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' it here in Mada!!

We are getting a late start to emailing today because we went on a road trip this morning with all the guys here in Tamatave. We called a van driver to come to our house at 5 AM, and we took a two hour road trip up the coast to a beach called Foul Pointe. I think people talk it up more than it really is.. but whatever, it was fun. We played soccer and climbed some trees and got swarmed by children selling necklaces. It's such a tourist beach, but it's always fun to kick it with some malagasies.

Funny story. We teach this one family, Jeff and Natasha, and their kids. We found them tracting and they were way outgoing and cool. Their youngest kid, Stefan, is like 2 years old. We gave them a book of mormon, and stefan calls it the "bokin'i moulton" because he still hasn't learned how to say mormona ha.

It's way nice having all the guys in our house. It was fun and all being one of like 4 Americans in tamatave for 6 weeks, but it's nice to have some americans back in the house.

I went on splits with Jensen this last Friday. MTC comps back together. It was way fun. It was nice teaching together and NOT stinking at gasy like we did last time we taught together.

The training is going good. I know everyone always talks like training is the craziest thing ever.. but it's really not too different. Well.. except for some things, but it's legit.

I'm stoked that Mr Brown still tells the kids about our videos. Even after all the smack talk between us, ha.

Ah freak, we are getting snow back home? that just made me sick.. People always want to see snow, so I have a picture of me boarding with my friends and they always geek out. 

Anyway, we started a new thing this week. On the district, the mission training videos, the sisters mentioned a few times that they used a meal calendar thing with families. I mocked it my whole mission up until this point because I assumed it would never work in Africa.. but I made one and gave it a shot and we got 4 families to invite us to come teach a lesson and have dinner with them this week. Way dope. I'm for sure gonna keep doing that. We're hopefully gonna start raking in referrals. My goal is to visit all the members homes in the next few months.

Check out pictures and videos. Love ya'll.

Here is a bonus pic for ya. Just something we see all the time, ha!
