Feb 13th - First Talk In Church And Two Baptsims

Well, so many things happened this past week in the best area in madagascar. First off we had some awesome investigators get baptized on Saturday, both named Miora, one of the husbands missed his baptism because he still has a problem with drinking, but will be getting baptized in 3 weeks, if he is ready. On Sunday Miora came up to me and said that she wanted me to give her the Holy Ghost in Sacrament meeting, and I still am not fully comfortable with all the words for that so I was pretty nervous.... so I did what had to be done...I went and told her that I didn't know how to do that but I will totally stand in the circle and will still give her the holy ghost but not say the blessing, she seemed ok with it, but was a little kivy. I will be studying that hard this week in language study. also a funny story, so before church we went to go and pick up zaka and his family to bring them to church and only 2 people could come with us, the rest had left and gone out of town. They were both 18 year old girls, we had to walk like 30 minutes with these two girls. It was way funny, we had Malagasies saying there the Vahsas go with there wives. Haha it was pretty funny, next time we will have a member go pick them up. Also I gave my first talk in church yesterday, which was way cool, definitely thankful for the gift of tongues, because it was way clear and a good job. I got a lot of complements, which was a great confidence boost. also used the same method used for my farewell talk. Nothing written down just off the spirit. I figured that the people need the gospel so Heavenly Father had to bless me this time... lucked out big time. Talked about repentance which was great because I was ale to talk to the investigators about it after the meeting.

We were able to teach this woman who is a new investigator named "soaholy" about the life after death because her brother died right before we got to her house, It was a great lesson and was exactly what she needed to hear. She told us after that she always had hoped that there was a life after death. I also have been teaching these kids that live by our house to read. There names are Miguelke and Vonje, Butthose are hard to Remberat first so I gave them the names "wyatt" and "Dawson" I love these 2 boys like brothers that is why I named them after the 2 brothers I love most. It has been a big eye opener to see just how blessed we are because we are able to read, something you don't think about all the time but that we are truly blessed to live in a place where everyone can read.

That is what I got for the week, thank you for the prayers.
