"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."

P-Day Fun!

Miharaba anao ireo ny tenako! Haha, manao azafady aloha izaho fa taraika be ity email ity fa izany dia noho ny famangian'i Filoha Foote anay taty tamin'ny omaly!

Hey everyone! We have had a great week but this letter is going to have to be very short, as you can see I am writing this late but that is because President Foote visited us yesterday and wanted to do an activity which pretty much took all day, it twas a blast! We cleaned/ dug tree rings around a bunch of little trees at a members in Manandona and played a lot of basketball with President and the APs.

One thing from this week is that we have a great family of investigators named Jean Louis and Nirina. We have been teaching them for about 4 weeks now and they are just amazing. We taught them about the Word of Wisdom this past week and they just accepted it, and had even been trying to get off their addictions for awhile now. An amazing thing about them (I wasn't there, split) is that the day or so before knocking on their house for the first time Nirina had actually prayed to know wat church to join. Then the next day or so we are walking and I think "you know, we have never actually gone up this path, wonder what is up there" so we went and found one of the most amazing families that I have ever seen!

This past Sunday I had that great opportunity to interview four people for baptism, two I had done before which have now passed (yay!) and two others that still have some things to clear up before being baptized but I have 100% confidence that they will pass in the near future!

We are have a blast down here and the work is going so well, I feel so blessed to be able to work here during all of this growth and I am just so excited to see what will happen soon in the future!

izay no email kely azoko natolotra fa ny foko manolotra azy no zava-dehibe
(polite way of ending a short yet important thing such as a talk, presentation, or this email:)

Have a great week everyone!
