Well, this week was CRAZY!! Just soooo much happened!
I’ll try to fit it all in as little space as possible.
First off my comp had to get surgery!! He was
just getting a mole removed on his foot, but it still kinda stunk, because it
hurt to walk for some time. So it made it a lot harder to get out and work. One
day he actually used a cane the entire day, sooo funny.
We also went on a super cool hike with one of
the other elders investigators who we also meet with
sometimes, and we went up
to this super cool tower on top of hill that overlooks all of
Budapest. It kind
of looks like a sandcastle, LOL; But it was super fun.
We had the opportunity to celebrate a Magyar
ünnep!! Which was super fun! It is the independence day for Hungary and we just
hung out with the other elders and a member for most of the day, walking
around, went to a museum, checked out some little attractions and then at the
end of the night . . FIREWORKS!!!! Super cool I took some pics and videos, it
was super pretty with the fireworks bursting over the duna or danube with Buda
Castle in the background all lit up.
Later in the week my comp and I both caught a
cold or maybe it’s just allergies . . I don’t know, all I know is that our
noses were super clogged and it wasn’t too fun. Then to make it even better we
were dogged twice and then Mrs. A. dropped us :( it was super sad, because
she just totally gave up hope and gave us back the book of Mormon . . I felt
horrible just because I felt so useless. . .
But on the bright side a less active member
that we started to meet with, finally came to church!! wooot! Success! It was
super cool to see her there after all the bad stuff that happened. And Lazlo is
also doing good and actually came to church even though he was still feeling
super gross from the hospital. Also, this really old guy came to church last
week randomly and he wanted to be baptized. Now we are meeting with him and our
first program went super good!! He is super prepared, already believes
everything and wants to be baptized!!!
So lesson is that we gotta dig through a lot
of mud and dirt before we finally find the diamonds and reap our reward!
But by far the best part of the week was
getting to see ANDY again!!!! Also getting to meet his family, they’re super
cool! We just kinda hung out most of the afternoon on Sunday and I got to show
them around Budapest; it was seriously so awesome to be able to see him again,
we had so much fun. We really didn’t do much because it was Sunday and we were
also fasting, but it was still by far the highlight of my week. We also took
some pics of course!! So I will send you those. I do gotta admit that Andy has
some luscious hair nowadays.
Also transfers were today, but I’m
staying, so nothing new except Elder L. is dying (going home) so that’s kinda sad. Anyway, hope you all have an awesome week!
