What was a funny experience?

What was a crazy experience?

What was a spiritual experience?

What are some interesting facts about the Port of Spain Mission?

  • It is one of the most expensive missions in the world due to all the flights for transfers and incoming missionaries. It HAS the best mission president in the world. Six different currencies are used. (Kyle)

What was the weather like?

  • Very hot and humid the majority of the time, but when it does rain… it rains hard. You will sweat all day long, so get used to it and embrace it. (Kyle)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • They are the humblest, sweetest people in the world. They give you food even when they barely have any, and they will teach you life’s greatest lessons if you are humble enough to listen and observe them. (Kyle)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • Try and buy light shirts, because you won’t want things with a heavy thick material. The list will tell you to bring a lot of things, but lots of them aren’t necessary and you can buy them once you get to your area (usually even cheaper). With transfers you will have to fly to a different country and will have to be able to make weight (50 lbs) with your suitcase. (Kyle)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • Hot wife, time management skills, gospel knowledge, stronger testimony. (Kyle)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Ability to do logistics and problem solve on the spot, scheduling and time management, ability to talk to strangers with no fear, and confidence in public speaking. (Kyle)

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

  • More about gospel principles. I wish I had better gospel knowledge, because it would have made my teaching at the beginning of my mission a lot better. (Kyle)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Port of Spain?

  • Listen to President Egbert, he knows what he is doing. Everything that comes out of his mouth is inspired. Don’t strive for leadership, be yourself and be obedient and you will be given opportunities to serve as a leader. Love the people even when you don’t feel like you can. (Kyle)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • There were so many, it’s hard to just pinpoint one. Most new missionaries will not understand the Guyanese and Trinidad people at first, so it will take a while to understand the slang and broken English they use. (Kyle)
