Jacob 6:2 And the day that he shall set his hand again the second time to recover his people, is the day, yea, even the last time, that the servants of the Lord shall go forth in his power, to nourish and prune his vineyard; and after that the end soon cometh.

Cutest video ever!

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.

More cute kids!

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.

Letters from Elder Moulton:

Family video chat, Holidays, and Transfers...oh my!

Oh my gosh, you have no idea how good it as to get to talk to everyone on Wednesday!
Christmas Skype!!

New Years is coming up in... 6 hours for us. Which means there'll be a whole lot more drunk people wanting to talk to us, yes!

This past week was definitely one of the longest weeks I've ever had on the mission. Christmas already seems like an eternity ago. So I'll just go over that real quick.

Christmas Eve, everyone from our zone met at the Stake Center in Tsaralalana for a white elephant, and a movie, and a ton of food. I saw Elder Steele there, for the first time in country, he's the AP now, go figures ha. I won a sick little photo holder, I stole it from Elder Taylor, and he won a Santa Claus outfit, he was pretty distraught haha.

Christmas Day, our district rode all the way out to Ambohimangarova again (Lemur Park area) and we walked around for a few hours, hiking around, singing Malagasy Christmas songs for anyone who would listen. Most people just stared at us awkwardly, they were so confused. But anyone who would listen the whole time was awarded with a moofball (a ball of fried dough) everyone loves those things, they're tasty.

Transfer news came on Christmas Eve. Morgan is working in Fort Dauphin now, and my new comp, Adam Landon, came up from Antsirabe. He's in the same MTC group as Morgan. He's from Vegas, cool guy, nice guy. He's a stinking hard worker.. I'm kind of getting my butt kicked out here, ha.

Just with all the hussle of everything and the holidays this week, it felt like a way long week. It was definitely a very relaxing ride home in the taxi last night, knowing that the next day was P-Day.

It was time for a new pillow!

Broke down, got a mosquito net.

Today, for Taylor's 2nd to last P-Day, me, Landon, Taylor, Hamm, Hansen, and Horne, rode way the freak out to a mountain in Tanjombato. I'd never been out there before, but it was way far. We hiked to the top of this mountain, and there was this weird like.. science village. Lot's of science art and little statues and houses. I took lots of pictures. And I hied the whole thing barefoot, mainly because I miss hiking barefoot, but also because I was running across a way sketchy valamparia (the little paths through rice paddies) and slipped and got bright orange mud all over my crappy Vans.

Eating at Ginger Chicks, with Elder Taylor stressing out in the background.

That's about the update for now. Our area is going really slow, so the next little while will be a lot of rebuilding and working out all the problems in the area, fun stuff huh?

Talk to you soon! Thanks for all the support! It means a lot, keep praying for me please, I love you!


PS. My toe is gettin' better!
