So as you might know my companion and I have been going back and forth, here and there trying to fix some of the problems we are having in our new apartment. For some reason when we tell the land lord or the maintenance guys to do anything they seem to not really care when the work gets done and it really tests my patience. This is a learning period after all-_- Yesterday I said goodbye to Elder Ravindran as he headed for Chennai. It was a little sad to see him go but I know that the times we had will never be forgotten.
Just wanted to wish you all a belated Happy New Year because I forgot to on Monday. We as Zone got together and we had so much fun! Played some Nerf and really built some unity together. The next day after that we went to Hard Rock Cafe to celebrate for lunch. We were able to score some pretty nice appointments towards the end of the week which was great because we have not been able to do much the past 3 weeks.
So on Monday after we went Lazer Tagging we came back to the church to buy some food for the night and we received a call from a part member named Chatergee. Ever since I have been here in Hyderabad I have seen him 1 time and that was in December. He is insanely hard to meet with and will always leave the house when we come over. During this phone call he simply asked "Elder I want to get Baptized", I was shocked and asked to him to repeat that again. We set an appointment for yesterday night at 7pm and Mark(awesome member) and I taught him about the "God Head" and set him with a baptismal date for the 25th of January. When I think to myself about what happened here I always look back to the scripture in 1 Nephi 1:20, "But behold, I Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, Because of their faith, to make them might even unto the power of deliverance."
I cannot even count all the Tender Mercies that I have received, but I do recognize when they have happened. We now have 6 people that are set with baptismal dates for now and the beginning of February. The Blessings never cease.
