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

On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! (12/13/10)

It has been 15 days since we received Dylan's mission call. It has been an exciting first week. Second week Dylan went with his buddy to Salt Lake and had a most exciting time. Not one I would recommend but Dylan had fun. Anyways so here it is Monday and we have a list of things to that his papers said to do IMMEDIATELY. I guess boys don't know the meaning of immediately as it has taken us two weeks to get started. Anyways today first thing on our list was
1. get shot records from Pediatrician.
2. get passport pictures taken
3. apply for passport.
4. write acceptance of call letter.
5. mail acceptance letter.
6. if we have time stop by Pomeroys. (This store has the NY Macy's effect. Its the store to shop at in NYC, if, you have the money. Any store would do but one just has to go there to say they were there)
7. Go to Doctors appointment to get Shots that dylan needs.

Items on list that got accomplished #1,2,6
So that day went something like this. 8:20 time to get up dylan, I am taking the babies to Amandas so we can get some of this stuff done. 8:55 leave for amanda's, Dylan is still in bed. 9:15 get back from dropping kids off at Amanda's, Dylan still in bed. 10:00 we are finally ready to leave. We head to the Pediatrician, get his records transfered, find out that they have no copies of Dylan receive any immunizations. Turns out he had received all his shots in Tucson, before we moved here. I had the only original shot records. Glad I saved it. Nurse suggests we go to county, as I was sure he received some shots there, turns out he didn't. Then she suggests we try the High School as the school is supposedly required to keep records for 5 years. (Nurse Elle says the school isn't required to keep any records, but since Dylan graduated last year she still had his shot records-YAY) Turned out she had the same exact shots recorded that I did. So we head back to the house, Dylan decides he needs to go see Dayna at school. 1 1/2 later back at the house he comes. While he is gone I decide to check out the passport place and times cause i was sure they closed at 2 and we were pushing time. Turns out none of the Passport/Post office Locations are open. They are all closed at 2. bummer! Rushed for nothing. Well we head to Walgreens to get passport pictures. i should have taken a picture but Dylan is wearing his tie and suit jacket with shorts one. Funniest thing around. We wait for 20 minutes just to get the picture taken. Note to self- stay away from walgreens right before all the kids get let out of school, all the moms are picking up pictures, doesn't help that it is christmas and everyone is picking up Family Christmas Pictures. Anyways we finally take the pictures, they are horrible but i guess they will work. It gets the job done. Note to everyone out there. Passport pictures are 2 for $9.99. If you have the pictures taken at the Post office they are $15.00. So we head off to the doctors get there, talk to the doctor about why we are there, Any the doctor wonders why anyone would go to Madagascar. Then ah hah! the light goes on in his must be mormon! that we are. Anyways fun part of the appointment is Dylan got 4 shots. Typhoid, DTap booster, Menengitis, and Hep A. The bad part is that the sec

ond dose of Hep A has to be given exactly 6 months from now. MTC paperwork says he needs all his shots before he enters, but then it says you can get shots there. But if he is only in the MTC for 6 weeks then he will leave the country and can't get them. OR he stays in the MTC for 3 months and will then be able to get the shots before he leaves. So question is- who do I call to ask about this? this part to be continued. Dylan did great getting his shots. 2 in each arm. A small sacrifice for the Lord.
