Howdy!!Good and bad week! Start with the bad news:
We will be watching General Conference this weekend as missionaries at the office. I am super excited to hear the words of the living prophets and apostles!!
My Dad asked me how we get around as missionaries here in Tana. There are parts in the mission that the missionaries take bikes, but here in Tana we walk and take buses. Thats how we get around . They are called Taxibe's. Big Taxi. Hahah I feel like Ive written stories about them before, but they are insane. Usually they sit about 18, but it aint full until there is about 25 with people hanging off the back. Its crazy. You got people sitting on your lap, babies crying in your face, flies flying everywhere, people talking how big you are and how annoying it is that they have to sit next to you, etc. Little do they know, I speak Malagasy hahaha. Its always great to just start adding to their conversations. Taxibe's are sorta indescribable hahaha. But I wouldnt trade it for anything haha!!
Im kinda all over the place, but I wanna talk a bit about my house. We got 6 elders and it is a party. Elder Razakamindimby, Elder Koplin, Elder Randrianantenaina, Elder Schroedter, Elder Stringfellow, and Elder Bogosy(me). Razaka has been out 8 months and is from here in Tana. Koplin has been out 3 months and is from Idaho Falls. Randry is going home in December and he is from Antsirabe. Schroedter has been out 3 months and is from Katy, TX!!! And String has been out a solid 2 months!! Haha. It's weird kinda being the oldest in the house. It feels like just yesterday I was in their shoes. The mission just flies. I hate it. Not the mission, but the flying part. Kinda wish I could go back and start again. Dont have any regrets, I just love the mission so much.
The church is true. I know it. Cant deny it. I see it everyday.
