Lundi de Paque

So here in Madagascar, there is this holiday called Lundi de Paque. That's French for the Monday after Easter, and in Madagascar, they celebrate that. Because of that, pretty much everything in town is closed and so I don't really have a lot of time today, but here is a summary of my week.

So, Monday I rode down to Tana with President and Sister Foote. That was about an 8-hour drive through the winding jungle, not so fun, but it was still great because it was with President. On Tuesday, we picked up all the new missionaries coming in this transfer. There are 5 of them, all from South Africa, and they are doing great. They got all the paperwork taken care of for visas and such and then took them back to our house for the night. We spent the rest of the night delivering people around for transfers, and picking up the 5 new trainers. Most of Wednesday was spent in a training meeting for all the Trainers and trainees, and the best part of those is that Sister Foote cooks all the meals. I have almost forgotten how great a home cooked meal is. On Thursday, we drove out to a branch called Moramanga, which is about 3 hours outside of Tana. We work there on Thursdays. I have been slowly remembering how to drive, but I'm a little bit rusty. It doesn't help that there are really no traffic laws here in Madagascar, and the traffic is insane! My first time back on the roads was home from Moramanga on Thursday. Other than that, it was a pretty normal week.

Love you all so much,

Elder Jensen
