hand, try the food first especially when they invite you to their houses to eat. Most of the members of the church who invite you to their houses are poor. And it would be rude if you won’t try their food. (David)

What was a funny language mistake?
