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

Salt Lake Temple & The MTC (4/5/2011)

So today we got to the Salt Lake Temple. It was really neat to get to take your child to the temple with you. We ended up being there for 5 hours. Definitely something worth doing before sending your child of on his/her mission.  After going to the temple we checked out of the cookie hotel and headed for Provo.  On the way down we went passed the Mount Timpanogas temple. Extremely windy there and full of construction. We ended up getting to our hotel about 5 in the evening. The boys went out and played some frisbee. Check out the video of Chase climbing up a fireplace. Later in the evening it started to rain and snow. Richard and I went out for dinner and then drove by the MTC and the Provo Temple. Driving past the MTC was an real eye opener for me that its here and Dylan is going. It's like Christmas doesn't seem real until the day arrives. I can't believe the day is just about here. Dylan will be gone for

2 years
24 months
730 days
17,520 hours
1,051,200 minutes
63,072,000 seconds

We had some great Preach My Gospel discussions. This was also the night that Dylan fessed up about his ingrown toenail and we tried to fix it but he was a baby. We even had him and Chase put their feet in the hot water and put on some peroxide. Good Stuff Man, still didn't fix it. We ended the night with some good old fashioned AC/HEATER competition. I think tonight the Heater won out as by the end of the night both boys had colds.
