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

4 Generation Pedigree Chart (2/11/2011)

So one of the items that you are asked to bring to the MTC is your four generation pedigree chart and a couple of stories about your ancestors . It's interesting the things you find out about when doing your genealogy. For Dylan there are a few exciting and sad things. Sad for instance is not knowing who is great grandfather is. A one night stand is not good for anyone. Enough said on that subject.  The other is a story of his many great great grandmothers who was on the pioneer trail to Salt Lake City, when this particular grandmother just dissappeared-so the family thought- until further investigation lead to three eye witness accounts say they saw a women walking the other way- Leading to the belief that this mother just up and left her small family of tiny children to defend for themselves on the pioneer trail cause she couldn't hack it. One would hope the beginning of the story is right story- that she just dissappeared as many people did on the trial west.

One the other side it was exciting to find out that we are related to Emma Hale-wife of Joseph Smith Jr, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Bringham Young, Heber C Kimball. There was some very interesting stories that come from our family history.
