Sister Whittaker’s 11th Week in Hungary

This week in Buda has been full of adventures! Last week we hopped on a boat ride and journeyed down the Danube. That took us a little farther then we planned. It turned out to be a 2-hour boat ride with no air circulation, and the fear of not knowing where we were. Turns out we made it on the other side of Buda and walked for hours completely lost. Luckily, we made it home safe and laughed along the way.

On Thursday I went on splits to Pest and worked with the sweetest sister! Sister Martineau hasn’t been out much longer than I, so we both don’t speak the best Hungarian. We had quite the time trying to speak and communicate with others and we got many confused looks. I can now testify that the spirit is so incredibly real and no matter what language you are speaking, the most important language is the language of the spirit because that language will change any persons heart.

We have this golden investigator who we both LOVE! This week we watched the Restoration film and at the end, Anikő said, “wow, I just got goose bumps, that was beautiful!” She loves the Book of Mormon and feels like this is what’s been missing in her life. She is so incredibly prepared.

Conference was so great but sadly it was all in Hungarian so I didn’t understand a whole lot. Although, as I was watching a thought came to my mind, what kind of missionary I want to be. What kind of person do I want to be when I get home? The mission is preparing each and every one of us for the rocky road ahead of us. The mission is not easy, as well as life. You can either let the mission change you and make you become a better person than who you were before, or come back exactly the same, going back to your old habits.

I know that God lives and that He loves us. He will never leave us in the storms of life.

I love you all and I hope you have a great week! God bless!

All my love, Whittaker Nővér
