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 (5/15/2011)

Ry Mamako,  May 15th (dimy amby folo)

Manao Ahoana! Inona no vaovao? Tsy misy? Tsara be. Mipetrika amin fiangoana amizao aho. Tsy miresaka amin fiangoana androany aho, Kanefa tsy miomana aho din tsara izany.

How is everything going? Sorry for writing in pencil. I usually carry it in my shirt picket, but it just so happens, in the bathroom, I dunno how it happened, but fell out of my pocket right between my legs and went for a swim after I was done. And the other one is in my room's drawers! Miala tsiny aho. Hanome famelan-leloka amin ahy ve ianao?  (*moms note here- i don't know what he is saying either)

So done with church and district meeting. Just gonig through the day. We had Neil L Anderson come on Tuesday, which was way sweet. We had a good talk. 3 more weeks to go! If missionaries come in on wednesday, we will leave with them (*no I don't know what he is talking about either)  Oh Shoot getting so stoked! Just one day at a time. alright, since you want to know something bad, I've been searching diligently and omaly, my glasses broke. So I switched to the brown glasses! Like them a lot. It was just the nose piece so if I have to wear them, I still can.  

Think I'm gonna leave this page to answer questions. But can't write them till tonight. Bye for now! :D By the way, will you send, fruit snacks and granola bars? Some candy as well. Been Craving! and licorice. Oh and paydays. if you can.  Well about time for dinner, see ya later again. Tia anao aho.

Finally home. Question and answer time!  Please Please get Abel's email. Facebook him if you must.  Spongebob sheets go on the bed on tuesday. I see Demetrius a lot.  I'll send my MTC map home before I leave. Jameson- I don't see so much. only randomly. OH! If you could send me calling cards or money to call people from the airport. I will talk to you the most but want to call Dad and grandma and such. If you can't send cards I can ask someone else. You will have to explain how they work. No hepatitis shot yet. They will call us when we are ready. Elder Wilson is getting the same thing done to his toe- a shot for ingrown toe nail Rahimpitso! (word means tomorrow)  So I get to video it now.  I am still attending the temple every week. Where is chase going? X that out if you put this on the blog and I will pretend I don't know or tell him to wait a day, then send me a letter (*fat chance that happening. dylan didn't wait for chase to come back - we are letting dylan suffer now that chase received his call)

June 6th, Monday, we all leave. I'll post my pictures up in Mada and let you know what website  :) I'll make a video of me speaking. Don't worry! Everyone is writing in my journal so I have their names.  Tia anao aho. Sleep good. Mandra pionona!

Elder Shaw
