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

Dylan's First Letter from the MTC (4/13/2011)

April 6, 2011(i think)

Dear Mother! Manahoana!
The mission president said we could and should write home saying we are, "Eating, breathing, and absolutely sleeping!" But I'm donig much better than that! First day was pretty long let me tell you! Meet our district leaders, did the basic Malagasy words and got a bunch of things! Like Malagasy Book of Mormon, vocab. Book, Preach My Gospel and many other things. My teacher is Brother Rasulo! He has one heavy accent! We talked and introduced, AND GUESS WHAT! Elder Wilson is my companion! Sister Draper's nephew! Imagine that! :)  But got all unpacked, getting the hang of it, I'll take pictures of everything! But my alarm clock does not work so will you send me another one please? Misaotra! But everything is going great! Still sick like crazy though! I'll write you back Monday if you write me back in time. Veloma!

Love your son,
Big D!
p.s. Thursday is P-day

note from MOM: about Elder Wilson, he is the nephew of a lady who use to be in our ward. He received his call the same day as Dylan and reported the same day also. i tried to get Dylan to go meet him, but Dylan didn't want to. Too funny that they are now companions.  Remember the AC/HEATER war? That is how Dylan got crazy sick. Imagine that?
