I was baptized on 8/11/2012 and am about to finish my first year as a convert. I have heard many things about the Bishopric normally wants to wait a year before taking a new convert out of Gospel Principles and Relief Society/Priesthood meetings. I have been in Gospel Doctrine for about 6 months now and am closing in on that year mark. I have grown discouraged due to other converts getting callings after 9 months and our recent converts receiving their first calling within a month of being "dunked". I have spoken with senior missionaries (before they left for home) and my Bishop. Unfortunately, there still has been no answer.
My questions are:
What was your first calling in the church?
How long were you a convert or member before being asked to serve?
What calling have you enjoyed the most?
I was called as a deacon at 12. 4 years membership prior. The calling I enjoyed the most so far was my missionary calling at 19. If your wanting a calling keep letting your home teachers know and talk to the bishop every now and again about it. (bishops are pretty busy handling the ward... so one or two discussions might get moved to the backburner.)
