When did you serve?

  • February 2014-August 2015 (Dolores)

Which areas did you serve in?

What were some favorite foods?

  • Tacos al pastor. Mole. Chiles rellenos. Pan dulce. Choco flan. (Spencer)
  • Pazole, tacos, casi toda la comida. Seria mas facil para mi decirle cual comida no me gusto. No me gusta menudo. (Dolores)

What was a funny experience?

  • My companion once used a kids slingshot in the street (from some kid) and when he tried to shoot it at the pole, he held it wrong and the rock nailed his hand. He didn’t break anything, but it left him a nasty bruise. (Spencer)
  • When I said esta casada instead of esta casada. (Dolores)

What was a crazy experience?

  • We heard gun shots at night when we were sleeping. (Spencer)
  • Well if you’re not dumb you’re not going to be put into danger but there were a few close calls when men would follow us and we had to go a different way home. (Dolores)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Reading The Book of Mormon with investigators was always spiritual. (Spencer)
  • When the area was completely dead and when my companion and I arrived we were lead by the spirit and we started contacting and working with the members. We found sooo many people. (Dolores)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • Super friendly. Very funny. They know how to spend time with people they love. (Spencer)
  • Well my first area I loved the members. They would always be willing to accompany us to our lessons. My second area I loved the recent converts because they had given up so much to follow Christ. I also loved the less actives…they were more willing to come with us to our lessons than the members. My last area, I really loved the youth…they had such good testimonies and the bishop was amazing. (Dolores)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Not really. I guess just bring good shoes. (Dolores)

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

  • I wish I has been more humble and gotten along better with companions. (Spencer)
  • I don’t regret anything I did. If I made a mistake, it was because of lack of knowledge. (Dolores)

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

  • Pray hard and love the people you serve. (Spencer)
  • Read the Book of Mormon and study Preach My Gospel. (Dolores)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • I would ask if Salsa Valentina was Spanish Gatorade. (Spencer)
  • Well I kind of already told you one but here’s another one. In the middle of a meeting with our missionary leader, a missionary said “ella esta bien buena.” HAHA It was so funny that my companion and I started cracking up until the elder’s companion explained to him what it meant. (Dolores)
