My whole mission I have told people that I'd rather go home completely
invisible in this mission than be known to have a bad reputation.
However like Sister Savelio told me this week, "I think it's safe to
say you're no longer under the radar." 😅
Let me just start this off by saying that I am currently emailing from
President and Sister Turvey's house (the mission home) which I will be
living in for the next couple days with my companion who I may or may
not have to escort back to New Zealand. THEY MIGHT MAKE ME FLY TO NEW
ZEALAND THIS WEEK TO DROP HER OFF HOME. I just had to get that off my
chest. My life is no longer normal.
She has been diagnosed with severe anxiety and we spent 10 DAYS in our
flat until the Turvey's finally had us come stay with them. The last
10 days I have never been so emotionally, physically, and mentally
spent. With the repeated anxiety attacks, sleepless nights, doctors
appointments, tears, and feeling completely alone I have never felt
more love and security from my Heavenly Father and Saviour Jesus
Christ. I would not have been able to do this without them.
And through all of this I just want to say how much I love President
and Sister Turvey. They truly want nothing but the best for their
missionaries and we've become really good friends. Being on the
receiving end of love and support from the missionaries and leaders in
this mission has brought me to tears multiple times, it's just like a
big warm hug.
As much as it breaks my heart that Sister Savelio might have to go
home, I know that the Lord put us together for a reason. I have
learned LOADS from this experience and I have gained an incredible new
best friend. She really is so strong and just wants to serve her
Father in Heaven. We have both been asked to pray about if she should
stay or not and what would be best for her.
I love love love this Gospel, it can heal the most broken hearts and
provides comfort that's indescribable. Please keep her in your
Love, Sister Peterson
