Dear Family,

Buda Zone Conference
Well this week was pretty awesome!!! It was a bit hard because we weren’t able to meet with a lot of people, but we still had quite a bit of success. Probably the Biggest thing that happened was with Rose, because she had a pretty huge problem, but we fasted and IT Worked!!! The problem went away or at least 90 percent of it did!! We were super stoked; I’m so thankful that we had this amazing opportunity to experience this small Miracle! And it was a huge testimony to me that the fast does work, that God will bless us when we show him how willing we are, and for this I give thanks to Heavenly Father.

We also had some pretty good programs with her, sadly we had to move her bap date considering she is still having a WoW problem, but we will work on that. As far as finding goes, I am a personal fan of Tracting, I feel like it is the most successful here, but tabling isn’t too bad especially on Saturday when we go downtown. Also when we flyer trying to get more people to English Class, because English Class is a super good tool for finding people. Actually that’s how we found this one girl in Sopron who actually got baptized a couple weeks ago. I can’t remember what I nicknamed her, but she was the super cool 17 year old girl and was super golden. She was pretty much already keeping all the commandments.

As far as finding goes we found one guy who is super chill and his name is Alex but his nickname is Sajt (cheese) super funny. We met with him the other day and he is just so chill, I’m pretty sure he is a hardcore stoner, but he was super cool and we just talked about God and Prayer so we’ll see how the next meeting with him goes in 2 weeks from now.

Oh yea and for Fourth of July we had a HOT DOG PAR TEA!!!! Super good and delicious and pretty funny; really didn’t do all that much for it, but all well.

We also met with a recent convert and she just asked us a ton of questions about our missions, like why we went. What we learned. It really made me do a lot of thinking about how much I really have changed during this entire time in Hungary and even in the MTC… it was really cool to realize.

Other than that just normal programs, normal tracting and tabling, talking to lots of drunk guys. It’s always, fun. Reminds me there’s this one drunk hobo who is super mean… just an angry elf. And I realized that even though he is a jerk to us and is a bit crazy, he’s still a child of God and God still loves him. He’s probably had some rough times, and the bible teaches us to "Love thine enemies and bless them who curse you" (and this guy cursed at us quite a bit) and once I started to see him for who he really is, I started to like him more and more. Just kinda cool personal experience.

Also favorite aspect of missionary work would have to be helping people and really trying to help people better their lives through the gospel. The big city is pretty nice because there’s a lot to do on P-day but then again we have to take the metro everywhere, and I kinda like the smaller branches because you get to know everybody really well, but its super funny watching everybody here especially all the little kids.

Anywho stay cool everybody
