Letter #41

Hello Utah Mum and Family,

I would like to start off by saying that I am super excited to Skype you all on Mother’s day which is May 23rd.  I can't believe that we still have a few more weeks, but I am really sure that it will go fast and I am excited to see you all at the end of this next month and see what you have all been up to.  I really hope and pray that I will still have a nice American accent because I know that if I don't you probably won't be able to understand me.

Well I can’t wait to tell you the biggest most best news that I have for you this week.  So on Wednesday at 3:50 a.m. (That's about 8:50 p.m. on Tuesday for you Americans) we will be catching a train and going to Birmingham for (wait for it)  IPAD training!! That's right we will be getting up early and having a long ride to the mission home and we will be getting our IPad sometime before Mother’s day.  For some reason I thought that Mother’s day was on the 10th of May, but  I now know that it is on the 23rd of May that gives us more time to get them before Mother’s day.  I can't wait for the iPads.  It is going to be a little different having iPads and doing missionary work with them, but at the same time it is going to help us a lot I believe to help others understand the church more and what we do as missionaries.  I hope that you are also all excited for me to be receiving an iPad and I am sure that you are all jealous too.

Well it sounds like you all have had a great week and that you are also getting ready for another camping trip.  Because mum tried cheating and used Google translate and typed my email in welsh it didn't quite translate it perfectly so there are a few things that didn't quite make sense and there were a few things that it didn't even translate, but from what I got it sounds like you are all going to the Dam and that there are a few people going with you.  I hope that you all have a great time and that you enjoy all of the nice weather.  I really hope that it doesn't rain on you while you are up there.  Haha

Elder Devitt is a really cool guy and we get along quite well. He has been out for about 22 months and he is still working hard and we are having a great time here in Llanelli.  It is still pretty hard and we are still having a hard time finding people who are ready for the gospel, but we are still working hard to find them.  We pretty much did a lot of finding again this last week and not much teaching.  Sorry that it's kind of boring to hear every week that all we really did was try and find people, but that is really all we do and that's all I got to tell you.  We didn't go to the family history thing last week because it was not the most effective thing to do so we just went and played football.  Just kidding we didn't play football, but we really didn't go to the Family History activity because we didn't have any investigators that were going. 

I do have some pretty exciting news for you all about one of our investigators.  I think that I have already told you about R****** and how we found her and she has been progressing really well.  We wasn’t  able to teach her this last week because we couldn't find any time that worked for her and for us so hopefully we will be able to teach her this week.  The exciting news is that she is almost ready to be baptized.  I have figured out that if we can teacher her two times this week she will be able to be baptized in about 2 weeks at the earliest.  She is so amazing and has really gained a testimony of the gospel and is enjoying coming to church and learning.  I am so excited to see her and help her to reach her baptismal date and to be baptized.

Well I really don't have much to say other than I am still excited to talk to you on Skype on the 23rd of May. Before I let you go I will have to share a quote with you.  I can't end my letter without one of those.
This week’s quote is a pretty deep quote and I am not going to add anything to the end of it because I want you to think about it and to think of what it means to you.
"If you really knew who you were you would never feel inferior again."
I want you all to think this week who you really are.

I hope that you all have a great week and that you have a lot of fun camping up at the dam.   Have some fun but remember that the party doesn't fully start unless I am there.
Elder Peterson
PS I can't wait to see all your faces on the 23rd of May
