To clarify, although I am not part of the church and have no intention of becoming so, I have the utmost respect for what she believes and have been supportive of her choice to go on a mission since I found out about it; I think that what she is going to do is a wonderful thing. Part of me sees a beautiful future, part of me sees me getting "Dear John"-ed, and yet another part of me sees her waiting, only for it not to work out after all that time. Rough situation OP. Edited October 5, by mrmarklin. I am in no way tellling you to leave your boyfriend, but I am reminding you that to give your life to Christ means exactly what Matthew We take the guesswork out of trying to initiate conversation or knowing what to talk about. I've come here for an outside perspective on the situation so any advice will be greatly appreciated.
