Did you repent more before, during or since your mission? And why?

God heard from me most while I was “in the field.” I didn’t exactly know what I was doing out there, and once I figured it out, I didn’t want to be there. I went out and got a tattoo. My companion didn’t agree with the decision, but that didn’t stop him from brainstorming design ideas. I decided I didn’t like being with some “dude” 24-seven, so I wandered out alone, hitting bars and strip clubs, drinking my fair share of club soda and ginger ale along the way. Then came the remorse. I confessed it all and remained a missionary, honorably released by the skin of my teeth.
