The Church is Changing Peoples Lives


It is going good here in Tamatava. The days have gone by so fast here. We have to push our baptism back one or two weeks so we can finish all of the lessons with him first. The Investigators here are way cool because they all do the work themselves. They come to church and read the Book of Mormon. It is the greatest thing when the people convert themselves.

We have a couple of way awesome families that we love right now. One is a really old man named Setapierre and his daughter Jaselle. They are some of the happiest people I have ever met and they make me smile every time we go teach them. Setapierre is always smiling when he sees us because he is so taken away that we speak his language. But he can't say much because when he talks his teeth almost fall out of his mouth. So he just smiles and laughs. His daughter is the same way but she can talk and usually talks for him.

The other family is way mazotoa. But because Elder Wilson and I are awful with names we just call them the Catholic Cats. They used to be Catholic and their house is full of cats... They come to church every week together and the wife even goes to the activities at the church on Saturdays. The lessons with them are great.

Funny Story: In one of the lessons with the Catholic Cats a chicken jumped onto my shoulder and just took a seat. The wife took it off and threw it outside, but within about one minute that same chicken came up behind me and jumped onto my shoulder again. After that, the wife just grabbed it and held it under the table. At the end of that lesson the husband said something and pointed at Elder Wilson's pants. We told him we did not understand so he put his finger on the zipper of Elder Wilson's pants. That made him sweat a little bit until he realized his fly was just down. He thought he was trying to get a little frisky with him.

The work here is going good. The church is changing peoples lives. I am grateful to be a part of it.
Elder Allen
