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.

Road Trip!!

It was a way long week. On Monday and Tuesday, Webb and I ran around teaching some last few lessons, then got everything packed to go to Tana. On Wednesday morning, we all met at the other guys' house and got a taxibe that took us to Tana. We left at around 7 and got to Analamahitsy in Tana around 3:30 or so. It was a rough ride. We stopped in the middle of nowhere and the food was way cheap. I got 18 bananas for 300 ariary, they were so good, I ate them all. About an hour later it all came out on the road. I spewed pretty good.

Threw up 4 hours in

I saw Ludwig for the first time since we got in country, too. He's training. 

I saw Ludwig for the first time in 13 months

Training meeting lunch

My trainee's name is Elder Mumford. He's from West Jordan, and he is about 4 feet taller than me ha. Cool dude. We had kind of an interesting first few days, because our first day back in Tamatave, we went out with Jensen and Austin, 'cause i had to show them around Ambolomadinika.

The the next day, we had Zone Conference with President. So we didn't even get a regular day of work in together until yesterday after church.

Morley...stinkin' tired 

Mumford's doing good, just learning the ropes and getting used to the language. But he loves the people a ton, he'll get the hang of things here soon.

Oh, I forgot to mention, when we stayed the night in Tana, I went on splits with Smithson and Andrimanganoro. It was way weird being back in Tana. I won't lie, it was kind of uncomfortable. In province, we never hear anything from the capitol, like who's where or what's going on. We just live in our own little world here. So being back there was way weird. I prefer just chilling out here for sure.

By the way, whitewashing is like a missionary term. it just means that an area is getting 2 new guys at the same time, so no one can lead the area. That's why I went out with them to show them around to a lot of members houses.

Not too many people get to go to the temple. It's always a big deal when people do. The church here makes good use of the church's program to send people to the temple one time as a family, otherwise no one could afford it.

Check out pics. I'm getting a video up too. (Check out Taylor's videos on the Mission Videos link on the right).

Love you!
