A long week...
The intro is a lot more foreboding than needs be but it has been a long week. The work is going well for sure. We have been really busy with programs all week, I am so tired but also really happy. In the next 2 months we will have 6 baptisms in Szeged! I am super pumped. Nov 28th Gabor, an 18 year old young man, will get baptized. He has been investigating for over a year now. Then the week after on Dec 5th there will be 3, Kriszti and Ildiko from our companionship and Erika from the other elders companionship. The next week will be a young girl Klaudia turning 8 that the sisters teach. Then the week after will be Niki an investigator of mine that we trusted to the other elders at the beginning of the transfer! things are going so good!
But I will be honest I am tired. My companion and I are doing good though we got into our first real disagreement this week which we were able to work out thankfully. Things are good here. I love Szeged it's my favorite city right next to Tatabanya. The people here are great and do so much to help. I am sad I am probably not going to be here for Christmas though but I can't wait to skype home with my family. But I just found out last night that I missed a call from home because my phone was off!!! (That's what you get for not charging your phone...) My sister just got home from the hospital last night and they wanted to call me to let me in on the home welcoming party but oh well I guess. Luckily Christmas is right around the corner. I am just glad that my sister is home, WAY TO GO NAOMI!!!
I miss you all back at home and can't wait to see you all soon. Jon you gotta write me some time and let me know how your doing and whether or not you have a girlfriend yet? Keep me updated on what's going on back at home and I also want to see Naomi's new room that got a make over too!
Love you all, have a great week!
