End of Goa

First off, I am sorry I did not keep this updated very well. To be honest, I was just too lazy to write in it. So here is my final entry.



As many as you know, I am now back home in SLC. I came back on Friday, Sept. 22. I came without telling anyone and showed up at home suprising everyone. It was quite an adventure.



During my final week in India, I left Goa to go to Hyderabad. Hyderabad is one of my favorite places that I served in on my mission. I started my mission there and ended there and also served there in the middle of my mission. I know that place very well and have a lot of close friends there.



After staying there for a week, a lot changed - and now I am engaged!



During my 2nd time serving in Hyderabad, I met a wonderful sister named Jhansi Rani and her brother Manohar. They became close friends of mine as we took them on exchanges and had many FHE's with them. They are the only 2 members in their family of 5 and their father just passed away this last year.



Well after the mission, Jhansi and I kept in close contact. We became very close friends. During my time in India, I had planned on visiting her again. Much to my suprise, while visiting her after the mission, my relationship with her changed. We both felt something special was their and she told me her feeling about how she prayed and its a long story that I'll have her tell later. So I figured I needed to pray and find out too, so after 2 days I did - and recieved an answer. And now we are engaged!



We are planning to get Married as soon as she can get her passport and I can figure out what I need to do to get her here. But right now we are set for some time around May 2009.



I will not be using this Blog as much, but I will make sure to let each of you know when and where this will be happening, and if you have any question please email, or post a comment here.



I love you all!
