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.
On Sunday the Petersons gave their farewell talks and everyone was very sorry to see them leaving. They helped the missionaries and members a lot here in the branch. They were good examples to all of us. On Wednesday they go home to California.
The daily scripture program is a great success here: almost all members and investigators get them. Today's scripture is D&C 100:12.
Lots of love,
