Tsisy Kabary

Hey hey everybody! Karakory! Ino kabary e! Tsa dia misy aty, fa mbola traboina izahay. Fa mbola salama tsara, tsy manahy izany.

Now that you understood all of that I'll get into my week :) So surprisingly enough we're not getting much rain anymore. It hasn't hardly rained at all this week and still everywhere is flooded. That's the big story here. And I don't know who did this whether it was the red cross or what, but a lot of people have been given tents to live in until the water has subsided in their houses. We were in one house that wasn't flooded anymore, but you could see how high the water was when you looked at the wall. It was as high up as their beds and everything. It's crazy to see what the people go through here! I guess this has been a pretty unusual year for this. But it looks like we're coming out of it! Plus it's starting to get very cold here at nights. So yeah, there's your REAL weather update, in case weather channel tells you otherwise.

The work here is still going a little bit slow. We do quite a bit of tracting and we've found some solid people. We usually have good luck finding, but when we come back they're almost never there so we have to do some more finding. But hopefully we'll get some luck with retaining them this week. While going and finding people can sometimes be a little mandreraka, it's actually been fun meeting and talking to new people. This week we found this guy who looked exactly like Bob Marley and, mazava ho azy, he was completely wasted. But he took us to his house and he showed us that he had a Book of Mormon! Kinda random. And he was always having a hard time remembering if we spoke Malagasy or French, so he just kept going back and forth. So we set up a time with him for when he wouldn't be drunk, so hopefully he won't be but I guess we'll see. We also tracted into a protestant guy, but then his adventist friend showed up... I learned that night that it's not even worth it to discuss things in the Bible with them. Way too hard headed. You pull out a Book of Mormon and immediately you would be asked to leave. So yeah. Let's see... We also had stake conference which wasn't too exciting. We all just met up in a huge building and people gave cute little talks about missionary work and family history. Got to see a lot of people from Ampitatafika and Itaosy so that was pretty cool to catch up with some of them. Other big news besides that was the transfers. Here there's been some pretty big drama about it all with people spreading rumors and such to the point where it's gotten out of hand I guess. I didn't even really care because I already knew I'd be training still. But some pretty interesting things happened. Two of the elders in our house, Elder Price and Elder Evans are both heading out. Evans is going to Tana north zone and Price in Tamatave, the lucky guy! And we'll be getting two Rwandan Elders in the house. And from what I've seen, they're not very good and English. Plus they're very quiet. So... It's going to be interesting. We'll just have to see how it all goes. As for me, 6 more weeks of 67ha. I can do it!

Other than that, not much kabary going on here. Today we played basketball and volleyball with all the missionaries in Tana and I balled all them up. Bought a few things in 67ha and now we're here! Don't have much time before we gotta go hit the streets, but everything is going well here still and I'm loving life. I love you all so much! Have an awesome week. Tiako ianareo indrindra!!
