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.

Torrential rains, Turtlenog, and Splits

Alright, Christmas is coming up finally. Everyone here celebrates Christmas, but its definitely not like home. It definitely doesn't feel like Christmas...It's way hot, no snow, plastic Christmas trees, ha, but it's pretty much the same as back home. We're headed to the office today, then to a big Christmas party in the city. For Christmas, we're going to an orphanage I think, to sing songs with the kids.

Ready for Christmas (Elder Taylor)

I hit my 6 month mark this last week. Ah.. felt so good. I heard it's the longest part, so whether or not that's true, that's what I'm telling myself. It's all uphill from here. And since I get to call home tomorrow, I might be kind of lazy to write a big detailed letter today.

Planner #4

We had a massive rain storm this last week. It rained us into the house for the night, so I had fun running around barefoot in the rain.

Got some rain

I went on splits to Ankorondrano on Friday. It's in the main city of Tana. So crowded! So freaking dirty. Oh my gosh.. I don't want to work there again ha. It was a cool place, but I realized how much more I like Analamahitsy.

We also visited a girl who had a baby on Monday morning, and gave her a donut. It's a Malagasy fomba called Rompantsa, you visit a new mother and give her a small treat and see their baby. I got a picture with them and with their new baby.

Turtlenog was very small this year, but it still happened. All of us in the house had 3 litres of eggnogg and listened to Christmas music. Very good night, but nothing compared to the old days.

Turtlenog celebration, notice my sick green ascot.

Turtlenog Prep

My foot is all good now, still growing back though. 

I'm very lazy to write a ton right now, so that's the update. I'll write for stories from this week next time I write.

Love you guys! Talk to you tomorrow!
