Week 104: His final he's HOME

Dear Family & Friends,

Well this is the last email that you will get from me as a missionary. This past week was awesome! Conference was defiantly the highlight. The talk that I think I will try to apply is the talk given by Elder Rasband. He talked about how important it is to act on a prompting that we feel from the Holy Ghost. I know when I go home that I will try not to get lost in all the noise, but try to listen to the still small voice.

I've enjoyed these past 6 weeks with Elder Chidithoti. We've shared lots of laughs and memories together.

I had 3 "farewell" dinners with members this last week. Even after the Sunday afternoon session the Branch President gave me a farewell cake. It came as a total surprise. We also had two dinner appointments last night. I was defiantly feeling the love from the Branch Members. I think there are a couple other members that are treating me one last time before I'm off.

Oh and packing my luggage is going to be a pain in the butt!

This has been a great experience. I've had my fair share of struggles. But I know that my experience through those struggles will build me that much stronger at home. I love this church and all the imperfectly perfect members. I'm going to miss this crazy city. I don't know when I'll be back but I know I will have to return soon.

Elder Dusara

Thank you to all those that supported Elder Dusara during the past couple years. He had an incredible time in Ventura CA and New Delhi. For those who have Facebook, i was able to hide and follow him as he came out of the train up to baggage claim in Seattle yesterday. Worked perfectly...enjoy

Week 103: Aradhana gets confirmed. The final zone conference...


Yesterday Aradhana was able to be confirmed by President Johnson John. We even started teaching her about the importance of temples after church. Also, I was able to give my last testimony yesterday. I received a warm thank you from the branch for my service. Some of the members keep on getting me mixed up with Elder Basil. A few of them went up to him and wished him luck as he returns home to the United States.

I had my last zone conference last Wednesday. I had a blast and learned a lot. I sat in the back and was secretly sharing peanut M&Ms with the Elders around me. I shared my last testimony with them and of course I cried because of how much I'm going to miss this place.

Last week Brother Suresh and his family fed us BBQ Chicken, pasta, beans, and potato salad. I told them that I've never eaten potato salad before and they laughed because they were surprised I hadn't. For dessert they made a Fruit Parfait. It was the first time that I've had a parfait before as well. It was dang good too.

I know this is my last full week. I'm really going to miss this place a lot. I'm very blessed that I've been able to be a healthy and successful these past two years.

I'm now able to say this. Mom... Dad.. I'll see you next week! :)
