Sister Whittaker’s 15th Week in Hungary

November 3, 2014

Meggie unfortunately didn’t have time to send pictures or an official letter this week, though she did share a few fun experiences.  Enjoy!

You’ll never guess what I ate last Monday! All of the elders wanted to eat at a restaurant called, Nymos.  Well, it is a fish place. At first I was like, “oh man…..” but I didn’t want to be the silly girl that is the only one who disagrees, so I went. We ordered a whole thing of fish and chips and ate the WHOLE thing! I liked it too! I thought you should just tell everyone in the family that :) I know you would all be very proud of me!

Also, I ate bunny this week! We have an awesome member named Barnabas.  We all get along well and we got talking about holidays and what we do on Easter, and how the Easter Bunny will come and bring us candy each year. Well, Barnabas just yells out, “I eat them!” We were so taken a back! This week, he surprised us with a bunny leg! It tasted like chicken but I just couldn’t do it. While I was eating all I could smell was Petsmart.

This morning I woke up 30 minutes earlier to make Sister Jensen breakfast. It’s called “Amish oatmeal” and it’s so delicious!! It’s perfect for those cold mornings, and we’re having many of those here in Buda! Last week, I bought a coat. I tried to find the cheapest, but the warmest.  When I was trying on winter coats, Elder Goddridge & Waldvogle were with us, and provided us some “man” advice on which coat was best.  The warm coat I went with has a buckle in the front, and Elder Waldovgel keeps making jokes about how I must be on a roller coaster, saying “well Sister Whittaker is buckled in for the ride!” I’ll be the one laughing when he’s freezing! :)

Thank you mom for the talks you sent me! I didn’t want to put them down! I loved President Eyring’s talk of waiting on the Lord.  I read Isaiah’s chapters this week, and I found them hard to understand.  I’m going to refer back to them soon.  I can’t tell you how much I love it here.  Buda is absolutely incredible, and I can’t wait to see it transformed for the holiday season.  I am also falling in love with the Hungarian language, and find it such a beautiful way of speaking.  Hopefully soon I’ll be fluent enough to sound like the natives!

Thank you for all your love and support, I feel so blessed to be here serving these people, and grateful for the opportunity to share with them the Gospel I love so dearly. Happy November!
