I can't actually believe I have already been in India for a solid month today! Everything is going pretty fast and I am scared for when I hit my 6 month mark because that's when everyone says the mission starts flying by. Anyway some new missionaries to our area where Elder Doss, Elder Bean (District Leader), and Elder Merril. Elder Aruldoss finished his mission on Tuesday and is now enjoying the luxuries of the NBA. Elder Britton is leaving to the Phillipines on the 17th of August so we have to go out and celebrate with him. We just recently combined zones and now West Marredpally and Madinaguda are now one large zone. We are losing missionaries left and right and our mission is getting very small so combining zones just made sense.
On Thursday I had the opportunity to have me first interview with President Berrett. It was really cool because I could express any problem I had and he could sympathize with me about it because he is just as new as me. On Friday I went to my first Zone Conference and it was awesome. We talked about using the Book Of Mormon more in our lessons and the power it will have in conversion when it is combined with the Spirit. President Berrett is a very knowledgeable guy and he has so much to share about the gospel. Sister Berrett is basically our mom plain and simple. She has the solution to any sickness and she will help you until you have full strength and are ready to get back to work. I love them both :)
The main struggle for me and my Companion this past week was sickness. I got sick on Tuesday, the same old sickness I got back at home, you guys know what i am talking about. But it was combined with this strange stomach pains and crazy pooping! It was the worst sickness I have ever had in my entire life so far... and it happened in India of all places haha.
Anyway, I was sick for about the whole week and my companion took pretty good care of me. We had KFC which is amazing here in India and we had McDonalds the next day so I was starting to do better. Then Elder O'dell got sick after Zone Conference and I knew it was my fault. We spent the entire week inside pretty much and on Saturday made some time to get out and teach a lesson and I gave my first blessing which was amazing.
That was pretty much our week, I pray that I will never see sickness again and hopefully never stay inside for a full week haha until next time my friends.
Elder Dusara Out:)
