Well this week
was pretty intense; we actually had some troubles going from program to program
because we had quite a few programs that were super far apart from each other
which was very interesting. One day in particular we went to a program on
the outskirt of Budapest then had to book it back to the downtown area for
another program with this very interesting new inv. named Julia; We held the
program at KFC… super funny, but it went pretty good and we gave her a
so the big news… I’m staying! Woot! And my new comp is going to be Elder Meek,
whom I don’t know, so I guess we will just wait and see. Elder Redford is going
to Kecskemét, and Elder Swenson is also leaving sadly, we for sure had a lot of
fun together, especially on p-days.
On Tuesday of
last week we had a member of the 70 visit, Elder Leimer. And our investigator
Laslo came to it and it was super good, I learned a ton of things and the
spirit was just so strong there, it was a super good experience.
We also brought
a member with us to go tracting which was not very successful sadly, but it was
still pretty fun and a good experience, he talked a lot about how it is so much
more effective if the members find people, a lot more effective than just
tracting, than he told us that we should just street people, and while we
street only street good looking women. lol. But members are a super important
tool, I love bringing them to programs because programs are just always better with
a member there; and most importantly they can become friends with the
Investigators which really gets them involved in the ward and makes it so much
easier for investigators to go to church; and the members can help and support
them in all things. I believe that is the most important thing, just being a
friend and being nice. So simple and yet so effective.
We also looked
up this RCLA Margit, because the ward hasn’t seen her for a while, and when we
did she let us in and was super nice and cool; she actually has a daughter that
lives in Utah and married an American and she just talked about her for days! We
just shared a little spiritual thought that went super well.
Redford was leaving, we had this almost going away dinner with this super cool
guy from English class who took us to TGI Fridays, we totally forgot to take
pictures… sorry, but it was fun.
These were most
of the highlights I believe. Other than that, just a pretty normal, average
is doing fantastic and has a wonderfully amazing week full of indescribable
