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

A letter to Sister Thurlow from Elder Maua'i (5/24/2011)

* I thought I would share this for all those who have had a hand in raising Dylan

Dear Sister Thurlow,

I know you must be thinking who is this? or why? Well I'm Elder Elliot Maua'i from Hawaii. And you son Elder Shaw has made a big influence to me as a missionary. I am thankful for his testimony and character. I am in the same district as he is. Your son has helped me in so many ways that I could not not write a letter. There was a time that I felt like the worst missionary ever...and if it wasn't for your son Elder Shaw I would've been hard on myself. He told me "missionary work is constant and you can't give up...we didn't even reach Madagascar"  That made me take a step back and look at reality. I know that I was called to Madgascar for a reason and I know that the Lord knew that I needed help and that's why your son Elder Shaw has been called to Madagascar. And I am eternally greatful for him and also his fmily. Thank you very much.

Elder Maua'i

p.s. Thank you

Elder Maua'i
