It was truly a really fabulous week! The best thing that happened this week was definitely one of our awesome investigators! When we were on exchanges a few weeks back, Elder Lowe and Elder Garrett were able to tract into a woman from Romania. She lives really close to the branch house and lives right now with her daughter and her two daughters, let us not forget there giant Akita dog. The grandmother is the definition of being prepared! She has been baptized into a couple of churches and has been searching for the truth for years but has not been able to find it. She said that the 1st time she was in church she was looking for a mistake in the way that we did things (like she was able to find in the other places she attended), however, she was not able to find any (it is almost like this is the true church or something like that :). We were able to bring up baptism with her this past week and we invited her to be baptized on the 3rd of March, she accepted. She drank coffee, however, ever since she heard that coffee was not allowed in the gospel, she says she fills sick whenever she drinks it, she does not drink it at all now, the spirit really works. Her daughter also wants to be baptized but we are going to give her a little bit more time. The Lord truly placed them in our path!
We were also able to go to Miskolc this past week. I was able to be with Elder Terry from my MTC group and we were able have a good exchange. We were able to find many potential investigators and were also able to find a new investigator over there in Miskolc. It was a bit snowy on the way over there and on the way back but the Lord was totally able to watch over us and it was all ok.
We were able to have many teaching appointments this past week and the investigators all seem to be progressing really well (the biggest problem right now is getting them to come to church as they all, or at least most, will say they will come, however, in church last Sunday we only had 2 investigators).
We were able to meet with many other investigators this past week where we discussed the Plan of Salvation and the truths and blessings that come from the Book of Mormon. We are teaching one family that is half American and half Hungarian (the mom is from America). We had to meet with one investigator in a restaurant as our member wasn’t able to attend as something came up.
The Lord is blessing us so much and we are working hard. Have a great week and I love you tons!!
