Sister Whittaker’s Second Week in Hungary

August 4, 2014


The work is incredible over here in Hungary. This week I have seen many miracles everyday and I know the Lord has been with me every step of the way. We are never alone. 

We have the most amazing investigator named Náni who I talked about previously before. We met with her twice this week and I dont think I have met anyone more tender. Everytime we come over she has a cold beverage, crackers and cookies all layed out on the tray and beautiful china for us to use. She is just tiny and no family or friends to be with. We taught her about the plan of salvation and the restoration which she enjoyed. At the end of our lesson we asked her to say the prayer and as she began to pray she just burst into tears. She thanked Heavenly Father for sending us to her and for changing her life. Edít told us that she knows exactly why she needs to be here on earth and she loved reading the Book of Mormon. After our visit with her, she always makes sure we are leaving with some kind of gift. She is my angel.

Wednesday was quite the day. We streeted for a total of 5 hours and didnt have much success. I couldn’t feel my legs at the end of the day but I did sleep very well. :)

On Thursday we headed to Buda to get personal interviews with our Mission President. Our train was running 30 minutes late and we didn’t want to be late so we ran all through the train station and up the longest escalator that is seriously a mile long. Well, at least it felt that way when we were trying to run up it. On our train ride back we gave out four pass along cards and met wonderful people. 
Saturday we had our Kecskemét party with about 4 different zones. Many people were there and it was great to meet all the different members from different areas. We played sports, ate watermelon and got to know investigators and members.

Békéscaba is full of miracles. They have the most charming outdoor shopping area with tree lined streets, biking lanes for the Hungarians because EVERYONE is riding their bike. Everyone always has an ice cream in their hand and the weather is beautiful. I sure do love it here and I never want to leave.

I love this gospel with all my heart. It has changed my life forever and to be able to share it and bare testimony of it is indescribable. Yesterday was my first fast sunday here in Békéscabe and it was truly a blessing to hear all the members testimonies. It made me think to myself, “am I doing enough?” Because I have never seen such dedicated members.

I love this work and it is a blessing to be apart of it. I dont know where I would be without this gospel or the many people who are back at home praying for me. Thank you for all your love and support.

God be with you all!

All my love, Whittaker Nővér
