Teach one another
"Effective study during your mission will help you fulfill your purpose as a missionary and strengthen your testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Four of your most important study opportunities are personal study, companion study, district meetings (zone meetings), and zone conferences. Your daily schedule includes time for personal and companion study every day."
Preach My Gospel
Time out to learn by doing and having a lighthearted break at the same time! Elder Mitchell is leading this group. Below is a three legged race with a purpose. Sisters Westling, Fuller, Elders Pritchett, Esplin, Crockett, Resendez, Smith and Walker prepare for the relay. Below Elder Stallings is using a moment of waiting to play Book of Mormon pictionary.
Real play or practice or role play - whatever the name, missionaries usually find it initially awkward-- but soon discover that the real play prepares them well for teaching.

and to communicate in order to succeed.
