Sister Whittaker’s 58th Week
July 13, 2015
We had a wonderful week here in beautiful Szeged. This week it got up to 107 degrees, but nonetheless, we worked our hardest and found two families along the way. While we were out streeting this week, we get talking to this women who is interested in English. She was so excited and literally screamed at the top of her lungs once we said it was free. We were finally able to meet them and they are a miracle family. We taught about the Book of Mormon and how we have a living prophet on the earth today. They loved our message and committed to read the Book of Mormon and to find the truth.
On Tuesday, while sitting on a bench waiting for the bus to come, I feel something wet and heavy drop on my hand. I look down to see a big glob of bird poop on my hand and without much thought, I flung it all over Elder Martineaus new backpack. I guess there is a first time for everything.
We had a wonderful program with our investigator who is trying to find the truth. She told us that she had tried to pray to know if the Book of Mormon was true but had still not received an answer. We asked her if she had read the Book of Mormon. She hesitantly said, “no”. I know that if we truly want to want to receive answers to our questions, we need to read, ponder and pray. It is not an easy process and takes a whole lot of faith and trial. God will always answer us, when we humble ourselves and seek to find the truth. The door is always open.
Every Sunday we have been going to visit the most incredible family. They always have a delicious dinner prepared, we practice english and talk about religion. Yesterday we had the most amazing experience. We spoke of the restoration, and at the end bore our testimonies. I can’t explain the feelings I had, but I felt a rush of warmth all throughout my body that I have never felt before. I look over at the wife and she had tears in her eyes. I know she felt what I was feeling. The spirit is so real and can touch anyones heart. I love and adore that family! I know the Gospel is true.
Thank you all for your support and prayers. It’s because of all your prayers we are finding so many miracles. I love Hungary, I love the Gospel. And I am so grateful for my Savior. God is so good. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
Do something nice for someone, and make their day even better.
Love you all,
