When did you serve?
- 2014-2016 (Joshua)
- 2013-2015 (Hannahlora)
What areas did you serve in?
- Puebla, Acatlan de Osorio, Izucar de Matamoros, Huejotzingo, Cholula, Tehuacan. (Joshua)
- Santa Isabel Cholula, Chilac Tehuacan, Metepec Atlixco and Nealtican. (Hannahlora)
What were some favorite foods?
- Tacos al Pastor, memelas with coca bien fria. (Joshua)
- Definitely the tacos, aaaall types: arabes, de pastor, carnitas todo. I really enjoyed the quesadillas with tinga that they would sell on the sides of the streets. At first I didn’t like mole poblano but it grew on me and I ended up loving it at the end of mission. (Hannahlora)
What was a funny experience?
- My trainer and eye were carrying grocery bags on the bus to get back to our area on our P day and as we were getting off the bus, I heard my companion slide down the stairs and the food went all over the street. I had to hold in my laughter but within a few minutes she was laughing too because we were so embarrassed, lol. (Hannahlora)
What was a crazy experience?
- Popo (the volcano) erupted and ash fell for about a day covering everything, it was so thick that it looked like it was snow! (Joshua)
- DOGS. DOGS ARE EVERYWHERE. There were many times we almost got bitten and we had to start carrying around sling shots to not hit them but scare them away. Definitely prepare for tons of scary stray dogs that want to hurt you… (Hannahlora)
What was a spiritual experience?
- I could go on forever with experiences that I had while in Puebla. There is a special spirit, and the people of Puebla are special people. I loved seeing the changes that people made in their lives. (Joshua)
- Everyday, just walking down the street I just felt the Spirit SO strong and I felt so blessed to serve the humble people of Puebla. So many good people! I loved it all! (Hannahlora)
What are some interesting facts about the Puebla South Mission?
- It has the second largest peak in Mexico. El Popocatepetl, it is awe inspiring! (Joshua)
- Um, it was HUGE at the time I was there. I was the first American sister in many of my areas so it was a big adjustment for people there seeing a white American girl walking around in a skirt. (Hannahlora)
What was the weather like?
- Really hot in some areas, and cold at night. I would say it’s like California. Very mild climate but still gets cold at night so wear a light jacket. (Hannahlora)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- Everything! Poblanos are the nicest and most humble people that you could ever meet. (Joshua)
- Everyone is so happy with the little that they have an they are all so generous with their homes and food even when they didn’t have very much. (Hannahlora)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- Definitely wear a versatile coat that is warm, light, and is water resistant. It rains a lot there! (Hannahlora)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- Oh SOOOO MANY. I have a different perspective on LIFE. I don’t care too much about material things anymore having seen people have so little and that in turn makes me richer by making my wants few. I am so thankful for the things that humble and kind people taught me in Puebla. (Hannahlora)
What are some skills you gained?
- I am currently learning my third language (german) and because I learned Spanish already, this helps immensely when learning more languages. I am also a lot more kind and need less. I know that happiness comes from within and not with material things. (Hannahlora)
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
- You don’t need perfect Spanish to help others feel the spirit. We are called to teach the plan of salvation, you don’t need Spanish to do that. (Joshua)
- Be happy every day of your mission. period. Be grateful and thankful for your time to just worry about other souls. It goes by fast so take advantage of EVERY opportunity to serve, to love, to be like Christ, to better your Spanish, to be the best you can every day. Don’t take it too seriously that you forget to love. (Hannahlora)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Puebla South?
- Just LOVE LOVE LOVE. Everyone you meet, give them your best. Companions, investigators, members, other missionaries. Be the type of missionary that people remember for good. (Hannahlora)
What was a funny language mistake?
- When reading scriptures outloud in church instead of pronouncing “war” I would say the word for “white girl”. (Joshua)
- I always got the for pain and the male anatomy mixed up… it was super embarrassing! Don’t do it lol. (Hannahlora)
