Hello Friends and Family!
This week was a great one! The weather wasn’t all that good but we did meet with the most amazing people. We had a wonderful lesson with one of our investigators. We talked to him about the blessings of the temple and family history. He loved the idea of temples and how we can be together forever. Sister Wilson and I bore testimony and the spirit was so strong. I am so grateful for the knowlege I have that I can be together with my family, and someday I will see all my loved ones again and be in the presence of our loving Heavenly Father. Our ancestors are waiting patiently for their work to be done and it’s our job here on earth to help them have the opportunity to accept it. At the end of our lesson, we were all trying to control our emotions but that special spirit stayed with us the rest of the day.
We met with another wonderful couple again this week and they are doing incredible. They told us recently of a special experience they had. It is very expensive to get married in Hungary, and you have to wait three months just to actually receive the marriage papers. Our investigator knows the church is true and wants to be baptized, but first they need to get married. After many prayers and fasting, asking the Lord where in the world they will get all the money they need to get married, he received an answer from God. Right then, his girlfriend walked in the door with an idea how they might be able to afford it! So it looks like it will be July! I know God answers our prayers when we most need them. He knows our plan, and where we exactly need to go. We just need to keep up our faith and never ever doubt.
We also felt so grateful that five of our investigators came to church this Sunday and two less actives. There really is no greater happiness then seeing the ones you teach and grow to love, growing closer to the gospel and have a desire to change.
We have started a tradition with J and M by having an American dessert party! This week we decided to make delicious peanut butter fudge. In the meantime, we played a game of charades for all the Hungarian vocab words we didn’t know in the kitchen. It was quite the adventure and it turned out to be delicious with many laughs along the way.
This week during personally study, I came across one of my new favorite quotes by Mother Teresa. “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” It’s not what we say, but how we are living our life that will change the people around us.
I hope you are all doing well. Just know that I am praying for you! God bless you all.
All my love, Whittaker Nővér
