Missions, Marriage and Drunk People- May 30, 2016

So, this week was great. It was literally just great. Everything about it was great. Tuesday went great, we taught a bunch of times and had some way awesome lessons. Wednesday was kind of poopy if I'm being truly honest. Most of the programs we had set up dogged us and it was just very meh. Thursday however was great. Mahala and Elvine got married!! He has been off of cigarettes for about 2 or 3 weeks now. Friday we taught them for the last time as members of the church, and on Saturday they were baptized. We actually had 6 baptisms on Saturday, so it was a really great day. Then Sunday was great! We didn't have quite so many investigators at church, mostly because they were all members at that point. Then on Sunday we went out tracking and it was way fun. You see Sunday was mother's day here (Love you momma). I don't know if I've told you yet, but Malagasies look for any and all excuses to throw a party and get hammered drunk. I'm talking multiple people passed out in the street drunk, and that's on every street. Anyways included in all of those parties is Mother’s Day. I got in a big shouting match with this drunk lady in the street because she just blamed us for all of the problems with Madagascar. People tend to do that a lot, just because we're white. Anyways it was all in good fun and a bunch of people were laughing and stuff because she was way drunk. We did find some way cool families on Sunday though, and I'm really excited to see where they go. So that's Madagascar for the week! Love you all, Happy Birthday Bryken,
Elder Jensen
