as my time here shortens i have come to realize that i like kayelyn so much more than i realized. she amazes me. i'm not going to see her for three days, she's going to see a concert in las vegas. i'm seriously going to miss her.
i am anticipating my mission so much. i cannot wait to be set apart as a full time missionary. full time. thats sounds so good to me right now. i'm leaving and entering the mission field. the battle field. armed with only my testimony. my mission is so sacred to me, i cannot wait to serve. i've worked hard, proven myself, and i've been called by my Heavenly Father to bring the fullness of the gospel to the people in South Carolina.
a quote by Elder Bruce R McConkie comes to mind as i prepare myself to serve.
"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!!"
i could never express myself better than that. how great is my calling. my authority is above that of the kings of the earth.
for once i feel really happy. i feel strong.
