"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."

New families and going a lot to the office

Ok sorry but this week is going to have to be shorter, I am running abit short on time this week.

Monday we took it slow and walked around, got a hair cut, went to ShopRite, and got to work in the evening. Unfortunately the people that we had set a time with were unable to meet with us or in other words they were not home. It was a bit of a bummer but it happens sometimes.

Tuesday we went out early because of our english class in the afternoon and I am so glad that we did because we found this awesome new family to teach. Their names are Solofo, Angeline, Marcelline, and Raymond. Raymond and Marcelline are Solofo's parents while Angeline is his wife. They learned very well and participate a suprising amount. We focused mostly on the Apostasy and on the importance of living Apostles and Prophets. Then that afternoon we had english and it was just a great time. We made a super hero smackdown with an accompaning bracket where everyone got a super hero/villan name (superman, spiderman, doc oc, ect) and they dueled it out. We had some 20 people there and everyone just got way into it and had a blast.

Wednesday was super good as we were able to teach a new investigator, meet with Cedric and Landy (they are super cool) and we ended the day meeting with Alex and Nalia. We had chosen to learn about grace, and how it connects with conversion and repentance. We extended an invitation to church but they said that they would tell us their decision on Saturday.

Friday we wre at the office all day, blegh. We had a meeting with the bishopric and the recent converts in the ward but it started late and when it ended it had gone way long. Then after that we met with our Ward Mission Leader named Kennedy and discussed the progress of the work that we were doing.

Saturday we were again at the office but this time for interiews with President Foote which was just so fun. President Foote is a great person to talk with and is just so full of energy. We got out to work and again ended our day with Alex and Nalia.We changed our lesson last second to a lesson on faith and I believe that is what was needed. They still have not yet come back to church but I feel that progress was made.

Sunday we had had Kennedy show us an area that we had never been in before and the members that lived there which will help us alot in the future. Then as it was getting dark we decided to visit Solofo's family again and it was just amazing. While Solofo was not there even more family members were and they all wanted to learn. It was again so fun teaching them as they all participate well. We felt that we should go through Joseph Smith as they were just eating everything up and it seems that they all understood what was taught, now we will see if it will lead them to make changes in their lives.

That is about it everyone, have a great week! Mazoto a ianareo rehetra!

Elder Nelson

Also I sent some pictures of the end of my time in Ampefiloha, our DMP wanted to feed us as one of us would be leaving, it was so good! Then I have a few pictures of Elder Pinson and a video of our last english class (it is a bit long but it was super fun)

This video is of their Super Hero Smack Down.  It's just over 27 minutes long.  Enjoy if you watch, but you might want to make popcorn first!
