Dear Family,Well everything is going pretty well down in the Kispest. Actually where we go tabling is right next to the Duna (Danube) and we run into quite a few foreigners, I tried speaking German again but failed, also met some more Americans... it’s pretty fun and there are a ton of people here in Budapest who speak super well English, so hopefully we will be able to get some of them to our profi class.
We also found one of the coooolest people evers!!! He is this super awesome kid, let’s call him "Benjamin". It was seriously a miracle that we found him, it was super awesome. We first go and do some look ups and knock on this door, just say were doing a survey and he just lets us right in. So we start talking to him and it turns out he is an atheist, but his entire family is religious. Then his wife came in and started just asking a ton of questions of who we are, why we are here, etc... and then she left saying, oh I should go grab Benjamin, then leaves and we were like okay, now we can get back to religion and start talking again, then this 17 year old comes in speaking super well English and we just start talking with him. Then we asked the original guy who we talked with, if he would like to meet and he was like, no and left shortly after, but Benjamin and his girlfriend (who later came out at some point) stayed and he just started to ask us about our message that we had, so I started talking about the Book of Mormon and where it came from and he was like "yea that makes sense I never even thought about that" regarding it speaking about the people in the Americas and we just had an awesome program and set up with him for this upcoming Sunday, I’m super excited! And it turns out that he doesn’t even live there, his girlfriend does. It was a MIRACLE; I was over brimmed with joy and happiness.
We also met with this super rendes less active family, and they were just like a normal family, super funny and just joking around a ton. They showed us pics of when they were in America, it was super awesome. I honestly just want them to come to church for my own selfish reason to hang out with them... teehee
We also met this older Néni who paints pictures of Jesus and she is super nice, but talks… so much... SO MUCH. I barely got in a testimony of the Book of Mormon! But she is super nice and wanted us to meet her granddaughter who was also super cool and interested in English, so hopefully she will come to English class!!
Last Pday we went to the Nagy Piac, where a ton of people just sell stuff to foreigners, it was super weird to hear so much English again. I didn’t buy anything but I was pretty tempted by another cool lookin Russian hat... They are my main weakness. Yea also we made some pretty awesome food this week once again, we even made "bull pasta" I highly advice against it, then later we ate "bread bowl pasta" which right after I then entered into a "food coma" good thing we ate it at night.
Any who everything is pretty good, life is poppin! We will probably go to some more touristy areas either today or next week and I will for sure take more pictures… Hopefully
Hope yall are doing awesome, Peace out!
