Wassup vazas!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHASEY-POO and MICHELE "mom" SCHROEDTER. i love you both so much and wish you the best. one bday down that i have to miss. only one to go haha chase is turning 20 and my mom is almost at 40, hitting 39 this year. i love you two :) 

How is everyone this week? and in the week previous? i do so ever deeply apologize for not sending a group message in the past preparation day here from Ambohimanarina. So yes i am in the region of capital of Madagascar but i am the furthest north to be counted in Antananarivo. i wish i could here your pronunciation of such malagasy words. i would put offensive language on here and tell you wrongs meanings but this email goes to my mtc malagasy teacher also but i love him and i know hed get a kick out of it. (bro aldous-related to the aldous's the schroed fam knows) small world. but i mean i only say appropriate words in malagasy. dont think less of me haha cant wait to yell random stuff like "door" or "shirt" in malagasy upon arrival in the united states haha 
so first things first, conference. FINALLY got to listen to the throwdown of the apostles and 70. wow it was goood stuff. my favorite talk was Bednar's. finishing off conference strong with "Come and See" freakin beautiful. if you are reading this and you arent a member and if youre reading this and you love me, listen to that talk and tell everyone about it. You need the ointment and bandages we have to offer hahaha great story. another beauty was Tad R. Callister in the Saturday afternoon. it was beautiful. go back and rewatch it if you dont remember it. we can all apply the stories within. i especially thought of caleb in the beginning story of Callisters laydown. i loved it. learned alot about helping those in need, marriage and families and revelation. i loved it. a lot packed in two days. especially since we watched saturdays 6 hours worth of broadcast within 8 hours. whoa nelly but it had never gone so fast. i love it. i hope we truly apply those principles taught. let us seek to sustain those men, not only by the raising of a hand, but by the applying and the living of the principles taught. let us attain those blessings that our rightfully ours.
hopefully i can throw some pics of the pqst couples weeks on here real quick...
but these last couple weeks have been eventful. sickness. conference. work. sickness. just know that my health right now is not at its peak and im having a couple problems. keep me in your prayers haha its nothing serious but just little annoyances you cant control but those are the worst ya? ya.
oh real quick. i was in the mission home a lot this weekend and today and i decided to look for Elder Cryers pics on the board they have of all previous and current missionaries. i found him. this is my version of facebook stalking haha Elder Matthew Tyler Cryer haha seems like a stud. small world he maried Emma Twiggs. cool beans. sorry if that was creepy. but theres your fun fact of the week.
So the pronunciation of my name gets butchered. "Scro...Scroter?" like come on dawg. haha so i say "shro-dare-ah" with a flick of the tongue on the first "r" and a silent release for that "ah" haha beautiful i know. pronunciation here is way mora mora. so phinetic (spelling on that? fa-ne-tick) lol on the irony of that. english sucks haha but i love it i guess.
other fun facts about the mish:
-i have come to believe tana is the dirtiest sight for a mission/mision home. can someone research that for me?
-this is the farthest i will ever be away from home and mission headquarters.
so some crazy food? i havent really eaten anything too crazy yet. just a lotta rice. my favorite laoka is probably henan-kisoa (rice and pig as the side). ive become accustom to cold chicken biscuits and crackers and a lot of fanta and coke. its a beautiful thing. oh and a lotta bread. they have mofo akondro (first word is bread and the second is banana) and its litterally a banana still intact with bread fried around it. havent tried it yet jus cause but i love all the bread they sell at eppiceries. for 1 thou five (1500 ariary) (about 60 cents) i got a glass bottle of coke, a roll like the ones mom handmakes, a little bowl of noodles, and two pizza bite things (about the size diameter-wise of a baseball) and it was way good. maybe i got a discount cause we bought from a members eppicery but i dont think so. was way good!
congrats to becomin bishop, now Bishop Wardinsky! thats way sick. but the names will forever be katy 3rd katy 4th and cross creek haha. true and blue. idk why i said that it just rhymed.
well my third world prob this week is...
not being able to type properly or play the guitar because your pinky nail is so long... #fombagasy #twp
well i love you all and this mission!
i pray to feel your love and support each day. i neeeeeed it for sure. i love you! stay classy! do something spiritual this week and put it on facebook or twitter or instagram
