Mission Call


TAO

Recommended Posts

Well, I have received his Mission Call.  I will be going to the Ventura County Mission, and possibly be transferred elsewhere after ten weeks.  Just wanted to let you guys know.

 

If you want to email me, send me a PM and I'll get you the address.  But if possible, try to keep apologetics/politics/etc out of it.  I want to feel the spirit, and I can't do it if I'm worried about everything else ;-).  Thanks a ton.  I've loved being on this board =D.

 

 

I also served in S. California and LOVED it!!! hope all goes well!

From one cat to another, congrats!!! But shocked that you are so young, you came across to me as being much more mature. I think you'll be a fantastic missionary because you know so much about the church that you won't be narrow minded but be open to discussion about it's warts. The church is lucky to have you to represent it. I hope the people you teach are fully aware of what the church has in it's history and will join under no false premise. I think the church is already coming forth more open now, such a good move on their part. New converts are probably just aware of the anti stance and now can see it differently.

Like I told my son who served in the Northern California mission, read your bible on top of the BoM!!! Know it well, then when you come across a non LDS Christian, they'll maybe be open to listening.

Take care!!!! We'll miss your participation on the board.

word of advice. You'll no doubt see people selling this strange concoction called shaved ice, it looks tempting especially on the brutally hot days-don't buy.it. I did and that's how come I got glasses

Ventura is a nice place.  Great weather.

My mother was born in Ventura.  I'm sure it's a nice place, though I've only driven through it once.  At night.

I grew up within the Ventura mission boundaries, and my parents still live there. Congrats!

      If messengers from another faith knocked on your door, gave you a book and asked you to read it and ask God if it is true, would you invite them in to learn more?

      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 found this localized article while perusing several news lists with more exposure including realclearreligion.org and thought it curious that such mundane details would be of wider interest.
