I'd like to have the RPD done, but...
« on: July 30, 2012, 03:48:48 pm »
...I'm afraid that, since it costs, when it does come time, after I take the beginners' course, that I won't be able to have it done.   :(

What can I do?

When the time comes, there are options if you speak to Hemet about it. Personally, I asked to make payments since I couldn't afford it all at once.

How much does it cost? And how long after the beginners' classes is it available?

We normally pay more to fill the gas tank on our car than the RPD costs. So it's not that much.

If I recall, it cost just over $30, and it is available when Hemet (AUS) has time. Tends to be a few weeks after the class ends- you'll have plenty of time to save up for it, if that's really what you'd like to do.. But don't worry about it until after the class is completed!!! Focus on your studies!! xD

I believe it's just over $50.  $54, isn't it?

There are always payment options! Don't let cost deter you if that is what you choose! Heck, I know some, including me, would be willing to help out if needed!

$53, and I agree... start saving a buck here and there now, and before you know it, you'll have enough. :)

As for timing, I would guess that, if you're in the next Beginner's course, RPD info will probably (though, please don't hold me to this complete guesstimate) arrive in your email sometime early next Spring time (assuming you stay on as Remetj, after the Course, that is :) ).

Something else to remember is that "when it's time" can be whenever you want or whenever you can afford it once you finish the beginner's course. Absolutely no reason to hurry or be stressed out if it takes you a while to save the money.

The RPD is $54. I know this because I just had mine done a few months ago, lol. I joined KO on the first day of 2009, and didn't even join the beginner's class until early 2011. After that, I didn't get my RPD done until this past May. Why? I didn't feel like I was ready yet. Take some time to stop and think about what RPD is and why you want it. If the reason you want it is "because you're curious" or "because you want to know who your parents are", consider the responsibility inherent in knowing this information. If you know who your parents are, wouldn't you feel the need to honor them more?

There's a lot more to RPD than just a forum signature. Just make sure you're truly ready for this sort of commitment; and if you are, then best of luck to you :)

I had mine done just a couple of weeks ago and it was $53. But like everyone else said, there's no hurry to get it done. Do it when you are ready both financially and spiritually.

I pretty much echo what everyone else has said :) Plus there is other options of payment, I would discuss it with Hemet since she is the one doing the RPD

Really, just first take the beginners course. First decide if this faith-community is where you see yourself. The RPD may or may not be something you want or feel need to do by that time.

It is not something toward which to "strive", particularly, other than to think pragmatically. But first things first :) You may decide that you want simply to take your time with for a year or more, even assuming you decide to become a member of the faith after finishing beginners.
