interesting week

Monday, March 31, 2014

Dear Family,

So this week has been filled with interesting ones. 

Starting off, we went and visited this women we had found tracting a couple of weeks ago. She completely opens up to me at the beginning of the visist. Tells me that she took a pregnancy test and it was positive. It would be her 6th child, which is totally unheard of in Hungary, having that many kids. And she said she is going to the doctors in a couple of days to have is confirmed. She is praying that is it a mistake and that she got a disease and her hormones are out of wack or something. And then proceeds to tell me that if she is really pregnant she is going to get an abortion. She is married but said that they can't handle the financial stress another child. She didn't understand how it happend with breastfeeding her youngest. And yes went into when her husband had last had sex. It was interesting. I just had no idea what to say. I had just met her. We introduced the BoM to her and told her to pray about the baby thing, read, and ask God what she should do. I said abortion wasn't good but literally had no idea what else I good say. Afterward I felt bad that I wasn't more like, "Don't do it!"

We are now helping another investigator quite smoking. He is on bap date scheduled to happen in 2 weeks, but I am thinking we will have to push it back a couple weeks because he went MIA for 2 weeks. But we found him again (he doesn't have a phone and we would always meet with him in the branch house so that proved to be a little stressful but with lots of pray and listening to the spirit we found him again). He is really committed to this. Came to church and stayed for all 3 hours. We had a great program with him afterwards and one of the other young single adults in the branch. When he gets baptized he will be the only younger guy in the branch, which would have to be hard. Also great for him because their are like 5 young single adult girls in their early 20s. haha. 

Sister Feil extended another bap challenge this weekend, and our investigator accepted. She has meet with sister missionaries for a while but no one could committed her to baptism because she doesn't want to do it with out her family. So we had a great lessson talking about the positive influence women have on their families and read 1 Nephi 7 where the daughters of Ismael soften Laman and Lemuels hearts when they wanted to kill Nephi. And she said that she will be baptized in a month if her husband gives his blessing and support. We promised that by her good example her family would follow later. The day before we met her husband and 2 sons on the street, which was a small miracle because I had never met the husband and older son before. So hopeful that is a good sign. 

We went to Tokaj this moring with the missionaries from Debrecen in our district and went hiking. It was way fun but I am already sore! It was surprisingly step. We went whipping at the top and I was horrible at it. oh well! 

Have a great week!
