Week 90 - March 8, 2016 - Hyderabad, India

Welcome to March everybody!  Although the winter has already ended it definitely feels like summer here, but none the less, we are surviving nicely.

This week was ok and it involved a lot of finding and teaching to some of the investigators that we had.  And if there is one thing that I learned about investigators preparing for their baptism, is that Satan tries so hard to stop them from making covenants with the Lord.  We had a brother named Naveen and our WML's referral who had his baptism planned for this Sunday, so on Saturday night we go over to his house and our district Leader gives the interview.  He passes and everything is ok then that evening we go clean and fill up the font at the church.  Then Sunday Morning at about 11:00 a.m, this brother calls me asking to postpone his baptism to the following Sunday due to the death of his Uncle at their native place which is like a 5 hour drive away.  I probably spent 10 minutes talking to this guy on the phone about how we could postpone the date but today was the day that Heavenly Father wanted him to be baptized.  It was really hard to convince him but in the end he understood that it was important for him to be baptized.  And I think we both had a really spiritual experience.  

We have a missionary fireside this Saturday and we are taking a picture with all of the Members of the Church, Actives, Less-actives, Investigators, Recent Converts, everybody to try and help motivate the members to find some of these people that are a part of their ward.

We went to this Birla Planetarium and watched this movie about how aliens may or may not once existed on Mars.  Anyways this week should be really awesome.
