May 18, 2015 – Week 34

Life is just cool. When you think about our loving Heavenly Father and His merciful plan for us, you just have to take a step back and say “Wow”! 

This has been a busy week, as usual full of funny moments, some discouragements, and miracles along the way. But I just want to share one cool story to display just how involved the Lord’s hand is in His work.  So on King’s Day in Maastricht, we had a big stand and gave out Book of Mormons in all different sorts of languages and met many people! One family who we are now teaching is incredible-the father is from Iran and the mother from Iraq. They are religious refugees. He is atheist and she was Muslim but converted to Christianity. Before the King’s Day the father had a dream in which two messengers gave him a Book of Mormon and told him he needed to go to church. He had never heard of the book but wrote down the title. He reads in Farsi  (ah spelling??) and she in Arabic. So he came by but we didn’t have a copy in his language. But he talked to an elder and took a card and asked for a copy of the book. Later she came by the stand, saw the title, and told her husband what it is in his language! They called the number on the card a couple days later and now are coming to church and reading in the Book of Mormon. So cool! The only problem is there is a huge lanugage barrier. But! We just had a military family move in and the father speaks Arabic fluently. Miracles! 

I wish I had more time to write other crazy mission experiences but maybe you all will just have to read my journal some day 🙂 Pictures to come next week! I’m so thankful for this gospel. Christ’s grace is able to help us every step of the way, through the good times and the bad. Take His hand and move courageously forward! I love you all and have a great week!
