Week 4 in Pécs


This week went well and I will tell you some of the adventures that happened to us.

We knocked on a very old apartment and there were still Russian letters on the door! We talked through the door to a very old man who called us in for a moment to show his Bibles. We gave him a Book of Mormon for his collection. Outside, we talked to a group of older ladies and one said she had seen me there before. So I knew that she had definitely met Miguel! We found out that Miguel had given her a Book of Mormon when he served here about a year ago.

One day I decided that we should randomly take a bus and so we ended up in a small village near Pécs that is called Somogy. It is a very nice place, very rural and charming. A lot of dog barked at us, but we managed to talk to a lot of people.

Elder Fitzgerald and I cooked roast chicken with potatoes. We also made Hungarian crêpes (palacsinta). Many people invited us for lunch or dinner. One day we had four programs. :) The freezer in our apartment needed to be defrosted, so we melted the ice with a hairdryer.

There were splits this week and I was with Elder Lawrence. It was a very good experience and I learned a lot from him. We gave away 3 copies of the Book of Mormon that day and a total of eight during the week. An old man let us in, gave us water, and we talked to him about the church, gave him a Book of Mormon, and prayed together. A lot of times he said that he has a lot of respect for the Mormons and their way of life. Today, for p-day, we visited a cave (tettyei mésztufa-barlang) and it was great.

Thanks for all the emails!

Lots of love,
