I don’t have too much time to write today,
kinda stinks, considering the fact that a TON of stuff happened this last week
it was CRAZY!!! Also I totally forgot to wish BRENT a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
So anyways last week we hiked up Gellert hegy
which was super fun and a lot more of a hike that I originally anticipated, but
we got a ton of cool pics and it was super beautiful. Also this guy from
English class invited us to go on a boat ride with him on the Duna, and it was
super sick, the view from the river is spectacular and the fresh cool air was
exhilarating, it truly was fantastic!
We also had a super good program with M,
It was super good I brought Elder C. who served in Kispest when he was
a greenie one year ago, and he was the one who found her and taught her, and
she like loves him and the program was just amazing and the spirit was sooo
strong and we gave her a blessing to try and help her with overcoming smoking
and elder gave one of the greatest blessings I have ever heard, it was
truly amazing, and right afterwards she was just stunned, by how strong the
spirit was. She even told us that "during moments like these I just don’t
even know what to say" and we were just really trying to help her to get
that desire to be baptized and now she has it. SO hopefully we can get her to
church, because I know that that will be the biggest help with her smoking
In Other news my comp had to go get a
checkup at the doctor and now tomorrow he has to get his mole on his foot
removed; it’s not super serious, we just hope that he can walk because the next
day is the 20th which is a huge holiday here, AND IM IN BUDAPEST so there
should be fireworks. Also Laslo was in the hospital getting surgery but got out
yesterday so hope he heals fast.
Also we met with Mrs. A. again which was
one of the hardest programs ever because she would not stop talking and like
has literally no faith whatsoever, she even called the person who wrote the book
of Mormon an idiot . . . so yea. But we had an okay program just talking about
faith, because she wants to believe, just cant. But hopefully Alma 32 will help
her with that problem.
We had a super good Zone training and
afterwards almost the entire zone went to Gringos Amigos (similar to cafe rio)
for lunch and it was super good. . But the next day apparently 90 percent of
those who ate there got explosive diarrhea and it didn’t help that I ate the
hottest sauce you could get, because it was like hot lava. That day was very
difficult for me and my companion.
But we also found and met this super awesome
African guy who has lived in Hungary for 20 years, he is flippin hilarious; his
name is MR. D and he is awesome. He works as the head of some equality organization
and actually owns a soccer team that consists mostly of refugees, super sick.
He is really religious and said he was baptized as a Mormon but we really don’t
know yet. Either way we have just been teaching him the normal lessons and he
also has a love for Joseph Smith and especially for Alma. He wanted us to tell
him that the book of Alma was the most important. LOLs he also said he would
pop by visit us in America and just be like "wassup man!!" I’m so
stoked for that moment.
Other than that all is well. Can’t wait to
see my Bro Andy this Sunday . . WOOOOT!!
