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

THE MISSION CALL (11/27/2010)

So the Stake President was right after all. Because of family working on thanksgiving we decided to have our Feast on Saturday. Dylan's best friend was out of town on a cruise this week and Dylan promised him that he would wait for him to come back. We'll Dylan about killed himself waiting the one day, i don't think he could have waited 2 days till Chase came back on Sunday. As it was,after we got the envelope in the mail, we hung it up on the wall above the map, everytime Dylan walked by it he keep looking at it and touching it. Well, Dayna in all her funness, decided to pull a prank on him. since we couldn't give him a fake mission call we decided to change out the envelope in case he broke down in the middle of the night and open it while we were all sleeping. So we took his envelope and hid it, we replaced it with an almost exact duplicate except there was a big blue stripe on the front of the envelope, so we turned it around. A couple of hours later Dylan gave in. took the envelope off the wall and started to open it. He then resisted and put the envelope back down. Not even noticing that it wasn't the real deal, I hurried and put it back on the wall. Well Saturday came, and he couldn't wait till Sunday so he send out the word...HIGH NOON...he was going to open his call. Good thing we were having Thanksgiving at our house, I was able to clean it, and thanks to my wonderful sister Allison, who cleaned all my windows and my floor in the entry. So people started showing up at noon, we ended up waiting till 12:20, as we were trying to get the computer video up, and people on all the cell phones. It was hectic but great! Finally everyone is here and he starts to open "the call" and then he turns it over and is like...what, this isn't it. Where is my real call. It was so funny. Watch the video if you want to see if live. Anyways he thanks everyone for coming and opens it, and is looking, and starts laughing inside his head, and grandma is like..what..i can't hear you! Then he begins to real are called to service in the ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR mission! NO!!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS????? That is like winning the lottery ticket. No one in our family gets to go to such a cool place. (Go King Julian) Wow. We were all flabergasted. Wow. Watch the video. It was great. He leaves April 6, 2011. 6 days after his sister turns 18 and right after General Conference. Guess where we are going next year? You got it. General Conference. What an exciting thing to happen. That is only 4 months away. So much to do so little time. Madagascar! Wow.
