Yesterday in Priesthood opening exercises the HPGL announced that ward and stake leadership has been made aware of upcoming changes to the full-time missionary program. This is what he said...
1- In addition to regular 2 year or 18 month missions, Bishops will have the option of recommending missionaries to serve 3 or 6 month missions.
2- If the missionary is doing well and would like to extend after the shorter 3-6 month call, they will be able to.
3- There will be more emphasis on service based missions for the shorter 3-6 month calls
These are some changes I've been hoping for and I think there are some really great implications IF these changes are accurate. Has anyone else heard anything else like this being announced in their local meetings? I thought it was an odd way to announce it. There wasn't a First Presidency letter read introducing the change or anything like it, yet ward leadership seemed totally confident in making the general announcement.
ETA- this announcement was about young Elders and Sisters serving, not Senior couples
The following was posted in the Salt Lake Craig's list:
"Looking to find someone with a foreign LDS mission call that does not want to go foreign. I have a stateside one to Chicago, Spanish speaking that I will trade you. If we are both willing to trade I bet there is a way to talk to the mission presidents, or someone, and get our calls traded. Please, I need this."
LDS Mission call trade?
You think he will get any takers? Will he be successful? I don't think so.
I have a question. Let's say you broke the law of chasity for about a year, then you decided to go on a mission and started a repentance process, but after 6 months you started comittimg the same sins again for about 7 months. Then you don't tell your bishop about it cause you still want to go on a mission but now you have stopped comittimg the sin. What happens is this situation?
I'm looking for anyone who has served a mission to fill out my survey for my high school class! Doesn't matter your gender, age, or when you did it! It is also okay if you didn't finish the mission. It's 20 questions (mostly multiple choice) and will take 5-10 minutes.
Thanks in advance!
