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

I had a mini missionary, which is like when I don’t have a comp, because he is on his way kind of deal, I get a kid from the ward and he goes around with me, it was SICK!! learned a good deal of malagasy, I got big plans for the future for sure though, been working hard still, becoming fluent in tentana, which is sign language for malagasy, so that is cool, only a few missionarys know it so I can chat with them lol, not much stories this week, BUT I noticed it the other day, after awhile of knowing the language you just know the words so Ive been speaking a lot more lately and it has been coming easier, which is way sick!! love you guys!!
