to me
it's such a great feeling to not get mail the whole week while your roommates get a milllion packages and then finally get to your email to find that no one will tell me where my best friend/sister is serving!!!! sure do love you guys!!!!!!!!!!
other than that my MTC experience has been great.  I love my district and my companions.  Sister Durtschi and sister Grant.  I'm friends with them on facebook if you want to go stalk them.  They give you permission.  (no, dad, we are not allowed to get on facebook, but we found each other ahead of time before we left.)  It's crazy to think that i've been here for almost a week, but that I'm leaving just as soon.  I'll call you guys from the airport so keep your cellphones on you.  we fly out the 26th but i dont know what time.  i think i left my toothbrush and soap in the van... cause i can't find it.  and my alarm clock doesn't show any numbers....?? i think it's defective, but i've already bought a new one, so crisis averted.  I guess i don't blame Juan anymore for writing so little on pdays cause it's so crazy hectic and we're not given much time.

I have had some amazing experiences here.   We get to practice on real life investigators and I feel as though my testimony has been renewed.  I entered the MTC on wed. with 850 other missionaries.  30 of us are flying out to colorado on the 26th.  I am full of joy to know that I get to help spread the gospel with the people of Colorado.

I had a ton of stuff to say, but i can't remember everything... oh yeah, i was going to tell you the scripture I want on my missionary plaque, but I don't remember the reference and it probably doesn't even matter because our ward will never get around to  it anyway.  I wrote you guys a lettter, but it mostly just talks about how mad i am at the world that no one will tell me where meagan is going and that i haven't gotten any mail yet.  so I'll write a new one haha.  I think it's my own fault anyway cause i told you guys not to write me.  we are able to get our mail every night, but we can only write on pday.  which for me is tuesday in the mtc and so conveniently the day BEFORE i got to the MTC and the day AFTER i fly out to colorado.  From then on it will be on mondays i believe. 

I had a dream that Flint died from poison......... mom >:(

I sure love you guys.  Dad, I've already halfway filled up the notebook you gave me.  I hope you guys know how much I love you.  I will email in 2 weeks and call on the 26th :)

Love, Sister Peters

Vaya con Dios

to me
and just  a side note, ebay refunded me for my screen.  I know that's  a simple thing, but the Lord has blessed me in so many small ways.  Like how we only have a tiny bit of time to get ready in the morning, but for some reason now it only takes me 15 minutes to curl all of my hair.  and I can remember scripture references soooo much better.  My companion sis. grant is the champion of scripture references, but I'm getting there :)  I love this work and I am so honored to be able to wear this name tag :)  I hope you all are well! love ya!


  1. Hahahaha!!! That is the funniest thing ever...I mean not that you are mad but how you write about it :) I will go I FB right now and see if I can figure out where Megan is going On her mission!!

    1. No luck! Though, I'm guessing by the time you read this you'll already know...I'm really helpful like that!!!!

      Love you Shelb! You're gonna rock it!!!
