Well, I didn't see this coming....

So, it was a really good and long week this last week.  As you all know, transfer calls were this morning and like I do with just about every other thing in my life I was stressing out about them, haha.  I did not know what to expect and really anything could have happened.  We really thought that Elder Olsen was going to be leaving and that I would be staying, however,  I had no clue who I was going to be getting and had the thought that I could possibly be training ( I really wanted to train but knew it was in the Lord's hands at what I would be doing).  A few nights ago, I had a really strange dream that I would be returning to Győr and that I would not be training but that I would be doing something else.  I did not really think anything of it and told Elder Olsen about it and we laughed a little bit.  I really had no clue what was going to happen but was like 95 % sure that I would be staying.  Last night I was super excited and did not sleep much.  If you are going to be going into a leadership position (training, zone leader, assistant, etc.) you get a call from president early in the morning.  If it is just a regular transfer call, it is from the assistants at about 8:30-9:30.  So needless to say this morning I was pretty anxious.  I worked out hard this morning, showered and waited anxiously for the call.  I went to go throw in my clothes in the washer and I hear Elder Olsen yell, "it is President!"  I was flipping out and thought for sure that I would be training.  Elder Olsen talks to him first and then gives the phone over to me.  I ask him how he is doing, etc. and then he says something about Győr.  I thought for sure I misunderstood him and thought Győr was a Hungarian word that I did not know.  He then switched over to English and told me that I would be going back to Győr and would be serving with Elder Ure there as ZONE LEADER!!!  I was literally speechless.  I called Elder Ure right away and totally flipped out!  I just walked around for like 10 minutes just thinking it over.  I am so excited and am very humbled at the call; it makes me want to work even harder.  I am sad to be leaving Pécs but know that this is what I need to be doing and that people in Győr are ready for the Gospel.  I am still in a bit of shock, however, haha.  Anyway, I will do a quick recap on the highlights of the week.  I had liver and pasta at a member's home for my birthday (it was super good).  We only were able to get 3 member present lessons this week but we got let in like 4 or 5 times which was cool.  The primary program was on my birthday and the kids did a really good job.  I will keep working hard and serving as hard as I possibly can!  I love you all so much and hope that you all have a great week!
