Sister Whittaker’s 22nd Week in Hungary

December 26, 2014


Happy holidays friends and family!

Every week just keeps getting better and better. The weather was beautiful and even though there is no snow, the Hungarians really know how to celebrate. The lights are up, Christmas music playing through the town and people are just jolly. There really is nothing better.

We celebrated Christmas right by reenacting the nativity scene. Sister Schnoor and I played the angels and luckily didn’t have to say any lines. After, we enjoyed some hot chocolate and Hungarian desserts that make your mouth water.


We had a bargain with our investigator, Ibolya this week that if she comes to our church, we will go to hers. Yesterday, we headed over to her church for some special Christmas lecture. It was an interesting experience and they were all so incredibly nice. As we walked in, they were playing The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and had all kinds of desserts for us. At the end we were able to talk to people about our purpose as missionaries and why we are here. People were asking all kinds of questions and were amazed how young people like us go out and teach about the Gospel.  How blessed I feel to be a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

We had great lessons, gave a baptismal date to our good friend Gabor, and received many numbers. The work is going strong and Hungarians are still hungry for the gospel.


Such a special time to talk about a special gift our loving Heavenly Father gave each and every one of us. His Son. I have loved passing our special “He is the Gift” cards out to everyone on the street. Make sure to pay it forward this week, show your love and everyday just try to be a little better.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas! Be safe over the holidays, enjoy it while it last and never forget the real meaning of Christmas.

Merry, Merry Christmas!!!

All my love, Whittaker Nővér
