Call it an ethnic rollercoaster party at Chili's Indiranagar!
with our littlest (and by far cutest) investigators: Krithik is on the right and Joshua is on the left
This week was, I believe, one of the most productive weeks that Indiranagar has had this year. We found quite a few new solid investigators and identified even more potential investigators, of whom we have made plans to meet with this week.
All is well out here in Indiranagar, and this past week I passed my year mark! Officially over the hump now, I guess. Pretty bittersweet. BUT, to celebrate, where did we have lunch that day? You guessed it: CHILI'S!!! Hahaha. I'm telling you guys, Indian Tex-Mex will be a hit back home soon enough, just wait (; I will send some pictures to prove it.
One cool experience we had this week was with one of our little investigators, Yuven. He is nine years old and seriously a genius--and he speaks better English than I do! This week we were talking to him about the Book of Mormon. He said that he's had some trouble reading because of how difficult the words are, but he's doing his best to read every single day. He told us that even though it's been difficult, he's been blessed for his efforts: last week, in school, his class had an English spelling exam. He said there were a number of difficult words, one of which was the word: transgression. He said he was SO happy that he'd read the Book of Mormon because he remembered reading it recently--and he spelled it correctly! He got one of the highest scores in his class and was one of the only students who spelled "transgression" correctly! I thought that was a neat little experience.
I hope everyone has a solid week this week and enjoy conference weekend!! They don't broadcast general conference here until the following week because they have to translate the messages into Tamil, Telugu, and other native languages here. Pretty cool, but no spoilers please! (;
Keep the faith.
