Sister Whittaker’s 9th Week in Hungary

September 23, 2014


Szia family and friends!

Now before I tell you the bittersweet news, let me tell you about my week first! We’ve had a few rainstorms here in Békéscsaba and it’s cold enough for coat weather. We kept ourselves very busy and came up with some creative ideas to find people. Yesterday we compiled together pictures of Jesus Christ, the temple and family. We walked around and asked people their thoughts or feelings towards the pictures and we were very successful!

Our wonderful investigator, Rozsa is rock solid and has developed a love for the Book of Mormon. We have a new investigator by the name of Davíd who is such a champion! He is fourteen years old but looks like he could be twenty. He is very religious and attends the Catholic Church every Sunday, which is very rare for someone as young as he is. This week we invited him to our church and he came on Sunday and LOVED it!


A few of our investigators really struggle to commit to pray to God. I came across something so beautiful during my personal studies. It is Gods generous invitation to ask and it shall be given unto us. This timeless offer to provide personal revelation is extended to all of His children. It sounds too good to be true, but it is VERY true and all we have to do is ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Jesus Christ. It is simple as that!

I know that God lives and hears all our prayers He loves us and all we have to do is humble ourselves, get on our knees, take that leap of faith and pray. As a missionary, you feel very incapable of doing the Lords work. But what I have learned is that God doesn’t call the qualified, but qualifies the called.

This week is transfers week and I am leaving tomorrow to serve in Buda! I can’t tell you how excited I am to serve in the heart of Hungary but it will be extremely hard to leave Békéscsaba, the people, the ward and my incredible trainer, Geröly Nővér. I know that God knows best and He sees the whole picture. Always trust in Him.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and God bless! You’re all in my prayers.

BUDA here I come!

All my love, Whittaker Nővér
