Week #38 - Ramamurthy Nagar - "Happy Good Friday!"

I mean Easter. Almost forgot that was the real holiday since it seems like they celebrate Good Friday more than Easter since Friday is a government holiday and Easter is not.

We had an activity on Saturday, the Easter Open House. We spent Friday setting it up and a little bit on Saturday. The Easter Open House is 5 rooms representing Jesus' last actions, such as the Last supper, The Garden of Gethsemane, The cross, The Empty Tomb and then the Book of Mormon. We had over 100 people show up which is really good for a rented building, over 30 of them were non-members. We taught a lot in each of these rooms so that people could understand a little better Jesus Christs last experiences.

The best part was that we had one of our investigators Prettisha helped us set up on for about five hours and we got to teach all the while though she doesn't need too much teaching. She already has an amazing relationship with God and she looks to him in every single thing she does. 

Yesu and his family came back from their native home yesterday so we will be going to meet them today. I am excited to see them again and see if they remember anything that we taught them before. 

Thursday was voting day here so we had to stay inside until 6 o'clock then we went to a members home where we got rained in and had to stay for a little while. 

On Sunday I got to watch Suresh Antony bless the sacrament so that was a special experience and I finally got to sing in the meeting after about a month of trying to and not being able to. It was a very great Easter.
