It was a great week this week and time just doesn’t seem to slow down. We visited five less actives this week and it was a success. On Sunday, two of the families came back to church that haven’t been for months. Walking in and seeing their happy faces…there is no greater feeling. I was called to speak in church this Sunday and all those stressful feelings went away as I began to speak and bear my testimony. I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father. The Relief Society president was sick and called us to teach Relief Society. Even though there were a few language barriers, laughs and playing the game charades, all in all it worked out and yet again we felt the spirit helping us speak what they all needed to hear.
We are teaching the coolest, nicest guy named András. We met him out streeting and told him about our free English class. He was quite interested, showed up to English and now we get the privilege to personally meet with him. He is so intelligent and loves to talk physics…let me tell you, that is my worst subject He believes a lot of what we believe and asks every time to give him homework to read from the Book of Mormon. He is so prepared and such a wonderful man.
We had quite the experience today while out walking with the elders. A younger girl came and stopped us, spoke perfect English and then mentioned she was from Washington DC and is here being a missionary for the Lutheran church. She has been trying to find the Mormon missionaries. We invited her to a program, and at the end she said the prayer. God really does put people into your path. We exchanged information and I’m sure we will see her more often.
This week we weren’t able to find Gabi. As we were leaving the branch house she walked in the door and was wanting to meet. We had a great lesson, and at the end, asked her to be baptized. She accepted for April 18th. We told her that it won’t be easy but we will be with her every step of the way. It was a miracle.
I have never felt happier than I have been here in Hungary, teaching all these incredible people who are so prepared. Seeing them at church, or seeing them slowly progress is a happiness I can’t explain. I love this gospel and I know without a doubt that God loves each and every one of us. Thank you again for all that you do. I feel each and every one of your prayers.
All my love, Whittaker Nővér
