The tenth week...

Elder Sorensen's time in India has reached double digit weeks! Yay!

Nothing too new is happening. Missionary work is normal. I loved seeing the pics of other missionaries and how they have mountains and blue skies behind them. The theme seemed to be sticking your hands up in the air so I will do that next time.

We had a pretty good week - 14 new investigators. That’s pretty good even for here. My number average has been 9 a week - so 14 is good. We are teaching all of them this week. A few are already set and some are a little slower due to English - but all have given us nice referrals. Suresh is set for Feb. 1, 2009. He’s way awesome. We set him on meeting one. Another set for the 8th is Krishna Reddy. He’s had a rough life. His girlfriend of 14 years left him one day and married some Hindu. He loves Jesus and the Atonement.

Another Family is Vinay by4. His son saw us on the street and I asked, "Brother, anyone liking Jesus?" and he said "I do. My family also." So we taught them. We went back yesterday and Vinay brought us to some new potentials. He took us in his car. It was nice to be in a car. The little things in life. lol. But while in his car we both noticed a funny smell, matches, and a skull pipe...usually for becoming acquainted with Mary Jane. So we will teach Word of Wisdom next. Hopefully "It wasn’t his." like they all say. lol.

The week was good. I am safe and so is Dwight. Thanks to everyone for their love and support. Just like you Jensen, letters are much appreciated - even though it’s a little more expensive. Thanks for all the prayers also.

I love all y’all.
Elder Sorensen
