On July 5th, Elder Brandon Peters returned home from his mission.
What an amazing day!
Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged him along this adventure.
Love you all...
|Elders, Antwi, Beall, Evans, Jackson, Peters and Parker...conquering the mountains of Ghana. Elder Parker is holding a cutlass that they had to use to hack their way though the jungle.|
|No photos again this week, but one of Elder Peters former companions posted this image on Facebook that we'd never seen before.|
|Elder Peters and his son Elder Herrod. (He wasn't able to send any photos, so I'm just posting this because they got to spend some time together this week.)|
|Typical Jungle around Kade.|
|Elder Ofusu Hene, Elder Beal and Elder Peters. Elder Peters says that his toe is healing well, that his Twi is coming along nicely and that he LOVES being a missionary. (He's not sure what he's going to do when he comes home in July...)|
|Elder Peters was limited on internet café time this week, he had to take a 3 hour tro-tro ride to Accra to see the Mission Doc and get an ingrown toenail taken care of, then the 3 hour ride back to Kade so he could wash all his clothes (by hand of course) and in the middle he was able to squeeze in an hour to write to us. The excitement of mission life!!!|

it's especially tough when you really love the people you work with.
|This is Sister Munro. She is one of the amazing office missionaries there in Accra who watches over and takes care of our Elders and Sisters. She's always been so good to let us know when packages arrive and she likes to snap photos of the missionaries when they encounter them out and about. It was her birthday last week and Elder Peters made a card for her.|
