Pros: grow as a person, and influence others for good.
My mission was a great experience. I was able to develop more people skills as well as productive planning. We talked to as many people as we could, teaching about our Church, and would always be working alongside someone. Sometimes it was stressful when my coworker might disagree with me or the people we met weren't interested in listening, but I was able to learn Patience, Diligence, and Understanding with specific situations. The work was very rewarding, especially since it was Service work.
