Hello,
This has been a great week. Things are going well and Elder Stanley and I are working hard.
We had some good times. One of our investigators, Laci, came to church. That was really good for him. It's really annoying sometimes because 4 people promised us they'd come to church, but only one of them come. But I was so happy Laci came. It shows that he really wants to learn and that's awesome. We're working with him and he's progressing nicely.

Elder Stanley and I taught Sunday school in Hungarian with absolutely no advance warning. It was pretty interesting. We taught the youth about how they can make their own decisions. There was a funny moment when I asked how we should read the scriptures and one of the youth said, "We study them" and I asked "What does that mean?" (Az mit jelent?) and Elder Stanley said, "It means to study." It was pretty funny just because of the language joke by changing languages.
It's probably not as funny over email. Oh, well.

Other than that, we had some fun times finding. We talked to a lot of people. Today, when we went into the usual pékség (bakery thingy) to buy bread, the lady asked us if we had a moment and asked some questions about the church and what we are doing in Hungary. It was really cool.

Elder Stephens and I went on splits this week. That was a lot of fun. He's awesome. He was here last transfer and it was fun to be able to joke with him about stuff that happened last transfer. It was really cool. He's a great missionary and he helped me a lot.

The pictures are of how foggy it was one morning. It's super foggy sometimes, it's crazy. And one of Elder Stanley and I emailing. I took it about 5 minutes ago. The lady that watches the library photobombed. Sort of.

Anyways, Kecskemét is the best. We've got some good people that we are working with. Good times are ahead.


Love,
Elder Terry

November 7, 2016

Hello,

It has been another wonderful week in Kecskemét, by which I mean a few days. It has really flown by. I feel like I had P-day yesterday.

We've had some fun times. We went on splits with the Zone leaders on Friday. That was really cool. I was with Elder Szerdi, who is in Elder Seamons group. Splits are always a lot of fun, and I learned a lot. Elder Szerdi encouraged me to be more bold. Sometimes when we talk to people, we act like we are inconveniencing them, but we are really bringing them the best thing they could ever have. And that's how we need to act. So I encourage all of you to boldly share the gospel.

Other than that, we had Stake Conference this weekend. That was really cool, we got some good council and it was really cool to hear from a Seventy. He encouraged us to bear our testimonies 3 times a day, so we're going to start doing that. It's going to be great.

We've had a busy week, but a lot of it was because of traveling to Budapest. It's crazy travelling around the country. It's scary sometimes, but it all works out.

Today I was reading Alma 26, which is awesome. I had a fun thought. In verse 36 it talks about how Ammon and his brethren were wanderers in a strange land. I read that, and I thought, that's how I feel. I'm wandering around in a strange land with a strange language. It's been a great experience, but sometimes it's crazy.
I'm not sure where I was going with this thought. Oh well. You should all read Alma 26. It's a good chapter.

Anyways, here are more pictures from the Mindenszentek napja. This computer is béna, so it's easier to use.
