Week 3 in Andranomanelatra

Manahoana Daholo!

This week was insane! So much crazy stuff happened and it was for sure a week to remember! I'll start off with what happened at the beginning of this week!

On Tuesday we had a pretty rough work day mainly because our car was broken! Apparently it accidently got filled with diseal instead of just regular gasoline.....The rest of the day was spent trying to get it fixed and luckily we did!

This week was also the Malagasy equivelant to the 4th of July! It's was flipping nuts! June 26th is the day that Madagascar became an independent nation and it's probably one of the craziest days of the year! Everyone is completely drunk! It's really sad to see but I actually have a really funny story about some drunk guy!

We had been working out in Sarodroa all day and had just come back to Andranomanelatra to teach our last time! We were sort of in a hurry because a 7:00 pm curfew had been set and we were trying to squeez this last time in! On our way to the time some cop starts yelling at us in French and you could clearly tell that he was drunk! Yes, a cop!  He was way out of it and started to follow us! He followed us all the way over to our time and at that point we started to pretend that we didn't know any Malagasy! It was way funny as our member help was pretending to translate for us! He eventually left and we haven't seen him since, haha!

On a more spiritual note, our branch president left for the Temple in South Africa today! He and his wife are the first members from the branch to visit the temple and we couldn't be more happy for them! At least the missionaries will have some help when members ask us about the temple, haha!

All of our investigators are doing great especially out in Sarodroa!  We got some good news about Rob and hopefully he can get baptized here in a little while! He's so ready but he still needs to fix some stuff!  All in all, he's doing great as well as everyone else!

That's about it for the week! It was a crazy week but I'm sure glad that I got to experience it! I hope everything is going great where ever you may be and just know that everything is going great down here! I love you all so much and I hope that everyone has a great week!
