A few days ago I sent a message to an elder(One of the ones from my jc) asking him if he could get in contact with my girlfriend because I was very worried about her. After the meeting tonight he asked if he could have a chat with me outside the hall. He explained that he could not get in contact with her, as she was out of his jurisdiction. I explained that he knew I could not get in touch with her, but I had recieved messages from her saying she felt suicidal and would like for him to get in touch to make she she was ok. He said she was not in his jurisdiction and could not get involved, and that elders from her hall would be in contact with her and would be helping her. I told him that I believed I was the only one she had confided this in, and asked if he could pass this information on to the elders who were seeing her. He said he could not. I reminded him of the time when he told me that he was going to pass on information to her elders to put her in a judicial committee, and asked why if he coulkd pass on that information, surely he could pass this information on because of how important it is. He again repeated he could not pass it on. I asked how he would feel if something happened to her that he could have stopped by making sure the people with her had all the information, and he said fine, because its not in my jurisdiction to pass the information on so it has nothing to do with me.I stormed off telling him if something happened I would be coming to see him again. This all took place in viewand earshot of quite a few leaving the hall.
I have been keeping in contact with her making sure she's ok, but I wanted the people in her hall to know whats going on so they could help her(I live quite a distance away, and sees a lot more of them than me), but this elder would not even do that(But would if it was a judicial matter...). I couldn't believe how cold hearted he was.
