What a week! Full of appointments, random conversations with drunk guys, running on to moving buses, and fooling people with laser pens! This last week was so legit, we had a great time in Bangalore for MLC and we had a blast during our service on Thursday! It was busy going back and forth taking care of these little problems here and there but it was so worth it because everyday ended with something spiritual.
Elder Ravindran and I have been having a party together! We have been just killing it in our appointments and we have been teaching really powerful lessons. On Friday we had a Zone Training meeting and as a zone we established that we could have 49 baptisms as a zone this month! We all made the commitment to pray and fast for every name on the board (49 names). I think that by doing this we can be more accountable to the lord for those names. I have been noticing that since Elder Ravindran and I have been having alot of unity together, that has translated to the work that is happening in the other companionship's. Last week every companionship found at least 3 new investigators and had more than 10 lessons per week. One of the companionships (Elder Gill and Pushpa Raj) had 37 lessons last week!
A couple days ago we were invited to go visit brother Pavan. He is a less-active and we wanted to go see what we could do to help him come back and fulfill his calling as an Elders Quorum counselor. When we sat down with him, sister in-law joined us. We taught her about the Restoration and while we were teaching I felt like should ask some questions about her. I just asked how she met her husband and she told us this amazing story of how they met. She opened up and started to tell us everything! Which made it very easy for us to answer every question using the Book of Mormon. She was very touched by the message we shared and she said that she was very happy for the Book of Mormon. She and her husband are not church members so we are going to help them as much as possible this week.
Enjoy the Photos!
BTW: Google Google is my new favorite Tamil song! I have been hearing it everywhere!
I am excited for General Conference next week!
