Peru Cusco Missionary Survey
Here are survey responses from Peru Cusco RMs, to give you a snapshot into what it’s like to live in the mission.
When did you serve?
- 2015-2017 (McKenna)
What areas did you serve in?
- Andahuaylas, Tupac Yupanqui Puno and Santiago Cusco. (McKenna)
What were some favorite foods?
- Aji de Gallina, Salpicon de Pollo, Milaneza de Pollo/Bisteck, Lomo Saltado, Papa Rellena, Salchipapa. (McKenna)
What was a funny experience?
What was a crazy experience?
- Walking down the street during festival season in Puno and getting touched on the hip by a drunk man. (McKenna)
What was a spiritual experience?
- In Cusco, two transfers before I ended,we weren’t having much success and I was getting pretty discouraged. I received blessing that told me that there were more people to find. My second to last transfer came around and I was training a new sister. We still had no one to teach. But I clung on to that promise God had made me and in my last transfer, we had three baptisms. Heavenly Father always keeps His promises. (McKenna)
What are some interesting facts about the Cusco Mission?
- MPC is consisted of four departments; Cusco, Puno, Apurimac and Madre de Dios. We have Macchu Picchu in Cusco and Lake Titicaca in Puno. (McKenna)
What was the weather like?
- It depends where you go. Puno is very cold but close to the sun so you’ll still burn. Cusco is not as high up as Puno and much colder. Andahuaylas is perfect temperature. It’s not too hot and not too cold. But, it may get hotter during the summer. Puerto Maldonado and Quillabamba are ALWAYS HOT. And there are lots of bugs. During the rainy season, when it rains, IT POURS. (McKenna)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- They are either REALLY Catholic or are willing to listen the word of God. They are very loving and kind, even if they just met you. But a lot of them live with their partner, but won’t ever get married so they can be baptized. (McKenna)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- For sisters, BRING LOTS OF TIGHTS! It’s cold in Cusco and Puno. Bring like, at least, 10 pairs. It’s amazing how fast you’ll get holes in them. Also bring 50spf sunscreen. In Puno, you’re super close to the sun so you’ll burn easy. (McKenna)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- I was blessed with learning Spanish and I still use it even after being home for a year. But the best blessing I received was finding my husband, who was the son of a member I met there. (McKenna)
What are some skills you gained?
- Learned fluent Spanish, washing clothes by hand, budgeting money, shopping for important stuff like cleaning supplies for the apartment, house cleaning, time budgeting. (McKenna)
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
- When you want to choke your companion, serve them instead. The quickest way to learn to love someone is by serving them. (McKenna)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Cusco?
- If you don’t convert anyone your entire mission, make sure to be your own convert. You don’t have to have the world’s strongest testimony or even a knowledge of everything right now, everything you need to know will be given to you in its own time. (McKenna)
What was a funny language mistake?
- They teach you Mexican Spanish in high school. Pelo is animal fur, cabello is human hair. Basura is garbage, garbaje is the Mexican word for it. (McKenna)
