"And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."

So, here we are again, another week in Toamasina/ Tamatave

This week has just been hard, whether it has been hard lessons, or the day is just physically exhausting I am just so tired by the end of the day but it was not in vain, Elder Anderson and I have just been building an awesome program.

We have an investigator named Elisette who just one day randomly showed up at church, we got her number, started teaching her, and she has not missed a single day of church for almost a month and a half. That in itself is very amazing because most people we teach don't come (and a few are coming to the point where we may need to drop them because they do not come to church and have stopped progressing; that is always a sad day). But the cool thing about Elisette is that when she heard that we were having baptisms this week she wanted to know when she can also hatao batisa (be baptized) and she was very bummed when we told her that she could not be baptized in February (she really pushed for that) but we kindly told her that she would have to wait a bit longer because there is still more for her to learn. She even told our member help that she is ready to be baptized and I think so to but we need to just stay patient and ensure that everything is learned.

This week while tracting we found this just ballin' group of threeish families near the canal in our area. They just let us in, we talked, go to know them, they all seemed very interested, we started teaching about God but we just ended up discussing faith and describing/ explaining the faith is like a little seed story in Alma 32; I really enjoyed going there and we are most definetaly going back.

This past Sunday (yesterday) was transfer news and I will continue working in Morarano with Elder Anderson. Elder Ahlstrom from the house is going to Tana to work in the Office and Elder Tiu from my group is coming up from Tana, we are going to have such a great time.

I think that is it i believe for this week write you all in a week, amanaraka indray (next time)

-Elder Nelson

ps I almost forgot but we will be having two baptisms this week and one of our investigators named F asked me to baptize her so ya that is all, bye bye
