Cutest video ever...At the very beginning you hear Elder Morgan tell the kids to go find a chameleon (the Malagasy are afraid of chameleons because they think they’re poisonous so it’s always a big deal when the missionaries touch them). Taylor then tells the kids to smile “ Tsiky tsiky tsara”. That cute little boy in the front left is asking, “Is it a picture? Who? Who? Who?” And you hear Taylor tell him it’s a video.
Ha, when I was talking to all the kids, we were just naming a ton of different "laoka" that they like. Laoka is toppings for rice, they have a ton of kinds, so we were just naming a bunch.

June 20, 2012- First day at the MTC
My first day is pretty much over. Like 5 minutes after you guys left, I ran into Elder Groesbeck (David) & Elder Herrmann (Spencer). I'm also in the same zone as Elder Omori (Derek). Mom knows all of those guys I think.
My companions name is Elder Jensen. He's from SLC. He's cool, we hang out w/ Elder Mitchell (Lane) and Elder Galbreath mostly. There are 9 of us in the Madagascar district.
Our first language lesson was ridiculous. Our teacher spoke ONLY in Malagasy for like 45 minutes. We just stared and laughed. Everyone says it'll come quick though. Apparently Malagasy is supposedly easy to learn after a little bit? We'll see.
We also got to have a big group lesson w/ 3 investigators tonight. My favorite was w/ a guy named Carlo, he had lost his wife & son. He was Catholic & was worried about his son not being baptized.
Not a ton of time for details...sorry. But write back soon! I love you guys.
