"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."

Baptisms in Fianarantsoa

G'day everyone, sorry that I wasn't able to get a letter out this last week but it's a new week and I am ready to go!

Right now our area is going great, right now we are teaching this brother and sister with their friend whose names are Adonis, Noriana, and Chantal. Adonis has been learning with us for the last little while and had introduced us to his sister and they have all been learning together for the last few. Now I really love this little family, they all listen and strive to comprehend the lessons and Noriana  came to church after out first lesson with her, she is just amazing. Our last time with them we learned about Joseph Smith and it was such an amazingly spiritual lesson. At the end I just had this persistant thought in my mind that I needed to ask these people to be baptised and as soon as I did both Noriana and Chantal straight away accepted, these people are amazing.

Jerry's sisters, Sabrinoska and Salohy continue to be great; we had an entire lesson devoted to answering the quesitons that they had from reading the Plan of Salvation pamphlet.

Also speaking about Jerry, he was baptised by Elder Schnoor this past Saturday! I had the privilage of playing a few songs on the piano for the service. Then that afternoon we had a branch activity way out in ambala (this dialects word for ambanivohitra) but everyoneended up having a great time (we did get stranded out there at night though, there was no more room in the cars so we just walked back with some members which was way fun).

That might have to be it, this week though we are going to be heading up to Antsirabe for zone conference! So expect lots of pictures! Love you all!
Elder Nelson
