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 23, 2012- Life rocks in the MTC!
So this'll probably be a shortish letter, because its not P-day so we don't have lots of time. Anyway, thanks for the package! So many cookies, they'll definitely last all 9 weeks. Thanks for the other stuff too.
As far as a jacket, wanna just grab a kinda baggy one? I don't care really, I'll never use it here, it's too hot, but I'll pack it for Mada. Also, the Malagasy hymnbook would be nice. We sing out of them every day. (We're horrible, ha.)
So, in my last letter, I think I talked about my district. We have such a sick district, everyone is so wild, but we can crack down when we need to.
The language is nuts. I'll give examples in my email, but it's exactly like talking like Yoda. Everything is backwards.
Finally saw Jay, he was way happy, we ran into each other during lunch. Speaking of lunch, I have in fact gotten my appetite back.
Anyway, Elder Jensen & I got to teach our first lesson in Malagasy last night. The guys name is Tojo (pronounced "Toot-zoo"). We couldn't understand him hardly, but he seemed to understand us. We did a super simple Restoration lesson.
I'll give more details in an email, talk to you soon!
