Week 41: Rains Came Down

so its been a pretty wet week.
rained like 99% of the time.
its been great.

Well here's the story about how my area got turned upside down.

On March 26th a famine of investigators came over Farsi South. Day in and day out we tracted, street contacted, asked for referrals, did service, everything we could think of to bring investigators, but nothing came of it. 40 days came and went with no change of effort or success. Then the miraculous day came when I was on exchange with my zone leader, Elder Carroll.
At the beginning he prayed that all Canadians would be put in the path of the English elders and that we would only see Mandarin and Persian people, and that is exactly what happened! We contacted for hours and talked to 2 Canadians but the rest for the time Elder Carroll stunned those around us with his Mandarin and I did my best with my Farsi. The day came and went with a lot of potential investigators but no new. The last door we knocked on was stunned that a white guy spoke Persian, accepted a Book of Mormon and wants us to come back on Tuesday.
Day 41: 1 new investigator. Thus ending the famine. And since then we have found 5 more investigators, in the span of 4 days. 1 of which was about an hour ago when we stared emailing. :)

We have seen so many miracles come in the last 4 days. It's been wonderful, we are truly blessed.

The rest of the week has just been a lot of contacting and tracting. so not much to report there.

Love you all, and I hope you have a good week!
