Wonderfully, it is the day that the former Elder Westwood returned to visit his mission with his grandfather, President Gill, the first mission president in the India Bangalore Mission.

We really enjoyed the Fireside but especially President Gill's talk. He spoke about being called as a mission president and also about his conversion to the gospel as a boy. We heard about the early beginnings of home groups in India and how that has grown into branches and now some wards in 1 stake in Hyderabad. It is so wonderful to see the growth and hear about the changes first hand.
