  1. One of my best friends from high school is a lifelong LDS. He invited me to meet the missionaries from his ward, which I did. I had a lesson, during which I felt the Holy Ghost for the first time. Two weeks later, I began investigating and learning the Gospel from the local YSA ward missionaries, my friend, and his mom. After 2 months, I got baptized, confirmed, and ordained to Priest (all of this was the summer after I finished high school) . It's been 10 months since, and since then, and I've finished my first year of college. I've received my first calling (sacrament/activities coordinator, I also home teach), received my Patriarchal Blessing, received the Melchizedek Priesthood, and made so many great friends in the church. My mom and my extended family are cool with me being a Mormon, but my dad is still trying to adjust. Overall, the experience has been amazing. There's only been one other downside: as much as I truly enjoy attending church on Sundays, I hate getting up early! That's the abridged version.
  2. Yeah, I'm not sure why it was the counselor, and not the stake president. Anyway, the interview went just as you two said it would, and my advancement to Elder will proceed as I mentioned. I'm so excited!
  3. Tomorrow, I have my interview with the 1st counselor in my stake presidency. My interview with my branch president was on February 24, and it went fine. He told me to carefully study D&C 84:33-42, which I have read 3 times now. I clearly understand the message, and I'm pretty confident that I'm worthy and ready to become an elder. However, I am a little bit nervous, as I'm not sure what to expect from my upcoming interview. What questions will the counselor ask me? Are they the same as/similar to what the branch president asked? If anyone can answer these, I'd be really grateful. If all goes well, then my advancement will be announced/ratified on the 17th (stake conference) and I'll be ordained to the office of elder in elders quorum on the 24th.
  4. Hi, I'm roso6912 and I'm a convert to the LDS church. I was baptized on June 9, 2012 (hence my username) by my best friend, who introduced me to the church in April 2012. I'm 19 years old and currently in my 2nd semester of college (pre-med). I'm the only LDS in my family (most of whom are Hindu). My outlook on life has significantly changed for the better since my conversion, as I've developed a testimony of several aspects of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, I'm due to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood on March 24, which I'm BEYOND excited for.
