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

General Conference (2/20/2011)

So Dylan received his mission call and found out his report date I will admit I was a little selfish and the 1st thing I thought about was oh ya we are going to General Conference. I have always wanted to attend General conference in Salt Lake. What mormon hasn't. So we thought this is so cool we will leave friday hit up Saturday and sunday conference session...if we can get tickets. We'll first thing i didn't think about was that Friday is Dayna 18th birthday.  So we can't leave on her birthday that would be just wrong. So we thought we'd drive up on Saturday morning and catch sunday session. So we hit up the Stake President and asked him if this was okay to set Dylan apart on saturday. He said no. I was very upset to say the least. I apparently just didn't get it. Well Dylan, Richard and I talked it over and Dylan really wanted to go to General Conference (yes, he said it would be cool to go). So I called and doing it right this time, made an appointment with the Stake President. At least let me plead my case and tell him all the things we had plan that stayed within the mission rules (kind of as I am sure once he is a missionary he won't be able to go to the church history building).  So we'd stay within the missonary p-day rules.  Anyways in the morning our Stake Presidency counselor was at our building and told us that Dylan could be set apart on Saturday morning and that we could go to General conference. Bummer though SP counselor just turned down GC tickets.  UGH!  Thats okay we can hopefully get some through our bishop.  So how exciting is that to get to go to General Conference with my husband and my missionary.
