Week 33: Thanksgiving dinner, the work keeps going

Some people have asked what the climate is like this time of year in New Delhi. The weather at this time is 80's during the day and it can get into the 50's at night. Occasionally we will get a picture of him in a long sleeve shirt, so there are days that are cooler than others.

The past week we've had a lot of great conversations with people on the streets as well as at restaurants about what our purpose is as missionaries. We hope that a couple of these conversations turn into a little bit more than that in a week or so. We also visited a less-active family that Elder Braganza remembered. That family of five attended church the following Sunday. We also had a 96 people in attendance at church yesterday. My recent convert Bro Kolhi just got called as the 1st counselor. I can tell that he will take over that position in just a few months to the BML. That is the most we've had in attendance in the 3 months that I've been serving in this branch. Also we had 13 people that attended English class this past Saturday. Which is double what we usually have in attendance.

I'm going good. I just found out that a couple brothers in the branch plan on putting in their mission papers in the near future. They are working on getting their passports now. That was probably one of the highlights of this week as well as the great tasting Thanksgiving Dinner. It tasted just like food from the US. Having bomb turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy almost put me into tears. I miss momma's home cooking.

We also had a training from President Gong who is the Asia area seventy. I bore my testimony in front of him and he came up to me after the meeting and said that I have a great testimony of this church. Also he said that Delhi is very close to getting a stake. He said that he could see Delhi getting a stake in the next year and a half or so. Also Bangalore got a stake last month. So it's the second stake in India. Delhi is hoped to be the 3rd. The church is also growing a lot in Pakistan as well. Believe it or not but there are more members in Pakistan than there are in Delhi.

Some missionaries have found Wendy's here in India and I will try to make the 1 hour metro trip to get there this week. Stay frosty my friends. This is what beach volleyball in India looks like.

Also another good thing about this Thanksgiving that I didn't have a missionary break my collarbone like last year lol
