Elder Romney

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” – Matthew 28:19

Going into next Tuesday, there are two things we know for sure: Brother Romney has been chosen by Heavenly Father to lead this great nation, and He will make sure His chosen one wins this election.

The worldly media will make a lot of noise about the things he does as President. God will surely guide Brother Romney’s hand to great success on things like creating jobs, restoring American strength, and bringing a degree of morality back to the office of the President. Brother Romney will be hailed as the savior of this great nation; the one who turned Obama’s failure into America’s success.

But he has a more important role ahead of him. Brother Romney has and will continue to achieve temporal success, but in all our excitement over this election, we may be losing sight of the spiritual successes Brother Romney may yet achieve.

I’m speaking, of course, about missionary work. Brother Romney will soon have the opportunity to proselytize to some of the most powerful people in the world. Brother Romney sure did good works going door-to-door on his first mission in France, but he’ll soon be in a position to offer a Book of Mormon to France’s president.

This may be Heavenly father’s ultimate purpose in putting Brother Romney into office. If he can convert just one world leader, imagine the good we can achieve. Yes, the nation needs healing after being driven by a leader who led us astray, but the temporal blessings we can achieve with this election pale in comparison to the spiritual blessings millions of others can achieve with the opportunity to be introduced to this great man.

On November 6th, the thought of saying, “President Romney” is appealing. I’m more excited to see him reprise his role as Elder Romney.
