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

Letter from Dylan (4/16/2011)

Dear Mother,

I did get my toe fixed, and the three shots that I got were killer. Hurt so so bad. Elder Wilson got it on his camera so hopefully I can pit it on a cd and send it to you.  By the way, not that I don't trust you, its your computer. Can you put all my pictures and videos, on a hard drive as well azafady! Misaotra! let me tell ya, it is already Thursday and goodness has it flown by!! Already a week and here I am! Sounds like you had a good time in Utah though! Send me a picture of the missionary monkey! I had not gotten the scriptures from Aunt Allison yet but waiting anxiously/patiently, cause those are going to be my main ones!! Tell Brinkerhoff I say hey.  I want to know about most of the home stuff. Our first speaker was Rasband. President of the 70! Was cool. Loving the cold! T loved the quote of the day, we talked about that exact quote in class the same day! Tia anao aho!

Quote of the day was: "I am convinced that Missionary work is not easy because salvation is not a cheap experience. Salvation never was easy. We are the Church of Jesus Christ, this is the truth, and He is our great eternal head. How could we believe it would be easy for us when it was never, ever easy for him.  -Jeffrey R Holland
