WEEK 67 Ela Loatra No Efa Niandry-7 investagators at church

Transfers! So this last week I shot out a quick little email about what was going on. Transfers happened but I am still here in Fianarantsoa to train my oh so young son, Elder Passey. We went up to Tana to do some stuff for our visas and now we are back. 3 days of a lot of traveling and we are both glad to be back in our area and working.
So quick updates on investigators. We should have 4 baptisms this week if everything works out great. Vaoavy, his wife, Salohy, and Adonis's Nephew. Sadly Noelline moved away to work and she is not allowed to come to church on Sundays due to her new boss. Norianne is still waiting for her marriage papers to be finished. We visited Miora this week and she is still doing great. She came to church again this week and she stayed  for all three hours. Actually this last week we had 7 investigators at church which was awesome. But things keep on going great.
Other exiting news is that I gave a talk this week! I don't know how clear it was since it was in Malagasy but hopefully everyone got the message. I talked about Elder David A Bednar's talk from conference "If ye had Known Me" or the 4 steps to coming to a knowledge of Christ. That is actually the talk of the week on right now so go give it a look if you've got the time! But the last step is to have faith in him. I love what he talks about when he says we all accept Christ as the Son of God but do we truly believe in his power. We accept that he healed the sick but do we believe that he can still heal us. He shows us the difference between knowing and accepting Christ to Believing in Him and his Almighty Power.
That is about it for this week. Not a whole lot happening as we took a fun trip up to Tana for a couple of days but here are some pics from a branch activity!
