ahhh so many miracles this week!

Mum its been so cool. We started off the week with no new contacts at all up to Wednesday. Then met so many amazing people. We started teaching a family! This family is our miracle. They are from Iran, there are 3 kids and the parents. They decided that they wanted to be Christian (which is sooooo dangerous) and had to leave their country to come to Australia to convert. They moved their whole family over to a place where they know nobody and hardly know Christianity any way. What an act of faith! ! They started in Perth. The mum had severe depression and had to be in the hospital for ages. While she was there one of the assistants that helped her was mormon and gave her a Persian Book of Mormon to read, told her it would help. She read the whole thing! She loved it so much, so much that she lent it to another sick person to read but before she got it bcd she was released from the hospital and moved to Melbourne. She got here and did not know where to get another Book of Mormon in Persian. She would ask the priests and none knew much about it so she has been searching.

The other day we were at the shopping center talking to people and Sister Larsen GQ'd a boy named D that was intrigued by the BofM (this woman's son it turns out) and we brought him one the next day. D's English is perfect! His mums is not at all so she sat in and he translated. When we talked about the BofM her eyes lit up and she told us (through her sons translation) that she had seen and read this book before and that she had been looking for it!! She didn't tell her family about it so her son had no idea. We pulled out the Persian one and she nearly cried. They are all amazing and want to be baptised. Pray for them! The language barrier with parents is hard but they all came to church!!! Ah they are amazing.

And Mohsen is still doing so well. He is planning on being baptised on the 30th of May!! Pray for him as well. He needs an answer! So many miracles. I love being a missionary.
