One month ago on Christmas Day, Mo and Christine and granddaughter, brought an amazing non member Iranian man to church for the first time. Abbas enjoyed church and brought his family the very next week. We began teaching them immediately.
Abbas and Sara accepted the gospel with all their hearts. They could not get enough of the truths we taught them. They were and are truly golden.
From the moment we met Sara and Abbas, we could feel their hearts were prepared by the Lord, and they were pure, sincere and elect, ready to receive the Gospel.Sisters Roberts and Virkamaki taught and helped us learn to teach the lessons to these wonderful people! We will get to teach them the New Member discussions on our own!
What a blessed day this has been! Words can't describe the feelings we have,
to see this amazing man,Abbas,
and his sweet wife, Sara, enter the waters of baptism. Tomorrow Elder Christensen will confirm them members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!
We can only imagine the potential and influence they will have for good in the Church and Kingdom of God.

Abbas is a great father. He tries to feed Korosh here, and is always so much help to Sara with the children.
Grandpa is always a big hit with the kids, especially Kimmia.
Korosh isn't that interested.
You can easily see that he loves me!
Of course, we always have to have food at a baptism-- to go with the Spirit.
WE LOVE THIS MISSION!!
