My Mission Experience

Last Transfer!

Well, we got transfer calls last night for my LAST TRANSFER! I can’t believe it. I will be staying right here in Edmond. President Taylor told me that he would like me to stay and finish up here, which I am really excited about. Elder Callahan will be staying with me for another transfer, so by the end of it, he will have been the longest companion that I’ve had on my mission.

We had a baptism this past weekend for a really awesome guy. That was very exciting. We have another couple scheduled…one in a couple of weeks and one in December. We’ll see how they pan out. The investigators that we are teaching are doing really well. The members are really good at reaching out and fellowshipping those who are new. It is a really cool thing to see. Oh, I am not going to be District Leader this transfer either, which is kind of nice. It was good, but a bunch of extra work. They have asked Elder Goodrich to be the District Leader here in Edmond, so that will be cool. He’s an awesome guy.

Not too much else to report. The weather is getting tons better, so I am very thankful for that. In fact, it has been very awesome. It is still as random as ever, but not over 100 :). Last week he had mostly 70s. Today and tomorrow are mid 80s, and then 60s and 50s, then back up to 80s. Crazy stuff. I’m looking into classes for the U. I was thinking of taking a Digital Photography class for my fine art credit. I think that would be fun. Other than that, I think I can get the rest of my generals taken care of in a semester, I don’t know for sure though. I need 15 more credit hours of generals, it looks like.

Well, that’s all I’ve got. I’m so excited to see you guys…not too much longer either! Take care! Love you tons!

Love,
Elder Peper

More Baptisms

Howdy!

So, Things are going great here in Edmond! It maybe sounds like I will stay here for my last transfer. I sure hope so. Transfers are a week from Wednesday, so I will keep you posted. Actually, from the very unreliable and leaked information I have, it sounds like we will both be staying here in Edmond. That will be cool as well.

Last week, we had a baptism. It was really awesome, and spiritual. His name is Kevin, and he is a really awesome guy. We also have a baptism coming up this Saturday, which I am super excited about!   Anyway, that’s what’s been going on in Edmond so far. Things are awesome! Love you tons! Have a great week!

Love,

Letter to Dad

Hey Dad!

It sounds like you are really busy, but that you are doing a very good job. Glad to hear that everything is going well for you. It seems really amazing how much the Lord can organize our time for us if we are willing to do what he asks. I can’t believe you have the time for work, bishop stuff, and to go biking with Madi. That is really cool. I am glad to hear that everything is coming along nicely. You really haven’t been to Indiana since we’ve moved? You can eat Steak N’ Shake and White Castle. Haha. We have a Steak N’ Shake here in Edmond, and we go all of the time. It is pretty awesome. Everyone loves it!

 

Oh, something cool that I forgot to mention last week, is that I was able to go down to Lawton, OK on Saturday and Sunday to go to Ft. Sill. It was really awesome.  We have a church service on base there and then we split off into groups and the missionaries teach the missionary lessons to a group of soldiers there by ourselves, which is weird. I taught the 3rd lesson, so I had a smaller group, but there were 2 different first lessons with like 20 people in each group. It was pretty fun. I had a really good time. It was a good experience. Those soldiers are pretty miserable going through basic training, so I think that church is pretty much the highlight of their week.

 

Let’s see. Things are going great. We have a baptism this weekend which was slated for 2 PM, but rescheduled for 5 because the OU/Texas game is at noon, and that’s a pretty big deal here. Haha. So, we are super excited for that.

 

We had a few investigators watch conference this weekend. One of them watched it with a few friends from the ward. I asked her how she liked it and she said, “I’m speechless…I think my life has changed.” That was pretty cool to hear. So, yeah. Things are going well.

 

Take care!

 

Love,

Elder Peper
