January 3rd Week

I will try to watch for some pictuers, and its good to hear that molly is busy with the baby's, I am just a little frusturated that I hadent heard anything about it, but thats life right???
So this weekend was Zone confrence, and I had a great time, we went to Visack, and I got to go on exchange with my MTC companion, and we stayed at his appartment. we learned a ton about the mission, and about the people here, we had interveiews with President Nichols, and when I was in my interview, he asked how I felt about being in the field for a month, and I looked at him and said " right, its only been a week." but then I realized that it has been a month, and I have been on my mission for two months, and I really honestly never felt it go by. I felt bad that I haddnt realized, so when I got to my appartment this morning, I looked at the calender that Alexis gave to me, and I saw that I had only crossed off until the 11th, and that today was the 21st. I was quite supprised.
so a neat Experience... well, we met these three young men, and we had set an appointment to come back and meet with them at a later date, and the buncked us, but then we where riding around for some finding, and they where out whare we had met them. well, we said hello, and they explained that they had been out of station and had forgotten that they had set an appointment, we asked them if we could share the message, and they said yes, but we would have to do it rite there... well we said a prayer, and started, and about three minuets into it, a man came and told them in telegu (the local language) that they souldnt listen to us and that they should go up stairs. well the one boy said " give us a minuete, but we will be right back" we said okay, and waited, well the man left, and the boys came back with 3 more boys. well they then explained that thier father is hindu, and that he hates christions, and that the boys where interested, and wanted to hear about our message, and asked us if we could go down the street, and teach so that when thier father came back, he wouldnt see them. so of course we said yes.. we then tought the rest of the lesson, and answered all of thier quiestions, and they then said that they wanted to meet with us again, so we set another appointment with them on thursday.
so here are some really neat things that I have eaten.
Non: its like a flower tortella,but it rises, and has butter all over it.
Butter chicken: AMAYZING!! Its my favorite, I think that everytime I eat at sri kanya (a "nice" resturant) I get it.
and Onion curd: curd mixed with cilantro, onions, and some pepers, but it depends. I absulutly love it, but I have to be carfull, because when I do eat it, I tend to get really tiered after.
but any kind of food here is wonderful, and all of the currys are really good.
I am loving the fruit, I wish I had more!!
so I have a request for all of you reading this, will you please pray for the Vanidi family, their the ones with 16 grandchildern, and I really am hoping that they will except baptizem, we feel that thier ready, and we are going to set them with a date tonignt or tommorrow, I really have come to love them, and I keep feeling that I have more to do with them then just teaching and baptixing, I dont know what, but I just know what I feel.
Well as I said life in india is great, I just keep thinking about everything that I am doing, and kind of wishing that It wont stop, I really hope that one day all of you can meet all of these wonderfull people.
I Love you all, and I am praying for you all as well.
Please be carfull out there, and know that the lord loves all of you, and he wants you to return to him, but in the time that he has planned, and not any sooner. I love you all so very much.
