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.

Another week flies by...

First of all, I'm way jealous of that huge storm that went down. I for sure would've been right out in the middle of that. That stinks for the people who got flooded, though.

Last weeks excursion to Ivoloina wasn't too far, it was like 15 kilometers all together. I was on a split with Horman (the zl) on wednesday and we had to bike way far away to do some stuff for when President comes. We biked like 12k then, too. We bike so much now. I prefer just walking and teaching close to the house, that's how most of our program is, but I like getting out and going to new spots on P-Days.


Yeah Morgan extended cuz his parents are coming to pick him up. Extending is an option sometimes, I don't really know how it works.

Um, so what else is new. I've found in the past month that my road rage hasn't gone away. Traffic back home was always my weakness, immediate anger. It's the same on the bikes. Getting stuck behind a crowd of slow bikers.. My road rage is just as bad as it was at home in the car ha. Hopefully I can learn to control that here soon.

My favorite thing about the mission so far.. Good question. It's hard to sum up the past 15 months like that.. but my favorite thing, probably learning Malagasy. It's an awesome language, and getting to know these people in their own language. Almost no foreigners learn the language because all Malagasies that learn in school are required to take French. So people just assume that Malagasies will learn their language, but not many people will learn Malagasy. So getting to know these people in their own language and actually seeing the real culture, not just the tourist spots from a tour bus.. That's been my favorite.

Lesson with the branch pres and the Caron's

Things in the area are still going good. Transfer news comes next Sunday night, so I'll let you know the changes coming to Toamasina next week.

The Malagasies pic in the ghost outfits last week...I don't know what the point of that was, they were trying to scare us when we walked in the door, but we just stared at them weirded out, the whole idea didn't really work, but they tried. Points for effort.

Love you!
