Hello Friends and Family!
Oh what an eventful week it has been! I first off want to thank you all for the birthday wishes. It was so kind of you all to think of me. I had a wonderful birthday here in Hungary and received much love from all my Hungarian friends. Thank you all again!
This week was an incredible week full of all kinds of miracles. On Tuesday one of the biggest, most amazing things happened with our investigator who we have been teaching for a few weeks now. We sat and talked about life. How his job is going and somehow got talking about our last program we had with him about temples and families. He said while in those very few minutes, when all was quiet, “I felt this calm, loving feeling wrap around me, and I knew it was the spirit”. He then talked about our first interaction together when we gave him an English flyer and how he felt since that time and how his life has completely changed. Sister Wilson and I felt the impression to ask him to be baptized. With a little doubt in our hearts, we confidently asked and he said, “YES!” “I know this is the path I need to take to make it back to God.” Then and there we set up a specific date, May 16th. I can’t explain to you the joy that I felt and continue to feel. It was a night I will never forget. As missionaries, you never really know the seeds you plant and the lives that will be changed. All we need to remember is to have patience and by small and simple things, great things come to pass.
The senior couple, Elder and Sister Viernes, the missionaries and Maija spoiled me on my birthday with a yummy lunch and American brownies to top it all off. This week the weather was beautiful and you almost would have thought summer was already here. On Saturday we had an amazing dinner with a wonderful family, also provided by Brother and Sister Viernes in their home. After dinner we watched a special Mormon message and shared a few testimonies.
It was a special week and I feel so blessed to be able to be here in Hungary, sharing the gospel! There really is no happier, better, greater work than this.
I love you all and I want to thank you again for making my birthday so special. I wish you all a wonderful, safe week.
All my love, and more…
