When I arrived in the field, I received a card (like every missionary in our mission) that has My Commission by Elder Bruce R McConkie on it. It says
"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 words are His words, and my doctrine is His doctrine-for I am His agent. 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. And he that receiveth me, receiveth Him, while he that rejecteth me, rejecteth Him that sent me. How great is my calling!"This is something I've been working on...trying to remember that I was sent here to Slovakia, here to Kosice by the Lord. As a servant of the Lord, I have great power and responsibilities. And I need to act accordingly. I need to open my mouth so it will be filled and so I can find those who are ready to accept this message and be baptized.
