Whats up everyone! Trying not to get too trunky out here but it is kind of hard knowing I'll be home about halfway through next week.
Well I got the news on Wednesday night that I was actually going to go back to Vizag for the last week of my mission so here I am. (Editor Note: Elder Wakefield told us in a separate e-mail that another Elder who had been in Visag had his visa expire and thus had to leave the country and since Elder Wakefield was in a tri-companionship, he got the call fill that spot) This morning, I got to the Bangalore airport and I had forgotten how hot it was here so when they opened the doors to the airplane, I was like oh nooooo! Then i get my bag and head out and I'm looking for the driver and no body. I had to borrow a couple of peoples phones and I called the Gajuwaka Elders because I still remembered their number (Elder Wakefield served in nearby Gajuwaka about 12 months prior) but no answer and I eventually walked out to main road and caught a share auto to their apartment which is just nearby. So eventually, I made it to their apartment and here I am.
My new companion is elder Touthang from Bangalore. We are the zone leaders for the next week and I guess we are just going to do as much as we can this week.
I just want to say thanks for all of the support and encouragement that everyone has given me for the last 2 years and that I really know this is the work of the Lord. Before I came out out, I used to think that no one was willing to change their lives for the Gospel but I have seen so many lives blessed from following the commandments. I know without a doubt that there is a God and that He knows each one of us. I now that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church on the earth because it has the priesthood authority of the Lord. I know that there is a prophet of God and his name is Thomas S. Monson.
Love you guys and can't wait to see/ talk to you guys next week.
