Things to clear up with them
1. In the Fall of '08 (my first semester at Institute,) whenever I missed a service (typically from oversleeping,) the pair of missionaries would come visit my apartment at 5:00 that afternoon to check if I'm okay.
That's why I told Dillon Roark that I couldn't just stop and start attending another church, and that it was therefore, hard to leave the LDS. (You later cleared it up in a message by explaining how easy it was to leave.)
2. (To be added...)
