Week 89: Disappointments will come

We asked Elder Dusara, what he would do different if he had the chance to prepare over again and his response is below:

- My mission has been memorable so far! I cannot tell you have many awesome experiences I have had and I cannot tell you the many crap things that have happened. Its 30 years of experience all in 2 years!

- I wished I would have been more in tune with the scriptures. I love reading them and I love learning the deeper doctrines of what different scriptures mean.

Do not be fooled by my title today. Elder Thambi and I still worked really hard and had 25 great appointments but there is another principle that I learned this past week. I am sharing this because it will be a little bit different compared to my other emails.

So the whole week we have been preparing our investigators in all things. One of them is coming to church. It does not matter what you teach them during the week because if they do not come to church they are not exercising that faith that will push them to the next..level.  Its kind of like Halo. Before you move on to the next chapter or the next level you usual fight a boss or face something really challenging. 

So sometimes like yesterday, our investigators did not come and I was so sad. In Elders Quorum class we were reading through the Ezra Taft Benson manual and we came to chapter 4 which talks about "Living Joyfully in Troubled Times". I was reading through that in class and I just felt so happy for some reason and I was excited to visit those families that were not able to attend church. We visited every family and we able to share with them the importance of Sacrament. Something that was interesting to note was that after we finished the lessons they said that they knew or felt like something was wrong when they did not come to church. I am pretty sure that is the Light Of Christ acting within them. 

We found two new investigators yesterday and they were two people that I was told to go speak too. I I ITL'D them last week and did not ask for his phone number just to see if he would actually call me. I knew where he stayed so everything was fine. He did call me yesterday and I went on exchange with Arun and Raj Surya and we started teaching the "God Head" and then this brothers wife started asking questions that Joseph Smith also asked...so...the lessons turned into the restoration by the end and it was so cool. She has a very strong testimony of Jesus Christ and so does her husband! 

Here are some photos of our Service Activity:)
