This past Sunday Jayantika and Mamta were both able to be confirmed. Also, after church we visited a referral family from Elder Kadli. It was a Christian family of 8. Of the 8 about 4 of them spoke English. We taught The Restoration and handed out 3 Books of Mormon. They skimmed through the first few pages and said that they wanted us to come back to teach them more and to eat with them. We are way stoked to go back this week. The mother actually tried paying us money as a thank you for teaching them. We declined and said we would be happy to come over for dinner or lunch this week. Lets see what happens this transfer with this new family.
We had a great time at the event this past Saturday. It was definitely a unique experience for us. All of the native Indian missionaries were saying that the South Indian food that they served tasted just like home for them. There was someone that played the sitar (Indian Guitar). Then there was a really interesting Hindu dance.
This past month I've found myself loosing my appetite. Then I'm also not eating as much as I used to for each meal. I've dropped 15 pounds in the last 4 months. I just need to endure a little bit longer.
Also transfers are this week. I'm probably staying, but my companion might be on his way out the door. While jogging this past week I was chased by 4 street dogs.... again.
Lastly, the weather is back into the low 80's during the day and gets down into the 50's at night. Its very pleasant now, but in 1 month I'm going to be melting. :)
