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.

200 days in...

Alrighty, sadly, the holidays are over, which means the holiday Milkshake Menu at Coffee Times will be disappearing. But I guess there's always next year. New Years was extremely low key compared to back home, we stayed out late enough to see a few small fireworks, but we had to head home. 

Stoked for the New Year, haha

Happy New Years

Holidays here are good, but Malagasies don't really get into holidays here that much. I guess Easter and their independence day are huge, but those won't be for a few months.

Fun little story to kick off the letter: So right now, a ton of people are harvesting rice. And when they are done smacking all of the rice out of the little chutes, they just throw the chutes on the ground. So there is a TON of straw all over the place, huge piles. So the other day, me and a bunch of kids in Manjaka took turns running to the top of this little cliff, and tumbling off into the pile of dry straw. It was way fun, we even got some of their pet dogs in on the fun, ha. Needless to say, with the mix of dry plants, and animal fur, my allergies were ablaze.

Elder Landon with a bunch of members/investigators

Like I said last week, our area is a little shot, but we've been working hard this week to get more times. Working with members a lot, and getting a lot of RCLA's (Recent Converts, Less Actives) on the program. Our ward has a lot of those, so that's kind of our focus, teach some diligent investigators, but focus on bringing people back that were already baptized. In the past week, we've noticed that almost every less active has the same thing in common. They all stopped coming because they got offended by someone else. We've been teaching a TON of repenting and forgiveness lately, and hopefully soon we'll see something come of all of it. 

Another thing we've been doing lately is watching The Restoration with investigators. It's such an awesome video, helps explain the first lesson so much better than we can. We're hoping to keep that going.

Our area is still a work in progress, and hopefully we have some cool things to share here soon, but until then, I'll try to keep a good load of pictures up.

Talk to you soon!
