Szia friends and family!
I made it safely here in Buda and I am loving this beautiful city. There are thousands of people, many things to do and much to see. My newest companion, Jensen Nővér originates from Salt Lake City and she leaves home in January. She is a powerful missionary, speaks exceptionally well Hungarian and someone I admire and look up to.
Every morning we wake up and take a nice run around the park in the center of the city. It is starting to get incredibly cold and the leaves are starting to change colors. We have a wonderful apartment and each morning we are serenaded by an opera singer just above us.
We had great lessons this week with new investigators and progressing as well. Just last week, my companion streeted a women named Anikő. We met with her this week and she is darling. She has the cutest laugh and sweetest countenance. We taught her about the Book of Mormon and we gradually got into the restoration. As my companion said the first vision, the was such a peace in the room that I have never felt before. It was quiet and calm and every word that came out of her mouth was powerful. We set up to meet with Anikő again and she said she would read the Book of Mormon.
Church in Buda is absolutely amazing. There are hundereds of strong, active members and many families. It just shows that the church is growing everyday. This gospel is absolutely incredible and what a blessing it is to be apart of the work. There are days when it is hard and you feel like you cant go any longer, but God will always be there, and he wants you to be successful. He sees how much you can handle and then he will step in to do the rest. Trust in him and all will be well.
I want to thank you for all the love and support you have shown me. It means the world to me. Hungary is still hungry for the gospel! I love you all and I hope you all have a fantastic week!
All my love, Whittaker Nővér
