There are transfers this week and I am staying here in Kecskemét. My new companion will be Elder Allred. He came two groups after me and he is from Colorado. I went streeting with him on his first day in the country. He is a good guy and will be a good companion to work with. Elder Knight is going to Székesfehérvár and will serve there with Elder Dixon.
We met many church members this week and shared the first presidency message from the Liahona. One of them has a good samurai sword. Another one is an indexing pro and has indexed more than 10,000 records. He showed us how to do it and Elder Knight and I indexed a little bit. He said that not long ago he indexed a list of people who had been executed. Who said that indexing is boring?
We had a very good "four pillars" lesson with an investigator. They are prayer, scripture reading, going to church, and keeping the commandments. These four things uphold our testimonies and if one of the columns is missing or is not strong enough, then all may be over.
After the lesson the wind blew heavily and rain began to fall, so we ran fast to the chapel where we found shelter against the storm. It was very rough with hailstones that were the size of walnuts. There was a lot of damage to trees and buildings and it created deep puddles. It was an interesting adventure biking home. It was a bit like the big storm in the movie "The Other Side of Heaven."
We also had zone training this week with a lot of good information, but it was four hours long. It was a long time to sit and listen, which was not easy.
We also had a sports day with young people this week and we played basketball and soccer.
On Sunday the weather was stormy again, with lightning and thunder, and we thought that there would be only be 20 to 30 people at church, but more than 40 came, a little more than last week. The members here are very strong!
Wishing all of you a nice week!
