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

Temple Square (4/4/2011)

So today we were suppose to get up early and go to the Salt Lake temple, then hit up the Red Butte Gardens and the Clark Planetarium, then dinner at The Roof and end it with a Carriage Ride. Well due to sleeping in late, we missed attend the Temple. But we decided that we would go see Temple Square. I mean you can't go to Salt Lake without visiting Temple Square.  So we hit up Desert Books to get a few items for Dylan, then we headed to the North Visitors Center. Dylan and Chase ended up talking with the sister missionaries for like half an hour. Then we got some pictures at the Temple. Which is very cool because before only couples getting married could actually go up to the temple to take photos, now everyone can go right up the the temple walls. So after taking pictures we headed the the church office  building to go to the observation deck on floor 26. It is a cool view. We could see our hotel up there. While we were waiting we noticed that the First Presidency had there office in room #47E and we were wondering why they had no floor mentioned just the room #. Anyways we then headed to the Brigham Young Memorial Park, the to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building where again we saw Elder Huston. And then the boys decided to take a 3 hour self guided tour of the building. Half the places they went to were off limits. They are so lucky to not have gotten in trouble. They landed on the roof of the hotel. They defintely should not have been there. Apparently, they had loads of fun because they weren't coming back until we called them and reminded them of the 5:00 warm cookies that the hotel puts out everyday. They were super yummy cookies. Would recommend this hotel by the way. Hilton Garden Inn on 600 South.
