Eye Of The Tiger‏ June 24, 2013

Well you already know what it is.. (: HOW ARE YOU.. Hopefully this letter finds you all happy and just flat out enjoyin life. I pray for your peace and comfort and well being everyday, I know The Spirit Of Our Lord and his angels are with us 24 hours everyday.. I am so grateful for his protection and comfort. I am so blessed to have all of you and your love and support, it is my fuel that powers me through these brain hazy humid days.. I am so blessed to be able to know I have all you by my side.. And whenever I am feelin down I just think back in my life all the memories and what is layin ahead for me.. I am truly blessed

Well the bigger the bill, the harder you ball (: The harder it gets the harder you go, then the blessings fall and fall(: O boy I have been learnin, I know all of it is part of the mission the lord prepared for me. I remember a phrase that I have heard a few people say.. And I remember Coach Rasmussen tell me directly one time in the locker room when we played against Morgan.. I remember he came up to me and said DO YOUR JOB, and everything else will fall around you.. we kicked there trash and that is still the funnest game I remember playin my senior year.. anyway gettin weird with a uncle rico flash back.. I have learned to do what I know best. I have learned to put every bit of trust in the lord. We have been doin our part. The children of god are still workin on doin there part.. It is hard to understand how we are teachin the truth but its still harder than anything to bring people unto christ.. Salvation never was a cheap experience tho I do believe.. I am so blessed tho to be here.. Just gotta open up those eyes and get to work (: And everything else will take care of itself.. 

Well it is crazy huh how fast the time is passin.. I sure hope all is well at home.. I miss you all more than you can imagine.. Cool to think this time next year, I will be home! Ha it is crazy but it is comin in hotter than College Football on a Saturday night.. Hot.. Just sayin.. Utah Utes comin in hot this year,, Gonna go head and predict that.. Under dogs gonna do work this year,, Well, I dont have to much new to report here.. I watched a lil of the Brazil Mexico Soccer game haah Brazil beat em.. They are my pick for 2014.. 

Okay, My Loyal Petersen Family.. I am off to another crazy fast busy week. Thanks for all of the prayers, I feel of them. Know I love you and have a good week.. With all my heart.. And until next week..

Sacrificio trae BENDICIONES (: June 17, 2013

Just wanna say Happy Fathers Day again to the best Fajah on Planet Earth, thanks for your example and all the hard work you put in for all of us dad, I love ya. 

Well yupp yupper(: Another week has come and gone.. Amazing how they all pass by so fast, I honestly never thought time could pass by so fast. This life is surely such a short time.. That's why we gotta make everyday what it is meant to be, and thats nothin but pure happiness. "Come what may and love it." It has been harder for me than it has been in the whole mish lately in the aspect of tryin to find people and baptize. I have learned its not about that. We needa trust in the lord, EVERYTHING is in his time, there is time and purpose to everything in this life.. I have learned to just throw a cheeser on my face and make the day greater than I can imagine it being. It is such a blessing to wake up breathe and walk these dusty streets and learn. Even if its hotter than a fresh baked tater tot you just gotta giddy up and go(: 

I have been learnin a lot about myself in general here, I am so very grateful for the people I meet and for what I am able to learn. I know that the lord is with me in every single moment and every place that I go.. I just am gonna keep on pushin every second of everyday, I am so very grateful for your love and prayers. You may not even realize it but you help me more than you even know.. I am blesed to have all of ya in my life and I can't wait till we see each other again. 

Well this past week we received a phone call from a member sayin that there was someone waitin in the church and wanted to talk with us.. His name is Manuel, he is 20 years old and he ahd a question about the trnindad or the trinity and the godhead and how he wanted to know which church was true. We taught him about Joseph Smith and we inveted him to pray.. We are goin to visit him today.. If he doesn't get baptized well I guess we will see. We are jsut gonna do our part and teach! But it was really awesome I felt the spirit when we received the call.. I am pretty anxious to see how it all works out.. We are still workin hard with this family.. The husband was in church this past sunday so we will see!

Well I just want you all to know that I love you all , know that you are in my prayers and know that the lord loves you. Have an awesome week and we will be talkin very soon! 

LOVE ELDER Jade M. Petersen

I am sorry if this letter doesnt make to much sense I have a flippin cold and I am feelin goofy and loco from the pills hahah(: But well. guess I will get started with the updates(:

This week we had a ton of lections.. And we had divisions for a day.. I went on divisions with an Elder from Richfield haha.. We ate some Habañero peppers and holy crap I honestly thought that somethin wasnt gonna work right in my body after hahaah it was so hot it hurt to blink haah.. I got some sweet video footage thats all Im sayin..

I have learned so much here in the mission.. Most important I have learned to put all of my trust in the lord.. I know that whatever we need he will help us.. I know that he wants us to get back to him. I know that he loves us. I have felt that, everyday of my life. I have been prayin more than I ever have in my life.. I am grateful for everything that has led me to this point. I am sorry this letter is so short.. I just hope you all know how much I love you.. Thanks for all you are doin. Well another week is gonna come and go.. My next letter will be more interesting(:

Interesting Week(: JUNE 3, 2013

Well you bet, here we are in Junio folks! I cannot believe how fast the time is passing us by, but yup we all know that is cruises.. This week was really saweet.. I got to witness some serious power getting weird comin off the Pacific Ocean.. ¡Puro Poder! It was insane!  Tonalà and Arriaga up to Oaxaca's Puerto Angel got hit the worst.. It was incredible, to be living inside of it haha. Made me realize how weak we are honestly.... It was crazy watching the buses and cars driving through the water.. Really different. We helped a lot of people clean up and yup we be doin work todavìa! The people say that the tropical storms pass through here or hurricanes very often, so I'm sure we will be having plenty of water, I was happy tho cause it felt pretty good after it had been raining all week the weather wasn't straight humid and hot it was a bit cool(:.. Crazy crazy how different the world is everywhere you go. We had some sweet critters rounded up in our house after Barbara swept through to. A ton of little lizards and dos Scorpions.. Very crazy! But we had dinner. (:
Honestly I learned a ton this week so it was good.. I am just grateful that I am safe and that nothin happened. Pretty blessed to have my family and friends, know I'm prayin for you all just as you are for me. Get it right!

I am sure missing the good ol Summer days, straight up working hard and playing hard(:  Miss it.. Enjoy it extra for me and I will enjoy this water! This week I learned again that even we you do all you can in the mish, It has to be the perfect timing. The will of Lord, He knows when it is time. We are learnin alot here in Tonalà, but we are working tough to find those lost sheep! I am just lovin every minute. The days are full of life lessons and awesome memories. Wish I had a video camera every minute, it is just really beautiful everything that happens.. Most of the time. 

Well I am just proud and so very grateful for all of you.. I miss you more than anything. This time in one year, I will have 2 weeks left! Pretty crazy(: Just going to enjoy this next bit! I am feeling good and ready for whatever I need to experience, I know we are being watched over by the lord 24/7. He is blessing us. I am so grateful for all you are doin for me! Stay happy and keep goin.. I will do the same thing, you can count on that. I love you!
