Month of May

08 May 2017

So, it was a good week.  

We left Tuesday in the morning for our multizona in Resistencia and didn’t get back to Paso de los Libres until Tuesday morning at 5:30 in the morning... it’s kind of a long story so I think I might just save it for next week!

So, Wednesday was just kind of rough just because we were running on no sleep whatsoever... Thursday we did divisions with the Elder of Pasos 2 and I went with Elder Figueroa from Mar del Plata! he’s super funny and dope and keeps it real since he’s 25 years old and a new missionary! The divisions were fine and had some good charlas together.  Friday, the Elders from Pasos 2 had a wedding for one of their investigators and in the afternoon, they had an activity in the church to celebrate... Saturday we had a capilla abierta (you can look what it is because I don’t want to explain it) and it was alright... not the most successful thing I have ever witnessed but its fine we still got some people to come! so Sunday we were able to relax a little bit in church I guess.

Dad... nowhere here is comparable to the States... I know I probably shouldn’t say this but I like the States a lot more... like a lot... I’m proud to be an American.  Yeah, all the businesses are small business even though they’re all the same, they usually sell clothes, if not they sell food like bakery or a restaurant added on to their houses, and if it’s not that, it’s a pet food store... there’s not much variety here...People drink matte for fun...Yes, they have a movie theater but people usually don’t have money for it... and no one from Brazil comes here... all the Argentines just go over there since it’s all just so much cheaper.  Sim, Eu Fallo Portugués.  The trees are painted white to stop the ants and bugs from climbing up them and eating all the leaves and stuff away.  But it was a good week over all!

For Skype, I will be on around like 6 o’clock my time so like 1PM your time!
Talk to you next week!

PS no fotos this week cause my card reader broke...

hey fam,

So, this week was a pretty good week! We did divisions with the Elders from Curuzu Cuatia this past week. I was with Elder Ignacio from Buenos Aires and it was fun! it has been a while since I had been down to Curuzu so it was nice to be back!

As well I don’t have a lot to say since we had the skype call yesterday. Sorry to sound super negative! I don’t want you guys thinking that I’m hating the mission or I’m not having a good time.  I’m having a great time and working hard out here! It can just be kind of frustrating sometimes because we put up with a lot of crap here in Pasos, especially as the zone leaders! But we just choose to laugh it off and be sarcastic about it just to lighten the mood and try and turn the days around.  So, Me and Elder Dean make a lot of sarcastic jokes just to get us through and a lot of the times it just comes off really negative! But I’m having a good time! don’t worry about me!  But have a good week! love ya all!

So, surprise! we had transfers this week!  So, I got transferred to Corrientes Capital again!! This time I’m in the branch of Costanera! So, I got the centro and super luxury part of the mission… I got here and the work has been going super well and there’s lots of people they are teaching so we are going to help them get baptized this transfer! My companion is Elder Bybee from Roy, Utah. He’s pretty cool! But I haven’t even had time to work in the area yet so i dont know anyone or anything yet!! But its definitely a lot louder and crazier here then Pasos! But all is well!

Here’s some pictures of the investigators we had in Pasos.   Have a great week!

So, we have had a pretty good week! It’s been great being in a new area! Even though we are in the downtown part of Corrientes Capital we have been having lots of work to do here!! It’s been really weird.  Being in a small town in the middle of the campo and now being in the big city! There was no surprise transfer though?? it was just normal transfers and I had been in Paso de los Libres for 6 months already hahah.  But the branch is doing well, it’s actually smaller than the one we had in Pasos but the members are all super awesome! It’s really nice too because the church is right on the river front!!

But me and my companion are going super well!  But being here has been a lot less stressful and we can just go out and work instead of always having to travel and doing things and worrying about a zone of missionaries!  There’s not much to say haha it’s all good!

Sounds like things are going well back at home and you guys are keeping busy!  But I don’t have any pictures for this week because my camera has been dead and I think I left my charger in Pasos so I have to wait for Elder Dean to bring it here to Capital!

but I hope you have a great week!
Love you all!

