Week 11:Life is to be enjoyed,not just endured


This past week my trainer left for home. My new companion is Sister Botcha. She is from Vizag and is very tiny. 
So Bobby said he will be baptized next year. He says he wants to start his life new and he will do that starting next year. That makes me sad. But my companion and I are constantly praying for him. We met quite a few new people last week.  And again I was reminded of how simply God works. There was this one lady we were trying to meet but we couldn't get hold of her and didn't even know her name so it was getting very hard to meet with her but then,  day before yesterday we were just passing past her workplace and saw her sitting outside. I didn't recognize her but she was smiling at me so I went up to talk to her and realized that it was the same person we were looking for! So after she finished work we walked with her to her house and were able to get her contact details, her name a…

Week 10: Jancy was baptized

Hiii, First of all, Elder Massey is serving in Rajahmundry as well!!! We will be in the same district!! We're really excited to be serving together! We started teaching 3 new beautiful families today and one of them is the one that sells coconut water right in front of our apartments! They're really sweet and interested in learning the gospel.  Jancy was baptized yesterday! Boby said he wants to be baptized next month so we're hoping to work with him starting this week. My companion goes home this week and i will have a new companion. My training is almost over so I am......nervous xD  We had splits last week and i think i can handle it, but it stills makes me nervous a lot of times :P *pray for me :P* 
The heat is increasing here but we have fun plans to work during the summer. I love you all!
Love, Sister Massey


This week was amazing, as usual, :P We, as a district, set up a table in front of the church building with church books and magazines for people to take home and share the gospel. We were so surprised at how many people actually showed up and were interested! we gave out many book of Mormons and church material. It was a wonderful experience.  Jancy will be getting baptized next week! We're so excited for her!! I loved the conference!!  It was so good to be reminded that we should not fear and just have faith in the Lord that he will provide us with ways to do His work.  I am truly blessed to be here sharing the gospel and meeting wonderful and such beautiful people each week.  I am doing so good! and I pray for all of you always!  I love you all so much and I know that our Heavenly Father too loves every single one of you a lot more than we can ever comprehend. Which is why He gave us His Only Begotten Son to die for our sins. I know Jesus has felt every single pain we feel…

Week 8: Finally accepted the invitation to be baptised after 18 years!

Hey, all!
This week was amazing! sorry, i sent those emails earlier just with the pictures. We had 3 more baptisms this Sunday and we are really happy that the JUthuka family is complete in the gospel now.  We were also able to have sister Laxmi baptized. She had been coming for 3 years. We went to a temple here today, the Korukonda temple. We had to climb more than 500 steps tp get to the top. It was a fun and and a very sweaty experience. 
this past week something happened that we hadn't expected at all. So this family, the Seerapu family has been attending church for a long time(18 years). All his 3 sons have served their missions and are married to beautiful girls who also have served successful full-time missions but brother Seerapu is not yet baptized. We talked to him once and he said that he has many issues with his work and other things and he is fine like this. Many missionaries have tried to convince him but nothing has worked. We visited their house this week and talke…

Week 7: Our First Baptisms in Rajahmundry

Yesterday was a big day! Our investigator's sister Chandra, sister Suvarna and her husband brother Pandu were all baptized! and we were so happy for them! There were many confusions about brother pandu's family's baptisms but with lots and lots of prayers, he was able to manage everything, get his boss's permission to have Sundays off and come to church and be baptized. It was a wonderful experience to see them all in church and my favorite p[art is to see all of them being actually involved in the church!  Sister Chandra's kids, it was really hard to get them to meet with us. We even almost gave up but last week her son himself called us and asked us to start the discussions with him and his sister! We were so happy!! They both will be getting baptized next Sunday and the best thing is that their family will now be complete in the church! it would be beautiful to see them getting sealed in the temple! Sister Laxmi is progressing really well and is preparing…


First of all, i am sorry for not being able to email yesterday! It was a crazy day.  I am doing great and am so so so happy for all our investigators who are progressing! Sister Chandra, Sister Suvarna and Brother Pandu are ready to be baptized this coming Sunday! Sister Jancy and her husband Bobby need some more time so we are just helping them figure things our to be baptized. Vineet is very eager to learn about Christ! and says he surely wants to get baptized this year! We have also been able to meet with Brother Sekar and have started the discussions with him. He is happy to learn of God and His teachings. On Saturday after our very first zone conference, we had an opportunity to be a part of a family's baptism. Their son is on a mission and was able to be here for his family's baptism. His dad and grandparents were getting baptized. He with us how just last week he was telling his companion that his family will never change and will never accept to be baptized and h…
