Handsome Elder Sorensen hasn’t been a missionary long, but he has learned quickly that a Mormon mission can be a very political place.
And he’s also learned that a Mormon boy’s body is often the best tool he has at his disposal!
The missionaries are all subject to the leadership of the men who direct the organization broadly(bishops, stake presidents, general authorities, etc), as well as priesthood leaders who oversee their work directly, like the mission president himself.
But there is also a clear power structure among the boys themselves. And the boys are very sensitive to their place in this hierarchy, and they’re eager to advance by gaining whatever power and authority they can.
The Mission President hands out leadership positions to the boys he likes best, so missionaries are eager to please him.
The hierarchy works like this: In every pair of missionaries, one is the junior companion and the other is the senior companion. When the two have to make decisions together, the junior companion has to defer to the senior companion’s wishes.
