"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."

Wohoo it finally happened!

Well another good week in Ampefiloha and today (Monday) something historic happened. After being in Madagascar for 8 months I finally, Finally saw lemurs, yep it finally happened.

But on the rest of the week we did many a thing such as on Tuesday. On Tuesday we had a visit with a pretty new investigator named Haga and his wife Pierret (if I'm not mistaken that's her name) and we reviewed some things with them. They listen well but haven't yet come to church. Then we taught another newish investigator named Remy, we haven't gotten very far in the lessons but I think that he is very interested in learning but still doesn't fully understand what we are doing.

Wednesday we taught this family named Vincent, Claudia, and Toky. They are a very great family and I like them alot. Right now Toky (he is the son) is progressing the most and actually comes to church but I think that it won't be long until his dad, Vincent, begins coming to; in lessons he listens and is very attentive to what we are sharing with them. Then there is Claudia who is doing ok but I have to give her the benefit of the doubt here as she has had a rough couple of weeks. She got sick for a while so it was difficult for her to learn then in our last meeting with them she had a huge burn all along the underside of her fore arm from two saturdays ago so obviously she had a difficult time being attentive. I just hope that she is soon able to have a normal time and will recover quickly.

Thursday was a great day in the fact that we got to finally have a lesson with a less active named Sharline and the man that we needed to teach just happened to be another less active which had moved into the same little living complex as her, small world! We ended up merely reading out of the Book of Mormon with them which if nothing else will invite the spirit into that little room and begin helping them decide to return to church.

Joseph and his family are still going strong, they are progressing so well that I love every second with them. They are getting really close to baptism which, if all goes well, will be on June 20; we just need to help them prepare for the covenant and change that may soon be taking place in there lives.

That is pretty much it for this week (also today we went to a place called the "Croc Farm" and that is where I finally got to enjoy the lemurs). Have a great week everyone!
