I cannot believe the day has actually come! I never imagined that I would be coming home in such a short time. 2 years just passed by "like nothing". Something that has been going through my mind this last week is,"How am I going to finish off the last week of my mission?". I actually never thought my last week could have ended so well. Elder Bunga was so helpful to me this last week. He kept me focused when I was not so focused and I also did the same for him. His new companion is Elder Bandi (One of my favorite missionaries). Some people/missionaries, like to measure success by baptisms or lessons. Elder Bunga and I did not have so much of those this transfer but we were able to achieve something far greater in my opinion.
On Saturday I was on exchange with Elder Pushparaj in their area. We had a basketball activity in the morning and we had so much fun the YSA's that came. It was insanely hot the morning and as the day went on it got worse. We received a call from the Sisters asking us for help in shifting their apartment. They have been living with no power for 3 days and they wanted to get into their new apartment as soon as possible. So Elder Kumar, Peterson, Pushparaj and I went and helped them (It was still super hot). We were able to finish the work at about 6pm and it felt so good to finally give some meaningful service again (LIFT).
Yesterday was possibly the best Sunday I have ever had! Elder Bunga and I gave our Sacrament talks together(His was good, mine was rough). It was also the first time I have seen all the YSA's we have been working with come to church together. Our sacrament attendance yesterday was actually the highest it has been all year I think. During the classes I just kinda sat with all the YSA's in one room and talked with them about life and their futures. All their concerns were just opened up and they finally could speak freely. All of those guys have very strong testimonies and I know they are going to lead the branch's here in the coming years. After church I was called into the sacrament hall and I was told that we are going to be having my "Farewell" Or "Send-off". Everyone was laughing and there was actually a mother who came to the stand and said that she would love to have me as her son in-law hahah. I did not know they loved me and my companion so much. It was awesome to see the YSA's one by one come up and share, "Because of Elder Dusara, I know how to play basketball and I have more of a desire to serve a mission". The rest of the day I just spent time with the YSA's and we had some really good appointments to finish off the day. Today will be remembered forever and always.
Cant wait to see everyone again!
