Hello my amazing family! I do not have a lot of time on this email so it will be short and sweet! This week I went to Pest (just across the river) to go on an exchange with Elder Murphy! He is really great and his parents are professors/researchers at BYU. We were able to have a great lesson with these people that Elder Leavitt found when he was serving in Pest and it went really well! We felt that we needed to talk about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, however, the spirit took it another way and we were able to talk about the spirit and the roles it can play in our lives. It was fit for their needs and at the end of the lesson the mom said that she wanted to be baptized in the spring.
One of the things that the self reliance program and President Szabadkai has really helped me learn is the importance of listening and being sincere with people! This gospel has played such a huge role in my life and I am really making it my goal with everyone I talk to be as sincere as possible.
On the way back from Pest, this lady was holding a big bag in one hand and pushing a stroller in the other hand (to go along with it she was pregnant). The spirit would not let me pass by her and so I offered to help. She refused, I was persistent, she accepted and we walked to her house, got her number and she agreed to let us meet! It was a great experience!
This week, we were able to visit with a member to show the Christmas message. We realize that her husband was not home and that we could not stay until he got home. She then had an idea. She got a plate of baked goods and had me carry this huge package that was for her next door neighbors. We walk a few doors down, and a mom, dad, and 2 little kids answer. The member says, “I have brought your package and a Christmas message, may we come in?” It was absolutely great and a good testimony builder of obedience and member missionary work!
Like I said we went to Győr this week and I was able to meet with Roli. He is doing really well! It was fun to be able to see him again!
I love you all so much and hope you have a wonderfully amazing week!
