my companion and I with a member that visited our home group from Hyderabad.
This week was as quick as it was humid haha. We had zone conference this past week in Rajahmundry so we took a bus and traveled four hours to get there.
Rajahmundry is a pretty amazing place, it recently became a stake in December and currently houses the largest Church building in India. All of this is interesting because Rajahmundry is a straight village haha, it's awesome. I have heard about Rajahmundry my whole mission so it was fun to finally travel there and see what all the hype is about. One of my favorite things about the place is that they have this soda called Artos that is almost identical in taste, consistency, and color to Red Creme Soda, so that's rad.
The coolest experience this week: Elder Ramishetty and I were walking around our area and felt impressed to walk down a certain road. As we walked, we saw a home with a sign outside that read, "Zion Home for the Blind and Differently Abled," which naturally caught our attention. Outside the gated home, we saw a handicapped man and spoke with him about who we were and what message we share. He was so excited that he invited us in and introduced us to the director of the home. The director then gathered the twenty plus residents of the home, all of whom were either lame or blind, and sat them down on the porch of the home. We sat down with them and taught and testified of God's plan for them, that they are children of God, and that as part of His marvelous plan, they would one day receive perfect bodies. They loved it and invited us to come back this week. It was one of the most tender experiences of my mission, I was nearly in tears.
I hope everyone has a great week, keep the faith!!
