The Scruggle is Real

Hello lovely people!

This week has been crazy! We had transfers and I met Sister Neeley, my new comp. She's from Cali and is super sassy. I'm not sassy at all so I guess we'll see if this works out. JK we get along great! Our biggest struggle is not laughing at our own jokes at doors. The Lord needs a really nerdy companionship in Palm Beach right now, I guess.

The Women's Broadcast was fabulous and we told our less active member we needed a ride to semi-trick her into going. Well she loved it and we loved it! I love her so much. In fact, I'm really confused about why she doesn't go to church because she clearly has a testimony. I guess conversion in a hard thing because it's absolutely a continual process. I love that scripture that says something like, "If you have felt the song of redeeming love, I would ask; can ye feel so now?" Man. The gospel is so good but it definitely only works if you do stuff. 

Sister Mendenhall took us to get tacos after the broadcast and I saw something on the window when I looked back at Sister Neeley. I asked if the bug was inside or outside and then all heck broke loose! This nasty white spider leaped off the window toward Sister Neeley as she launched herself across the car onto Bev's car seat holder thing. We lost the spider for a minute and we all had our feet in the air out of sheer panic. Suddenly Sister Neeley saw it and started stomping on it, so I obviously screamed because I'm an adult who is not scared of spiders and Sister Mendenhall screamed. I don't know, something about the whole situation was just hilarious. I guess I just want you all to know that I'm still as ridiculous as ever. I thought maybe I'd be all dignified as a missionary but I'm totes not. It turns out you're just you but with a tag and a more important job to do. I also burned myself on the hot lettuce in my taco, but that's a different story.

We had a surprise investigator show up to church yesterday! I met Alice when I was with Sister Garlick and we literally could only understand about 20% of what she said, so we left her with a pamphlet, our number, and the church address and peaced out of there. Clearly God didn't want us to forget about her so she came to church this week and loved it! I still can't really understand most of what she says but I know if God wants us to work with her it will work out. I'll keep you updated!

With all the stress of taking over an area, I've just seen a lot of miracles. People we needed to meet, lessons we were able to teach, and just things that make me know the Lord is mindful of me. My Bishop gave my comp a blessing because that's what you do when you come to a new area and he offered me one as well. I almost said no but I'm so glad I didn't! The priesthood is the coolest thing to me. Like, that was what Heavenly Father wanted me to hear! And I felt a ton better after that. I may not be a super seasoned missionary who knows what's going on but I can do this!

Well I love you all and the gospel is true, so yeah.

Love,
Awkward Sister Peterson

Pictures from singing in church!

Last time with Sister Garlick!

Sister Neeley and I are super normal...or something.
I saw this book at target and absolutely had to take a picture with it.
And Capurnia!
