Bits & Pieces

I just wanted to tie up some loose ends and so decided to post "Bits & Pieces".

Brother & Sister Kumar came over for lunch on Saturday.  I made Indian food for them and it turned out wonderful.  I made Veg Biryani and Chicken Tikka Masala.  We also had Dahl and Rotis which Kannagi had made the day before.  They loved the food, so I was glad.

By the time I remembered my camera, Milsha was asleep.

My Friend
This week, Jasmin, a sweet sister from our Branch, got her mission call.  She has been called to serve in the India New Delhi Mission.  This is the first time a sister missionary has been called to serve in India in many years.  It's wonderful for her to be able to prepare for her Philippines MTC date in Dec!  Good for you, Jasmin!  We love you!  You will do wonderfully!

Independence Day in India

 These musicians came playing and singing outside our window late in the day.
 They looked very festive and it was fun to see and hear them.
Of course, they are looking to be paid for their performance.  It's a little hard to pay from the 3rd floor.
These guys were putting a double ladder up into the tree in front of the Office.  I never found out why.  Some men came along and pitched in to help so it got done.
The ladder looked a little rickety and I never saw if anyone actually went up.
Elder Wigg and I watched the little parade.  The steps and railings were decorated for the day.
 This band was going past the front of the Office so we went down to watch and listen.
 Not only was it a celebration of Independence Day, but it was a political rally in support on a candidate, as well.

 This is a new companionship in our Branch, Indiranagar Branch. Elder Henrie and Elder P. Kumar.

Brother Rajan Tewari (formerly Elder Tewari) has returned to India for a month visit.  He's looking so good.  It's good to see you, brother!

Sometimes I'll get pictures from other people which were taken a long time ago.  Rather than go back and find that blog, I just thought I would add in a couple random shots here.
This is Usha and myself with Julie, all from the old 1st Branch.  Photo taken at YW Camp.

 These photos were given to me by the Kumar's, taken in Hong Kong. I always want to have my backpack with my camera, water, sun glasses, money, id, all my necessary stuff!
This shot is a little blurry, but I wanted to prove the progress made with the Kumar children.
Milsha is actually holding my hand!  That is real progress!
