The Mission President doesn’t need to approve everything. If you’re doing something good, keep at it. One companion and I managed to weasel our way into getting on the chaplain staff at a major hospital. That was one of the most rewarding activities of my mission, but the Mission President would have blown a gasket if he thought we weren’t out “bringing numbers to Christ.” If it’s something that would make your Mom proud of you, and something that will result in a really good story for your homecoming talk, then do it.
