hola familia. Well finally we have some time to write.  I have never realized how much goes into all the things that a missionary president does. I am really sad to have to leave Chichen Itza. It is definitely one of my favorite areas. I am going to miss a lot of people there and I am going to miss my companion. me and him came to be really close and really good friends. Now am with Elder Robison.  He is like 6' 5" so its kinda like JP.  He took State in Idaho as a wrestler so we have some stuff in common.  He’s pretty cool.  Being an AP is crazy as well.  I haven’t been able to sleep much lately because we have a lot of stuff to do.  We had to pick up all the new missionaries from the airport and we were there until 1 last night.  It’s just amazing.  It’s funny because I just made the goal to try and lose a little bit of weight but now I won’t be walking around as much and also I’ll be with the President a lot so we will be eating a little more than the average missionary.  I am actually in a trio right now. Elder Martinez is my other companion. He’s awesome.  He has been AP for 9 months and is about to go home.  He is a great missionary.  Well I am also a grandpa now. My son Elder Peterson got a kid and his name is Elder Reyes.  So yeah this week has been pretty crazy. I’ll send some pics.  Well I don’t have much more to say but have a great week and I’ll probably write on Saturday.