Re: What do May Flowers bring??

The fetch is a Christian Buddhist?

Yup sounds like everything is the same old same old, just as it is here. Tomorrow we travel back to Resistencia for a 3rd time this transfer for multizona with Presidente Franco and all the missionaries in Corrientes. So, it should be fun, we actually have a pretty busy week this next week and not a lot of energy to get us through it hahaha we’re so tired and dead.

But everyone I said hi for me! Have a great week!

Things were just as they always were this past week! We did divisions in Mercedes this past week with Elder Butler and Elder Bowerbank! They’re pretty dope.  In terms of lessons we don’t get a lot here... it’s been a struggle finding news here.  We just walk around getting rejected all day long hahaha we have 2 investigators that are dope so we always look forward to when we have lessons with them.  I don’t really got any more stories actually… not off the top of my head! You’ll have to ask some more questions to jog my memory a little bit.  Yes, I heard he got a new car…

But all is well for us over here! Hope you have a great week!


Re: Post Easter

Hey fam!
So, it was a pretty good week! I guess... we had to make another trip down to Resistencia to learn about water and the new water filters... it was boring... now I know what dad’s life is like.... But we got some good work in and have found some pretty good new people this week! Our investigator had a birthday party for her son in the church this past week so we got to stop by and help inflate balloons for a little bit! But Elder Dean and I are getting along super well!  He is making a push for one of my favorites!

And mom’s life is just as sarcastic as ever...
You got my travel plans?! Oh, my gosh you shouldn’t have said that hahaha

Yes, there are a few families I have gotten to know in my time here.
I give talks whenever I’m needed to give one.
What are branch council meetings? 
Youth council activities are off limits to missionaries... plus there are no youth...
The new filters work, work fine? I don’t know doesn’t salmonella take a few days to kick in??

Well I hope you have a great week! Love you guys!

PS: I haven’t heard anything about Skype calls yet, I’ll just call when I got the time I guess!

PSS: Don’t you think I would have told you if I got mugged or not?

On to the next one

Hey everyone!
Hope all is well! Just wanted to let you guys know that I’m doing well!
Nothing really new to keep you guys updated on!
Feliz Pascua!
Elder Peters
Hey fam!
So, things have been going really well this past week! Elder Dean and I are getting along really well and having a great time!  We had to make the trip to Resistencia for Consejo just to find out we have to be back this next week as well... To get trained to use new water filters... it’s such a joke... but it should be fun!  But it was trainquilo this week! we just went out and did work no mas! still looking for news as always which just means a bunch of contacting!  So, like.... mom still hasn’t told me where she works or what exactly she does and I’ve asked like 10 times...  But it sounds like a pretty low key week at home!  Carrie’s brother as in the one that should be in Washington DC?  Astrid doesn’t like guns?!

Hope all is well! have a great week!

But we had transfers! I'm staying in Paso de los Libres, which I'm not too sad about! I love it here! It’s been my favorite area to work so far!

But! i have a new companion! His name is Elder Dean! He’s from Virginia and he’s pretty dope! We haven't even had 24 hours together but were already screwing around and joking around it’s been fun! So, we look forward to a transfer together!

But this week we get to travel up to Resistencia... again... gotta love the long travels... so pictures to come next week!

But I hope you have a great week!

Love you all!
Elder Peters

Hey fam! so yeah... hubo transfers... And I'm staying!! I got another one here in Paso de los Libres!  But Elder Curtis left! He got transferred to my old area, Maipù.  I got a new companion now! his name is Elder Dean form Virginia! He's super dope! So, we will be enjoying our time together down here!

But yeah, the winters aren't much different... last week we had massive storms all week long! Lucky, they let up for about 5 hours on Sunday... 8am to 1pm... The Church is true.  But it was cold too... we had to be in the bus terminal at 1 am Monday morning and I had to bundle up in a sweatshirt and my rain coat just to stay warm... It was probably 70 degrees out...

