the Baptisms were really cool! They took place inside of a... well it’s hard to
explain, but it was like a natural hot spring that we rented out. It was really
funny because both of the néník were up to their necks just standing in the
water so it was pretty easy to baptize them. The spirit was just so powerful
during it, there is one youth whose older sister and mother are members and
he’s around 13. He decided that he wants to get baptized on his birthday just
from being there. It was Sooo amazing! Then after we had a süti buli . . a
pastry party?? It was good and then at the end one of the ladies who was
baptized gave all the elders the whole cheek kissing thing which was
really foreign and awkward, but after my mission I will probably bring it
to our family woohooo!
I haven’t received my package yet cuz it got stuck in customs and it cost quite
a bit of money to get it out so just be aware to not put the value price
of things too high because the Hungarian customs is apparently very stingy.
this week was pretty good. One highlight was when we met with my favorite
Romanian family on Saturday, they’re so nice and friendly and there kids are
the funniest. The boy whos around 6 is pretty wild but super funny and always
kisses pictures of Christ. They’re just an amazing family and I love them so
much. We also met with this inactive member who is really cool, but rather
difficult to get her to understand the gospel and get her to attend church, so
we ended up just doing a chill lesson on music which worked really well because
she loves music and she really opened up more to us and were able to get to
know and understand her better. Other than that we didn’t have a super
effective week because most of our lessons dropped, but it was still good
because we found quite a bit of people who are interested.
Sunday was pretty interesting because an investigator we brought, got up
for fast and testimony meeting and kind of just went ham, talking about how he
and his old friends steal and told another story about an angel or something he
saw which wasn’t the best thing to share in front of a congregation of people .
. . and then the branch president was pretty mad at us . . it was kind of funny
though, but mostly not good.
the other Elders/Zone leaders needed help moving their furniture around because
their entire apartment was getting the walls repainted and there was a lot of
work that needed to be done on it so now they’ve moved in with us!!! Party with
the zone leaders minden nap, egész nap!
