So I wished my mission president happy birthday on his facebook (weird I know), and he said, "It's time to update me on your life Quinn."
He says this to everyone who comments on his FB, and leaves his e-mail. Well when I read this I thought to myself.... Hmmm, should I tell him what he wants to hear:
"Im good president. Im still in college, and working full time this summer to save money. Life is good. Still living in Portland, and nothing else mush is new."
Or should I tell him the truth:
"Im good president. Im still in college, and working full time this summer to save money. Im living in Portland and still trying to date. But there are slim pickings on the guys up here. Im sure I'll find one soon enough. I have been going to church most of the time. Oh btw, Im disfellowshipped!"
I can imagine his response mirroring some recently given general conference talk about the importance of repentance. He will say he believes in me, and that he is here to help me through this hard time in my life, but that if I come back to Christ, I will be blessed. Then he will leave with his signature sign off, "You keep smiling Elder Quinn." (Anyone who served in my mission reading this blog would know instantly what mission Im from!)
I am really tempted to just tell him the truth. I mean what is he gonna do, release me as Zone Leader? He was in the 5th Quorum of the seventy before he was my Mission President. His wife was on the General Relief Society board for the church, and writes extensively for the church.
I wanna hear from you!
Should I tell my president everything?
Did you come out to your mission president after the mission?
What was his response?
