Hello Family! :D

I hope that all is going well for you guys! This week was awesome! We had exchanges with the STL's and I got to go over to the Paper Mill area. We have really awesome Sister Training Leaders and it was just fun to learn some new things from them. (Not to mention I got to take a break from biking and ride in a car again ;) ) Anyways, I'm trying to think if there were any crazy miracles that happened this week or anything really awesome.... Oh, the Spanish elders were really dumb and zip tied the spokes of our bike tires to the metal bar so I couldn't move the back tire of my bike. Those silly heads :P Luckily it just broke right off, but we're almost tempted to pull a prank on them now. I think the biggest thing that I'm learning from this transfer is learning that trying hard is good enough. That even though I'm not perfect at everything, the fact that I'm trying my best is good enough to the Lord. I still haven't learned that yet, but I'm getting there :P

At the moment we honestly don't really have anyone to teach. We're really working at trying to get to know the ward better and get more hours tracted. We're still seeing some Less Actives, but I think the biggest thing that we could do is try to get this ward more gung ho about missionary work. In a way, it's hard, but at the same time, I have an awesome companion, and I'm trying to do my best every day, so I honestly don't have much to complain about :P It sounds like you guys have some fun things coming up! I'm excited to hear how the Primary Program goes and hear about St Johns and the Brown Reunion :D

To answer Dad's questions: We're just in one ward here. The Roswell ward. There are three sets of missionaries in our ward. The Elders and the Zone Leaders actually work in our area. The Roswell elders are on bikes and the Zone Leaders drive a car. In our district we also have a Spanish set of sister missionaries and a Spanish set of elders. They're in the Cumorah Branch. We all go to the same building, but the Cumorah branch meets at 11:00 and Roswell meets at 2:00. Sister Madsen and I are both feeling better so that's definitely a good thing!!

I hope that all things are going well! I love you all so much! I love the mission and I am so grateful that I got to serve! Have a fantastic week!

Just Believe,
Sister Petersen
