Week 8: Birthday activities, upcoming baptismal dates

The title of this email really relates to the actual week we had as missionaries. We were able to set 4 baptismal dates in the month of September. Babu Ram is getting baptized this Saturday and he is going to be my first baptism. Even though I myself am not baptizing him I was able to teach him everything and bring him to the point he is at now. We have went over with him Tithing & Fast Offering, Words of Wisdom, and The Law of Chastity this last week and went over the baptismal interview questions with him just to make sure he was ready. It was an amazing blessing to see this guy going from no knowledge of the gospel at all to having a very strong testimony of the Book Of Mormon and excepting Jesus Christ as his savior and excepting Joseph Smith as the prophet who restored the true church on the earth today. We have also taught brother Yadgiri who is a member and his wife Sister Lakshmi who is a non member and is very desirous to be baptized.

The last family we have been teaching is Brother Prem Raj and his wife Ester and their two little girls. They were actually a referral buy Brother Sandeep who lives right next door to them and they have shown their desire to know more about the church and be baptized. Their date is set for September 21st and Sister Lakshmi's date is set for September 28th. This is the month we were hoping for and we are working our hardest to make sure these families are ready for baptism.
As all you know, I had my birthday on Thursday the 29th. I wanted to go to TGI Fridays and enjoy a nice almost american burger and some nice french fries...and dessert:) Little did I know its tradition to pay for everyone you invite and I invited 8 lovely people. My bill came out to 6,000RS which is pretty much almost 100 bucks. After our meal we headed back to the church because Elder O'Dell told me we had a teaching appointment with a YSA's friend. He took me to the kitchen and 13 YSA's were there to surprise me with shoving cake in my face one at a time. I love the YSA's in my ward and I guess they love me too:)

Elder Beans birthday was 2 days after mine and we ate at this really nice place known for biriyani. I didn't like it at all but everyone else did. We slept over at their apartment and cut his cake at 12 at night and ordered some late night McDonalds. 

Today we went to Charminar to take pictures and do a little shopping. We all wanted to look like a Muslim so we purchased all the necessary accessories required. Prayer mat, top hat thing, scarf, and shirt and pants. Apparently they didn't have shirt and pants in my size so I'm the only one who is missing out:( 

That was my week I hope I can send pictures:)
