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.

What can I say? This place is awesome!!

Well, the power still stinks. We went another two days strong without power this week. It's way fun. I love showering and eating by candlelight every night. Just kidding, it was fun the first time, then it got old immediately. But good news, the power company said everything is running good for now. So we should have a few days of peace this week. That'll be nice.

Marsh and I have gotten way into this game that all the kids here love. It's called kanety (marbles). It's just with regular marbles, but it's way harder than any game that Americans have made up with marbles. We get our trash kicked, but we practice on our own and at home now. I have some videos, but they won't load, just wait til I get home I guess, ha sorry.

Oh, so one of my favorite families here in the branch has a daughter on a mission in Ogden. I think it covers part of Idaho and Northern Utah. I would tell you to go find her, but that might be kind of hard. I love her family so much though, we go play games with them every Sunday night.

Playing games with members. I lost!

Oh, we ate at their house on Wednesday too, they had us over for dinner. Marsh and I brought the guitar and played for them. I thought you guys would like that since I never played for people before. It was way fun. I miss my guitar!

We got pulled into teaching at church again. We kind of expect it now. They don't really have a teaching schedule worked out here yet. There's still a lot they don't have figured out, but it's all good. Marsh and I have noticed how good you get at pulling a lesson out at the last minute on a mission. We teach every single day, so when someone just throws a lesson at us unexpected, we've gotten pretty good at just opening the book and teaching for like 45 minutes. They tried to get us to teach the third combined hour as well, but luckily we got one of the JAS to do it.

We live in a 6 man house, but it's still just 2 people per area. There are only one or two areas in the mission that have 4 missionaries. But for the most part, the church is too small here to have more than 2 missionaries per branch/ward. We all have our own areas. We just live together. It is pretty crazy though that missionaries back home can be over like a whole stake, or bigger, and all we focus on here is our little branch and that's it.

The budget here is fine. We go to Shoprite once a week and stock up. There's not much, just really simple stuff. So sometimes we just eat out at a rice place. We do fine though, don't run out of money or anything. This place has even less resources than the capitol, so there's not a lot to choose from, but we do fine.

I'm not gonna worry about asking Sister Adams about protein. We don't have a gym here anyways so I'll just get fat if I use it. We just run and do stuff around the house, but not enough to start taking protein for. I just eat peanut butter and call it good.

Thanks for writing! Love you, talk to you next week.


More pics to enjoy...

These little guys like to chill at our house...

It doesn't dry up
