Manahuana ny Fianikaviko!
are picking up here in the MTC. So since last time, we have started
teaching our investigators with no notes! It's crazy but really cool. We
really have to listen to the promptings of the spirit. The language is
difficult because all of the words are so similar, like sakafo. If you
say it one way then you are saying food but if you say it another way
then it comes out to be cat heart... So we have blessed many cat hearts.
Also the verbs are strange. Every single verb starts with an m and has a
bunch of a's in it. Funny story when we were teaching our investigator
my companion was trying to say the apostles were killed (mamono) but he
said the apostles were breastfed (manono)! Our investigator started
laughing and asking if that was right and my companion had no idea and
was like yea yea it happened. Luckily I corrected him haha.
had a pretty cool speaker this Tuesday. It was the General Primary
President! Pretty cool to hear her speak and she told some really good
stories. We have been hearing more and more stories about Madagascar
from our teacher and he has been showing us pictures which makes us all
want to go now! I absolutely can't wait even though it’s fun here. Oh
and thank you so much for the packages! It is the best thing in the
world getting a package card. And also the dear elder thing messages
everyone sends are freakin sweet. Tell Bryson that I love the Rubik’s
cube! We have this kid in our zone that can do it super-fast so he
loved it and started doing it right away. Last night he did it in 21
seconds! I am staying healthy but others are getting sick. But, I am
still doing good.
So to answer some questions I got, I’ll tell
you a little more about my companion. His name is Elder Heo and he is
super cool. He did a year at BYU Provo but before that he lived in
California! Right by Magic Mountain! Pretty cool. Every time he gets a
good idea he throws his hands up and says, "REVELATION!!!" so that's
what we do now hahaha. Really awesome to have a cool companion. We hang
out a lot with the Malays (other guys in our zone) because they are
super cool. I just found out recently that everyone in our zone is a
freakin genius! They all have scholarships and things to schools with
really good grades and really high scores on tests!
have been going really well here. Language is hard but it is getting
better. I’ll send some pictures of my district and some of the guys in
our zone. Tell everyone I miss them! Love them all! The spirit is felt
everyday very strongly. I learn about and feel God's love every day. My
testimony is being strengthened in English and Malagasy! It is very
apparent that this is the Lord's work being done here. I am so grateful
that I get to be a part of it. Fantatro fa marina ny Bokin i Mormona.
