Sunil Kumar baptism
Coimbatore district leader and wife
It was a pretty busy week for us, but a solid one. We had an awesome week.
Our week started with an exchange to Coimbatore. Coimbatore is kind of a crazy place right now, the missionaries there were not allowed to proselyte the majority of this past week due to protests against Christians, instigated by a pro-Hindu political party. What a unique situation, eh? The exchange went well though, we were able to help the Coimbatore zone leaders make an action plan to help them put the Church's amazing Christmas initivative to good use. On a tasty note, I had some of the best Indian breakfast (aka "tiffins") I've ever had. It seems Tamil Nadu is famous for their breakfast and I now see why.
Our Thanksgiving dinner this past week consisted of a tasty beef roast and some chicken (slightly dry though, almost like turkey haha). Unfortunately, the only turkey we were able to find was something like $15-$20 per kilogram. We decided to forego the turkey this year haha. It's interesting, the turkey shop (if you will) we found was in a densely populated Muslim area. I thought that was funny haha.
The highlight of this week was undoubtedly the baptism of our dear brother, Sunil Kumar Singh. His baptism service was unique because it was held before sacrament meeting at 8:30 in the morning, while most baptismal services are conducted immediately after church. He said the water was cold, but afterwards, he felt the warmth and peace that comes from the remission of sins. Brother Sunil Kumar has great faith, we are so happy for him. He is already so excited to receive a calling in the Church, I know that he will be a might instrument in the hands of the Lord.
I hope everyone has a great week!
Keep the faith.
