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.

Service, Searching, and Teaching...sums it up!

Helping Hands last Saturday was sick. Not too planned out, but we're still learning ha. All the branches met at the beach at 8, and we had our little motivational speech. One of my favorite parts of the speech was when the guy talking was like "Alright everyone, remember to do good today, Jesus loved the beach." Can't argue with that I guess.

We spent a few hours picking up trash at the beach and putting it in big piles. I was kind of wondering what we were gonna do with all the trash, since Mada doesn't have an organized land fill or trash system or anything, people just bury it. Which is of course what we did, we just dug way deep holes and torched what was dry and buried the rest, ha. We smoked the heck out of that beach, it was so funny. The news came and filmed it. I got nice and red from it.

Branch President of Ambolomadinika's family. They make us corn with coconut every week.

Burning our garbage

So our finding has been going way good the past week or so. We've only been knocking on the really nice houses lately, looking for families with people that work. It was kind of scary at first when I tried it in my first area, but luckily it's gotten pretty routine. We also have had some classic slams in the face. It makes me laugh. This one guy opens the door and gets way scared when we knock, so we've gone back like 3 times just to see him slam the door on us over and over. He never lets us get a word out ha.

Yeah, the new area is huge, but we are looking for new people close to the church, gotta get them centers of strength. I figure if we go way far, the odds of people walking all the way to church aren't too high, but if it's close to their house, they're more likely to come. So aside from the way diligent people who already do walk way far every week, we stick close to the church when we find.

One family this week has become one of my favorite families just after a few lessons. The dad, Gerard, made Webb and I some way good chocolate coconut ice cream from scratch. We watched him break open the coconut, shred the meat, and wring the juice out of it. He's gonna teach us how to make it this week.

At church, we finally got everyone to watch the world broadcast they did back home a month or so ago. And we introduced auxilary meetings, they've never done them before. So hopefully we can help them get that organized. We get to attend the first few times to help them figure it all out.

The training is really not even a big deal. Webb's a big boi, he just asks me questions when he needs vocab, but he knows what's going on. We just follow this little program during comp study, but other than that, he's good to go.

I haven't gotten the last package yet, we never hear about mail or anything unless it's already been sent to Tamatave. So if it's in the office, I don't know yet. But they're good about sending them out of the office quick.

Check out pictures. Love you.
