Federal Way Missionary Survey

Here are survey responses from Washington Federal Way RMs, to give you a snapshot into what it’s like to live in the mission.

*Click here to take a survey to help pre-missionaries going to your mission.

When did you serve?

  • 2013-2014 (Clark)

What were some favorite foods?

  • I had seafood a couple times. Delicious. (Clark)

What was a funny experience?

  • We were teaching a family in their home and their four year-old son made a loud noise in the kitchen. We went in there to discover he had trapped himself on top of the refrigerator and knocked some things down. (Clark)

What was a crazy experience?

  • A drunk man asked us to take him to the church building one night. We had to walk along a busy road for a mile or two to get there. He couldn’t keep his balance well enough to stay out of the street. Eventually he collapsed beneath a tree and we called 911. (Clark)

What was a spiritual experience?

  • Isaac Adu’s baptism was special. When this sweet elderly man came up out of the water, he looked at everyone and, with a thick Ghanaian accent, said something like, “I never knew Jesus Christ had His own church on the earth. Thank you.” There was a powerful feeling there. (Clark)

What are some interesting facts about the Federal Way Mission?

  • It borders the Puget Sound and contains Mt. Rainier. It is one of the most ethnically diverse areas in the nation. (Clark)

What was the weather like?

  • It is dark and rainy for at least half of the year but summers are sunny. (Clark)

Any things you really like about the area/people?

  • They were kind and loving. People of so many different backgrounds helped me see the universal nature of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Clark)

Any packing/clothing advice?

  • I didn’t use my umbrella or rain boots even once. If you go to a rainy place, just expect to get wet, even if you’re in a car. (Clark)

What blessings did you receive from serving a mission?

  • I grew to know God more personally and I feel His trust for me. I can sense His guidance in my life. (Clark)

What are some skills you gained?

  • Listening, planning, setting goals, public speaking. (Clark)

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

  • I wish I had better understood that God really trusts us a lot. (Clark)

Any advice/testimony for pre-missionaries called to Federal Way?

  • Be a missionary now! It will help you know how to help other members be missionaries. (Clark)

What was a funny language mistake?

  • I served English-speaking but one of the missionaries went around telling everyone “Como se dice” because he thought that meant “How are you”. (Clark)
