First things first we had FHE with our investigators! A family in the ward has fellow shipped them and they are BFF's now, its great.
We found a new investigator this week and when we walked into his house the first thing he says is, "what would you like to drink? I have every kind of alcohol!" So ya that was a rough start... he then offered us cocaine.... ha not actual cocaine but he gave us some Persian treat called Gaz, he loves it so much that he calls it cocaine.. its a work in progress...
He is nuts. He apparently has been looking for the truth about religion and why we aren't supposed to drink alcohol or tea or coffee. He told us he has been looking for years.
He said that we were the last people he was going to bring into his home to find the answers to his questions, he has a lot more than Word of Wisdom questions. So we taught him about the word of wisdom and he said something along the lines of how those drinks aren't bad for everyone so not everyone should have to follow those rules. Then we showed him a couple scriptures going over how he could really know if what we are saying is true and he read them and told us that he loved the Book Of Mormon and that the scriptures were amazing. One of the scriptures we read was about him asking God if what we taught was true and that if he really wanted to know then he would get an answer and the scripture says "burning in the bosom" and he looks up at us and says "this is amazing. if I ask God, then he will burn me and give me an answer. I LOVE BEING BURNED!" We then went into the different ways he could feel an answer come and he just loved that he would feel the "burn".
We had transfer calls last night, Elder Casdorph and I are both staying! and Elder C is the new district leader! ya nothing really changes for Persian speaking missionaries here.
Thats about all the news I have for you guys!
love you all!
