The Love Marriage Church

This is our neighborhood 'love marriage' or 'a/c' church, as the locals call it here in India.  It is by far the nicest building around.  I have not once heard of it being called the LDS church or even the mormon church.  They call it love marriage because it is one of the only churches where the marriages aren't arranged.  That is so crazy to me.  The people in the ward so so nice to us.  Most of them are converts but they are hardcore about the church, it is way cool.  

This is a picture of the girls in my group/the insta-choir.  They asked us to sing at a baptism right after church so we just hit them up with a little "I Like to Look for Rainbows" on the spot and they loved it!  My eyes are closed but everyone else looks great! 

Don't even worry I found the Nordstroms of India almost within the first week.  This one street that is pretty close to our house has a few of these big "department" stores.  They don't have anything that I would really wear everyday but they do carry designer saris if anyone back home is interested.  They have all these guys that follow you around and show you all the different fabrics.  They have some really amazing fabric and it is cheap!  I got approximately 6 yards of fabric for like 4 dollars and it is way cool.  So if anyone wants to fabric for something let me know and I can send you some pictures, they have every pattern you could ever imagine and I am sure I could get it cheaper then that if I go to a market.

This is just upstairs in the store.  They had this really pretty chandelier so it was pretty legit.
