Anyway, it was a quick week. Funny story: So I carry 3 or 4 pictures with me in my scriptures, just of family and friends, so we can always have a good way to get conversations going with investigators. One of our investigators was looking at a picture of the family, and she was freaking out when she found out Brittany is 23. Whenever I explain Brittany or Kaesi to people I just tell them my sisters are foy be, or pretty much, stinking short. Most people here are probably about my shoulder heighth. But a few random people are taller than me.

Last week we helped a lady move, it was good to help, cuz all she had was her and her kid, but it was rough. We had to move everything she had across the rice paddies. At night. I used to love the rice paddies, but they're starting to become my enemies. It's like walking on a balance beam, while carrying someone's furniture. Good times. I may or may not have fallen in to the rice paddies once. Not bad, but my freshly shined shoes got dirtier, faster than usual, that's for sure.
Another random story. Last Monday, after we moved the lady, we were having trouble getting a taxi, and I saw a car barreling down the road. So as a joke, I starting jumping around like a maniac, flailing my arms and screaming a bloodcurdling scream. I was screaming for help, in English, so I didn't think they would care, especially because we're white. But the car pulled over, and this Arabic guy was stoked to give us a ride. He turned out to be this high up guy in a cell phone company in Africa, he was loaded, such a nice car. He spoke English too. We scored a free ride from an English speaking Arabic in Madagascar. Normal yeah.
Not much else is new here. 4 missionaries come this month from the MTC, 1 missionary comes in December, then I don't know after that. Malagasies come too, but I'm just counting people coming from the MTC in Provo. People come every 2 months. The investigators are slowly progressing, people learn well, but we still struggle getting people to church. Even after our good turnout last week.
Talk to you all soon, Taylor.
