I sent a handwritten letter to the bishop of my former ward. My former VT, whom I am trying to stay friends with, said I would have to talk to him. Now, I know I don’t have to, but I sent the letter, anyway. I read the Church Handbook of Instructions and it states that any member who wants their name removed has to send a handwritten letter to the bishop. Like I said, I know I didn’t have to, but I did. Might be a bad idea, might not be. Anyway, it’s in the mail. I asked to be removed immediately, with no contact except for a written letter of confirmation that my name was removed. Who knows, maybe it’ll make the process go faster!
