A.W. Peterson grew up in Ingelsby, Lerbäck in Närke. He became a christan believer when he was 21 years old and studied at a mission school in Ahlsborg where he did very well. Later he was to become one of the pioneers of the revival in Värmland and Dalsland. In the church register you can find this remark: "He is never attending a service in the State Church. He uses a separate communion - a sectarian." People thought of A.W. Peterson as a very original preacher and around him and "Lundgren med lådan", who played and sang, there were many people at their meetings. They brought a lot of people to a personal faith. In many parts of Sweden A.W. Peterson was a well-known preacher and he even went abroad to Norway, Denmark and USA. Peterson and his family lived for a long while in Bjurtjärn in Värmland, but 8/8 1894 they settled in Mellerud, Dalsland, where he died after being ill for a long period of time in 1919.
