Week 13 in Kecskemét


We were involved in a great adventure this week. We went back to our apartment on Friday night, but the new neighbour had closed the door to the staircase. The door always stays open and we do not have a key for it. The neighbour wasn't at home and the owner did not have a key. (He doesn't even live in Kecskemét.) So we were locked up. We called President Szabadkai and he told us to go to Szeged to spend the evening there. The train was leaving in 20 minutes, so we ran to the train station and took the train that left at 9:20 p.m.. We arrived in Szeged at 10:20 p.m. The zone leaders were in Békéscsaba in splits, so we had to take a bus to go to the apartment of the other elders there. It was almost 11:00 p.m. when we finally arrived. There was nothing prepared for such an unexpected "split", but luckily they had a large, relatively comfortable apartment. The next day we went back to Kecskemét but we were still locked out, so we went to the chapel. Then the owner called saying that the neighbour would be home at around 1 p.m.  When we finally met him, we made a copy of the key, and were able to get back to our apartment. It was quite a good story.

This week we also helped an older sister with indexing. First it went slowly, but later she did very well. During tracting, a 70 year-old néni let us in and she was very nice. The weather was not too bad this week. We held the district meeting outdoors on Thursday.

Have a nice week,
