Week #54 - Chennai - "These New-Fangled Devices are Pretty Nifty!"

So to start I am currently experiencing my transfer sickness as I seem to do every time I change areas. We also have smartphones now, we activated them at zone conference this last week. I felt reservations at first about using these because I was looking forward to being away from them for a while but I am already seeing the benefits in these devices. 

On Sunday there was a 10 year old boy who walked in and sat next to me and my companion didn't recognize him as an investigator from our area so I asked the boy where he lived. He told me the place but since I've only been in this area for a week the location meant nothing to me. But then I remembered I had google maps on my phone and he put in his home address and we found out he was from the 2nd branch Elders area. So that was a way that I really get to see how these devices will help missionaries. 

So my area is Mogappair A and we have 6 Elders living in our apartment. 4 of us are in 4th branch(Mogappair) Elder Peters and Elder Raja, with me and my companionand the other 2 are in 2nd branch(Annanagar) Elder Ostler and Elder Nagaraj.

I went to the home of Abishek this week. He is a 13 year old boy who is super great! He comes to church each week and reads the Book of Mormon sometimes, as much as any 13 year old reads it. We are working on getting his mom to attend as well but it looks like she works on sunday sometimes so that will take some work.

Anyway I'm glad to be in another place where the lord needs me to serve!
