Another Great Week!

Another great week!
            First thing, Elder Botcha is teaching me how to make some pretty proper curry. I am getting pretty good. I asked his mum to send us some more recipes so we can make some more – it’s good stuff.
            Also we found two families this week. Two families is a ton for us. It has been so good. One of them is a single mum and her two daughters. Her name is Sheryl. We shared some videos with her and bore our testimonies that the gospel blesses families, and talked more about how it can help theirs. They loved it and we committed them to say a prayer as a family. It was such a spiritual lesson, and they called us the next day to say that they said a prayer and they felt so peaceful.
            The other one is Ashwani who I talked about last week, and his son. The mum is less active and the son wants to get baptized. Ashwani has been baptized before into a different church and has a concern about priesthood and stuff, but we are sharing the restoration with him this week and it’s going to be powerful! We had a good lesson with them last time and this week will be good as well.
            Also we are teaching a cool girl named Carly. She is 24. We knocked on her door when we were tracting by a member and she was the first door we knocked on. She invited us in. We pretty much talked about faith and how the gospel blesses families and she loved it! We shared Alma 32 and you could literally see her face light up as we read it. So cool. She has been reading lots of the Book of Mormon since then. 
            It is so cool to have investigators that you reallly love, that you really get along with. It is good and it helps me really focus on them and how I can help them accept the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. It has been a very tiring and rewarding experience. I look forward to meeting with all of them this week and we are planning on bringing some members with us. The more the merrier!
            The gospel is true. I know that happiness can come from understanding the simplicity of the gospel and then living it. We can accomplish so much as we do this.
            The pictures are of me taking a break by the duck pond in town centre, and my dank curry! The third one is of Hitchin Town Centre. It has some pretty cool cobblestoned streets and shops and whatnot.

Love you all.

            Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that Emilie will be getting baptized this Saturday! Woohoo! I am very excited for her.
