Last week we were able to meet Ashita and her parents at their home. They were very welcoming to us Elders. After we shared a scripture Ashita pulled out her Liahona and asked us some questions from Thomas S. Monson's talk. She had the entire talk all marked up.In my entire life of being in this church I have never done that. It was amazing to see her desire to learn more about our church. She was able to attend church. But she had to leave early because she wasn't feeling well. But she did accept to be baptized on January 8th. We are very excited for her decision.
It was cool to be interviewed by Elder Funk and President Hodges last week. Elder Funk just asked us how our mission experiences have been and what success that we've seen. It's funny because I actually met him 3 days before I reported to the MTC at an all India mission reunion. He said he remembered meeting me. I think he was just saying that to make me feel good.
Last night while riding back to our apartment in an auto I saw this big thing moving up ahead of us. We were traveling on the free way and I was puzzled to what it could be. Then when we got close enough I screamed. IT WAS A FLIPPING ELEPHANT!! YES AN ELEPHANT! I almost told our driver to pull over so I could ride the Elephant home. I'm going to ride an Elephant before I leave this place. If I don't, then people are going to question if I really served in India.
I'm way stoked to Skype home this week.
