Another policy of the Church's that I find curious is the push to house all the missionaries in members' homes. Maybe it's just that my experience with living with members on my mission was a bit awkward, but I think having the missionaries in their own place is productive and allows them to unwind a bit and be themselves for a couple of hours each day. I understand, though, that the Church is concerned with the rising cost of housing in this country. However, I'm fine with raising the monthly cost of the mission. I say that without having kids old enough to serve yet!
