Believe In Miracles!!!

So this past week was super incredible!  I sent the voice recording so that will have most of the big things in it so I will write about those and some of the other cool things!  SO...

One of our investigators from a part member family told us this week that she is going to be baptized.  She is really excited and we are really excited for her!  We asked her if we could do it on the 28th of October, however, her father (the one who is going to baptizer her) is working every single weekend this month and would not be able to come.  So we set it for early November (the 11th) and it sounds like it is really going to happen.  They came to the Sisters' investigators baptism and they loved it (when the man being baptized was baptized he stood up in the font and put his hands up in the air like Rocky and goes "SUCCESS" in Hungarian, it was awesome).  They also came to church and loved it.  They made us American style pancakes and they were super tasty!  

The other investigators on our street are also doing super amazing!  We were able to meet with them a couple of times and we were able to talk about the Book of Mormon and the importance of gaining a testimony of it.   She says that when she meets with us she feels this absolute, incredible feeling!  She has started to read and likes it.  She started to get emotional as we were discussing baptism and said she would pray about it. 

We were able to go to Szeged this past week on an amazing exchange!  I was able to work with Elder Graham from Colorado who is such a hard worker.  It went really well and I really like to go on exchanges with Elder Graham.  

We were able to have a really great Broadcast last night from the European Presidency and from Elder Ballard.  Elder Ballard talked about how we need to believe in miracles and expect them to happen because the Lord needs them to happen.  Elder Ballard shared a story about how one time he was in Ethiopia and it was a drought and he commanded the sky to rain and it started to downpour!  He said it rained every day that week.  He talked about how the best way to show our love to the Lord is by inviting those around us to hear about the Gospel.   He said we need to find joy living this gospel and that we should be going to church with smile on our faces.  He said the miracles start on our knees as we plead with our Father in Heaven to know His will and asking Him for the help to fulfill our duty.  It was a really amazing talk! I do love this work and while I am imperfect I sure am trying so so so hard!  The Lord honors those that honor him and one of the biggest things that I have come to know on my mission is that the miracle comes and the answers to questions come after we have gotten to work and at the times we do not expect it.  I love you all so much and hope you have an amazing week!
