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.

Lovin' the life!!

The weather never changes here. I can't wait to go lie in the snow during my first blizzard back home. The heat is way dope for the first like.. few months in country. Then a year goes by and it's like.. "okay, it's a little old now." Oh well.

President came to Tamatave this week to do interviews and to do some training with all the branch presidents. We only got to see him on Tuesday morning for our interview, then in the evening for a meeting. But it was good to talk to him and Sis Adams for a while. Ha, it takes like twice as long to get anything across during meetings in this country because the speaker always has to pause so we can translate for the Malagasies, and so Sis Adams can translate for a French couple here.

So Tamatave is way Islamic. It's all over, not sure why I never mentioned it before. But we are teaching a Muslim family now. It's always interesting teaching them, we have to figure out a whole new approach to the lessons. Luckily most everyone here is way chill, no one here ever likes to bash really. Back in Tana we got it all the time.

Also, this past Friday, Pikar and Alexis, two Young Men from Ambolomadinika showed up at the house and wanted to come help us. So they came out with us all day. Such studs. I put up a video. They look way young but Pikar is actually 17. He's a pro at all the lessons, we even got him and Alexis to do some tracting.

Pikar (17) helping us tract

During our tracting experience, we got into a WAY nice house. You can always tell how rich someone is in this country by their couches. Most well off people will buy couches that look really fancy, but when you sit on them it's way stiff. But the really rich people have squishy couches. So you know they're legit, ha. So they had us come in, and after talking for a little bit, they told us that their mom has a devil and hasn't been able to walk very well for 2 years and is really sick. They wanted us to do an exorcism, it's weird how used to hearing that we get. People always ask us for exorcisms. We told them we don't do that, but we could give a blessing. So we did that and we're going back tomorrow. So we'll see what happens ha. People here are obsessed with that stuff. Everyone thinks their house is haunted or they have a devil.

Our two lunch and dinner spots are getting way good at our orders. We literally get the same thing every day. I don't even have to order anymore. I ride up on my bike and make eye contact with the girl up front and she already has it on it's way. The girls there are pro.

We've been finding lots of cool families lately. The countless hours of tracting has been starting to pay off.

Check out pictures, love you.

This is what the kids wear for a while after they get circumcised. Hilarious.


We got fed a ton this week for some reason, it was dope

Eating dinner with some members


PS: My clothes are doing fine. I'm not planning on bringing most of them home though. I figure I'll just give away all the shirts and socks and pants before I leave, people here would love them and it wouldn't be worth bringing them home since they have gotten a little worn.
