We went to an Indian place for lunch one day. They had a lunch buffet as most Indian places do. It was great food!
And this was Elder Bates first time having Indian food! What!? A man working there, from India, had the accent and everything, asked what church we were from, I said the Mormon church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He said "oh! Latter Day Saints! I went to some of your services back in India! I have one of your
Bibles!" Meaning the Book of Mormon. He asked when our service were and asked if we had an office where he could talk to someone. We explained that it's all volunteer, like the bishop and stake president, but we explained that we are full time missionaries. We gave him our number and he said he will definitely call us! Then his boss was coming so he had to stop talking about the church, haha! He was awesome!!
Pretty much all these pictures are from last P day. We went up a little past Mount Shasta and Weed to Pluto's Cave. It went back almost a mile. It's apparently a cave from lava or something. We went all the way to the back (we later found out that only about a fourth of the way in is the "safe point" #whoops) but at the back I suggested
we say a prayer, just because it's kind of special and close back there. We turned all our lights off, which made it pitch black, like you can't see your hand in front of your face. They made me say it because I thought of the idea, haha, but it was really good to connect to Heavenly Father and each other in the back of a cave. Where there
seems to be no light, we could feel a light from Heavenly Father.
