february 22, 2016 letter

Dear Family:
Hey! So this week was definitely an adventure to say the least! It has been pretty crazy lately because of the Zone conferences, but just a blast. I love seeing all of the missionaries and talking to them and helping them out in any way possible. We taught them about how to use inspired questions to overcome when someone says that no, they aren't going to keep a certain commitment. It was crazy, because the few days leading up to it, we got together with President and Sister Samuelian and role played these things. I love role playing, which is when you act how you plan to teach, and they respond according to what the investigator would probably say.  It prepares you for the lesson and helps you get several insights to what might happen in the lesson.  It also helps with your teaching skills and being able to ask them inspired questions. But let me tell you, that was a pretty intense meeting with President! Ha, It's not every day that you get to practice with your mission president and teach him! We practiced asking him to pray at the end of the lesson and then helping him overcome his objections. We practiced several times and then we taught it in zone conference.  We also got to sing at zone conference, which was cool, and then on Sunday we got to sing in Sacrament Meeting with two of the priests. 

We taught this very lesson on prayer to a guy the day after all of this practicing, and after zone conference. It went just as we had practiced, and it was awesome.  It was the most amazing experience of the whole week.   

It is crazy how fast time is flying. I start a program called "myplan" in a couple of weeks, which is where you go through some things to study and so on for the last 12 weeks of your mission. So its weird that that it is coming up so soon. But we had a great week and am excited to see where the work keeps taking us! 

I love you all! 
Love, Elder Romney (:

Elder Romney's parents went to Sister Wirick's homecoming, and were happily surprised to see Elder Adams, who had been Elder Romney's companion, there, too.  We recognized him right away, because of all the photos we'd seen. It was fun to be able to send Elder Romney a picture of Elder Adams, instead of the other way around!

Elder Romney and Elder Bromley ate dinner with a Sister in their ward, and she texted this picture to their parents.
