Answers to the Deacons:

1. What do you enjoy the most about your mission?
A: What I enjoy most about my mission is getting to know the people. The people look up to you alot and they treat you like family. They are so easy to get along with. It is true when they say that the lord fits the missionary to the areas. Your heart gets tied around the people and its always hard to leave them.

2. What is the weirdest food you have eaten? 
A: The weirdest food I have ate is either chicken head, chicken feet, cow intestines, or mopane worms, I will let you take your pick which one.

3. How many people do you talk to each day?
A: This question is very very difficult to answer. We teach maybe close to 4 or 5 lessons a day but we talk to many different people when we are finding people to teach or when talking to members or whatever the case maybe. We are always talking to people.

4. What has been the biggest surprise on your mission?
A: The biggest surprise of my mission is now just as I am about to finish I have been sent back to my first area and that is where I will finish. Its a great surprise though and its great to see all the growth and the building up of the kingdom of god in the area.

5. Tell us but your favorite companion.
A: My favorite companion is Elder Ray. He just has a good personality about him. He is always striving to do what is right and to help other people. He has a positive attitude and me and him went through a lot together. He is funny but he takes things serious as well. He is from Arizona so I will definately keep in touch after mission.

6. What do you do for fun on P-Day?
A: Well we lately have been eating lunch with the other missionaries and playing board games. In other areas we would play different sports like soccer or volleyball it all depended on the day. Then in other areas we have been able to go to parks and play with lions and other things like that.

7. What General Authorities have you met?
A: I have met Carl B. Cook from the Seventy (He is the one I have worked with closely and well with alot) then I have met Russel M. Nelson, and Jeffery R. Holland and next month we will be meeting C. Scott Grow from the Seventy. I have met in passing Elder Renland and elder briknell as well.

8. Whats the scariest thing that has happened on your mission?
A: The scariest thing... I honestly dont know how to answer that one I havent had too many scarey experiences. Probably the time when I was in my first area and me and my companion one night got out of the car and we walked up to a house and no one answered so we turned around to walk back to the car and right then a group of guys came running by the car and threw another guy against our car and started beating him and mugging him. He started yelling and the lights came on in the house we were at and people came running out and scaring the people away.

9. What mode of transportation do you use the most?
A: We have a car that we use. Once and awhile we use bikes or walking but mainly it has been car.

10. Do you have McDonalds? If not where do you eat out?
A: Yes there is Mcdonalds but its far away. We eat out at a place called 'Spur' its an american indian style type shop and we get buy one get one free burgers and then we eat lots of Romans Pizza as well. That is the closest pizza there is to back home. Then there is also LOTS of KFCs.

11. What Advice do you have for a Deacon who is preparing for a mission?
A: Advice I have is to immerse yourselves in the scriptures and prayers and doing those things missionaries do way before your missions. Gain your testimony now. Your testimony is what is going to be the source of strength and support for you to go throughout your mission and your mission is what prepares you for the rest of your life. Prepare yourself now so you wont give up a single moment. The times when you tend to relax are the times you dont feel the best. Hard work = Sucess and Happiness. Do all that you can and give yourself as much time as you can to prepare. DONT WASTE TIME!
