Zone Meeting

It's Monday sahady! Crazy! Time just goes so fast... this is already the 3rd week of the transfer. Not too many of those left... But Anyway, We had a pretty good week this week. 

Oh ponderize scripture of the week: Moroni 7:45

On Monday we went to this place called Saka Manga. Way good place to eat. We didn't really do a lot for P-day but it's whatever. That night we had a soiree with Fr Solofo. Way cool guy and we had way good food. Love having soirees with members.

Tuesday we had a pretty good day of teaching. We taught Flavien and Hanta first and had the opportunity of giving her aunt a blessing. She just had eye surgery and wanted a blessing. Then we went clear out to Andry and taught him. We had a great time with him and then went to a new family. They are kinda slower on the learning side and I don't think they really understand our purpose. Gotta clear that up with them. We taught Edmond and Lily and had a great lesson with them about baptism. They are awesome and I love them so much. 

Wednesday we didn't have the best day. All our times fell through except for one. We taught John Kely and had a good lesson with him. His family doesn't like us very much. They think we are devil worshipers or something. He even asked us if we made pacts. Weird. But we had our DMB meeting that night and were able to update the branch on the people we are teaching. Then our last time was super far away and we finally got all the way out there and he wasn't there. Kinda lame. But it's ok: Blessings.

Thursday we had zone meeting. But trying to leave our house was a disaster. There was way bad traffic. So we de3cided to split a taxi with the other Elders in our house. So we asked one taxi and he said he would go for 20000. Not bad. So we are thinking we will take it and as soon as we start to get in he raises the price. Well Elder Hardy didn't like that so he went and asked another taxi how much he would go and he said 15000. Well by this point, Elder Yeagley and Elder Thompson are inside the first taxi and that taxi driver starts to freak out that we are going to go to the other taxi. So Elder Yeagley and Elder Thompson try to get out because we are obviously going to take the cheaper one, and the guy starts going. He won't let them out of the car. Elder hardy and I were in the other taxi and the other two were stuck in the first one. Every time they tried to get out, he would start driving. Well Elder Yeagley got pretty mad at that guy. Well we stopped and the taxi drivers talked it over and we ended up going with the first guy but he was terrified of us haha. He was trying to like buy us things and kept asking people if there was traffic ahead and stuff. It was kinda funny. But we made it to the office eventually. We had our zone meeting and it went well. We just discussed the new mission goals that President Foote has set and we went over what our job is in our individual areas. We took a long bus ride back to our area and made it back just in time for our first appointment. Which fell through. But blessings. Our next three times were home though. We taught this new family, Rija and Tina and they are awesome. Tina wasn't there actually but we talked to Rija about the Book of Mormon and it was a great lesson. 

Friday We went on a split with Ankadidrimamy and Ambohimangakely. I went with Elder Godfrey and Elder Bingham in Ankadidrimamy. We just did splits with them 2 weeks ago but we weren't able to go with Ambohimangakely and we wanted to get them in as soon as possible. But the split went really well. They are working hard and are great missionaries. Tracting is way hard in their area too. Had a lot of doors slammed in our face. 

Saturday we made it back in time for English. That was fun. Then we went out and had our program fall apart. We were able to teach Gina that night and had a great lesson with her. We had to move her baptismal date back because she isn't ready yet. We can't quite figure out what the problem is with her. Then we taught Ndriana and his family and they are awesome. We talked about his smoking and have new goals for him to overcome it. 

Sunday was church and we had a good day. We were able to teach a bunch of people. We were finally able to catch Tolotra and Prisca and teach them a little. We caught Tanjona and Tafita and had a great lesson with them about the Book of Mormon. They loved it! It was one of the coolest lessons I've been in about the Book of Mormon. It was awesome! We taught Rija and Tina again that night and Tina was there so we reviewed about the Book of Mormon. They had great questions and it was altogether a great lesson with them. She has some concerns that because she has already been baptized, she doesn't need to get baptized again in our church. It was great! We got her some reading and we are going to talk about it next time and it'll be great! 

Great week! This week will a little iffy workwise because we have a lot of things going on with an MLC, missionary broadcast, zone activity and another split. It'll be a good email for next week though! Have a great week everyone! 

I asked Austin the happiest part of his week..... Here is his answer

The happiest part of my week this week was all the Book of Mormon lessons we taught. I love the Book of Mormon so much and it just makes me so happy to share it with others. It is by far my favorite lesson to teach.
