We had some crazy times this week. Some highlights are:
President Szabadkai called to ask if we want to have a car to work with. We haven't gotten one yet, but on friday I drove a car around Budapest for a driving test and watched a lot of videos about driving safe. Hopefully sometime this week or next week we'll get a car.
Our landlord is going to replace the carpet in our apartment soon, and we won't be able to live in Dunaújváros for a few days. We are going to see when that happens, but it'll be fun. We helped him put the new flooring stuff in the apartment for storage and while we were carrying stuff he squeezed our arms and said, "Biceps." Good times.
We had exchanges with the assistants. That was fun. I like Elder Fitzgerald. We got let in by a catholic guy for 5 minutes.
We almost translated for Sisters in England twice. They are teaching a hungarian and they wanted help via skype, but their investigator rescheduled twice. (This was while we were in Buda with the assistants)
We found out that low blood pressure is not an excuse for drinking coffee.
And that was some good times. We've been trying to visit or talk to the Hingyiék every day. They didn't come to church which was sad, but we have some great hopes for them.
We have been working with a less active named István for a while now. He still hasn't come to church, but he is doing a lot better. He is a lot happier and cheerful than he was when we started visiting him.
For a spiritual thought, this comes from Borsos Elnök's talk in church on sunday. It was about Matthew 25, and it kinda changed the way I see that chapter. It has 3 parables, the ten virgins, the talents, and the sheep and the goats. When you look at the moral of each parable you get a pretty cool message. 1 Prepare (the 5 foolish and unprepared virgins didn't get to party) 2 Develop your talents. 3 Serve. It's a good guideline for life actually, and that was a really cool thing to learn about. I encourage you to read this chapter and think about how you can prepare, develop your talents, and serve others.
