I put on my missionary outfit with the lights off. All except the name tag—white letters on a black plastic rectangle. It says Elder Carson above the name of the church. A mosquito circles my head. Its high-pitched buzz goes loud and soft and loud again. It stops. I slap at the tingle on my neck, and I wipe the palm of my hand—a spattering of blood and mosquito parts—on my pants.
