Week 53 - 17th Week in Sopron

Well hello there to everyone!

No stories about dragons this week unfortunately. It was a pretty good week, though a lot less eventful. Well not completley true, Tuesday and Wednesday we were in Györ on splits! I love that city, it's beautiful and it's a happening place for the church right now. Our Zone Leaders are Elders Heilein and Spedding. I got to spend the splits with Spedding. He is such a great guy and I was able to learn a lot form him as I was out with him. He is really good at paying attention to the spirit and always making sure we are following the Lord's direction in his work.

We had planned to have soup that night as well but the soup the zone leaders had made for us went bad! So we decided to call in and order pizza! I was pretty excited for the pizza as I was hungry. So we waited, and waited and waited... about 10 we realized they probably weren't bringing us our pizza. So we didn't have dinner. XD But that's okay I need to loose a little weight I guess.

The rest of the transfer went well though, we were able to have breakfast!!! And we treated ourselves to an extra special lunch, Gyoros! They are so good here! Wish we had them like this in America.

Friday we met with a family that has been coming to English class regularly. The program was great! We were worried it might be a bit much so we were going to do an easy restoration lesson, but they had so many questions and were so involved in the conversation that we taught the full thing, and had to stop ourselves from teaching the plan of salvation as well! It was super cool.

Saturday we had a family history workshop! It went super well too! We had lots of people show up and we were able to even do a little family history ourselves. I finally got connected into my grandma's line thanks to some help from Elder and Sister Broadhead who ran the workshop.

But things are going great here! The Jensens are leaving Sopron at the transfer and that will be hard for the Branch but I finally feel like things have stablized here in Sopron and even though we are loosing the seniors, all will be okay.

Transfers are next week! it will be crazy to see what happens. I may be leaving Sopron myself as I have been here for 4 months! But we will see what happens. Some of the missionaries I have served with are going home next week also. Elder Weaver, Elder Depallens, Elder Spedding, and my hometown friend, Jordan Flake. Hungary will miss these missionaries!
