Unfortunately we are unable to be there to share in Bubba's farewell, but want him to know how very much we love and support him. The adventure he is about to begin in life is one of great honor, and we are so proud of him. We know he will make a phenomonal missionary and the people of Geneva will be truly blessed to know him. I came across this and thought it was pretty cool. I hope you all enjoy it too. We love you Bubba Clay!
My Missionary Commission
by Elder Bruce R. McConkie
From The Harvester Page 6
Originally titled: My 1963 Missionary Commission
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!
