Dear Family,
 Yea it’s kinda weird being back In Budapest, but its super cool. Its seriously my favorite city úgy hogy . . . But luckily we did have the opportunity to watch conference and this time we could watch it in English; which was awesome, because Hollands talks just aren’t the same in Hungarian. We got to watch all of the conferences except for the Sunday afternoon… but we were just happy that we got to hear Uchtdorf and Holland and the Prophet. It was way good and helped me a ton. There were so many good talks and the priesthood session was especially good! But it was super funny that the first session we watched was just all about families and getting married, almost made me kinda trunky.
So my new companion is Elder Murdock from somewhere in northern Utah, he is super cool, pretty athletic too so I’m super excited to have some sport naps, with him. The work here is super good!! We already have like 16 or so programs planned for this week. But super funny stories already, My first day here we just did some area book work which was good because we found a couple people. Most of them can’t meet for a while because of Easter, but we did manage to set up with one guy name C. who speaks English. Super weird because most of our programs are in English here, kinda mad because I can now speak Hungarian fairly well and now it’s like Useless!! lols

C. was a very interesting man who is very talkative and is very obsessed with reincarnation; he believes its evil but is scared that it might be true. We tried helping him out but he keeps on focusing on the negative and repeats himself a TON. Told us like 10 times that he won’t change religions, but we will see. Hopefully we can help him. We had another program after his so we left him kinda fast only to later hear him in the hall arguing with a member. So we ran and tried to get him out but he had to go to the bathroom, so we went back to our program. . . long story but pretty much took him about an hour to leave after our program because he just kept loitering around. . .super funny.
Also we went tracting one day, just randomly and some lady told us we were already there earlier. . . so we just kinda shrugged it off. Then later we were let in from these 2 girls who also spoke English. They also told us we were there earlier and we just totally thought it was like Jehovah’s Witnesses or somebody. Then we continue on and run into a néni who was like hey I already got a card from you guys; she showed it to us and it was for sure a Mormon card, so we call the other elders and they were tracting the same exact building literally 2 hours before us . . . what were the chances!!
 Not too much else happened other than conference and meeting some new super cool investigators. We also teach a lot of English classes here which is pretty cool, but pretty new to me, cuz we only did it once a week. But its super fun. Other than that like nobody can meet because of Easter and they are all going home to some random falu. Anyway hope that you guys are doing awesome, make sure to reread your general conference talks and notes!! And have a very merry kellemes and happy Easter!!!
sok szeretettel
Waldvogel Elder
