Week 6 in Buda


Last Saturday, for our P-day, we climbed up Gellért Hill and enjoyed an awesome view of Budapest and the fall colours. Sunday was the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Revolution, so there were Hungarian flags all around the city.

We went to a hospital with a member on Wednesday to visit his aunt who had a broken leg. We talked with her and read some verses from the New Testament. It was a good service opportunity. Hospitals in Hungary are definitely much different from hospitals back home and this one was pretty old and low-tech.

On Wednesday we visited a member family’s home and we taught them the story of Nephi building a boat and the lessons associated with this story. It was nice to be teaching, since in the office teaching opportunities are pretty rare. The trip home was long and adventurous, but fun.

We had zone training on Thursday and I did a role play with the mission president which was fun.

For English class we had a Halloween theme and we taught them Halloween vocabulary and wrote a spooky story together.

Other than that, it was business as usual in the mission office.

With love,

Elder Gonzalez

The Benkô family invited us to their home.
They prepared this delicious palacsinta cake for dessert.
