I just had THE BEST lunch! Have you ever tried Himalayan food? I got a chicken curry dish and warm pita bread. Find a Himalayan restaurant... you won't be disappointed. Also I gotta mention, I've come across a few Turkish toilets here. It's literally a stall with a hole in the ground. I need to tone my legs to use these bathrooms.
Now on to the good stuff... It's been a good week! Motra Henderson and I found a lot of opportunities to serve members this week. S was sick all week and her brother just past. She graciously let us come over, so we had a lesson, colored with her kids, and sang a few hymns. Then we went to S's home and helped her with piles of dishes that were piled all over the kitchen. We also went to the J family's home. They were in really bad living conditions before, but they were finally able to move into a nicer apartment. We prayed for them and their brand new apartment. It was great to get to know the members here better. The church is really small, and everyone comes from different walks of life. But they're a great support for each other; it's pretty cool to witness.
Also, our investigator, B, invited us over to her parent's home last night. We drove to their little fshat (village) and met them in their nice home her brother built them. It was a full house with B's parents, brothers and sisters, and their children. We taught the Restoration lesson to them and they loved it. By the end we were all kneeling around in a big circle for the closing prayer. I almost felt like I was home again. They were all super warm and friendly. I have a really good feeling about B and her family. They seem prepared for this beautiful message of the gospel.
I could never describe it as perfectly as Elder Uchdorf: "The joyous news of the gospel is this: because of the eternal plan of happiness provided by our loving Heavenly Father and through the infinite sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we can not only be redeemed from our fallen state and restored to purity, but we can also transcend mortal imagination and become heirs of eternal life and partakers of God's indescribable glory." This truly is cause for glad tidings of great joy!
Have an awesome week, ju dua!
