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 Photo Album- check back on Mondays when he (hopefully) uploads more each week.


Later that day I email ed an Elder XXXXX who just got back from Madagascar little than a month to go and he had this to say about Dylan’s new area and companion.

"Wow! T.Smith. What a great guy. He is also from California. In fact he lives really close to me and we have been in the same vicinity(new years eve  dance) at the same time, we just didnt know each other.

Anjanahary is an area in the heart of the capital city of Tana. your son will be central to everything(the grocery story, the good food resturants, you know the important stuff =D) Elder Smith is good at the language and i suspect that your son will learn lots from him. Elder Smith, however, only has one month left, if i remember correctly, so it would be good to learn as much as he can as fast as he can.

and an area on top of the language! Well i wish him good luck in Anjanahary, its a hard place to work, but at least he can look back at other times in his mission and be able to say "well at least it will never be that bad again" =) Aza Kivy!"
