On this Sabbath Day we share some of the reasons why we are serving our third mission together...

Elder Walter and Hermana Eileen Petersen - South America South Area Mission - October 2008 to March 2010...
Dr. Petersen helps 2,300 missionaries in 14 missions in Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay stay healthy. The missionaries in the three Buenos Aires West, North, and South Missions can come to the area office to have him check personally on their medical needs. The rest can call him on his cell phone any time of the day or night. The mission presidents and mission presidents' wives also call him often about their missionaries.
On July 27 to 30, we will make our 8th mission visit--since arriving Oct. 15--to give an hour power-point presentation in the zone conferences on "The Ten Commandments of Missionary Health & Safety" then have private consultations with each missionary who has a health concern. I run the computer for the slides, and then keep a record of each missionary who consults with the area medical advisor and what the doctor advises them to do.
We also enter each medical record in the missionary medical computer program called "e-med" that keeps a permanent record on each missionary in the whole world.

We are serving to help missionaries stay healthy to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the honest in heart who want to learn of His truths.

Our granddaughter, Sister Aimee Fisher, is serving in the Oklahoma Tulsa Mission to teach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thomas S. Monson is a Prophet of God for the whole world, and we share his beliefs that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true, restored Church of God on earth at this time. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ.

Heavenly Father lives and loves us. He is in charge of all things.

Jesus Christ is the Savior of all. By Him, the Earth and all things were created.

Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God, the Prophet of the Restoration.

Yes...the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow is that Families are Forever when we all keep our temple covenants.
Love, Elder y Hna. Petersen - Argentina

Thanks for sharing your testimony with us. I'm one of those saints whose testimony grows stronger when I hear/read others. We love you and are so grateful for everything that you do.
