Week 11 in Kaposvár

Hi everyone,

Last Wednesday we went to Budapest for transfers. Elder Phillips is now my new companion. He is from Florida and a great guy.
Elder Thomsen has also a new companion: Elder Murphy. I love my new district.

The big news this week was Dávid's baptism on Saturday. We went to the
Hotel Kardosfa which is about 20 km from the city.  It is a very nice place in the middle of a scenic nature reserve. David's brother, Gábor, baptized him and it was very nice to see when Gábor baptized his younger brother. The next day Dávid received the gift of the Holy Ghost. I performed the confirmation and it was a very special feeling. The Holy Ghost was so strong then, and I felt so grateful for the priesthood which gives us, weak and imperfect people, the opportunity to use the power of God here on Earth. I am also grateful that the Holy Ghost help us feel Heavenly Father's presence. After the confirmation, we sang the song "I Stand All Amazed" and as the title says, I did stand all amazed. Then later that morning it was so good to see Dávid when he received the sacrament for the first time as a member of the Church. It was a wonderful day.

Week 10 in Kaposvár

Hi all,

First of all, transfer calls came today! I'm staying in Kaposvár and Elder Phillips will be my new companion. He is from Elder Harris' group. Elder Harris is going to Kispest. I am glad that I can stay here and I think that it is going to be a very good transfer!

We visited Brigi twice this week (she is Évi's mom and Magdus' daughter, I Skyped from their home on Christmas). We helped in their garden. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining, and it was pleasant to work on this service project. It was a good change from the typical missionary work.

Week 9 in Kaposvár


This week we had interviews with President Szabadkai, so we went to Pécs. It was awesome to return to the city where I was ”born" and see all the cool places there.

During our English class we played a game called “Werewolf” (Loup Garou in French) and the people really enjoyed it.

On Saturday the branch had a musical night at church. There were a lot of songs, poems, funny tales, and members and visitors alike enjoyed it very much.

Week 8 in Kaposvár


First of all, there won’t be transfers next week but on February 22nd. This transfer is 10 weeks long because the previous one was only eight weeks long due to Christmas.

Last Sunday the brother of one of the less active members told us that he wants to be baptized. We met with and taught him several times this week. His baptismal date is set for February 25th. He is 13-years old and started to come to church on his own. This is going to be very good also for his mother, his older brother, as well as for the branch.
