I have a relative who has suddenly decided to go on a mission.
This was something of a surprise to this relative's significant other but the latter has offered significant support for that choice.
Anyway, this relative wants to get their call soon and has openly said so. Their desire is to receive their call to the field within a matter of a few short weeks--so as to expedite entry into the harvesting ranks (and perhaps, I am inclined to suspect, in order to get back sooner from the field to rehook with their significant other).
I asked how that sped-up process would be accomplished and was informed by those who knew of the situation that certain strings were being pulled within the family circle to accomplish that goal.
Welcome to the back-channel Mormon world, where the "Who-Knows-Who" get done the "What-Knows-What"--in other words, where all are not alike in the eyes of God.
