Sister Whittaker’s 65th Week
August 31, 2015
Hello Friends and Family,
This weeks letter will be short because we don’t have much time, but I have to say it’s been one of the craziest, busiest weeks here in Kecskemét. We saw many miracles this week as well as hardships. This week we were able to meet with a women we met on the street last week. She lived in New York for about 14 years and speaks English almost fluently. She had heard crazy things about Mormons and one of them was that Mormon’s can’t swim. We were able to answer all her questions, taught her about the restoration and reassured her that yes, Mormons can actually swim.
Thanks to Andras for taking us out last week, and for sending some great pictures!
We are meeting with a family that has committed to be baptized in September. They are such a special family and you can see the light and happiness in their eyes when we bring up baptism. They came to church this Sunday all three hours and seemed to love it.
I want you all to know how much I love this Gospel. Tomorrow I only have 100 days left on my mission. It honestly does not seem real and I wish I could continue being a full time missionary for the rest of my life here in Hungary. I love the people of Hungary and I feel so blessed to have lived and served here. My testimony has grown in ways I never thought it would. The Lord asks so little of us, and yet gives us everything. I know God loves us and is aware of us. I know he knows us by name and knows how to help us. I know this Gospel is true.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Remember to live each moment in the present. Love each and every moment because you will never get it back. God bless you all.
