Hola, me nombre es Elder Peterson. Yo soy missionero con la iglesia de jesu cristo de los santos de los ultimos dias. Like my espanol eh? I am picking up a few things here and there.
Well, everything is going great out here. I can honestly say that this past week was one of the most exhausting and most miracle filled weeks in my entire mission. I have worked harder in the past week than I have in my whole life!! Just kidding, but I am working really hard. Elder Radford is putting me to the test!! I am so grateful that he is my companion because he is helping me to become what I want to be.
It was really great to be able to talk to my family on Mother's Day!! I didn't realize how much I missed all of their voices. And it was great to be able to talk with Hermana Peterson as well. Sounds like everyone is enjoying their time without us:)
Anyways, a couple of highlights for the week. We had an appointment with a less active who's name is Marquita Jones. She is wanting her son Charles who is 8 to be baptized and so we are going over there and teaching him the basics so he can have a knowledge of what he is doing. Charles has only been to church a couple of times in his life and Marquita hasn't been in a while. They committed to come to church and they did!! It was great to see them both there! Also, on Monday I was able to go on exchanges with Elder McDonald. After district meeting, we had a district blitz which is where everyone in the district goes and proselytes in one area. It was a great time and we picked up a lot of potentials for our district. Elder McDonald is a really cool guy honestly. He is really hard working and I learned a lot from him.
Well, That is about it for this week. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be a missionary and serve for two years!! Can't wait to write next week!!
