Week 3 in Kecskemét


The most interesting thing that happened to us this week was that we went to a Hungarian high-school graduation. One young man from the ward, Krisztián, invited us to attend. Most men were wearing suits, so we were just like everyone else! There were many songs, music, and verse reciting. We also listened to two or three speakers and then some awards were given to the students with excellent marks. The ceremony lasted less than an hour and a half, so it's much shorter than the ones we have back home. There are many differences. For example, there is no graduation gown and nobody gets a diploma. In the middle of the ceremony, the students' parents were called to give flowers to their children. It didn't take place in a special banquet hall but on the school yard. Many ward members came to support Krisztián. At the end we were invited to a lunch in a nice hotel where we ate a lot of delicious and fancy meals. It was a very good program.

Our lessons went well this week. Our investigators are quite smart. On Saturday and Sunday there was a stake conference. There were many good speakers. From the stake presidency, Károly Vasvári said that "on a good Sunday you will be lifted up, and on a perfect Sunday you will lift up others." It is so true!

Next week, Elder Kearon will come from England and, of course, we will be Skype on Sunday for Mother's Day!

Love you all!
