So Mangahazo is a food here in Madagascar that is similar to voamanga or sweet potato. They grow it here because it is very filling even though it eats up calcium. SO! Farming fact of the week. DO not just feed your pigs mangahazo because it has no nutritional value but you have to feed it vitamins and proteins and......Otrikaina "I think you translate this as Energy" just like any other animal if you want it to survive. Also! Apparently it is good to put Cow blood in your animal food because of the protein that is inside the blood. Hmm.... Who knew?
So things are going great here in Manandona. We are kind of weeding out some people in our schedule so that we can focus on some more core families but things are going pretty well. Life in Fort D Is SO SWAG! There is not a better place in the world. I definitely will just cry when I have to leave this area because nothing can compare to it.
One of the cool things that happened this week was when we went to Maharivo and tried to find Jean Florice. He is a way cool less active. He got an injury on his hand and because of that can't work on his fields and Elder Christiansen and I are going to go on Tuesday and maybe Wednesday and go mamboly (plant or farm) some mangahazo! I am way excited for it, and we are going to get our greffie and our DMB and just go ham on those fields. I am SO STOKED! Farming is AWESOME! (Even though i suck at using a shovel)
It hasn't been raining as much lately which has been great and it makes it so that we can actually drive out to Besoa. OH! Yea So Richard came to church (The 1st councilor in the branch presidency) since his foot is healed! So that is way cool, and he can finally mandray some anjara in all of this. :)
Well sorry this is short. But I love you all and thank you for your prayers.
Love Elder Lehr
