Jun 4 - Last Transfer

Well we had just finished the second to last transfer, and it went by so fast. my transfer is that I am staying with Elder Rabeemananjaina in Amparihy, I am really excited to stay in Amparihy with Elder Rabe. I am hopping to see a few more of my investigators get baptized, also looking forward to spending more time with our recent converts.

Some really cool things that happened this past week we had a few brand new investigators come to church this past week the coolest one was Nicola he is so cool, he came to church and now he reading the Book of Mormon and searching the truth, we left Sunday with homework of him reading the Book of Mormon and searching for the truth, he works everyday this week so can't learn until next Saturday so we will see what the spirit does for him this week. One of the realizations I have had on my mission is what I say really is not all that important in the conversion of an investigator, If I don't speak the language super well like I did in Reunion, or if I say something really bold really wont effect the investigator too much. But what will affect him is if he feels the spirit, if he gets a confirmation that what I say is true, If he himself is searching for the truth and desires to find it. That is what really effects them. I hope this week he has a great week with the Book of Mormon and the spirit I will continue calling him this week to remind him but I am looking forward to what he feels and learns personally this week. On Saturday I imagine our lesson will be a little bit of a question and answer but mostly just talking about what he learned and felt from the things he read. Please pray for him to be able to hear the spirit.

I love this mission, things are going great! I could talk about 30 other investigators just like Nicola. I love the work I am doing. Be safe and have fun this week

May 28 -ka bosaka rehe kah

Well this week was another fantastic week in paradise.
This past week we had some great lessons with Anje and Jean Eva. Our lesson with Anje resulted in him telling us that he knows the church is true, if he lived in another country or city where he had no friends or family he would leave his church altogether but because of his circumstances and his family it is so difficult to leave his church, he feels so alone. He expressed his fear of not following God but also "betraying his family and friends". He has got a difficult situation to deal with. We gave him some homework to read in Alma when Alma gives his sons counsel on trusting in God even when the future is uncertain. He really is so torn, and feels very alone, nothing we can say will give him the comfort he needs it is just him and God.
Jean Eva had another great lesson, we taught him the law of chastity and he accepted it and said "yeah it is going to be very difficult to keep our thoughts clean at all times but I sure will try". We also told him that he has to be legally married to his wife before he can get baptized. And then he said "Wow, can't I get baptized and then get married, is that OK?" He knew it wasn't OK so he told us he and Mina, his wife, were going to seriously think about it and then the next time we meet they will tell us the verdict.
Life is going great here in the Indian ocean I love this work and the joy I receive from it surpasses all other things.

May 21 - langosta

Well this week was great, lot of cool lessons and some other great things happened. Highlights of the week are our lesson with Justain, when we taught him we talked about the Book of Mormon and how it will change his life in so many aspects. He will draw closer to Christ, receive temple blessings, and you will know that this church is the true church and with that knowledge your life will change forever. We read a little of it with him and talked about how he knows the book is true and why he should desire to search for the truth. At the end of the lesson he told us he already knows the church is true because it is logical and just is clear. But I will read it to get a confirmation of what I already know. He then accepted a bap date for the 30 of June and is ready to all he can to prepare for that date and come to receive a strong testimony about the church and Christ and the truthfulness of our message. We are so excited to be teaching him and many others that are the same as him. 

I love it here and am so happy to be here in madagascar!!!!

May 14 - Happy Mothers Day

Well Happy Mothers Day everyone this week was wonderful we had a lot of success this week tracting with our free time we tracted into a new family, who the fathers name is Justain and sure enough they came to church and have a great understanding of our message and are ready for it to change their lives forever, it is going to be an incredible journey for them. I am so excited to see all of there progression.

also on Sunday Anje came to church again and we had a great time with him there. He had great questions that involved our whole class of investigators. He made it very clear that he knew the answers to the questions but he wanted to make sure that it was clear to all of our investigators. He then bore an incredible testimony to all of the people in attendance of the truthfulness of our message. It was way cool.

I am loving my time here in Fort Dauphin.  We are seeing a ton of miracles as we work hard and trust in the Lord.

May 7 - miasa mafy vao mikaly

Well this week was great, work is still going great.

This past week we found a pretty cool new investigators from English class. Method and Bruno are the new investigators that we found from English class. We taught them this past week and they understood us great and are actually super interested in it. These are some of the few cool investigators from english class. They came to church and are progressing really well I am excited to see how they progress. We have been praying to find new investigators with the little bit of time that we have and we found them and they are free right in our schedule. We are finding so much success in our work. I have loved it.

We had one of my last zone conferences this past week, I loved it I look up to President Foote so much and aspire to be like him one day. I have loved my mission and all of the wonderful experiences I have had on my mission.

Apr 30 - What a Great Week

This week was wonderful. This week we had another baptism. It was beautiful to see the people enter into the church. This week we had some great lessons as well. I would say that defiantly the highlight of the week were the baptisms. I don't know if I have talked about Anje but he has just comeback from Tana and came to church for the first time this past week, and he contributed and had a great time.

We had a great baptism this Saturday one of our investigators Juvain got baptized and he was so happy it was a great experience, I am sorry I am not super good with my words I am trying my best to be a good missionary, I am LOVING my time here and am sad to see the time going so fast. I can't express my love for these people I am so grateful to work here with these people, Me and my companion are getting along great it is fun to work with him. I am excited to see the wonderful things we can accomplish this transfer as we work together

Apr 23 - 26+4

Well this week was great! We are preparing for our next baptisms, on this Saturday. I am so happy to be able to be a missionary at this beautiful time. There is a lot of cool things that have happened this past week, Jeaneva and Mina continue to progress and grow and it will take a little bit more time for them to come to know and be ready to follow Jesus Christ and get baptized. the work with Elder Rabemanajaina is going good, a little bit different, but good. I am sorry not a whole lot of time this week.

Don't forget that God works in the little details in our life. I know He is there and He loves us.
