This map show the 8 zones (which are the same names and boundaries as the stakes). Each missionary is assigned to a zone and a district and a ward. The 8 zones are:
Yellow-- Mt. Vernon
The District of Columbia, or Washington DC, is east of Mt.Vernon and Mclean and outlined in yellow. The Potomac River runs along the east border of the mission, next to Fredericksburg,
Woodbridge, and Mt.Vernon. The mission office and home are in the Annandale Zone which is centrally located in the mission. We can get to most parts of the mission from the office within an hour. Some of the far corners take longer and depending upon the traffic and time of day can take 3 hours or more. The traffic in this area is considered the second worst in the country. So we just avoid the rush hours if possible.
