jakepeterson93 One year ago we sent this boy out into the world. Since he left he has gotten sick with malaria, learned how to climb coconut trees and had a million other lessons and adventures. He loves the people, especially the kids, and loves serving them. He misses you all and appreciates your prayers and letters. Only one year more till he's coming home! 7mon

jakepeterson93 Caption: I am so thankful for the opportunity to be out here in Africa. It gets better and better every week. This past weekend I had the opportunity to watch Steve, who was baptized only 2 months ago, baptize our friend Claude. Nothing is more amazing than seeing the happiness someone gets from changing their life for the better. I am so thankful for my family and my friends and all of your prayers. Love you! -Elder Peterson 1y

jakepeterson93 It's a million degrees, my face is always dirty, I walk at least ten miles each day and it smells like a sewer but it's so worth it. Every time a little kid smiles at me, every time someone changes their life, every time I see a miracle I remember why I'm here and it's so worth it. 1y
