Sept 26th - Tsara Herinandro

This was a great week, so much to talk about. First off on Tuesday we were able to talk to some less actives and leave them with a vatsin pani (spiritual thought) I gave it to them and bore my testimony and let them know that the Savior loves them and they came to church on Sunday. I was so happy to see them there, on Wednesday we went to a far part of our area where the beach is and got to talk to a bunch of people who live on the beach, one of them being Angelo who has been taking lessons from the missionaries for a long time and is finally getting baptized. He will be getting baptized in November. On Thursday it rained hard and of course it was the day I left my umbrella so I got soaked but it was way cool to see how much it rains here in Madagascar. We also got our bike fixed so we are cruising around on bikes now. Before we would take these things called "pus pus" which are bikes with little seats attached to the back of them and you pay like 1000 ari and they will take you anywhere. It probably looks pretty funny having this huge white guy being pulled by this tiny Malagasy, the pus pus drivers are probably100 pounds maybe if that. On Friday I went on a split with one of the Zone Leaders and that was awesome to receive help from him, his name is Elder Reynolds and he’s from New Zealand. He is super funny and way nice. We were able to find a family that was super receptive to the gospel and we made an appointment to head back tonight at 7 so I am super excited for this family. We also had some other crazy experiences with some drunks that were super funny. There was a drunk guy who was chasing us and was trying to pee on us. The Malagasy people are really gutsy when they are drunk. On Saturday I taught English and me and my companion got split up for this. I was in charge of teaching the more skilled English class, my companion was in charge of the ones that were just barley learning English. We started class and I was answering questions like what does this "English” word mean in Malagasy. Then a guy in the back said what “treetops” in Malagasy is. I drew a picture of a tree and then explained it with the little vocabulary I have. He said he understood so we moved on, he then asked what does gliding mean in Malagasy I explained it, then he asked what does ecosystem mean and I explained it. He kept asking questions like that over and over finally I asked where all these words were coming from, how this Malagasy knew all of these words? He pulled out a National Geographic Magazine that had a ton of words like that circled, hahaha I thought it was so funny.

Last night we taught a family that lived in a bamboo hut above another bamboo hut and this family had 6 kids in one family so a pretty big family. The oldest boy loves the church but only has one pair of clothes that are really dirty and ripped up, no shoes and so he doesn’t come to church. Last night we gave him a Book of Mormon and he was so happy that we had given him the Book of Mormon. We are going to see if he reads the book and wants to be baptized.

I love Madagascar I don't really love the language right now but I do love the people and the country. Thank you for all of your prayers.
