"Fly you fools!" - Gandalf

"A mission is a bunch of 'hellos' and 'goodbyes'...
it's especially tough when you really love the people you work with. 
Dear Family & Friends, 

I sat in the back of the AP's truck bumping down a dusty hill from the new Gbawe district meeting. Elder Tohouri was talking about transfers and I was reading the most recent new era magazine. We happened to run into them on at the district meeting, it wasn't planned at all, but we convinced them to give us a ride back to our area. Elder Tohouri asked how many new missionaries would be coming, then I heard the conversation change to. "You should give my companion a treat and send him to the bush, he's never been there!!!" 
Moving from Gbawe to Kade is about as far from civilization as you can go. Elder Peters is excited to be 'in the bush'

"Nice outfit, did your boyfriend buy that for you?" - The Amazing Spiderman

Dear Family & Friends,

Just finished washing clothes and stuff, now we are cafĂ©-ing. This will be my last week with Elder Tohouri, I’m looking forward to it, but I’m also going to miss him a TON.

Elder Peters once wrote that a mission is "a lot of hellos and goodbyes" Elder Tohouri has been a great companion and he will be missed.

"Why don't you find it some place to sleep, WHILE I THINK OF A PLAN!" - Monsters Inc.

"HELLO!" from the coolest district in Ghana!

Dear family & friends,

I have more time this week than I have had over the last few weeks.
On Monday I didn't get to email for a very long time because we got home a lot later than expected because of the traffic. I’m sorry I also haven't got a picture of me fetching water at Hannah and Darlington’s house I will try to get one soon. We are going to help them paint their house.

"Well, what are you waiting for? I don't know, something amazing I guess!" - Incredibles

Dear Family, 

I had a email all thought out that i was going to write to you but we went out to Hannah and Darlingtons again to help them fetch water so I only got 30 min this week. 

Beatrice is progressing small small. I'm learning a lot of lessons about patience and work here in Gbawe. We found a lot of new people to teach this week so that's good, but our area is still not up to par for what i want. We are working for something amazing! 

Elder Tohouri has two more weeks left basically and then I will receive a new companion, and I will miss him! 

Sounds like you guys are doing awesome at home! I pray for you all and hope that everything is going well for you! 

Love, Elder Peters
