Week #47 - Gajuwaka - "NO WILSON!!"

I lost my volleyball... I hope y'all get that reference. Shouldn't be too difficult. So Elder Wilson got transferred to Hyderabad, which is really strange since we thought he would finish here. He only has three more weeks so a transfer was the last thing we thought would happen. I'll miss him we became really good friends. 

My new companion is Elder Thivyanathan who is from Coimbatore. But luckily he has served in a lot of Telugu speaking areas so even though his native language is Tamil he has learned a good bit of Telugu. Elder Wilson and I were having a hard time finding people who spoke English.

Sorry not too much time here today either. The net shops didn't have any power in our area so we had to travel a little bit. We had to spend a lot of time to pick up my new companion and then get to a shop.

Some of the members brought a cake for Elder Wilson yesterday when they learned that he was leaving. They still had the tradition of feeding cake to the person who is celebrating so that was fun to watch Elder Wilson go through that with a lot of the members.

I will have more to talk about next week I am sure. Once I get to know my companion and try to help more people.

I'll talk to you all next week!
