Peder has another new companion

Familia e Amigos,
So this week has been ok but it has been a little difficult. To start off we started this week really well. I taught one of our investigators named Nene and Marinha and it was straight up awesome. Marinha really wants to be baptized and she had asked about the law of chastity. So we were able to explain it to both Nene and Marinha and Nene first said that he only wants to get married at 50 and heºs 48. So I talked more about alma 34' 32 and then brought up a talk by Elder D todd Christofferson. By the end of the lesson Nene just said that it was what he had needed to hear. Man I loved that lesson this week.
 After that we went to Corvo one day and then the next day we were just walking around when Elder Da Graca said that he had a really bad headache. We got to the house and he said it was a lot moe than a headache and that his chest was killing. So we rushed off to the hospital and unfortunately because of that he had to get sent home. I really felt awful and he was such a solid comp. Right now he is doing a lot better but just because of that incident he had to go back to Sao Filipe. So now Iºm with Elder Lima from Praia. Heºs just waiting on his visa to go to portugal but itºs all good. He seems really smart and it should be a good time helping him to be more prepared for portugal. But this is now my 3rd comp in 1 transfer which if I was to be honest I donºt like the constant switching. It makes it hard because you get used to a comp and then they get transfered which is super hard to deal with. But we move on and Iºve been learning a lot this transfer. One thing in particular is really the fact that we are here as missionaries really to invite people to come to christ. That is more important than any other thing that we are doing here. I am so grateful for my savior and I know that he loves each and everyone one of us. 
 I love you all and I hope that things are going well there in NH and other areas,

As usual, things are stinking Awesome for Peder

 So, since the last post, Peder has been transferred to Fogo, a volcanic island in Capo Verde.  Here is the latest:
Familia e Amigos,
So this week has been pretty good. This week Elder Bunderson really worked on finding those people who are ready for baptism and we were able to find quite a bit. We need to help a lot of those people get to church but it was straight up awesome. As well this week we did a division with the Elders in mosteiros which went well and I di a baptismla interview during that time. Although to get there it was like stinking up in the mountains which was near impossible. But everything to help save some souls. As well we had Elder Olsen, our AP come and do a division with us. It was solid and during the time I got to milk a cow which was straight up awesome. As well we met up with one our investiagtors and marked a baptismal date with him for the 1st of september. I was hesitating at first but Elder Olsen just called it and Ze( our investigator) seems pretty psyched. Also during that diviosn with him we got some interesting news. So turns ourt that Elder Bunderson and I were going to be split up. And now each one us is with a mini missionary. I'm with Elder Da Graca from Sao Filipe which should be way awesome. I am sad though to see Elder Bunderson go because he was way chill but some times it has to happen. Elder Bunderson is actually opening up a new area so that is pretty awesome. As well today ( on p-day) we had zone conference. It was stinking awesome and it was awesome to talk about how we all really need to listen more to the spirit when we teach, It was awesome and I learned so much. But for the week that's it. Man this week was crazy but I'm excited to get some work done here in Relva and hopefully we get some rain here soon. I love you all!
ps congrats Jake and Vicky! That is stinking awesome and Vicky that is awesome that you got baptized!!!
