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.

A house full of Malagasies, and exploring our new area!!

I put up a cute new video...just click on the youtube link "Mission Videos" at the bottom of the right-hand column to check it out.

It's a pretty weird adjustment living in the same apartment, but working in a new area. I love Tamatave so much, I'm excited to get to know both branches. A lot of people we visit are already people I've met at church, so it's not too rough of an adjustment in that aspect. But I'm still really sad to have left Ambolomadinika when we were just starting to get it going so well. If there's any place I would want to see again someday after my mission... Tamatave. I could live here. That's an exaggeration, but I love it.

Reinhard got sent off to Ambositra this last week. Just him and a Malagasy, it's a 2 man province. We have 4 Malagasies in our house now, and me and Webb. And the other house has 3 Malagasies. It's a very Malagasy zone right now.

Rakotomalala's first p-day in Tamatave

We do street contacting like crazy right now in the new area. We've got some time to fill, so we just contact and contact nonstop. It's pretty different going from having a Malagasy comp to having a brand new missionary comp. It was nothing but Malagasy for 6 weeks straight, I loved it. Webb is a cool guy, everyone has to go through the stinky phase of not knowing the language, but he's getting it. And yeah, he and I are doing the last 6 weeks of the training program now.

And yeah...we definitely have 3 hours of church. YM/YW.. I don't think that happens. But they do have activities with all the youth and single adults every once in a while. This Saturday, the whole district in Tamatave is doing Mormon Helping Hands and we are going to clean up the beach. Hopefully it's just a trashy beach and not the one full of human poop we went to that one time.

And what else is new.. we ride bikes now. It's alright, except for the whole helmet hair. But other than that, it's really not that different from the last area. I took pictures with a lot of people I was teaching in Ambolomadinika. Enjoy...
