We spent most of this week cleaning our new "digs" and moving in. I am a day late with the blog because we were still getting settled. This week it is on with missionary work and it started with a bang. Today we began teaching a new lady the discussions. She has already came to Sacrament Meeting several times and has been reading the Book of Mormon. She has been saying her prayers and already believes the Church is true. She is a missionary's dream and maybe we might get a baptism yet?

Elder and Sister Peterson - Movin' on down the road?
Monday, June 11, 2012
This has been an interesting week with some real dog days that we seemed to get little accomplished. Then we had a couple of days at the end of the week where we seemed to catch everyone we stopped to visit. We taught two investigator lessons this week and have another new investigator starting the lessons this next week. So we are doing some missionary work along with visiting a lot of inactive members.
We are still enjoying our surroundings and have heard our first whipper-wills and really enjoy the lightning bugs or fire flies that are prominent here especially after a rain storm. The other night we were driving home and the fireflies were everywhere. They flash for a second or two then are gone and will flash for a second some where else and the light is surprisingly bright. With all those flashes of light, I was afraid some might be deer eyes reflecting the headlights. I was very jumpy and a good thing because a big doe walked in front of us and we had to slam on the brakes to miss her. Later the same evening we had to swerve around a possum in the road that was blinded by the headlights and didn't move. It is very common here to see road-kill possums. They are about like the jack rabbits used to be at home. Oh well, that is probably enough gory details.
