29 June 2015

Monday: nothing interesting. mostly emailed and got lunch.
Tuesday: Met with our recent convert Roli. We talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was really great.
Then we went tracting. It was actually a really cold and windy and nobody was letting us into the buildings. We ended up ringing about fifty doorbells until someone let us in. The number that let us into the building was number six but once we got in and tried to find the door with the six on it we couldn't find it so we ended up knocking on number three who ended up being this super nice young teacher. Her name is Nóra and she was super nice. We ended up talking about the Book of Mormon. It was a little awkward at first but I just looked her in the eyes and explained why these three crazy american girls were coming to her apartment and trying to give her a book. It is because we know that it is the word of God and that He has a plan for us here on earth and that the fullness of His gospel and plan for us is in this book and that we have read it and that we have felt that it is true in our hearts. She seemed to be a bit more comfortable after that and she accepted the book and said we could come back this week so we are going back on tuesday. It should be good.
Wednesday: Asian Whitaker was sick all morning so we did some area book and called some people. It was good. Later we met with Roli quickly so whitaker could say goodbye before she went to Debrecen. After that we met with Zsuzsa. She is the same as ever. We had Viki come with us and she was so wonderful. We basically just try to make her feel loved and make sure she knows we are there for her.
Thursday: We went up to Budapest for the mini transfer. Goodbye dear Asian Whitaker! It was a really long day of sitting on a train. We went three hours to Budapest, got lunch and then headed back for another three hours. But on the ride back we talked to this man who said he was interested in meeting and gave us his card. Super cool. He was kind of interesting. I guess he met with the missionaries about ten years ago in Pest but for some reason they stopped. He kind of wanted to debate about where we go after we die because he believes in reincarnation so we'll see where it goes but it was cool.

Friday: We went to a graduation for one of the elders investigators. It was pretty cool. The hungarian national anthem is beautiful, look it up.

 We met with Gábor. He is solid like always. 
our investigator gábor (the mediball lover) who had to crouch down to be closer to our hight..
We met with L__ Laci, the older guy that had all the J-dub pamphlets. Gábor asked if he could come along too so we brought him along. Laci is crazy. He is super nice, and super christian but crazy. Its hard to keep him on topic. But he came to church yesterday so that is good. He used to have a bap date. We'll see if he is ready for baptism again as we keep meeting with him.

We also met with a nice lady named Timi and her mom. They used to meet with the missionaries a couple of years ago I guess but her mom loves the book of mormon. When we got there and started talking her mother came in and asked if she could have a book of mormon to give to her friend so we said of course and gave it to her. They were super nice and had a lot of questions about the purpose of life and what happens after we die so next lesson we are going to teach the plan of salvation. The mother was super sweet and asked if we could take photos at the end and she said that she just saw a light in our eyes. It was super spiritual and cool.

Saturday: We had a program with the branch and a couple of other branches in the area, kecskemét and békéscsaba. There were about a hundred members there, the most I have seen at one time in Hungary. It was super awesome. We did this big photo scavenger hunt all over szeged in teams. It was fun to talk to and get to know the members in our branch and the other branches. Then we had lunch at the indian place near the branch house and then we all got back together at the branch house. Somebody came in and taught some indian dancing. It was super funny seeing the old men in our branch trying to do it. Then there were some water balloon games and I got soaked. Then our investigator Gábor's Mediball team came and performed. (if you don't know what mediball is look it up. Super great.) It was just a great day.

Sunday: We had church which was great and then at four we had a surprise birthday party for one of the young men in the branch, Peti, who just turned 18. He cut us the hugest pieces of cake. I'm still full from it. haha
