Two sisters are going on missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Robin is serving in the Budapest, Hungary mission (started May 2013). Katie reports to the Mexico MTC February 5, 2013, then heads to the New York New York North Mission. This blog will chronicle their letters home and pictures they take.
It has been a good week. Since I was
the only sister training president had me go from the train station
to the mission home with some elders and so those like 25 minutes
without another sister were so weird! My new missionary's name is
Sister Feil is she from West Valley Utah. She comes from a big
family. Training is different than I thought it would be, but it is
good. Exhausted because I really am doing like everything right now.
There is no just like turn to her and she can speak because she has
no idea what is going on in lessons and things like that. She is
doing well though. Trying her best and speaking more and more every
day. The branch members think she is adorable because she just smiles
and laughs even though she has no idea what is going on. One member
said she wants to "eat her" which I am assuming mean like
"eat her up" in English. So funny. She extended her first
baptismal challenge and our investigator accepted so what a great way
to start off her mission! It is our 19 year old Ukrainian
investigator. She loves family night and told us right away that she
is coming every week from know on. I hope that is will be that easy
to get her to come to church too!
We went to Miskolc for district
conference this week. I kind of knew all week that we wouldn't have
any investigators that would be willing to make the trip because of
money and time. And so that was a first on my mission no
investigators in church. I felt so purposeless and pointless all day.
But there was an area seventy there and he was amazing! It was so
spiritual. At one point he had all the missionaries standing up
front. It was so powerful to look out into the congregation and to
see all of these Hungarians who are the pioneers of the church here.
There were so many tears in the audience. It was a really spiritual
experience and humbling.
Well I hope everyone is doing
Love you all! Sister Grigg
