- Tacos, pupusas, posolé, lomo saltado, sweeto burrito. (Dixon)
- Tacos from the taco truck near Richmond! Hawaiian Haystacks were always awesome as well! (Andrew)
What was a funny experience?
- Slipping on the ice. (Sarah)
- We had two families with the same last name call us about feeding us on the same night so we went to the house of one family thinking it was the other. Then the family we knew called us and asked us where we were. Really confusing but incredibly funny when we thought about how impossible the odds were for that happening. (Raymond)
- My companion and I and the kids of a family taught the parents how to pop whipped cream into their mouths! It was great! (Dixon)
- A funny experience that didn’t start out so funny, we were playing sports one morning for our exercise and I tripped and fell on my wrist and injured it pretty bad (bones smashed into each other and caused tendon and some bone on bone impact damage). But a cool member in our area happened to be a doctor who worked at the Logan Regional and took me in to get it x-rayed and while they were inputing my info into the computer they got a confused look on their face when they found out I was born in that hospital! I was born in Logan but haven’t lived in the U.S since I was about 2 years old. I was literally called to serve people I could have grown up with. (Andrew)
What was a crazy experience?
- Running away from a drug bust in Ogden on the street we had dinner with a member. (Sarah)
- A dog almost bit me once. (Ben)
- I got bit by a farmers dog. (Raymond)
- I was in a trio and one day I got sick, so my companions left while I was asleep on the couch. The landlord also left so I woke up alone and almost died, I felt like a fish out of water. I had no phone so I went to knock the door of the son of our senior couple. He lived two doors down from us but I knocked the door right next to us, I froze exclaimed “wrong door!”, covered my tag and ran to the next house. (Dixon)
- Got chased off somebody’s property while tracting by their intoxicated neighbor, that was fun. My companion ran to the car while I tried contacting the guy. (Andrew)
What was a spiritual experience?
- Sabrina’s baptism, she was a single mom and alcoholic and previous atheist. (Sarah)
- One of the most spiritual experiences aside from baptisms was being in the temple with someone I taught. (Ben)
- One of my happiest memories from my mission was a lesson we had with this girl who was fasting to know if she was ready to be baptized. She said she received an answer that she wasn’t prepared for it. The beauty of this moment was how much love and compassion I felt for her and how strong a desire I had to keep helping her progress simply because of the fact I wanted to see her find happiness. (Raymond)
- Striving to reconcile myself to God’s will. Seeing an investigator close to my heart get baptized. Returning to find them active and in full fellowship. Supporting a struggling companion. Learning what an investigator needs to hear during morning studies. (Dixon)
- The whole thing? Haha honestly a major highlight of my mission was during my time in Brigham City. While I was there the Ogden Temple had its open house and my companion and I were able to take most of our investigators to visit. The light in all of their eyes each time we went was amazing, and being able to see them recognize the Temple as being the house of the Lord was another witness and testimony that Christ’s church is indeed restored. (Andrew)
- We started helping these people move in. They didn’t really want to talk to us. They started liking us when we gave our service. By the end, we built a bit of friendship, and we found out that one son was going to court tomorrow and the other was going through a divorce. I gave them both blessings and they both cried. Service and the Priesthood are both so powerful. (Hyrum)
What are some interesting facts about the Logan Mission?
- People are baptized from all over the world and speak many different languages. (Sarah)
- It has a massive amount of members, but there is still so much work to do. Lots of youth to teach, suffer the little children to come unto me. (Ben)
- There have been many prophets born in our mission. Ezra Taft Benson, David O McKay and I believe Harold B Lee. We also were home to Elder Perry, Elder Cook, Elder Stevenson, and and President Packer. (Raymond)
- Martin Harris is buried in the boonies of your mission and that is one of the coolest areas to serve in. Mink farms smell like money to the locals, not us. Unpasteurized milk is available to you, it is delicious. The members are way too nice to us so find ways to repay them. Whatever you give will be returned ten-fold. (Dixon)
- I was called to the Utah Ogden Mission originally but at about my 18 month mark was reassigned to the newly formed Utah Logan Mission! We had 2 functioning Temples we could attend quarterly as zones. Our boundaries extends to southern Idaho, the northern salt flats, and almost to the Nevada boarder. (Andrew)
- L. Tom Perry got baptized in the Cache Tabernacle. If you’re lucky enough to serve in the Cache Stake or one of the YSA Stakes in Logan, you get to perform your baptisms in the same font that an apostle was baptized in. (Hyrum)
What was the weather like?
- Hot in the summer, lots of snow in the winter. (Sarah)
- Dry, dry, and dry. Hot in the summer, very very cold in the winter, -20 stuff. (Ben)
- Very hot in the summers. Extremely cold in the winters. Very beautiful in the spring and fall. (Raymond)
- Needs more snow!!! Otherwise it is very predictable. It gets hotter than I expected being from the south. It’s also pretty dry. (Dixon)
- Dry.. Dry… And did I mention dry? I’m from the east coast, wasn’t used to the desert. But the winters were pretty mild and not nearly as cold so that was nice! (Andrew)
- Hot in the summer. Mild in the winter. (Hyrum)
Any things you really like about the area/people?
