"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."

Happy Mothers Day!

Hey everyone, quick shout out to my mom; Happy Mothers Day, love you !
Ok, now on to the rest of the week,

On Wednesday we had a great lesson with one of our recent convert
families which is doing very well right now; there names are Rado and
Hanitra. We talked abit and had a lesson about faith, honestly a very
good lesson. Then the rest of the day was spent contacting and having
no one letting us in or wanting to set up a return appointment, it
turned out to be quite a rough day.

On Thursday we had another lesson with one of our rencent converts
named Tata, he is doing well and is loving his time in the church. We
spent some more time trying to contact and again no one wanted to
listen. Honestly this is a bit of a culture shock compared to how it
was in Tamatave; everyone wanted to listen and invite us in. We then
had a lesson with Ory and his wife Voanghy on the Plan of Salvation.
The still haven't come to church but they listen and learn very well
on the things that we teach.

Friday we had a combined Zone Meeting where we heared from Elder Snow
the Church Historian along with his fellow historians Brothers Turley
and Nielson. I thought that we were going to learn about church
history but instead we learned about the way church history is run;
the things they are doing right now, things they have done, where
buildings are located and a whole bunch of different things. One thing
that Brother Turley has worked on that I am sure most of you have
heard about is "Family Search". It was really amazing to hear about
his work. Somethings that stuck out to me are 1.) We need to have the
right perspective on the work we are doing, 2.) The Temple is very
important and 3.) When the work of God begins moving along faster,
Satan increases trials and hard times; that I think is something that
we all need to remember.

On Saturday there was... Skype call! It was very nice to see my family
again and to hear their voices. It was a very special time and one
that was enjoyed by all of us. That evening we taught this young man
named T and his family about the Plan of Salvation. It was honestly
one of the best lessons on the PoS that I have ever had the pleasure
of being a part of. They listened well and had some very good
insights/ questions.

That is about it for this week everyone, good luck to you all that are
going on missions soon!
