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.

Happy new year!

I am quite a few weeks behind on letters, but I will start with the most recent, and then over the next couple of days, I will post some of the older letters.

12/29/2014 Letter

2014 is over and a new year is about to begin!

This year has been full of so many exciting things. During this year I have served in three different cities in Madagascar, met three very different types of people and all sorts of cool experiences I have had. 

So this week was Christmas and was very exciting. We had a lot of fun.

So we tried to visit some people throughout the week and we had some fun things like the ward Christmas party. The ward Christmas party was on Friday and despite it being very poorly organized it was good. The members went on the streets and passed out some pamphlets about the church and then met up for a nice picnic. The members in Madagascar are the best members in the world. I am sorry for the rest of you, but you have some serious work to do to catch up. 

This week we also had the opportunity for President and Sister Adams to go and teach with us. They taught with us yesterday two lessons. One to this great member family of which the father is less active, and one to Andry the recent convert. It was a lot of fun. 

We also got to go on a split on Saturday to Ambohimangakely and Ankadnindramamy Elders. I went with Ambohimangakely and had a great split. We taught a lot of great people and were able to grow more as missionaries. We have two great missionaries out there that are working hard in preaching the gospel to all of the people out there at the edge of the city. 

But besides that it was a pretty quiet week. Getting to talk to the family which is always good. Christmas eve, Christmas day, all of that stuff. I am excited for the next four months. For those who may notice I am writing this on the 29th of December and I leave Madagascar on the 29th of April. Time is a funny thing because time flies so fast and I just cannot believe where all the time has gone. It is interesting looking back at the time where I wasnt any good at malagasy and I could hardly communicate. I have so much hope for the future, the future looks bright.

This is a really short email, but I run fast out of things to write.

Enjoy your holidays.
Elder Weber
