Hello Friends and Family,
We got our transfer calls this morning and I am staying in Nyiregyháza and my new companion will be Sister Wilson. I can’t tell you how excited I am for the new adventure ahead, but my goodness, I am sure going to miss Sister Nybo and Nyiregyháza will not be the same without her. I have learned so much from her, she helped me work harder and love the people more, and I have improved on my language skills all because of Sister Nybo. She will be truly missed.
The sun is out, birds are chirping and the ice cream shops are opening. Nyiregyháza couldn’t be better and we found many miracles this week. On Monday, we had quite the miracle with one of our investigators, Monika. We teach her half English and half the gospel. After teaching English, we started talking about the Book of Mormon. She told us that she has been praying to know the truth and she still hasn’t received an answer about whether it is true or not and that she will keep trying. Sister Nybo and I felt the impression to ask her about baptism. She perked up and was completely interested. Let me tell you, the spirit was so strong.
We had a powerful lesson with our investigator, Piroska who is 80 years old. She is a strong Catholic and looks and acts like a 30 year old. She has told us many times that she loves us, but she is not willing to change her beliefs and is happy where she is. The spirit gave us another impression to ask her just one more time to come to church and she said YES! So, on Sunday, we walked together to church and she loved it.
God really does work in mysterious ways. I can’t tell you how much I love being here. The people are incredible and the nicest people you will ever meet. This week a member and his wife invited us over for dinner just because we have been teaching their little son piano lessons. They surprised us with a full course meal, and delicious Suti (dessert) at the end. It just shows that there are good people around us everywhere you go.
I want you all to know that I love this gospel and it has changed my life. I don’t know where I would be without it. I hope you all have a wonderful week! God bless you all.
All my love, Whittaker Nővér
