Alma 26:12 - Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

A week full of fun and surprises

This week was really full. I am sorry I didnt get pictures sent last week, but I have a lot this week and they are already working on uploading. 

So Fort Dauphin is doing well, and we had a very nice weekend with President and Sister Adams. This week we have been working hard, we are still finding new investigators and working to try and help the branch. It will suffice to say that we have a lot of work ahead of us.

We had a great time with President and Sister Adams this weekend, we had interviews, a couple of firesides, and just craziness with them. It was great to see them and they love it down here. 

Ok, let me explain with pictures today. We wake up in the morning and open the windows of our house to see this. 0010 and 0011. 

So actually my first full day here in Fort D we see a guy with a hammerhead shark walking down the street, so naturally we stop him and take a picture of him. 0015. Then we obviously need a picture with the shark as well. 0017

And then since there are two branches here, there are also two different church buildings, mine, which is in need of repair and a lot of love, and the other one which from here on out will be called Amparihy, mine is Tanambao, the others are Amparihy. The nice church building is Amparihy. 0024 and 0025. 

Then you turn around from where I took those pictures and you get to see their view from church. 0026,0027,0028. Talk about incredible. I mean lets be honest, how hard is it to go to church when you know that you get to look at that from the windows. And it gives incentives to talk in church, because when you give a talk, you face the ocean and a beautiful view. That is the same beach we see from our house, see the first pics, yes then you can conclude we live very close to that church building.

Then last week we went on the picnic. Sometimes when you go on a picnic you see lemurs. 0042,0043 

Other times you see waterfalls, even if they are small and not impressive after walking 2.5 hours,0059 and sometimes you have fun eating lunch together. 0063

And then we went to the beach. and built a sand castle. and had fun. 0068,0071,0074

Ill fast forward a little bit without pics because they are taking a while to upload, so get ready, get set go!

I have an investigator that is way good at drawing with pencil, we killed live chickens to eat, etc, etc, etc. Normal stuff. 

Today we woke up and started a nice hike. Where to, you ask? Pic St Louis, or for us english speakers the peak St. Louis. It is a nice mountain. It only took three hours to hike up and about 2 to come back down. On pic, here is the explanation. We hike way to the left, and hike up to the first peak, we call that, peak false hope, and then we have to hike down into the sadle and back up to the second peak, the taller one, called St. Louis. Then after being up there for about an hour and a half, we came back down on a path to the right. It was fun, but tiring. We went with 14 members. Members go on p-day activites with us every week. Everyone knows every monday the missionaries are going to do some cool thing and they all join us.  and the rest of the pics are from the top of the two peaks. numbers whatever are left because I am tired. Really tired. Really really tired.

I love you all, God be with you.
Elder Weber
