My Missionary Commission


I am Called of God. My authority is above that of the kings of the earth. By revelation I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my Master and he has chosen me to represent him. To stand in his place, to say and do what he himself would say and do if he personally were ministering to the very people to whom he has sent me. My voice is his voice, and my acts are his acts; my words are his words, and my doctrine is his doctrine. My commission is to do what he wants done. To say what he wants said. To be a living modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of his great and marvelous latter-day work.
-Elder Bruce R McConkie

Deadline for Real(11/7/2010)

Dylan's deadline is here. Has to have the book read by today. Still in Ether. So the Stake President lets him slide as the Dentist apparently hasn't turned in Dylan's paperwork. He got 1 day reprieve. Lucky Dylan. So all day monday he is reading while I am at the Dentist. Well turns out I have a dentist appointment that day and the great dentist that we have actually let me delivery the exam papers to Bishop. I do, turns out Dylan didn't sign it. How can the boy sign the paper if the paper isn't filled out yet. DOn't get it but ok. Well turns out Dylan never sign the medical exam form either. So Dylan has to go to the bishops house and sign it. Then the bishop took the paperwork to the Stake President, but the Stake president does NOT go to the church building on Mondays. So we had to wait till Tuesday.

As of Monday Dylan still had a bit to read, so him and I sat down in his room and well, Dylan managed to get a head of me reading (because I got sick) and I started where he was and we finished together (reading silently of course). It was way fun. Very exciting. So Dylan called the stake president and told him he was done. I think the Stake President might be sick of Dylan now. I wonder if the old Stake President, who just left for a mission in July, would have gotten a kick out of Dylan and all his texting. This, I am sure, was a lesson for this Stake President. It was all very exciting. So although Dylan didn't technically meet his goal, he still accomplished it and actually got some exciting stuff out of it. I now know that Abinidai is his favorite hero. I still need to get through Alma, but I read everything before and after Alma. I think Captain Moroni is my favorite. A true warrior and if I might say American.
