june 29, 2015 letter

Dear Family:
This week seemed like such a long week! But it was really so good.  When I went over to our investigators, we thought that they were going to put off their baptism date for a year to wait till they were financially stable enough for tithing, but when we went over there they were talking to one of their good friends who is LDS, and he was helping answer some questions that they had.  When their conversation ended they said they had talked and they both want to be baptized in September! We were so excited for them! It's a little ways off, but we are hoping that is going to change in a while, through their faith. 

We also had such a good lesson with the new investigator that was Atheist. I haven't met anyone, other than the young man and woman we just baptized who have been more prepared for the gospel. The Book of Mormon that we gave her a couple weeks ago had 20 chapters completely marked up. It was nuts! As we went over the chapters that she read, she had chosen all of the golden chapters and highlighted super super good verses. She said they just spoke to her and she found a lot through the index of the book. It was amazing. We could feel the spirit so strong there and we invited her to be baptized and without hesitation, she said absolutely. She has made so many changes in her life and she says she has never been happier.  We had to put the date back to August 8th, because she can only meet with us once a week, but we try and stay in contact with her every day through emailing videos. We are super excited. The only problem is that she lives out of the mission, so more than likely, we wouldn't be able to baptize her in our ward and we will have to give her to the Portland mission. 

We also went on exchanges with the AP's (assistants to the president) and it was super good. I learned a lot and I learned that just teaching simply and testifying and always being positive about everything can change the zone! I also learned about the power of being positive and how much that can help our missionaries by focusing always on the positive of what they've done and not the negative. 

We also had to buck 150 bails of hay. It was crazy and we got super sweaty. It is getting so hot here and it's getting pretty hard to bear! It's been at least 95, and is super muggy and humid and we sweat within like 2 minutes of going outside. But things are going really well right now and we are trying to find more investigators to teach! 
I love you guys so much! 
Love, Elder Romney (:
