Week #28 - Ramamurthy Nagar - "10,000 years will give you such a crick in the neck!"

So this week was pretty busy with our busiest day being Saturday where I unfortunately woke up with some neck pain. Still went about all the work it just made it a little harder. 

Calvin couldn't come to church this last week as he got sick. Brother Babu's foot is still the size of a small moon so they also couldn't come but we gave him a priesthood blessing on Friday and he is going to see a different doctor so hopefully they can find the cause of the swelling. 

At one of my voice lessons with Charles I felt the impression to ask him if he wanted to be taught the gospel but I had already learned from him that he was now going to his friends church because he promised him so I didn't say anything. It was at this point that he said,"Hey is there some way I can learn more about your church?" It was like a slap in the face to me. I can't believe I didn't listen but the Lord always finds a way. Anyway he lives in the ward boundaries of Lingarajapuram so those Elders will teach him the gospel and I will continue to teach him music. 

I seem to find a new language every single new family I talk to. There is a member family in our ward named the Touthangs from one of the North Indian States really close to China. The native language that they speak is Cookie. No joke. It doesn't have writing anymore but it might have been what turned into the Chinese alphabet. 

Transfers got pushed back a week because President Mortensen is going to Hong Kong for some meetings so we will see in a couple weeks what changes come. I am really learning a lot in this area and I am excited to see what other things come about.
