Week 86 - February 8, 2016 - Hyderabad, India

Jai Telangana!!  Well you guys aren't going to believe this but my companion is getting transferred to Coimbatoire and he will be the Zone Leader and I'm staying in the some area and I'm training another new missionary.  I'm flying to Bangalore on Wednesday for the trainers meeting and maybe come back later in the week.  So for the next 12 weeks, I'll be here in Hyderabad.

We had a really great MLC and we saw a lot of the key indicators improve in the month of January.  We also talked about what are some of the qualities of a good companion and that was useful for a lot of the Zone members.  Nowadays, it seems that not many people are getting along well with their companions and I would say that the main problem is their lack of communication, so hopefully when I get my new companion later in the week we can get some sweet involvement.

One interesting story is that we found a new investigator, Krupakar.  He is the neighbor of the Sister that recently moved into the ward.  He's from Christian background and he doesn't really belong to any denomination mainly because he believes they were all created by man, but this guy can talk your ear off.  He thinks he knows English, but he has listening skills that he could improve on, but the crazy part is that when we shared the first vision with him he said he had the exact same experience and the people in the picture were the same he saw.  It was definitely really weird but he got pretty excited when we gave him the testimony of Joseph Smith to read from the Book of Mormon.

Also we need to move out of our apartment by Friday because the rent expired and we still haven't found a new place to live so we might be the first missionaries since Samuel Smith to sleep outside so hopefully we can find a good place by tonight or tomorrow.

Anyways all is well thanks again,
Elder Wakefield
