Myself and my family have had some odd experiences in our current congregation. I have'nt been to meetings since September because of this.
1. The CO told the elder who was studying with my husband that he was doing it as an "academic exercise." My husband is very intelligent, been in the military, has a degree and a masters and a good job. He was very discouraged and has now decided it's a great idea but the people mess it up. This elder is a real wide boy and opens his mouth before he thinks, not a great quality for a shepherd???
2. The brother and sister who studied with me (i had been inactive), kept pushing me to join the Ministerial School and become a regular pioneer. I have chronic bipolar and struggle anyway!! When I asked to stop the study, they came over to see me (I was away, thank goodness). I changed my mobile number only for it to be given out by the elder in the above paragraph!!! Data protection problem, I thought??
Some sisters in the KH only talk to my husband and ignore me. Most of the elders very distant.
I asked to be sent some new bibles but told I had to come to the KH to collect them.
I did want to go on the Ministry but as I am depressed/anxious felt the Min School was too much. I am told I had to be on the school first!!! Not come across this before???
What shall I do?
