I don't know if you all realize this, but I have been living in Madagascar over a year now! haha it's way crazy. It's odd to think that just one year ago I was beginning it all down in Antsirabe, haha. It goes so fast!
About the Christmas package.. no, I don't have it yet. The office people say that they will go and check for packages this week (they have to pick them up from some postage place), and hopefully it'll be there. I got talking to Sister Adams while she was up here about that, and now she is all ready and trying to make sure it gets up here to me on time, so that's been very nice :) but who knows. No matter when I get it, it'll be great.
Elder Fox and I are planning on going and buying a little christmas tree today. We've started to see little christmas lights hung up in the little stores you see lining the streets, and people carrying christmas trees home on their heads. Things are getting very festive.
Except the heat, haha. It hasn't been raining as much as I expected though, but as far as what people say, January and February are the big rain months. Which sound about right.
A neat little story of something that happened this past week. Okay, so we got a referral from the A.P.s which led us to start teaching this older woman. She's not way old, but I suppose not way young either. Anyway, the thing about her is that she is the mother of a return missionary who recently got home from his mission. She goes to Tana a lot to sell diamonds and other gems she gets here, which makes it a bit tough to schedule a time with here, but she was given a Book of Mormon in 2008. It's not so much that she has grasped onto the teaching so much, for we haven't really even started teaching her too much, but it was just how proud she was of her son. She told us that he had ridden an airplane all the way to Congo, and you could just hear how amazing that was to her. I can't wait to see what happens once we really get the lessons going.
That's about it though, I'd say. Sorry if my emails are all short and stocky lately. I'll try to get a real nice meaty one soon.
I'll catch you all on Christmas Eve!
