Week 17 in Tamatave...Helping out the Branch Leadership

Hey everyone!

I can't believe Easter has already come and gone and along with that was conference! We didn't have the opportunity to watch conference this past week but on the 26th and 27th we'll receive it all and I can't wait to watch it! I heard nothing but good things about this conference and I'm really looking forward to it!

Work this week was busy! Right now we are trying to clean up information in our branch's recording system (MLS) and that took up a lot of our time, haha! Oh well, I've actually kind of liked it because I get to work with a lot of our members!

We could see a Baptism coming up! We are teaching this girl named Tanya with some members and she is progressing very well! She's been coming to church with the member family and hopefully we get her baptized soon! Other than that we are still rebuilding our program but the area is doing alive and well! I love our branch and they help me out so much!

We also had a very good Zone Meeting this week! It lasted about 4 hrs and we talked about "How We Can Become Disciples Of Christ." It was probably my favorite Zone Meeting so far and I learned so much! The main messege that I got out of it was that I need to deny myself of everything besides the Lord and put everything else behind me! I've been trying to do that this week and let's just say I got a lot of room for improvement! However, I have already seen some small changes in my work and they way I act and it has been a true blessing in my life!

So sorry for another short letter this week! This week I'm going on two different splits and they should be a ton of fun to talk about!  I'll fill you in with all the details from this week next week and I can't wait to talk to you all again! 

Thank you so much for all the emails and words of encouragement! I love you all so much and I hope ya'll have a great week!

  1. The woman in the top picture holding the child, did she get baptized? I served in Ankirihiry in 2009-10 and she was one of the most faithful people I had ever met but couldn't get baptized because of her husband I think. Can't remember all the details, I just remember that she constantly helped the missionaries even though she wasn't (technically) a member.
