What was a funny experience?
- When you are knocking doors for hours in the rain. You knock on someones door and they yell come on in. So of course you walk in, and waiting for you is a group of people in the middle of a party. Obviously not who they anticipated walking through the door and you just stand there awkwardly asking if they want to learn about Jesus. The faces of those people when you turn the corner and they see you instead of one of their friends, priceless. (Cory)
- Accidentally head butting Elder Zwick of the 70. (Hans)
- A little girl was serving ice cream and the scoop flew through the air and landed on my companion’s head! (Tyler)
- Plenty of them occurred while tracking. (Brian)
- When I had a bike accident and I flew over the handle bars and when I land my skirt was over my head. Never boast of not having a bike accident, boy I got it too fold. It was so embarrassing it happened when we were riding with the Elders after church and other members traveling by car saw it too. (Leslie)
What was a crazy experience?
- Taking a train from the North of Ireland to the South of Ireland by myself with all my luggage. I thought I was going to die, get lost, or lose all my stuff. I was not used to the public transportation system! (Cory)
- A group of young boys pulled a knife on us and threatened us in limerick. (Hans)
- Riding our bikes up the limestone road dodging the police running down the street in full riot gear! (Tyler)
- Our Elders challenged us to go up Strawberry hill in Cork without getting off our bike it was pretty tough going up hill. We actually got to a point where the peddles wouldn’t move and we had to wiggle our front tire back and forth to go up hill. Well that was tough but going down the hill was pretty scary. Half way down Sister Johnson and I got off our bikes and walked down, but the Elders on the other hand they flew down the hill mind you they went through a traffic signal at top speed. It was insane they could’ve got killed. I just thought about how many times they must have done that. Elders do crazy things. In Northern Ireland I got my skirt stuck in the chain and my companion Sister Love was too far away from me so she could hear me yelling for her. A truck was coming towards me, it was the UDF military they stopped and got out and about 20 plus young men get out and got into military position. Pretty scary. They got my skirt out of my chain and took me to my companion who was now about a mile away from me. Couple of lessons in these stories, don’t travel too far away from your companion, you may want to look back and check for her if she is behind you. 2. Don’t take a ride from military guys in truck- it is against the rules. Everything worked out, lesson learned. (Leslie)
What was a spiritual experience?
- I taught a young family on the peninsula. We wanted them to come to church but that was his cycling day. He went cycling every Sunday morning, and it was his favorite things to do. We tried a lot of strategies to get him to come to church but nothing worked. Then one day I walk into sacrament meeting and there he is with his whole family. After church I’m talking to him and a few members and I was like, “What happened to cycling this morning?” He said he walked outside, saw the all the snow on the ground and said well I guess I’m not cycling today. I was like, “There was no snow this morning.” We went to talk to a member closer to his home and asked the same thing, he said there was no snow at his house. A few weeks later his whole family was baptized. (Cory)
- Steven R. Covey came to teach us. (Hans)
- Sharing our testimonies and watching it change people’s lives! (Tyler)
- Too many to count. There will be personal experiences that will touch you and allow you feel our Savior’s love for you and the people you serve. (Brian)
What are some interesting facts about the Ireland Dublin Mission?
- Ireland is two countries, and they are very different. First day in Northern Ireland I had US cash, Euro, and Pound. I had no idea which one to use to buy my groceries. (Cory)
- Steven R Covey was first mission president. (Hans)
- It’s the best kept secret in The Church! Best mission ever! (Tyler)
- Every part of the island is different in it’s own special way. (Brian)
- We gave people a questionnaire. 1. What is the purpose of life? 2. Do you believe in a supreme being? 3. Where do we go to after we die? There were a few other questions but I forgot. The people are wonderful. I have made lifelong friends. (Leslie)
What was the weather like?
