What was a funny experience?
- One of the new members always had crazy stories about his week to tell. (Stephanie)
- Every day there was something. We helped castrate, brand, and tag cows. It was funny because it was foreign to my companion and I but we just went with it. (Kylie)
What was a crazy experience?
- A giant dog coming out of nowhere barking and running at my companion and I in the car. (Stephanie)
- I got bit badly by a dog that I was trying to help. I can’t blame him but man that hurt bad and it got infected. I had to get 2 shots and a good scolding from the doctor but lots of love from my sister president. (Kylie)
- Got the Mission President to dress up in cowboy gear for a cattle branding party. (Mikayla)
What was a spiritual experience?
- Seeing people accept the gospel and get baptized. (Stephanie)
- Every day had something. It was amazing to be on a mission and experience the closeness to the Savior. The first time I really felt the true love of Christ was in my first area and we were “practicing” the lessons on a less active to help me get the flow of it as a new missionary. In about the third lesson, I was so overcome with love for this woman I couldn’t think of anything else. I felt so warm and so much love toward her and from that moment on I could more easily tap into that love and it has touched me forever and has changed me. (Kylie)
- Finding out the weekend before I went home at an investigator’s baptism that my sister started teaching her a couple years prior during her mission in Washington. (Mikayla)
What are some interesting facts about the Nampa Mission?
- I don’t really know many I was sent home early for medical reasons. But the people of the Nampa Idaho mission have to be the best members around. (Stephanie)
- Our region put out the most onions in America. (Kylie)
- Almost all missionaries live in member’s homes. You won’t always have a grocery store in your area. (Mikayla)
What was the weather like?
- Warm in spring and cold in the winter. (Stephanie)
- Warm in the summer and freezing and icy in the winter. (Kylie)
- Hottest was about 85. Don’t know how cold it really was…we were always in a car. Not too much snow, but enough to stay on the ground. (Mikayla)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- The member were amazing and so was the Mission President. (Stephanie)
- Most of my areas were farmers and they are the greatest and most humble people alive. (Kylie)
- Even the people that weren’t interested were usually super nice. It was the angry less-actives hiding from the church that weren’t nice. (Mikayla)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- Pack clothong for both the cold and the warmth. (Stephanie)
- Don’t bring too much. Layer when cold because people keep their houses very warm in the winter. Don’t bring sheets or anything because they have plenty. (Kylie)
- Wool socks. Jeans for service. Waterproof boots for weather and service projects. (Mikayla)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- I received so many in the short amount of time I was out. (Stephanie)
- Neither of my brothers were active for a long time, I prayed every day that my service would affect them. A year after I got home, my brother and his wife went through the temple and were sealed as a family. Just 2 weeks ago that brother baptized his oldest. He told me once that my example was a big reason he decided to come back. Thank the heavens. (Kylie)
- Refinement. I grew so much. Which got me my husband. He never would have liked who I was before- maturity made all the difference. (Mikayla)
What are some skills you gained?
- The most important is confidence. (Stephanie)
- Being able to talk to anyone and find common group. Every job I have that’s one of the biggest things I’m complimented on and I wouldn’t be like without a mission. (Kylie)
- Branding and tagging cattle. Loving someone you hate. Teaching. (Mikayla)
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
- I wish I had studied preach my gospel. (Stephanie)
- READ THE BOOK OF MORMON AT LEAST ONCE. I grew up semi-active and had never read it and I felt like I was a failure who was super behind. Also, obedience is better than anything you may think of doing. Don’t be a robot, be who you are. People can see right through you if you’re not genuine and won’t want to hear what you have to say if they sense it. (Kylie)
- People are different and it’s okay that they’re at a different place than you. (Mikayla)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Nampa?
- Don’t doubt yourself and study the scriptures and Preach My Gospel. (Stephanie)
- You’re sent there for a purpose, find it. (Kylie)
- Be prepared to be outside doing service every day. Just be obedient. If you don’t know why you’re on a mission, figure it out or don’t go. Pressure from family and everyone else to serve is not a good enough reason to be there hating the whole experience and being a bad name for the church. (Mikayla)
What was a funny language mistake?
- Hahaha Idaho people say “Boy-c” for Boise. Don’t get that wrong. (Kylie)