We watch conference in English because it’s the language I understand alright, the locals don't even care about us and yes i got signed up for classes alright, its all good!

But all is well with us here! We get to travel down to Resistencia this week for our consejo meeting. Yes, were getting ready for Easter down here... it’s not even that big of a deal... just like all other Argentine holidays.

But have a great week!  Miss ya fam!

PS: we did an Easter egg hunt like 2 weeks ago.

What happened this past week?

Hey everyone!
So, this week was busy one for us here in Paso de los Libres!

The beginning of the week we had meetings everyday then made our way out to Curuzu Cuatia this past week to do divisions with the Elders down there!

Then coming back, we had a dope Easter activity, if you want to see what the activity was based around you can go to ;), followed by a baptism after the activity!

Then all weekend long we had General Conference! We got to listen to the words of a living prophet and the 12 apostles and it was pretty dope! all of us down here were excited to hear that our mission president’s wife, Cristina Franco, was called as a general authority of the church as well!

But it was all tranquilo this week and now the end of this transfer is this Sunday! So, won’t be back on until Tuesday of next week!
But have a great week everyone!

La Familia Mendoza

Wow sounds like a pretty interesting week for dad… Just tell Rachel that any Utah school is probably better than any Oregon school... But that doesn’t mean I like Utah over Oregon…

But it was tranquilo for us here in Pasos... we just watch [conference] it in the church no mas... The church has a satellite to watch in Spanish, so Elder Curtis and I could watch it in English on the computer! In between sessions on Saturday we shot around the basketball and then in then before priesthood we went and got pizza.

On Sunday, we just hung out in the church with the members and our investigator. But I liked a lot of conference but my favorite was obviously the Argentine dude that talked to all the investigators in the crowed! it was dope because that was the session that our investigator, Yanina, came and watched! We just hope she was paying attention!

Yes Hermana Franco got called... we were sitting there listening and heard that Cristina B. Franco was being called and I thought "that’s funny that’s exactly the same name of Hermana Franco" then when they said that she wasn’t present because she was serving a mission in Argentina we all figured out it was her and all four of us got up screaming in the middle of the session! It was pretty dope!

Wow... sounds like Will takes commitment real seriously....

But other than that, we had a pretty good week! and a baptism! Marina got baptized and confirmed this last week on Friday, it was the first time I was asked to do the confirmation.

But all is well with us! Transfers are this next week already so I won’t be writing until next Tuesday!

but have a good week!

Final Four got me trunked

Hey everyone!!
Just still out here in Paso de los Libres!
It was a pretty good week and we kicked it off with a meeting in Corrientes Capital with Presy Franco! It was pretty good I guess... I kind of slept through it all as we had to leave at 1:30 in the morning to start our travels.

But other than that, it was just a normal week of just working and playing around! Things are still going pretty well around here for all of us here in Paso de los Libres! 

But I hope you all have a great week this week!

All the missionaries in the province of Corrientes

Hey fam, so everything has been good this past week.  We had our multizona conference in Corrientes capital but I slept through most of it all since we had to leave at 1:30 in the morning to start our travels down there...But it was super fun and pictures will be sent in the group email! I didn’t get my entrevista with Presy Franco since he had another meeting to go to...

Things are going well, we are working closer to another baptism with one of our only investigators (sorry to tell ya dad... your impession just wasn’t true...) But we’re going to help her get dunked this week if she quits smoking! I have learned a lot of doctrine but the thing I have learned the most is how much I hate apostasy...It’s nice having 2 sets of companionships in Pasos, especially since they’re super dope guys! and we just put in a lot more work.  We did divisions with them this past week and I went with Elder Gonzalez in his area and he is a dope guy and are working super hard over there... just contacting ya know haha.

But have a great week!
Love you all!!
GO DUCKS!! (Presidente Franco is cheering them on too)