- They were all kind and welcoming. (Sarah)
- People generally know about the church, and are pretty respectful most of the time. (Ben)
- I felt loved. I truly felt like important and I had the support of so many wonderful members and ward councils to help the work go forward. (Raymond)
- They are so loving and down to earth, you are so blessed to interact with them. The landscape is beautiful, it is breathtaking to go to the top of a mountain and look down at your area. Find the high ground so you can look down on the fireworks in the valley on the fourth of July. That is a novel experience. (Dixon)
- I loved the fearlessness of the youth in most of my areas. I worked a lot with them during my mission whether it was crashing their Sunday school classes or YM/YW lessons to helping with a Youth Conference. The youth were by far the best at helping us find, teach, and baptize. (Andrew)
- Logan is great. Lots of great restaurants, awesome people, a fantastic college campus. Definitely my favorite city in Utah. (Hyrum)
Any packing/clothing advice?
- Pack a long down coat. (Sarah)
- Pack for cold and for hot weather. It doesn’t rain very often. You’ll also want boots for the winter because of the snow and to keep you feet warm. (Ben)
- Stick to the advice given in the call packet. (Raymond)
- If you are buying winter stuff in Utah don’t let your companion take you to Mr. Macs. There are other options! Specifically jackets and boots. Their boots are way over priced and ugly. The jackets are just straight ugly but they do get the job done… (Dixon)
- Sweaters for winter because they are classy! Short sleeve white shirts for the rest of the year! Also I only wore one pair of ecco’s my whole mission and I walked up hill both ways basically my whole mission. (Andrew)
What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?
- I found answers to my health problems I had for four years, turned out to be a heart condition. (Sarah)
- Soooooooooo many, I learned how to be an effective communicator, How to relate to people, How to teach, How to follow the spirit, How to help and lead others, The blessings of service, in general and in the priesthood, How to work with others. (Ben)
- My life has completely changed. My whole perspective about what is important and what I want to become has been aligned with God’s plan for me. I feel reborn in every sense of that word. I love the relationship I developed with God and I love that I now know how to keep it strong. There is not enough time to put down all the good my service did for me. (Raymond)
- If I had one word to describe my experience it would be grateful. I thank God that he gave me the strength to serve these people. I praise his genius in giving us the scriptures to support us and testify to our investigators. That includes President Allred and the prophets’ counsels too. (Dixon)
- So many! I learned how to teach myself with the help of the Spirit, how to understand and help others learn and grow. Discovered how much better life is when you look to bring joy to others. So far I have had everything I need to succeed (except an eternal companion) served to me on a silver platter, was blessed with two jobs within days of applying to them. When I wasn’t sure about school a new program and opportunity appeared out of the blue for me. I’ve been blessed with never having to work on a Sunday and to be able to fulfill my callings despite my crazy work/school schedule. The blessings go on and on! (Andrew)
What are some skills you gained?
- How to deal with snow. (Sarah)
- Communication, Leadership, Working with others, Hard work, Optimism, Goals. (Ben)
- I learned how to be a much more capable public speaker. I learned how to drive in snow. I learned how to listen. I learned how to be self disciplined. I learned how to process chickens. (Raymond)
- Starting conversations with strangers! (Dixon)
- Communication, Networking, Understanding, Balance of work hard play hard, Stress management, Leadership, Are to name a few. (Andrew)
- Open, honest communication. (Hyrum)
What do you wish you knew/did at the beginning of your mission?
- How to love others unconditionally. (Sarah)
- It’s okay to make mistakes, it’s not okay to use that as an excuse to make the same mistake over and over again. If your companion or you forgets to set the alarm and you sleep in a little bit, it happens. If you keep doing that, you have a problem and need to repent. (Ben)
- I wish I knew that I didn’t need to stress so much about becoming the best I could in a day. God would make me into the person He needed me to be in the two years if I just tried. So basically do your best but not stress. (Raymond)
- Don’t judge the missionaries around you, they are imperfect. So are you. We each have a tendency towards different sins don’t forget yours just because they aren’t publicly noticeably. Learn what it means to be successful in God’s eyes as early as you can. Success isn’t based on just strict obedience or baptisms. (Dixon)
- I wish I knew how little time 2 years really is. I wish I kept a better journal and also a more detailed study journal that included the context for why I was studying something. (Andrew)
Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries going to Logan?
- Go in with an open mind and heart and the spirit will guide you to make friendships with other missionaries and everyone you meet. (Sarah)
- Be a creator of circumstances, not a creature of circumstances. If it is hard, or you’re walking all day, get over it. Jesus had hard times too, and he walked more than you did and did a lot more too. Just do everything to be like him. (Ben)
- Start developing a habit of studying an hour a day on your own. That spiritual stamina carried me far when I first got to work. (Raymond)
- You literally have no idea what you are about to experience or the changes you will go through. It is soooo exciting for me to think about you and the goodness you will soon experience: ) Get pumped for this, you are literally called by God to give people the good news:) the best news they will ever receive! (Dixon)
- Work hard, play hard. That was my trainer’s motto and it’s mine now too. Love the people even if sometimes they aren’t so nice. Serve with all your heart, might, mind, and strength so that when you finish you have nothing left to give, because once you lose yourself serving the Lord will show you who you are and the potential you have to become. Moroni 9:6 it’s hard but worth it. I testify as you serve not only will you see the blessings the Gospel will have on those you serve but you’ll recognize the miracles that make you who you are, and see the Lord do wonders. (Andrew)
- Every area can baptize. (Hyrum)
What was a funny language mistake?
- I stem changed the verb for to dwell when it didn’t need it and accidentally prayed for the Holy Ghost to die in an investigators home. . . My companion was mortified and quickly corrected my mistake. (Dixon)
