Hi family,
So this past week sounds fun for you guys, funny to hear you went to the dance cant imagine that hahaha. So this week was pretty good a few things happend that were kinda cool. On thursday night when we were coming home on the bus, and this dood im sitting next to thinks i dont speak malagasy, so he thinks “oh im going to make this only white guy on the bus feel dumb so im going to start to talk to him” so he did but he was very suprised that i was able to speak with him not only a little in french but in malagasy, but long story short after i started speaking to him in malagasy he started to say stuff like “wow im sorry i didnt know you were malagasy im going to make sure everyone calls you gasy” haha so that made me laugh. Then we gave him a invatation to come to church. He said he wants us to come teach him, so who knows will see if he calls. Second cool thing was on friday at lunch, me and te’e are eating at the hotely and just speaking half malagasy and english and this super big dood comes up and starts talking to me in english. He was like are you an American in perfect accent, like seriously it kinda freaked me out because i dont really hear black people here with such amazing english. He was supper sick he’s like “im from africa and i havent been able to speak english in a while can talk to you guys and get your contact to practice english” and were like “yea dood thats dope how great your accent is" and we gave hime the whole speal of the mission and stuff. Good things going on there. Last cool thing is elder hamelton came to our church with president random but it was good so yea thats all here life is good.

Hello family,
so I am super happy but also super bummed haha. Its no big deal really so bad news first I'm staying in my second area of Analmahitsy so really not all that bad. I'm just wanting a new place to explore and meet new people ya know. But  Fr Rafalimanana Degonzague Prosper did get baptized! And I was able to do it!! My first one, and we should be having another baptism in a few weeks so steez! The first picture is of me and fr faly right before the baptism and the second is the best thing i have eaten here. Its a burger from a vaza place it cost about 20,000 ARI so about 8 bucks hahahhaha. But really for a few short minutes I felt like I was eating at home again. Mayn I really miss chinese food haha like some wok or pf changs hahah. As for the superbowl thats super lame I don't like the sea hawks but I don't like New England more. O well I just keep telling my self the Olympics will be freaking rad right haha. The fire place looks so good wow I hope its still cool in a few years. And as for the mama bears eyes its good to hear all is going well and no problems happened. You guys are all in my prayers every morning and night :) This past month of January was a long one for me for sure. I think it was becasue it was the 6 month mark on the mission. Time sure does fly only 18 more fast sundays and only 13 more transfers ill be home and everything will be great. But whatever I'm just going with it for now love you guys :)
