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?
