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 Email Letter (5/3/2011)

We texted a bit before I received his email.

Dylan: Goodness gracious mother!! I’m reading your letter right now! You doing good? Was about to reply to this big ol’ letter

Mom: you don’t have to now, especially if you leave stuff out cause you are so pressed for time you can just send a letter.

Dylan: haha no, it is alright, I’m not pressed for time

Mom: Should I just let you respond to my email. Cause I love those emails and letters of course. The days I don’t expect any letters and let Richard get the mail is the day your letters come. I now have total control of the mailbox key. So I get to get the mail and he has to ask for the key. Bwahhhahahahah

Dylan: hahahahah oh goodness, never thought I’d see the day come ;), nah, I’m a fast typer, you know that. Tell me stuff you haven’t told me yet!

Mom: I tell you everything in my epistle letters. That’s why I repeat myself. The other stuff would make you homesick that is why they tell us not to tell you. I know you are an extremely fast typer. But what about reader……. Oooooo awwwww….

DYLAN: haha reading faster.

Mom: Sis XXXX said you showed XXXX how to get extra computer time on the computers. Did you figure that out or did someone else? You know that’s not really fair to the other thousands of missionaries there.

Dylan: Well they do it so every missionary can get a chance. And we are in a building where there are no missionaries, and in the field there is no time limit. But I won’t justify. Let me reply to your letter and I’m signing off.

MOM: Don’t sign off on my account. ……I am being selfish…..or unless it is your trick to get more time. You know I would really love to hear some stories/experiences you are having. People love the alarm clock story. Are you getting g lots of mail form other people?

DYLAN: hahahaha thought, you would like to hear,so I had to get more time to reply to your email and not be rushed, I’m writing a lot so be patient, I would love to tell more stories but it is mostly the same thing every day.


Okay, finished printing it and here we go. I've been good, mahafinatra (ma-ha-fen-ah-cha), or wonderful. Oh my goodness, make sure you send a picture of that if it is bad!!

The bookstore, it is like a miniminiminimini walmart, has something in every catagory. has the song books for each language and stuff, it is way cool. I haven't seen garments there, but I do know the place to do it, it is right by the haircut place (which I'm getting one today). You can get shampoo, and a bunch of stuff from the bookstore.
