Crazy Weather Here in Rajahmundry - May 30, 2016

Hello everyone,

We experienced some crazy weather here in Rajahmundry. It was rainy.  It was super windy and it's 46 degree Celsius  with lots of humidity. We have one Investigator with whom we had the longest lesson of our mission.  It was more than a 4 hour lesson.  We used a lot of questions and lots of different answers and examples to help him understand. Finally we had YES for Baptism, but he is struggling to quit using Coffee.  Now we are trying to help him to leave coffee so that he  can be Baptized soon.

We have one other Investigator who is a cousin of our member family.  She has a good knowledge of the Bible and she started reading the Book of Mormon before we had a lesson with her. She is super curious about the Book of Mormon and our church. We are doing our best to help her .

 This week  I liked these verses very much which I also shared with two of our members. 

Here they are: 
Alma 32:41-43
  41)But if ye will nourish the word, yea, nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with  great diligence,and with patiencelooking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be tree springing up unto everlasting life.
 42) And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is white, yea, and pure above all that  is pure; and ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, neither shall ye  thirst.
 43 Then, my brethren, ye shall reap the rewards of your faith, and your diligence, and patience, and  long-suffering, waiting for the tree to bring forth fruit unto you.
Loads of love,
Elder Shrestha

I saw your dad in the Church last Sabbath and chatted for a brief. He is such a sweet individual. 

I hear occasionally from your brother as well. You have a great family.
