August 24th, 2015

Everyone is asking me how I’m feeling about coming home, but I honestly don’t know! I guess I’m still in the denial stage! It hits me every once in a while that my time is getting shorter, but Sis. Giullian is great to keep me focused and I feel like I still have a year or so out here! 
I was praying a lot to improve my Hungarian so the next day at church, I had to translate from English to Hungarian to the entire ward (SO much harder than Hungarian to English haha) and then I was told that I was teaching my gospel principles class to the entire ward for the next hour! haha so I had my prayers answered, but be careful what you pray for! 
Streeted a man this week and after I said my approach, he just slowly turned and began walking away, super slow. We needed to go the way he was going so possibly the most awkward rejection/streeting approach yet haha! 
Szent István day was this week, great festival and they gave for free the BEST lecsó I’ve ever tasted! mmmm SO dang good!! 
Our miracle for the week!
We had a great zone training on finding with faith this week. We were out tracting and we have really been trying to work a ton on finding with more faith and to be “fearless” at the door, no doubt of rejection. We said a prayer after about 20 doors and asked for a return apt. and to give out 2 BOM before we had to go in at 9. We knocked the next door and the néni told us, I don’t have time right now, but come back next Wed at 6:00! We were shocked! An amazing instant miracle... a few seconds later, her hubby came to the door and asked if we talked on the phone that day... turns out they were a less active couple who had moved! haha It wasn’t quite the return we were expecting, but still an answer to prayer! We tracted on and on and nothing, said another prayer and the coooolest lady answered! We talked to her for about 20 mins. and set up a return appt. I CAN’T wait to meet with her! It was so amazing, how right after our two prayers, they were the only 2 people to talk with us. Prayer works. I know that God is real and that He truly does listen and answer our prayers if we exercise faith in Him and trust Him. 
Love you!!!

She loves Star Wars so I made her a little Yoda!
 Her first hungarian bread! haha 
This nice priest took this blurry pic and was so proud of it! 
haha Said it was a great view of the cathedral behind!

So we have been doing a TON of finding lately. It’s been great, but I wish Sister Giullian had more opportunities to teach the lessons. We practice with each other a lot, but it’s not the same! This Sunday I set up with almost every member here to go visit them this week, so I’m excited to teach more lessons with her. Honestly, I’m really starting to miss teaching them too! We go streeting in the mornings and then a ton of tractings in the afternoons. We find that is when most people are home and that’s the biggest chance we have to find and teach families.
István is still doing great! He is already finding names to take to the temple. He is so so cool! There is a family history person here and I am SO stoked to meet with her! Hopefully sometime in the next week or two.
It’s been tougher with a ton of finding lately, but there are always miracles that happen everytime. They aren’t always big either. Last night we were on our third hour tracting. I don’t think I have ever had the door slammed so many times (there have been missionaries from other churches tracting here, so the people are really tired of missionaries already) then it started to pour. We were so happy after being so hot! We were pretty much drenched and only had a few more minutes until we had to go in for the night. There were only two more houses on the street. The first was a real nice lady who was the only one to listen to our message, just a short five minute message on eternal families. She told us how important her family is to her and loved it. We’re hopefully going to go back when she is back from her trip. The last house, we saw this cute little néni eating ice cream in the rain. She was so adorable! Not interested now, but just told us how great it was that we are here. Leaving our families, friends and homes and paying to be here for a year and a half. She told us to just keep going and that God is looking out for us and loves us.
Have a great week! Love you all!
