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.
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.

We had been told early on when Taylor first started having physical problems (about a year or so ago) that his inflammation levels looked like he may possibly have Rheumatoid Arthritis. It runs in both sides of our family, so we thought it may be so. When Taylor returned, we took him to be tested for overall health and RA. He had some low levels in his general health that were easily treated with vitamin supplements, but even though he had such high inflammation levels (so high that they are only typically seen in RA sufferers), his RA results came back negative! We are so grateful for that!!
The doctor's only reasoning behind the high inflammation levels could be that they were possibly caused by the parasites that Taylor had. As Taylor left his mission, he was given the routine parasite treatment. After a month or so, Taylor was feeling great.
He has been working for the past month on an upcoming feature film as the production assistant for the camera crew. It was nice for him to get back into film work of some type. He is excited to continue with that, find some more film related work (wedding videos, feature movies, etc), and start his schooling in cinematography.
Thanks so much for your love and support for Taylor. We all appreciate it so much!!
