Park Kissing

March 16

One funny story from the week. So, one day Elder Peter was telling me about Delhi, and it went something like this. "There is a very famous park in Delhi, a park filled with sin and temptation. This park is only for couples, and even though there is no wall or anything around it, couple inside the park are breaking the Law of Chastity!" At this point I'm thinking "What in the world?! Is this for real??" But then he goes on to explain, in complete seriousness, "Ya, in the park the couples are... kissing!! Kissing! Right where everyone can see them!" Haha... guess that just goes to show the difference in morals in America and India. =P

There is man attending our branch for this month that is from the USA. I asked him why he is here, and he said it is for medical reasons. You came to India for a doctor?? Apparently the medical stuff he needs done would cost $10,000 in the US, but only $3,000 here. Well worth the cost of the plane ticket!

Speaking of medical stuff, I have a story for that also. Remember how like 10 years ago I had a really bad stomach ache, and all of you were thinking I was a baby, but then I went into the doctor and had to get surgery? Well, the same thing happened again! Not me this time though, fortunately. One of my apartment mates, Elder Cloward, had a lot of pain in his gut area for a few days, and finally went into the hospital, and after doing some scans they saw his appendix was inflamed and was about to burst, so they took it out... wow! He is all fine now though. 

While he was gone, along with his companion Elder Thompson, our apartment was a lot of different. It was MUCH more clean, quiet, peaceful, and obedient. But... it was also much more boring. It made me think about you two, mom and dad, what it's gonna be like for you after this summer. Me and Noah will both be gone, and all you will have left is Abbey. I'm sure that will give a much different feel to the home. 

This week we found an AWESOME investigator family! NINE people were in the home when we taught them! And they were all girls! Good thing we had not one but TWO brothers with us on exchange, because that helped to balance out the hormones in the room. haha. They were a referral from Keerthi Sagar (who was on exchange with us to show us this home, along with our EQP Deepak). Apparently they are friends with Keerthi's cousin Nancy. Interesting, he doesn't even really know them but he still referred them! If only all members could share the Gospel like Keerthi... We taught them the Restoration, and they all seemed to be fairly accepting of it. They all agreed to read 3 Nephi chapter 11 and pray to know that the Book of Mormon is true. It was a little intimidating teaching so many brand new investigators, but all in all it went really well. 

Hopefully they will all receive an answer this week that the book is true! =)
