Hey, I know we're a small group so far, but if there's one thing us Mormon guys like to talk about it's their missions. So, to leave a comment in this thread if you served a mission, stating where and when you served.

Venezuela - Barcelona from 96-98.

This is by no means meant to be an exclusive thread. I just think it's a cool way to get to know one another.

I joined the church when I was 18 in '90. At the time, I was focused on going to college, and having joined in a small branch in western Nebraska, no one encouraged me to go on a mission.
I bet as a member of a small branch, wherever you are, you have plenty of opportunities for missionary work.
That, and the fact that I'm the only member in my extended family, yes.
I also didn't go on a mission...I joined the military instead. But by the end of basic training I had a whole group of guys going to church with me. Of course, that was becaused they realized if they went with Airman Wilson that would be three hours of not having to clean the barracks. :P

Hey, I was born in McAllen.
Sad to say, I never got to serve in your birth city. I served up around Corpus Christi and in a tiny town called Roma for most of my two years.
Andy, I was a visa-waiter in McAllen before heading off to Venezuela. I was in a little town on the Rio Grande called Hidalgo. We used to go run along the river every morning. I loved it!
