Hello all!


I’m in my new ├írea with Elder Larson from south Jordan, from Bingham high. He’s a great missionary, just as happy as ever, really gets along with the people well. He does magic for the kids and they love it. This area is right along the ocean, well the Gulf of Mexico. So I get to see the beach. To get to district meeting we cross a river by ferry over into town. Most of the streets are sand and we do a lot of teaching sitting next to palm trees. There are two wards in this area and we are the missionaries for both, so we are in church for 8 hours every Sunday. We are excited for conference. It is probable that an investigator (Ramon) will get baptized in-between seccions.

Hey East High Elders!


I love to hear how are of you are doing out in your missions. It makes me so happy to know that there are people out there learning from your examples. This people will never forget you. As for me I’m down in Mexico by the beach and loving it. I am so lucky to be in an area where I’m sure parts of the book of Mormon took place. To be able to tell people that this is the account of their ancestors brings it even closer to home. I have seen the power of the Book of Mormon taking affect in the lives of the rich, poor, old, young and everything in between. When people get lost in life, feel depressed, lose hope, or don’t know where to turn, the book of Mormon has the ability to heal, council and consol. I am thankful for the hundreds and I’m sure thousands of people who have sacrificed everything to bring this book to pass. It truly is sacred and I am developing my appreciation for it more and more every day. Keep smiling east high, be yourselves and cherish every minute. Be like escalators, constant, steady, always rising.


Con mucho amor,


Elder Peine
