8/11/14 Elder Peterson - 6 is Company!

This is Elder Peterson just wanting to take the time to tell you all about the great stuff that happened this week!! It was a wonderful week. So, we had transfers on Wednesday and my new companion is a Elder Wilcox. He is from Bend, Oregon and he is a really cool guy. He is super hard working and has already taught me so much stuff. The first full day we spent together was driving around getting bunk beds for Elders and he was really cool about it. We had a fun time together that day.

So the reason why we had to get bunk beds for Elders is because we went from having 2 Elders as roommates to having 4! Our apartment is only fit for 4 total and now we have 6. It is definitely a fun ride.

But, our roommates are awesome! Our roommates are Elder Swensen (still, but not in a negative way I am just saying), Elder Christensen who goes home in a couple weeks from his mission, Elder Manning, and Elder Ortega. The last two are two of my former companions! It is pretty sweet! We are having such a blast so far this transfer. We recently discovered an outdoor hockey arena that is really close to our apartment complex and we have gone a couple of times to play outdoor indoor soccer. Hope that makes sense. It has been real fun.
 
So, a quick miracle from this past week. One of our investigators Tamar has recently been struggling a bit with a couple concerns about the church, but he was able to pray and read in the Book of Mormon and he received his answer and wants to become a member of the church! We are so excited for him! He agreed to be baptized on Aug. 24th which is two weeks away. I ask if you can keep him in your prayers that he will continue to learn and progress towards his goal. We know that he can do it!
 
The way that Tamar gained a testimony of the church is the same way that anyone can gain a testimony of the church. He read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. That is all it takes. The promise is that anyone can receive a witness for themselves of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon if they take the time to sincerely ask God. I know that this is true.

Thanks to everyone for your prayers! I hope that you all have a great week!

Love,
Elder Peterson
