May 16, 2016 - Bengaluru, Whitefield

Well Elder Thompson is with me again, and wow.......we really were able to pick up right where we left off a year ago.  We are still super tight and really enjoy together and work really hard.  We had a SUPER successful week!!! Elder Thompson is just so easy to work with and we are doing awesome.  I think we can really turn the work around here. 

We taught a lot more than is usually taught in this area! And also we set Sindu and Swathi with baptism dates as well as Babitha.  We met with her this week and she had come to church a couple weeks in a row so she told us she started coming back because she wants to be baptized!!! So cool.  We are excited.  We also got a referral from a cool member named Moses.  This girl's name is Revathy.  She is 15 is so sweet and really is excited to learn!!

We also taught another new guy named Raj Kumar who we really think is going to get baptized.  Also, a couple of weeks ago, we were teaching a guy in a restaurant and another guy comes up to us and basically told us he overheard us talking about God so he wanted to know what we believe.  So we find out his named is Shabbir, so he is a Muslim guy but he wanted to meet with us and learn about what we believe so we met him at the church a couple days ago and had an awesome lesson with him.  So that was a cool unique experience. 

Yesterday was Stake Conference and it was awesome.  At the beginning of my mission i attended a District Conference here in Bengaluru but this time it was sooooo different being a Stake.  It was awesome!!! Such a different feeling being a stake.  

But things are going pretty well now so we are super excited.  We are hoping we can keep it running and keeping up the increasing member trust.  We are trying to work more closely with the Bishop and it seems to be paying off.  Things are looking up:)
