Week 8 in Pécs

Last P-day we went to the Pécs cathedral and the inside was really nice. We went up the tower and the view was great. After that we went tracting and we got a let-in! The lady who answered the door was in her 60s and said that she respects us, but she is Calvinist. However, she accepted a Book of Mormon and said that she would love to meet with us again.

We had interviews with the mission president on Tuesday. It went well and President Szabadkai said I would probably stay here in Pécs. He also said that after the next transfer he will come with me to where my Hungarian family is from to help me do genealogy work.
The next day we got another let-in, which was only two houses down from our previous let-in. We taught a member too who used to be a Temple worker, but can't go anymore. She really wants to go back and it's cool how the Temple is still beckoning her back 10 years later. This gave me a stronger appreciation for the Temple. During tracting I got to share the first vision in English, so the English MTC experience was useful after all haha!

We taught English class this Thursday and it was really fun and full of laughs. I really enjoy teaching it. Elder Fitzgerald passed his 1 year mark a couple of days ago, so we ate ice cream and doughnuts as a district.

On Saturday we taught an inactive elderly couple. The wife passed out after the closing prayer. Her husband said this occurs pretty frequently. We gave her a priesthood blessing and this experience taught me to always be ready and that the priesthood is used to bless others.

We also did a lot of tracting (7 days a week), streeting, tabling, calls, and teaching this week. I cooked a lot and was fed too with lots of good Hungarian food. The weather here fluctuates a lot from hot and humid to cool and windy and stormy.

Sok szeretettel,

Elder Gonzalez
