Karakory? Inona no kabary? 
thats a lil tenin'mahajanga for ya. its nothing special or too different, just the accent really. i love it. so! a little about this week. (no pictures im sorry. my card reader shows up empty when i stick it into the computer. dumb) so this past monday we had an amazingly spiritual experience with the Priesthood. we had the opportunity to give a blessing and i felt the Spirit testify in my heart and soul that this person would be healed. Just another testimony of God's true power on the earth. 
In other news, i have not been sick lately due to food or dehydration. thank goodness. me and Elder Obioma cook every meal at home. i have not eaten out once upon being here and im not even mad. i have become pro at mahamasaka-ing rice and laoka. ill have to teach you how to cook when i get home. also my cereal and noodle cooking skills are on point. we actually came up with a meal plan for ourselves and coordinated meals such as making hamburgers, fried rice, coconut rice, navajo bread (like scones) and other delicious concoctions. i cant wait. i love food. 
As far as work this week. we did. we taught over thirty lessons, plenty of hours, and 14 investigators at church. It was a good week and i only expect those numbers to go up. Weve had a lotta member help from the recent convert Lucien. he is a baller and teaches really well. i cant imagine teaching and testifying so well as he does for just being a member a couple weeks. 
We have over 20 baptisms planned and the biggest problem is vita soratra (legal marriage) that hopefully will still be taken care of though in the coming month and hopefully they will catch there bap dates. i have faith i will see at least 20 of these people baptized into the true Church of Christ and through the true authority of God. My testimony of that increases every day. i love this chruch and this life. the mission is flying by and i know its flying by because of love. I love it so much.
Another cool experience we get each week isssss, we lead a fireside thing each week for random members and mainly youth. two weeks ago we had a bon-fire-side testimony meeting about being a disciple of Christ at the beach (yes we had a bonfire) it was amazing. then we all went to visit a sick family member of an investigator (the one we later gave a blessing too) it was cool to see the branch family extend and include those around them. this past week we wrote letters to this girl who was sick and went to her house to deliver them. amazing moments.
I hope you are all doing well and doing your best to help those around you. I cant wait to help the missionaries when i get back. i regret not doing more. dont be complacent like i was. they need your help. and itll only help you!
i love you. Mahajanga loves you. Jesus loves you.
