So, transfers are on Wednesday and I found out that Elder Wilcox and I are staying together! It will be fun. We also found out that we are moving to a new apartment...I am kinda bummed. We aren't going to have roommates anymore. Elder Manning, Elder Ortega, and Elder Swensen have been a lot of fun the past 6 weeks. I am going to miss them!
So we were able to take Tamar to the Visitors Center on Saturday. He really had a great time there. We watched a short video about a missionary and his experience to help Tamar understand the importance of missionary work. It was the perfect video for him too! We also watched the "God's Plan" video which is played at most Visitors Centers I believe. It goes through the life of a family in 10 minutes to portray the importance of families. Tamar really liked it. Overall it was a positive experience for him. We were able to reset his baptismal date October 5th so please pray that it will happen this time! He came to church and is really making progress, we just need continued prayers for him.
Well, this morning we had the opportunity to take some photos of the sunrise down at the National Mall. Right now I am writing this email at the Korean War Memorial. It is really peaceful here. It was a neat experience to be able to really think about what this country truly means to me and how beautiful the National Mall is. How truly grateful I am to be serving here. It is such an amazing experience. The Spirit is evident in my life and in the life of so many people over here.
I love you all. Have a wonderful week!Elder Peterson
