Week 2 in Kaposvár

Merry Christmas to everyone once again!

It was very good to Skype with you on Sunday and it is always a big "morale boost." We talked about a lot of things, so this will be a short email.

We baked chocolate chip cookies on the 24th and we took them to the home of our investigators and members. Everyone invited us in and gave us a lot of treats, especially "szaloncukor" (Hungarian Christmas candy). We taught about the
the birth of Jesus quoting from Luke 2. That night a member family invited us to a delicious dinner.

Week 1 in Kaposvár

Hello everyone!

First of all, it is official: I am serving now in Kaposvár with a new partner: Elder Harris (California). This is his second transfer, so I will help finish his training.It was a very busy week with lots of interesting things happening. 

On Tuesday we took the newly arrived missionaries out streeting with us and that is always fun. This group seems excited and I am sure that they will do well. One of them was Elder Saito, from Brazil, who was an exchange student in Budapest a year ago. He said that Miguel was the first missionary whom he saw in Hungary. He also read from my blog!

Week 12 in Buda


Transfers are next week.
I think it is more likely that I will stay here in the office. But transfers are always unpredictable, so we'll see.
I have completely recovered from whatever I had last week and I feel good.
On Wednesday we had our zone field day, so all the missionaries in Budapest had a day off. We played sports like volleyball, soccer, and ping pong, ate pizza, and watched Finding Dory. It was all really fun.
In the evening we sang again at the Széll Kálmán square and I think I gave out more than a hundred pass-along cards in an an hour and a half, so it was a success.

Week 11 in Buda

Hi everybody,

It’s almost Christmas!!!

First of all, my companion and I were ill over the weekend. We got some food poisoning but we are good to go now!

We had quite a few programs this week.

Last Sunday we found a new investigator. Tibor is his name and he is an older man who is very kind and wants to quit smoking. His wife passed away a couple of years ago. He said that he was going to come to church on Sunday and he came!
