As the title says, this last week I was able to start my 5th transfer in the wonderful city of Budapest. I am serving with Elder Lowe from Washington the state. He is such a hard worker, loves football and basketball, is the best Hungarian speaker in the mission, and is going to be going to BYU studying finance (let's just say we get along pretty well, haha). We are really excited to be able to work together this transfer and we are excited for the amazing work that lies ahead.
On Monday, we were able to cook with Sister Szabadkai. She taught us how to make fruit soup, one of things that they eat a lot here and that I am super excited to make for you all when I go home.
This week, Elder Hughes went home, however, the day before he went home, a new missionary arrived from Australia. His name is Elder McCan and he is a wonderful missionary. On Tuesday we were able to be with him and it was really fun working with someone fresh out of the MTC. He is a wonderful missionary and is going to be doing absolutely amazing things for the people in this country!
The next day was the transfer and we I was able to start serving with Elder Lowe. We were able to give a training to Elder McCan and his trainer Elder Howard and following that were able to do a lot of planning for the transfer. On Tuesday and Wednesday we were able to have an amazing dinner with the Szabadkais and were able to have paprikás csirke, one of my favorite Hungarian dishes (I am going to learn from sister Szabadkai how to make it on one of these preparation days).
On Thursday and Friday we were also able to do a lot of planning and we were able to set some really great goals. We were able to tract into two new investigators on Friday, tracted into another on Saturday, and on Sunday were able to get a referral from the sisters in Pest and met with a really prepared man named David. It has been a week full of miracles and I am so excited to keep on taking part in them this transfer!
I love you so much and hope you all have a great week!
