December 15th, 2014

We got a Christmas tree!!! :)
We were invited to Sindy’s school program, so we wanted to buy her flowers. We went into the 
flower shop and bought one white rose, when an older man behind us says in English,
“No, no Happy Christmas for you! One plus one plus!' Grabs another rose for Sister Whittaker 
and bought them for us! Wow, so so sweet of him! 
Made our whole day! I don’t know why people are so nice to us!

Our turn for Sunday dinner, we made tacos and taco salad! :)
We handed out ten Book of Mormons this week! :)
After writing inside, we wrapped them up and put a ribbon on them.

How was your week?! Awe, that Christmas party with the family sounds so fun!! I loved seeing the pic of everyone together with the happy pop! I miss you guys so much! haha Don’t worry, I’ll make up for all of the “happy pop” next year!

My week was so good! We had 26 lessons, so it flew by! I wish you could meet all of our investigators, we are teaching so many different kinds of people!

Klára. Welllll she was telling us how her life was hard, and that she got a disease that made her brain come out of her head. haha I thought for sure that I just understood her wrong, so I asked her again and yep, that’s exactly what she said happened, came right out of her ear! Said its a problem now, cuz now she can’t remember where she put her whiskey... haha!

Matjás, he is fluent in English. He meets with us “just to practice English” but we talk about the Gospel the entire time. He is super super athiest, but asks us sooo many questions about God and our beliefs. He said that he had one big question for us, that he has never understood. He said, “Why did God send Jesus Christ to earth just to prove that He loves us. That doesn’t make sense, that is so stupid! Why did he have to send him and then kill him just to say that He loves us??
Wow, I was blown away. I have taken it so for granted what I know. He had no idea why Jesus Christ volunteered to come to earth, suffer and die for us. It was not “to prove that God loved us” but sooo much more. We explained the Atonement to him, what that means to us and how it has to the power to change our lives. We told him how we can use the Atonement to receive the power and strength to overcome our weaknesses and trials in this life and allows us to return to our Father in Heaven once more after this life.

Lara, cutest little 9 year old blonde, blue eyed girl ever. Her Mom has us come over to teach her English and is pretty closed off to the Gospel. We shared the “He is The Gift” video with them and she really liked it. Lara looked so curious and turned to her Mom and asked her who Jesus Christ is? Her Mom was pretty panicky and said they will talk later. She was staring at my name tag so intently, and asked her again, Mom, who is Jesus Christ?! Her Mom said that she will talk with her Dad later and see if we should teach her about Him or not. Lara is so so cute!! Ugh, I just wanted to tell her everything right then and there, just about our loving Heavenly Father, His son, prayer, everything! I can’t wait to go back!

I loooove the “He is the Gift” video!!! We just read it in Hungarian while we watch it and have shared it so many times this week! I am so so sooo excited to Skype and to see all of you, but I also don’t want it to come, because I don’t want Christmas to be over! I’ve loved sharing the “real” or “true” meaning of Christmas this year and am so lucky to be a missionary this Christmas time!

Oh, aaaand I’m going to be serving a 19 month mission!!! lol Don’t remember if I’ve told you or not, but I am almost for sure coming home next October!

Love you all!
Sister Schnoor
