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.
An investigator that Sister Moffatt and
I tracted into came to church this week. It was great. He is more
reserved, and we brought a different member with us to one of his
programs with us this week. It was a recent convert so as part of the
prep I asked him to offer to walk to church with the investigator.
Sometime as a missionary we are really just friends makers, but it is
fine. It ended up working out perfectly.
This week was also hard. We decided to
take a little break with one of our bap dates. She came back from
Easter and had decided that she didn't want to be baptized any more
because she doesn't think that is matter what church you belong too.
That was hard. I totally teared up as I was baring my testimony of
the restoration. She had just told us she was pregnant with her third
child which she had been prayer for for months. She bore her
testimony of how much sister missionaries have helped her because she
has met with several. And I know that she will be baptized someday
but now it just not her time. I suggested maybe we take a break. I
didn't want to and we weren't planning on it because her baptism was
supposed to be this weekend but during the program suggesting a break
kept popping up in my mind. And she agreed and said that she was
going to tell the Jehova's witness that she wants a break too. I just
sat there thinking why do I feel like you have been cheating on me
this whole time! oh well. It is just hard when we know that the
gospel is the best thing for her and her family. agency sometimes is
We found some really cool people this
week. One was a guy that we streeted on Easter, and he is an older
man. He didn't want to meet in the branch house so we met with him on
a bench twice last week. It went super well. I just get really
distracted on the bench. I told him that so hopefully he will be cool
with going to the branch house the next time. He was the most amazing
prayer. Who know that if you say "say the closing prayer"
in command form (which isn't rude in Hungarian) they are more likely
to say it than if you say "would you like to try and say the
Remember the investigator who got
baptized in Szombathely, and I am going to name my first daughter
after her because of the deal I made with God. She is rockin life out
in Szombathely. For her birthday she asked all of her friends and
family to come to church and so 34 people came to church that week of
her family and friends! She just wants everyone to have the
oppertunity to hear about the gospel. She is such an amazing example
to me of member missionary work. To her it isn't missionary work, it
is just sharing the best thing in your life with everyone.
