This week in the office I focused a lot on landlords and apartment issues, translating a letter for one of the senior missionaries, doing the packets for the group of missionaries going home in December, and selecting pictures for the Christmas slide show.
Elder Nordberg goes home in December at the end of this transfer. He will end up serving 25 months in Hungary. I enjoy working also with Elder Römer and the Bagozzis in the office.
We had splits with the zone leaders. Elder Lawrence and I taught an investigator about prayer, and then for English class we taught the people about sports. While tracting, we met this cool French man with whom I exchanged a few French words and we explained to him our purpose as missionaries. Elder Lawrence spoke to him about baptism in a straightforward but natural way.
We had a planned program with a less-active member, but it got cancelled, so we tracted with the ward mission leader instead and that was good. I also learned that people can be rude to fellow Hungarians too!
This week in our district we focused on faith, and while tracting when people said that they were Catholics, or Calvinists, or atheists, I thought that faith in Christ can help anyone develop a stronger relationship with our Heavenly Father. And the restored gospel is the best way because it contains the teachings of Jesus Christ is in entirety.
Take care of yourselves and be happy!
Have a great week,
