March 14 2016

Well I turned a year and a half old this week in the mission. It's seriously so weird to think that 18 months has gone so fast. I am happy with the work that I have done here but seeing how fast the time has gone, I push myself to work harder everyday and to experience every last miracle that God wants me to experience while I'm still here.

So this week we had a cool reunion with Elder Lynn G Robbins from the Presidency of the 70. He talked a lot about obedience and how important it is. He told a cool story about a plane crash. The pilot of a plane got on the loud speaker and told all the passengers that they were going to have to land in the ocean and they should put on their life jackets but NOT inflate them. People panicked and started to inflate them. A lot of the people did inflate them even though the capitan had said not to. And a few people didn't inflate them and obeyed the order from the guy that knew best. When the plane crashed in the ocean, it broke into 3 parts and water immediately entered into the plane and the plane began to sink. The poeple that had inflated their life jackets immediately floated up to the ceiling of the plane and couldnt exit through the holes in the plane because they couldn't maneuver. The people that had listened and hadn't inflated their life jackets were able to swim around underwater and get out and survive.
I liked this story because it reminded me of the importance of the commandments that we have and the loving prophets. Sometimes we recieve a commandment that we dont understand, like the people that didnt understand why they shouldn't inflate their life jackets and did it even though the capitan had said not to. Sometimes we recieve commandments or suggestions from the prophets and we dont really pay much attention and it seems like not a big deal. But the prophets protect us and the commandments too. I'm so excited for the conference thats coming up! General Conference in the mission is like the best seriously haha. I know that we have a living prophet that guides us today and helps us to be happy :)
CALEB AND MATT ENTERED THE MISISON THIS WEEK! haha I'm excited for them. I dont have Caleb's email address. Can someone send it to me please? I'm happy for them because I kind of have an idea of what they're going to learn on the mission. I love those guys so much.
Well at the reunion with Elder Robbins there were like 800 missionaries there. Me and 4 other elders sang and we couldn't record because it was in the chapel but I got a picture of the group. Well there are some pictures that I'm going to send home this week. One of them is an 18 month selfie haha. I figured I would take a picture of me because I did the same when I completed a year and also 6 months. The time flies and I'm loving the mission. I still wouldn't rather be anywhere else :)
Thank you all for your love and your support. Always remember that to be Mormon is to be happy :) 
Love Elder Dahlin

Burning pants for my 18 months!
