You can read all you want about the religions of a foreign country but until you actually visit and experience it, only then will you have a grasp on the realities of Satan's work in the world. Being a missionary is an immense undertaking but when you visit, you may experience sorrow and compassion for others. When you take a survey trip, you experience all of this. You learn more about the traditions, the importance of religion, and gain a better understanding of the spiritual climate you may be working in.
On survey trips, you spend time with missionaries who have been there for years. You don't experience a country as a tourist, but you gain an understanding of what life will be like if you move there. You look for potential homes, hospitals, grocery stores, churches, and schools. You live life with your missionary hosts in their home asking them questions and having them as mentors is foundational to an enlightening trip abroad.
On these trips, you will encounter a plethora of culture that makes the country unique. You learn a little bit of the language, you immerse yourself in the delicacies of local cuisine, and you interact with people at shops, restaurants, and church. You establish friendships and learn more about the country, culture, customs, and values through them. You experience the sights, the sounds, and even the tastes. You have a better grip on what the culture is like and you might just fall in love with the country.
