Elder Daniels had his farewell, or send off talk Sunday March 30th 2014. His was extremely thankful for all those that came to hear him talk, wish him success, and support him has he heads off to the Billings Montana Mission.
During his talk Elder Daniels spoke of different uniforms that he had worn in the past, such as a Boy Scout uniform, or a high school golf team uniform. Then said that the uniform he will be wearing for the next two years, as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was the most important uniform that he will put on in his entire life.
He spoke of how the characteristics mentioned in the Scout Law, are all attributes of our Lord Jesus Christ. Those characteristics are trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. See John 6:38, John 15:13, and Matthew 26:39 for a few scriptural support.
One of the funniest moments of the talk was when Elder Daniels said that the longest he had been away from home to date was for scout camps which lasted a week. Now this will be just like going on 104 consecutive scout camps
Elder Daniels talked about times in our lives when we have to make choices, and we can chose to be like Jesus and do as He would do, or we can make the choice the Christ would not have done. We need be like Jesus, even when the choice is hard.
Elder Daniels also played an arrangement of the song We'll Bring the World His Truth.
The word of the song are:
We have been born as Nephi of old
To goodly parents who love the Lord
We have been taught and we understand
That we must do as the Lord commands
We are as the army of Helaman
We have been taught in our youth
and we will be the Lord's missionaries
to bring the world his truth
We have been saved for these latter days
to build the kingdom in righteous ways
We hear the words our prophet declares
Let each who's worthy go forth and serve
It was a great talk, and song played by Elder Daniels.
This was followed up with a get together with family and friends.
