Week 1 in Kecskemét

Hello everyone!

Well, I have successfully arrived in Kecskemét! We left Kaposvár on Wednesday morning. As we were travelling to Budapest, it began to snow. Fortunately, I had my winter coat in my suitcase so I put it on. The next day it snowed again. Who would have thought that there would be snow in Hungary on April 20? Poor greenies! They certainly thought that this country is just like Norway.

Kecskemét is bigger than Kaposvár and quite beautiful. Our apartment is very modern and it even has air conditioning, so it will be good in the summer when it gets hot. The chapel is very big and beautiful. The ward here is large and strong with many returned missionaries, families, and youth. Elder Knight is a great guy. He loves to exercise, so we work out hard every morning.

Week 18 in Kaposvár


I'm going to Kecskemét! My companion will be Elder Knight from Arizona. He is two transfers ahead of me. There are also two sisters in our district (STLs) and I will be the district leader.

First of all, I am very glad that I had the opportunity to serve here in Kaposvár with Elder Harris and then with Elder Phillips. While I have been here, I have seen changes in people's lives. There was a church member who used to have problems with the Word of Wisdom and tithing, but now he is preparing to go to the Temple. Many investigators were touched by the message of the restored gospel and read the Book of Mormon regularly. I learned a lot here and have good memories of Kaposvár. I am also happy that I have an opportunity to serve in a new city with a new companion. I think it will be a very good transfer in Kecskemét with Elder Knight, and I will learn a lot there.

Week 17 in Kaposvár


First of all, there will be transfers next week. Tuesday will be our p-day.

During most of our teaching this past week we watched "Prince of Peace", the Easter video that the church put out through the website. If you haven't watched it yet, do it because it is great.

In our English class with the advanced group we held job interviews and they were good. We laughed a lot when people chose funny occupations like being a pirate.

Week 16 in Kaposvár


The highlight of this week was General Conference. The talks were very good with uplifting messages. All of the sessions were filled with gold nuggets! My favourites were: Elder Rasband (Let the Holy Spirit Guide), Elder Bragg (Brighter and Brighter Until the Perfect Day), President Eyring (Walk with Me), Sister Jones (A Sin-Resistant Generation), Elder Hales (Becoming a Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ), President Nelson (Drawing the Power of Jesus Christ into Our Lives), and Elder Choi (Don't Look Around, Look Up!). If you didn't watch all the talks but a couple of sessions, then I urge you to watch the rest of them! The World Report was also very cool.
