This past week Elder Thompson and I were sick for two days while Elder Britton took care of us. It did slow down the work but my new companion Elder Gardiner helped me get back into rhythm. So Phanindra was an investigator of ours that was suppose to get baptized 3 weeks ago but...his father wanted him to wait till he was 21? So we still continued to visit in hopes of meeting with his father and explaining to him the importance of baptism and the blessings that come from it. He works till really late so we have never seen him.
Anyway, I just felt prompted to go visit Phanindra and Elder Gradiner and I rode down to his house and saw Phanindra riding his cycle and we asked if we come over. He let us is and we began to start sharing a small message then he cousin and his wife and children came down and joined us. He asked us alot about America and what is was like and if we had any pictures of our families. We talked more and more and I gave him a Book of Mormon and I told him in my boldest voice to "READ IT!"
He was asking a lot of questions about the church because he came from a Hindu background and all his questions could be answered if he read it. He and his wife both spoke English and they were really nice. Rajesh and Srivani were there names.
We were able to set date with our good friend Sudheer who came to church on Sunday with gospel library installed on his phone. He is reading the Book of Mormon and he wants to come to church in a white shirt and tie. I told him that if he buys a white shirt I will give him a tie (I have 26 ties). His date is for the 23rd of Feb so we are going to get that man prepared for the font!