- It rained a lot; warm, cold, snow, it still rained. Like a misty rain that just soaked your entire body. (Cory)
- Always changing. Never really really cold, but clouds rain sun snow all in one day. Rain showers 5 days a week. (Hans)
- RAIN! 😂😂😂 The day of summer was lovely. (Tyler)
- Sun, rain, mist, snow, ice. Not necessarily in that order. I arrived in January 93 and don’t recall seeing the sun for about three months after I arrived. Cloudy days are common. (Brian)
- Wet, cloudy and cold to the bone. (Leslie)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- The people were hilarious. They had a great sense of humor and loved to crack jokes. They loved to talk. (Cory)
- Amazing people. Down to earth. Many lovely accents. Good sense of humor. (Hans)
- Fun, real-life people! (Tyler)
- The scenery is one of the most beautiful sceneries I’ve ever seen. Especially out in the country. I loved touring the old castle ruins on our preparation days. The people are fun-loving people. They love to pull pranks and have fun with you. (Brian)
- I loved every area. Cork, Lisburn, Belfast, Baldoyle, Clonmel. (Leslie)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- Do not buy the coat they try to sell you before you leave. Wait till you get to Ireland to buy a coat. (Cory)
- Plan for wet and cold. Nice gortex coat. (Tyler)
- Gortex clothing is a must! Ecco shoes. A heavy coat isn’t necessary. It gets cold in Ireland but not cold enough to require a heavy coat. Especially since you’ll be on a bike most of the mission. (Brian)
- Long garments, buy a jacket there, thermals, scarfs. A nice Aran sweater would be great it’s a little pricey but a great investment. Nice socks wick socks. Boots like Dr. Martins or some type of hiking shoes would be good too. Plan on getting really wet. Really anything that repels water, Jackets will be jackets to the knees. A nice flowing skirt. If you are riding a bike the material will be sticking to you. Backpack but remember that will get soaked to so make sure you have zip lock bags for Book of Mormons, DON’T send a electric blanket. (Leslie)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- EVERYTHING. I owe my job, wife, family, and life experiences to my mission. There are very few days that go by that I don’t think about my mission or use a skill I learned from my mission in work, marriage, or being a father. (Cory)
- Too many to name! (Tyler)
- The greatest blessing I received from serving was a sense that I matter to my Heavenly Father. My understanding of miracles and how the influence of the Spirit will always be there when needed. (Brian)
- Lifelong experience and personal growth.It has helped me in almost every facet of my life. My family become more spiritual and started going to church. I am the only member of my family but my Sister is very active in her church and believes in doing the temple work for our ancestors. She does the genealogy and I have done the work. My Mom and Dad went to church as well but not our church but at least it sparked an interest in going backed to church. My Dad died 5 years ago and my Mother died 2 years ago. My husband and I had a great blessing of doing my parents and grandparents temple work. I have some more to do regarding sealings. I would like to be sealed to my parents. Hopefully soon. (Leslie)
What are some skills you gained?
- Work ethic, discipline, organization, love, compassion, trust, forgiveness, managing money; The list could go on forever. (Cory)

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

- The different accents spoken. 🙂 (Hans)
- To relax and have fun with the Irish people. They love fun! BE REAL! (Tyler)
- That not all missionaries are on the same level of preparedness. (Brian)
- I wish I could have seen the end result. We are often too hard on ourselves but I would say I wish I would have worked harder. But remember we are our worst critic. (Leslie)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Ireland Dublin?
- The Ireland Dublin Mission is a training ground for future leaders of the church. When you get home and talk about missions with your friends, no one will have the experiences you have on your mission! It is a special place that the Lord calls special people. Not everyone could handle the challenge that comes from serving in the Ireland Dublin Mission, but they also can’t see the blessings and love that come from serving the people there. They need you more than the baptisms may show. Love the people, love the work, and love the Lord and you will come home a better person than before you left. I would not give up one moment of my mission for anything! (Cory)
- Just go and serve! You will never regret or forget it. I now love Ireland and Northern Ireland and think of mission experiences daily. The testimony’s I’ve received through all of those experiences packed in to two years are life changing. (Hans)
- The Church is true! There will be difficult days and days filled with an great amount of joy. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows is how I would explain serving in Ireland. The people are loving and will listen even if they may not fully accept the message. I’ve heard that things have changed though, in the mission now many of the converts joining The Church aren’t native Irish. (Brian)
- Study your scripture mastery. Try to know something about Catholicism. (Leslie)
What was a funny language mistake?
- My first area and first week tracking I did my first real door approach. I introduced myself and did my approach and paused to listen to his response. I’m sure the man was speaking English, but it could of been alien gibberish, I could not understand a word the man said in his thick Irish accent. So I just plugged along with my approach. My companion started laughing, and said he asked you how I was doing today. It took me a long time to understand the accents in Ireland. (Cory)
- Don’t use the word Fanny, it means something else there. (Brian)
