DANIEL: November 16, 2011

Back ground information for this spiritual moment was I have been struggling to get to know my Pithum Pura place.

My spiritual moment was when I brought an investigator to Institute. I had learned Moses did not become a prophet in a day. He prepared and did everything he could to prepare himself. I thought to myself Am I prepared so I can ask God for help. I thought to myself as a missionary I need to prepare myself to receive answer to my prayers. Now I have been working hard to learn the places. I brought my investigator so he can have revelatory experience but I was the one who had the revelatory experience. From this experience what I had learned was God works in different ways then man. Now for everything first I need to work and ask God for help. I am glad I learned this lesson. Love this gospel and every time helps me to improve my life.

love you all thank you for you love and support.

This week was really good. I went to Banglore to pick up my new companion and his name is E.Sambaria and he is from Delhi. The plane had to stop in Chennai for30 min and i was also temped to get out of the plane and to go and visit my family who leaves about an hour away from the airport. However i did control myself to stay in the airplene. hahaha..... I enjoyed my trip to Banglore and I will attached some pic's. My companion's both mom and dad are expired and my companion and his two brothers take care of themselves. I was really sadened to hear that also.

There are many people that we are teaching and this one man named Rajash who came to church for the first time. He absolutely loved the church and after our restortation discussion he excepted to take the baptism. We are very happy for him. I was also happy because many of our investicators came to church this week and this was especially hard for us, brining people to church each week.

Funny story: Last week we went to visit this young paster. He told us to come to his home. I was with the assistants to Pre.Funk. He taught me many lessons when i was with him. So we went to his house he was not there, but his phone was inside the house and we could clearly see that. So i called him and the phone rung ad rung. so we though that he went to somewhere. so we went to next street to visit another family and assistant was talking to that family and I called the paster on the phone. But he did not know that we went to his house earlier. He said that he was not home and he was in a bus stand and going somewhere. so we were talking to him on the phone and walking to his house at the same time. We went front of his house and he was inside the house still talking to us. He was really scared and little frightened to see us. He was lying the whole time and we caught him. I called him by his name and my assisatant kinda got mad at him. This paster was sweting so much. He was not interested to know about the gospel and he was really playing with us. After this we were laughing so hard what had happened. It was a good and funny experence.

I really love my mission and love this gospel.

DANIEL: November 2, 2011

Dear family and Friends.

This week's spiritual moment:

Last week was a wonderful because we had a lot of fun doing the Lord's work. We had been going to 30% family. Few times we went to their family we did not get to share any message with them. I thought to myself why are we wasting our time with them? On Friday we went to share a message they been praying little, and God has been answering their prayers. They were sharing the miracles with Elder Bommaji in Hindi and I felt the spirit very strong and we gave them a book of Mormon to read it. What I had learned is not to judge others quickly and “God’s ways are not my ways, His thoughts are not my thoughts” do what I need to do God will do His part. I also learned another lesson we may think no one is watching but always some one is watching. I’m so glad I had learned these lessons. I love this work and love my Savior.
How is every things. I am doing great. we had our first transfer but I am with my same companion and the same place. love you all. study the scriptures and Pray and have fun. 

Mom I forget to tell you last Sunday I had the chance to baptize a girl she was 16 years old I will send the pictures next week. 
Love you all,

Hi everyone, I am doing well here.

This week was little special.  The family that i told you about, the Kanababy family, their sons got baptized last week.  It was a great experence to baptism Gopi and Karthik was baptized by branch pre. Surya Rao.  These two boys are going to be the future missionaries.  The father and mother will take the baptism after their problems are all solved. very soon though.

We are going to have a District Conference this coming week and there are two members of the Quorum of the 70 coming to visit our branch. We are very excited to see them.

This week was little tough and little hard to find people to teach.  Everyone speaks Telugu language and some speaks English.

We had Depali last week, it is one of the biggest Hindu Festival in India.  It was awesome, there were sooo many fireworks and it was so loud that my companion and I could not hear each other when we were
having our Weekly Planning Meeting.  We went to top of the building and enjoyed watching the fireworks.

Happy Halloween!!!! MOM or DAD Did you distribute candies to the children? I remember that Danny and I doing it last time.  Abbey I hope that you got lots of candy and also you can have my Candy drawer to
keep all your halloween treats.

I love you very much.

Elder Aruldoss

Always happy when there's food!!
