Hey there! I'm Teagen! I live in a tiny village in southern Alberta, Canada. I am the youngest of 5 kids and I love my family more than anything! I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know it, I live it, I love it! I have decided to serve a full time mission (18 months) and have been assigned to labour in the Hungary Budapest Mission speaking Hungarian. I hope you like what you read as you follow my journey in Hungary!

Well, we got transfer calls this
morning and it’s nothing that I expected! I am going to be white washing
Békéscsaba and I’m going to be training again! AH! Didn’t see either of those
coming at all! I am nervous and I have a LOT of work to do there, but I’m so
excited and it will for sure keep me busy and working up until the end of my
This last week was great, but went
sooo fast! We had interviews, they were all in Hungarian and super good!
György is doing so well, he ended
our program with a prayer and prayed so sincerely that he could do the things
that he needs to and that he could be baptized. We had a great program and he
is progressing really really well.
Ferenc, it was an amazing program
with him!!! We started by talking about church and the special feelings that he
had when he took of the sacrament and sang hymns. We explained how that special
feeling was the Spirit. It is how our Father in Heaven communicates with us and
tells us how something is right in our lives and when something is true. We
watched the restoration film and asked him to focus on his feelings to see if he
will feel the same. At the end of the film, we asked how he felt, he was
crying. He was so choked up and couldn’t speak for several minutes. The spirit
was there so so strong and I loved just sitting there in silence and letting it
work on him. He finally said “beautiful.” Then said that the silence is good
and we sat for a few more minutes. We both bore testimony to him of the
restoration and how the feelings that he is feeling right now, is God telling
him that it is true. He agreed and said that he knows that it is, he knows that
it is all true. He then shook his head and said really sad, but why couldn’t I
have known about this a few years ago? Why did I have to wait until now. We
talked about our Heavenly Father and his timing and plan for us.
It’s programs like this that make
it all worth it. All of the tracting and rejection and hard times. It makes up
for it 100 times in the small moments like this.
I know that this is my “dying
transfer”. It still hasn’t hit me that it is yet. I don’t want it to hit me
either! I still feel like I just got here and I still have a lot to do out
here! I still have two months left and I am so excited to see what’s waiting
for me! An Elder told me that I need to get ready, to know that the train is
going to stop and that I need to get ready to jump off, buttttt I’m not ready
yet, I’m just waiting for someone to push me off when I need to. I have NO idea
where the last 17 months went.
I love Tatabánya with all of my
heart and it’s so hard to say goodbye to these people. They really have become
my family out here and we have grown so much together. I know we will keep our
relationships and talk still, but it’s going to be different and I’m going to
miss them so much! I know that there will be new people waiting in Békéscsaba
and I can’t wait to meet them!
