Asked to help a family navigate the Truthcrisis

Discussions about negotiating relationships between faithful LDS believers and the apostates who love them. This applies in particular to mixed-faith marriages, but relations with children, parents, siblings, friends, and ward members is very welcome.

Asked to help a family navigate the Truthcrisis

Post by Meilingkie » Wed May 15, 2019 12:54 pm

Hi all,

2 months ago an American lady contacted me and asked me if I was the guy from MS episode 705, and she asked if I would help her and others get out. Just as a soundboard and possible friend.

So I went, joined a new FB-group of dutch ex-mormons and disaffected mormons. A few people I referred to in the past now joined as well.

One of the ladies called L I’ve fast become close friends with, and she introduced me to a younger sister of her called J. Well, we have taken to like one another very much, as far as possible with an entire continent between us. So J and I will be going to Cologne for a few days this summer. She comes over from the Far East and will stay with sister L.

Sister L. Wants her lil sis out, and so do I. Brought L. the Joseph Smith papers I had. L read parts and became very angry. Mind you, she left the church 23 years ago already.

I also am handling the move of their personal belongings from the USA. Working at a major shippingline and knowing many movingcompanies, customers of us, helps a lot. I speak their jargon, You get the drill.

L’s and her husband now offered me to come along on the family-holiday, as a token of their love and appreciation and to well.... help us along, you know J and me.
Meaning a week at a something akin to Disneyworld. Including J.❤️, but also their TBM father, stepmom, 3 brothers with families. Thankful, yes. Apprehensive, immense.

Shall I simply keep to the NOM-mantra and go slow?
I know L.’s nevermo-husband is immensely angry now because we recently went through the CES-letter too.

With your new hair and beard style you would look awesome with a couple of horns glued to your forehead.

Got 2 tickets for the TGV to Paris in late August.
Take J. there just for a quick getaway. The day before she departs for the Far East again.
