Well the chikungunya has taken it's course on me this past weekend! I've been feeling pretty weird ever since thursday but this weekend was the worst. I thought I was immune to the sickness but that wasn't true! The week was a pretty good one other than that! Unfortunately we haven't been able to see Dina or Francoise this week and neither of them were at church. We are really hoping this wee that we will get the opportunity to see them and see how things are going! Lucienne was at church again and she has been making awesome progression! We had a lesson with her last night and she basically ended up teaching us about the priesthood! That was pretty cool! Her two daughter have been starting to show interest in the gospel as well so the Lord has been blessing us immensely! We had a mom and her daughter come to church on sunday for the first time, the Franscique family! They loved church and the little 8 year old girl is super genius! Elder Christensen told me that she said to him that she learned way more at our church than at her church! We thought that was pretty cool! We have definitely been blessed lately and it is such a huge blessing! Hopefully I can get this sickness gone here soon so I can get back out to working hard! Dang mosquitoes! I've had a fever all weekend! It has been pretty fun! :) Passing my year mark was pretty weird, although it doesn't really feel like it has been that long at all! I'm so thankful for how far I have come in only one year! This gospel has been such a blessing and I love being here! I am really looking forward to this next year and how much more progression I can make! Also I hope you are saving the other half of that candy and stuff for when I get home;) That is about all for this week! Glad everyone enjoyed the fair, I didn't miss it :) haha There are some birthdays coming up soon, Mom, Kim and grandpa peterson! I wish you all a Happy Birthday!! :) Go out and celebrate for me!! I will be thinking about you all!

Again, thanks for all the love and support! I hope everyone has an awesome week! I send all my love and appreciation!! Love elder peterson!

One Year

Well, the computer isn't really having that many problems today so I should be able to get you a good email! Where do I begin? This was a super awesome week filled with blessings and miracles! I guess I will start by talking about Dina! Dina was a contact we had a couple weeks ago and ever since we left the Book of Mormon with her, she has been progressing rapidly! We had a lesson with her on Friday and we were even blessed to talk with her daughter! Saturday we had a baptism for the Elders of Baie-mahault and Dina was able to come! After the baptism, President Eclar and I took her into a room and asked her what she thought. She explained to us that she got the chills and that she felt so good! What a huge blessing! She said she knows that this is the path that she needs to take! As we were walking out of the room into the foyer of the chapel, President Eclar, in English goes, "well she is getting baptized!" It was pretty awesome and Elder Christensen and I were pumped! Our investigator whose name is Lucienne also came to the baptism and she loved it! We are amazed at the progress that our investigators have been making! Francoise, another investigator that we have, was at church as well, along with Lucienne! The three of these investigators have a baptismal date for the 6th of september and we are working hard towards these dates! One super cool thing that happened also this week, we were at a members house with Lucienne and her daughter Linda who is 21 years old. Linda has a hard time accepting doctrine and at this specific moment and time, we were talking about the law of chastity, and Linda refused to understand or even believe in it. Elder Christensen explained that one of the ways we can know if this is really God's commandment is by putting it to the test and waiting for the blessings that follow! Then out of know where lucienne goes, "I know that this is a commandment because I have put it to the test also!" It was so amazing and the spirit was so strong! That was a blessing filled week!

I hope that everyone has an awesome week and that the fair is blast! I won't miss that at all haha! I love you all and I thank you for all your love and support! Have a great week everyone! :) One year has flown by! Love elder Peterson!

   I accidently deleted everything that I was going to say and now I am running out of time, what luck do I have! We went to les saintes again yesterday and that is why you are getting the email right now! Sorry about that! Just real quickly though, Things are going awesome here! Lucian came to church and she loved it, and she loves the book of mormon! She is making so much progression! We had another investigator at church whose name is Dina and that was super awesome because we had only had one lesson with her! The lord is blessing us according to our desires and our obedience! Things are going awesome right now! Elder christensen got us stuck in the mud for about 45 minutes the other night and that was pretty funny haha! The van we are in doesn't do to well with the mud!
   That is all I have time for really! I need to go but I am glad that everyone had an awesome week and that the snake river was a blast! I am sad I missed out on that! Have a great week and sorry this letter was a short one, that is my fault! I love you all so much! thanks for all you do!!

   Well week one in lamentin was awesome! Elder Christensen and I have set some awesome goals and we are super excited to see what comes of it! One of the goals that we have recently made was to be exactly obedient so that we can achieve a goal of 3 baptisms this transfer. We started off our goals by fasting this past fast Sunday and we are excited to see what comes of it! We have already been starting to see awesome miracles happen as we have showed the lord our desires to baptize and to work hard! We did a lot of contacting this past week in some areas that haven't been worked in for a long time, if ever. The good news is, is that we placed a book of mormon with almost each contact that we had and that was a huge blessing. We really found some awesome people and we will see what comes of it this coming week! In fact, we came across a family that had a little girl that was eight years old and she amazed me with her knowledge of the gospel! All of the questions that we asked the parents (not thinking that she would understand), she ended up answering them perfectly! Elder Christensen and I were amazed! A lot of our contacts that we found were really awesome people and some huge blessings for us!
   We have a progressing investigator whose name is Lucian and we just had a miracle lesson with her last night with one of the members in our branch! Lucian has been struggling with finding the truth and has went through a couple church's, so she is pretty closed up and is having troubles deciding what to do! The lesson we had last night really helped her and we can tell that she knows that these things are true but she is still struggling a little bit! Our member that we were with really helped her and showed immense love towards her, one reason that members are so important! So this week we have another appointment with her and we are expecting miracles!
   I'm loving this area and I am looking forward to the challenges that lie in front of me! I love serving and helping those around me! It isn't exactly the easiest thing at times but I love it and it really has been helping me change into a better person! I love you all and I hope everyone enjoys the snake river for me! :) Be safe!! Thanks for all of the love and support! You are in my prayers!! Love Elder Peterson
