My Missionary Commission By Elder Bruce R. McConkie.
I am called of God. My authority is above that of 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 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 in deed of the divinity of his great and marvelous Latter-day work. How great is my calling!
Today we dropped Zack off at the Missionary Training Center in Provo where he will spend the next two months. It was a little emotional for us as we send him to serve the Lord. We will all miss him tons but are so proud of his choice to go and serve his Heavenly Father.
