Tell me how the superbowl goes. Maybe the teams don't matter but it sure is fun to
watch and be with friends and eat junk food. What's going on at work? It sounds like
you're working very hard, but you're changing jobs? I'll continue to pray for you
and family of course.
Pongal is... I'm not sure. A full week of holiday for some Hindu reason. It means
that nothing gets done... more. There are tons of holidays and plenty of days for
taking off of work and not going to school. Which is sometimes good for teaching,
but sometimes it means that everyone leaves Raj. My companion is excellent. He's
been out for 13 months now. He's a relatively new convert so his testimony is strong.
I've notice that for relatively recent-converts that they tend to either be very
gung-ho or pretty passive. They have strong testimonies, but sometimes they like to
say things very boldly and quickly. They don't realize that they were taught slowly
and line upon line. Haha, they challenge the beliefs of others quickly and love to
demand that investigators believe instantly.
The most recent letter that I've received from you was a drawing of myself looking
much thinner than I actually am. It was quite entertaining. I also received a package
from sister Dickson. Please tell her thank you very very much and the contents were
delicious (what was left of them, seriously, the Indian postal people opened the box
and ate half of the butterfinger bar and a package of koalas (this is a fact, it
wasn't rats.)) And for mom: they sell or sold those koalas in America also, some
people had them in their lunchboxes in elementary school, they were good enough to
have remembered them that far back.
I'm working hard of course. We've *almost* moved into the new apartment, we'll be
shopping for a fridge, washing machine, and stove today, so hopefully we'll be in
later this week.
I love you soooo very much, and I'm working on humility every day.
Keep sharing the gospel!
