Pretty slow week here in Toronto..... All of our investigators have been partying for their Persian New Year aka Noruz (نوروز). so we have been doing our best to get things done and to find new people to teach.
A couple days ago Elder Milad and I had a goal to find 2 new investigators but we didn't have a lot of time in the day to go and out and do that. We felt like that was the goal we should set so we did it and just prayed that we would be able to get our goal. We went to Scarborough to try and see an investigator but we weren't able to get in contact with him.... he has no phone and is rarely home but has read most of the Book of Mormon if not the whole thing by now and loves it, so we try to see him multiple times a week. After that fell through we didnt have much time until we had to leave so for the extra 15 minutes we had we decided to go contact on a nearby highly Afghani street.
The first guy we talked to spoke little English but we were able to communicate a little by saying Isa Masih (Jesus Christ) and translating lds.org into Arabic on his phone. He liked it and decided to set up an appointment on Tuesday! The second guy we talked to was walking down the street when we stopped him, he asked which church we were from and we said "the Church of Jesus Chr...." and he quickly responded with "oh your Mormons?" He then asked us about the other book we believe in and asked how we can do that when in Revelations there shall be no books after that one. So we will have a good time talking to him on Tuesday at our appointment!
Its amazing what the lord will do for you when you put in all your effort to push his work along.
Time flies out here! Already 8 months in and it feels like yesterday that I was getting off the plane.
love you all!
