December 3, 2012
Well, it's already another transfer. Sister Hudspeth seems pretty excited to be going home, and we've had a pretty good last week to celebrate. We have some of the coolest investigators probably of all time. OH!- but before I start talking about that, I should probably tell you what's happening with transfers. Well-- you guessed it... I'm staying here in Buda. My new companion will be Sister Hardy. She was actually companions with my greeny, Sister Fox, in the MTC. It should be really fun. I've heard a lot of really great things about her, and she is adorable- so I'm guessing we'll have a lot of fun together. :) Sister Kramer trained her, and I love Sister Kramer! So i'm really excited for her to get here. I'll be breaking her into Budapest right away, with 4 programs in a row on transfer day! haha Hope she's excited. :)
I don't know if you remember me telling you about Rozália... but her baptism was actually this weekend! :) It was really great. 2 other people were baptized as well. She asked me to sing at the baptism. :) So I sang "Savior, Redeemer of My Soul," and Elder Decker played the piano for me. It was so great to see her make the commitment to be baptized, she was so excited about it too. She's going to be an awesome member. Her Husband and daughter came also. When I asked her husband what he felt about the experience, he told me that he cried. :) He's come to church a couple times with her now, maybe he will become interested in taking the lessons as well.
Lajos came to church for the first time! I think it was all really new for him- but hopefully he had a great time. Andrea is the coolest! She came as well with her friend Judit. We are actually having lunch with both of them today, for Sister Hudspeth's goodbye lunch. We are also teaching a new investigator named István, he is a referral from one of the members. He's one of the nicest guys ever, and seems really accepting of everything. Detti- his member friend, is so awesome at bearing testimony and helping in our lessons. Members really are the best, and we have some of the coolest members here in Buda. The sacrament room is beginning to be a tight squeeze. I'm interested to see what they will do in the next few months with the ward. I guess they could split it, or find a new building? But it's really exciting to see that the work is really progressing! Zsolt has a bap. date now!- January 26th! So hopefully we can help him feel ready by that date. :)
Well, Sorry this email is super boring. I just read back through it and almost fell asleep. But writing these emails every week can be exhausting! I really wish I could fill you in on every detail... but my journal will do that for you later. :) I love you all lots! Grandma and Grandpa, I got your package with the peanut butter and chocolate!! Thank you so much! My companion was really grateful too. :) Alan, congratulations of finishing the iron man! That is awesome! I'm really proud of you! Maybe one day I will be that cool. Also, Holly I hope you are feeling better soon. And Kassie, if you are reading this, I love your face!!! Please write me if you have some time! I want to hear what is happening with you! Anyways, Take care! Talk to you next Monday.
Lots of Love,
