After a warm welcome of the Mentors at IKA airport, we were anxiously waiting to begin the Mentor Development Program (MDP). Alhamdullillah we all had a good rest before starting the day in full swing.

We have five days left in this amazing trip. So far it has been one of the best trips I have ever been on.
Today was my birthday and it was one of the best birthdays I have ever had. Even though I was away from my family, I had an amazing birthday, thanks to the organizers, mentors and the participants for making it one of the best birthdays I have had!
Today we went to the Holy Haram of Imam Redha (AS) and I felt the immediate effect when entering the gates of the Haram. It was amazing to see thousands of Shia Muslims gathered around a very special personality who is Imam Ar-Redha (AS).
In the evening we went back to the Haram and started our reflection group. It was interesting to hear what everyone had to say about the experience overall and how they felt coming to the holy city of Mashhad. I have only got about 4 more days here in Mashhad and I am going to try and make the most of it.

With three days to go, we wanted to make the most of the trip to Nishapour. That was the destination of our two hour journey, and in order to spend the majority of the day in Nishapour, we had to wake up at 7AM, earlier than usual.
