Well transfer week is over and we are onto another transfer. I am stoked for this transfer and it is going to be super good. I can already tell that we are going to have a million miracles happen in this mission so I am pumped.
On Wednesday we woke up and this is the day when we have to take all our stuff to the mission home for transfers. So I look out the window.... Straight up was snowing... harder than it ever did in the winter. I was just stunned... Like are you kidding me. So it was a pretty rough transfer day. We walked in the snow and then it turned to rain all the way to Budapest and then we got new elders into our area and we had to help them get to their new apartment so it was a long wet day but it ended well, because we went tracting and mid tracting I got a call from one of our potential investigators and she told me that she wouldn’t be coming to English class but that she was more interested in our church. She had been learning all about it and felt that it was true and wanted to know how she could become Mormon... I about dropped the phone and died. I was like uhhh well its easy you just meet with us and we teach you. So we are hopefully going to be meeting with her next week and, I guess her baptism in a couple weeks? Haha!! It was a crazy miracle and we are really excited!!!
The next day we went out tracting and got yelled at by this old lady and she said she was going to call the cops but we just kept tracting like usual and finished the building and then went onto another building and came to a door where a really nice old lady opened the door and she let us in and we talked to her about the Book of Mormon and she had really amazing questions and so we are going to go back to her in a couple days and hopefully teach her the gospel! Sop that was really amazing and the miracles didn’t stop there.
We had the 30 year anniversary for the Hungary Budapest mission being set apart as a mission and Dora and Attila came and one of the women in our ward that had been a member ever since the beginning got up and bore her testimony and it was just like how we found Attila and Dora and she started to cry and leaned over to me and said maybe some day I will be up there telling everyone about when you found us. I was like, yes, yes you will be. After, one of the members was really great and started to talk to them and fellowship them and it was just a really cool experience. We are meeting with them today and made a big old plan to give them to prepare them for baptism. It should be great!!
That same day we were tracting and prayed specifically to be guided to where we needed to be and a young kid opened the door so I told him that I was an American because young kids like that, they think its funny how I talk, and we told him why we were there and he let us in, so I walk in the house and take off my shoes right as the mom comes running around the corner screaming WAIT NO DON’T LET THEM IN. I was like uhhh should we not come in? And she grudgingly said no fine we will hear your message. So we sat down and dropped a spiritual Bomb on them and the kid really wanted to meet again after and his mom said we could come back as long as we help him with English, but she opened up too and she is just shy and doesn’t want to say that she felt the spirit. So that was super cool too.
On Sunday I was waiting for church to start and out of nowhere I saw Bence walk in with his whole family and they came from Győr to Pest for some award they were giving and they all came and gave me a huge bear hug and we talked and they sat by me in church. It was the best thing in the world to see them again. I missed them so much. Then after church we went tracting for a super long time because usually Sundays are our finding days where we go out and tract for a couple hours, so that’s what we did. We went out to this random place and the first door we knocked let us in and we had a “textbook let in” if I do say so myself. We taught him, told him we would like to come back and teach more and got his phone number and then left and got right back out to work. Its just that easy... just kidding we are so blessed. Seriously was so cool. Then 20 minutes later we rang a lady’s bell and she came out and started talking to us and said she came to our English class and was like, “you know what just come on in.” so we got let in again and talked to her and she is coming to English class again and it is going to be super cool. So we have a whole ton of new investigators that are really potential and we are hoping we will be able to meet with all of them.
I would like to finish with a thought on the spirit and what it takes for it to be in our lives and for it to lead and guide us. We had a leadership meeting this week and we talked about how the spirit can only lead us and guide us if we are worthy, praying and seeking for the spirit and then COURAGEOUSLY following the promptings we receive. I know this is true and missionary work is so much easier when we just ask for the help and guidance. God knows the address of all the golden investigators we just have to humble ourselves and ask for him to take us there. This can be applied into all our lives, not even missionary work. Be worthy, seek the spirit, and then follow it wherever it takes you.
I love you all.
