Hi.

I am Athrun (not my real name). I'm an LDS and just passed my mission papers a month ago. I'm really desirous to go, but I have broken the Law of Chastity. I have had relationship and sexual intercourse with the same sex.

My bishop doesnt know about this. I have forsaken it and what's left is confession. I'm 25 now and I'm afraid I will not be able to go to a mission coz i'll be overage if I go over the process. Also, they really expect from me a lot; and I don't wanna turn them down. I don't also wanna bring shame to my family..I am really depressed and confused now. What to do?? Please help me :((

You need to talk to your bishop.

You don't want to go on your mission with the wrong spirit.

Thanks, Lizzy. Actually, I am composing a letter to my Bishop now; telling him all the sins that I have committed in the past. I can't simply face him right now because I am so ashamed/embarrassed. I will face him soon, just not today. Do you think that is okay? Does that count as "confessing"?

Sending a letter is a good start. He will call you in and want to discuss it more in-depth.

Repentance is more important than serving a mission, if it comes to that. There are other ways to serve, including a local mission as a ward missionary, etc.
