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.

Random, awesome, and weird...take your pick!

On Saturday, I was riding a bus out to our third or fourth time, and I started talking to the girl next to me on the bus. I told her how my sister in America was getting married. She was shocked I wasnt there, ha. That's sick Kaesi is married now. Tanner told me that Kneaders catered the luncheon... what the heck.. that sounds amazing.

That's sick Britt is headed back out to the Pinas. I didnt even know about that. As far as Mothers day Skype. Bates and I are gonna do a split and do the call on the 13th. So we will plan on that for now.

We haven't moved yet, it will be soon though I think. I still haven't seen the house yet. The office people found one before we did, we didn't have much time to look.

Anyway, weird week. We were on our way out to work when this huge guy yells at us to come over. He's one of those guys who yells no matter what he says, and doesn't even realize he is. Their whole family is Muslim. His name is Ali and his brother is Mohamed. There are a few girls who live there too. Way cool family. They are from Diego, the Northern tip of Mada. Most of the time, Muslims dont go very far into lessons, but they seem to learn well. They love to feed us.

We have been having a weird go, we keep running into famous singers in our area. Keep in mind that being famous in Mada is like being a very modestly popular local band in Orem/Provo, but it's still cool. 

The first guy we met is named Jackie, he is a singer and works with all the way famous singers on videos and stuff. The other is a guy who is friends with the Muslim family. His name is Angelo, I am attaching a link to one of his videos. It may be cheesy, but its way good quality for Malagasy standards. He has sick hair. 

The other guy is Elder Ramahafadrohanas Dad. People always ask if he is related to the singer. We teach him too, he is the weirdest guy ever. So funny. I am attaching one of his too. He is the old guy on the left. Apparently he is in tons of big movies too.

Anyway, Lalaina is getting his patriarchal blessing and the Priesthood soon. I am so stoked for him. He is only a few weeks baptized, and just tearing it up. Hasn't missed a week since he started learning in February.

Yesterday at church was good. The whole sacrament meeting was an Easter program  (a little late?) and it was all in English. So funny, a whole choir of Gasies trying to sing in English accents. They did good, it was just really funny.

We have a baptism set for the 18th of May. Just one so far. It's the fiance of this guy that we have been teaching for about a month and a half. He is there for every lesson. It's kind of an easy shoe in baptism. He is doing everything, we just show up and teach the lessons. Her name is Mampionona. They are getting married the week after the baptism.

And... yeah. Thats all for right now. A ton of other stuff happened, but my desire to type it all is being crushed by my desire to deal with this French keyboard.
