Serving in the Missouri St. Louis Mission was absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed serving my mission for the Lord and having the opportunity to meet and associate with the wonderful people in Missouri and Illinois. I made many friends there and also learned many things. I served in 7 different areas, but most of them were either in central Missouri and southeastern Illinois. I never actually served in St. Louis itself, but I did have the opportunity to visit there and go to landmark places like the Gateway Arch, the City Museum, the St. Louis Temple, and Union Station. I lived in mostly small towns surrounded by rural areas. I absolutely loved my time there and I will miss it.
