"Overwhelming (In A Good Way)"

Good Morning,

Sorry this email is so short.  We had a pretty normal week.  Nothing out of the ordinary.  We shared the gospel and met a lot of great people.

We had the opportunity to go to Hindu prayers.  We met a man at the beginning of the last transfer and we taught him a lesson.  He wasn't interested but he did invite us to go to his birthday celebration where they would be doing the prayers.  We accepted of course and it was on Saturday.  It was a really cool experience.  They sing their prayers and the music is beautiful.  I love the style of music.  Their dresses and suits are beautiful, the decorations were beautiful, the colors were beautiful.  I am glad we got to go.  It was really cool.

There is a really nice family we met that has started feeding us every Sunday after church.  They are investigators.  Yesterday she fed us curried goat, curried mango, curried peas, and buss up shut.  It was delicious.  She is a wonderful cook.  I also tried some weird slimy purple fruit that was delicious and also a potato thing called edos.  It tasted very similar to a potato but it tasted like it had some seasoning but it was natural.  Very good.

We are working with so many people it is overwhelming sometimes (in a good way).  There are a lot of people searching for truth and I am glad I get to be a part of finding it.  They want something more but they can't find where to get it.  Serving a mission is the best decision I have made.

Miracle of the week:  Fred of course.  He is well on his way to baptism.  We fasted with him to help him with a Word of Wisdom problem this week and so far so good.  He is amazing.  He is coming to church, reading from the book of Mormon, reading general conference talks, praying... he is great.  He wants to be baptized in a river and we are looking for one.  He loves learning more and you can see the light in his eyes.  He is almost thirty years old and he has been searching for something.  He said he has gone about life with a hole but he feels like the hole is filling up.  He is amazing.

Thanks for all the support.  The work is doing great.
