Salama Daholo

Salama e!
Ino kabary? Miresaka? Ao tsara? Ohatran'ny tsisy vaovao tamin'ity herinandro ity. Fa tena tiako in misiônako. Angamba tezitra na sosotra kely ianareo. Tena azafady fa te hiresaka tenin'gasy bebe kokoa aho. Izany hoe, ny hafatra jiaby, dia ao amin'ny tenin'gasy. Tamin'ny ity herinandro vao vao ity, nahazo mpiara-mitory vaovao aho. Milay izy. Tsy toy ny mpiara-mitory aloha fa tiako izy. Misy fahasamihafa be dia be fa samihafa isika rehetra. tsy maninona. ankoatra izany, tena mahafinaritra ny conference generale. vao nijery conference izahay tamin'ny omaly sy Sabotsy.
Sarotra laotra ny resaka amin'ny tenin'gasy.
SO, that was tough to type. a lot easier to say. its phentic though so its all good. easy. i can teach but the Holy Ghost is a lot better than I. serve a mission in mada. its chill. so i basically said,"i hate all the orphans in the whole world." (no im just kiddin i just miss nacho libre) i said "Whats new? the talk? Everything ok? Pretty much nothing new this past week. But i love my mission! maybe yall will be mad or annoyed when you read this. Im so sorry but i wanna talk more in malagasy, which means this whole message is in malagasy.  i got a new companion this week. He is cool. not much like the one before but i love him. Theres a lotta differences but we are all different. No worries. besides that, general conference was awesome. we just watched conference yesterday and saturday.
Anyways, this week was good, it felt really long but lookin back it was like a snap of the fingers. My eye was sick monday then tuesday they both hurt and on wednesday felt a lil better. a lot better on thursday and pretty much healed. and on friday my right eye got sick again then saturday is switched to just my left eye. and they are almost sitrana now. cool story huh? haha as far as the foods ive eaten every meal. breakfast every morning has been cereal. and tuesday was rice and laoka for lunch, dinner was noodles. wednesday was...jk who cares. some people complain i dont give enough detail so i thought id include that hahaha
Ive only watched the saturday and a lil bit of priesthood session in english and the four general saturday and sunday sessions in malagasy. (lotta conference) but i really liked... W. Wilford Anderson? i forgot his name but he was saturday after noon and talked about dancing and hearing the music. i encourage you to rewatch that one. it was way good. i felt that there were a ton of talks about gospel centered families and stengthening the home and family. Made me a lil trunky to have a family of my own and be a better support for my current family. very powerful. very true. very needed.
going, back to the eyes real quick. so before i got sick i was makin fun of a member cause her eyes were sick haha it came back to bite me lol which reminded me of a malagasy proverb "Ny tody tsy misy fa ny atao no miverina" (The consequence doesnt exist now but what is done will return) another example of this this past week: we were teachin a time and i picked a girl to say the prayer and she was like "huh? meee? ugh fine." (cute little girl - like 10 years old) then at the end i asked her (cause she started) who she wanted to say the closing prayer and she, of course, picked me. and the mom said that same proverb. it was a cool moment haha so i thought about that a little bit, especially cause we taught a ton this week about obedience and blessings. Its hard promising blessings here when life is so tough and different from our american lifestyles, but i know that regardless of where we live, the gospel is the same. the blessings are the same. there was a line in conference that i loved in one of the saturday sessions from D. Todd Christofferson "No one is predestined to receive less than all that the Father has for his children." That line hit me. no matter where we are from, where we live, when we live, we can all inherit the Father's Kingdom, but we have to live it now. when we know it. I can promise you that if you obey to your best ability then the tody (consequence - in this case a blessing) might not be here today but the atao (what is done) will miverina (return). We can all succeed. Be patient. Have faith. And NEVER lose hope.
i love you all! Have a great week! AH! the TWP! here they are:
Toilet paper existing but the lines seperating the squares not #TWP
Not having measuring cups to know how much rice to water you need #becomingatruemalagasy #TWP
