"The Work is Booming"

Just got moved to Kirtland area and it is a blast. The work is booming....we have now nine baptismal dates (two dropped us today). Being with Elder Flynn has taught me a lot. He has taught me to be persistent, hopeful and to have faith in and with the investigators. I have tended to lose faith in people because of how unreliable they were in my last area. This is a hard lesson to learn. I tend to doubt were faith cannot dwell. You see how you fall and then you don't stop tell your at a dead spot. Sometimes you wonder why is it so hard, why do every investigator you teach seem to notice the truth but slips away not believing. But you then look forward and see how much work needs to be done. You cry at night for your investigators, only for them rejecting the gospel that will truly bless their life. At least we have a baptism in two weeks. Their names are Hali and Troy. They are fourteen and are very excited to join. Talk to you next week.

Love, Elder Peterson
