|The 'Easter Bunny'|
Story Time!!! it was a dark Tuesday night and we just finished our day and it was now dinner time, and somebody knocks on the door. When we opened the door, it was the branch president. He went on to tell us about a less active member who he just met with and he wanted to talk to us. So we go down and start talking with this guy and he is super cool! He has gone on splits with the missionaries a ton in the past and he just always remembered it being so great. He also loves basketball and ping pong, and he has these two super cute little girls. Were super excited to be meeting with this guy, he is legit.
Then on Palincsinta péntek a ton of people came that we invited and it was super awesome! There were 2 girls from English class, our Investigator B. and his kid and wife, Liz, and S. with his 2 girls. It was poppin! There were quite a bit of people there and the funniest thing was that all 4 of the little kids got along Super Well. It was super funny, I looked into the primary room and they’re all just beating up K. (the branch prez 14 year old son) it was the funniest thing I’ve seen for a while, until Sunday came, but that story is for a bit later.
We also went on splits with the APs which went super well. Flake and I went with Elder Miller, who was actually one of my first zone leaders!! It was super funny to see him again and go on splits with him, it was pretty fun. He’s also super good at tracting… I guess when you’re as far as him in your mission; you get pretty good at getting let in and being a missionary.

Now, Sunday was AMAZING! It was district conference so Elder Olsson (Swedish member of the 70) came and he was a pretty amazing man. The conference was in Szombathely, so we filled up a small bus full of investigators and members and headed off to conference!! It was super cool because I got to see a lot of people I knew in szombathely and was able to see our good friend Zsolt receive the Melchizedek Priesthood which was way awesome! The road trip was a super good bonding experience for many members and investigators. So, the Craziest thing happened. During conference a bird just flew into the building from an open window and flew up to the top for like half a minute, and the speaker is still going, but a lot of people’s attention was on the bird. Then it starts to fly around and then starts diving down coming straight towards Elder Flakes head and I was seating right next to him. So it went right over mine and then our investigator sitting next to flake put her hand out and the bird just landed right onto it!!! Then she put her hand over it and caught it!! And she was like "Szentlélek" or in English "The Holy Spirit" and we were just bursting up laughing, it was the most amazing, shocking, most random thing I’ve ever seen. Super cool, Lin really had a super good trip, and learned a lot from conference and even became the bird whisperer.
Well, that’s about all for this week. Stay tuned for more next Monday whooot!
