South Carolina! September 4, 2012

 Here is the most recent letter from Elder Nair! He is officially now in South Carolina!

Hey sorry it's taken so long to write back. I didn't get a real P-day since yesterday and since it was labor day the library was closed, so we're doing our email today.
That's so great to hear about Brandon and his family! Keep up the good work with them. I know Heavenly Father will bless you with the knowledge of things to do for them as you continue to recognize his hand in the work. Tell Arianne congratulations for me! That's awesome news. She's going to love being on a mission.
I arrived in South Carolina just fine and am doing well. We arrived at the mission home shortly after we landed. President and Sister Holm are awesome. We had a little bit of orientation for the first two days while we were at the mission home. On Wednesday we had transfers so we all found out where we were going and then went straight there. I'm serving in Gaston, SC right now. The people here are great and all really nice. I'll be here for at least 12 weeks while I’m being trained. My trainer is Elder Memmott. He's great. Things are going really well and we have some solid investigators at the moment. I'm excited about this work and enjoying it……. I'm biking a lot and walking on dirt roads and stuff. I'll be alright for now though. On Saturday we got to teach this couple……. who've been investigating for about five months. They've had some trouble making and keeping commitments for a long time …… Saturday though we got them to say a prayer asking for strength and the Spirit just filled the room. It was an amazing experience and my companion thanked me ………. I loved it. This work is awesome and having the Spirit with you while doing it is so important. I'm so grateful to my Heavenly Father for allowing me to serve him in this manner.
As far as everything else I'm doing well. A mission is a lot of work but I'm enjoying every bit of it.
Love, Elder Nair
