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.
So life in Buda is great! I love love
love my new companion. Her name is Adley Fowers. She is from Missouri
and has 10 siblings!! real life. 4 of them are adopted so don't like
faint or anything. She also went to BYU. We are working so well
together so we had a rockin week last week, found a tons of new
investigators, and this week is looking pretty good so far too.
My biggest fear about coming to Buda
was that it isn't a little branch but a ward so how would I get to
know the members. But Sister Fowers and hi made goals and plans and
we rocked church yesterday! it was the coolest ever. There is a
family that always invites the assisstants over for dinner on
mondays, but they uninvited them to invited us! (ok so maybe the dad
would not be home so the assisstants couldn't go anyway...but that is
just a small detail) It was great to see the members we asked to
befriend people do so. It was cool.
President suggested we start doing
these things called "pop-ins" where were from 8-9 we stop
by members homes (but don't go in) tell them about an investigator
that lives close by and ask them to pray for them and befriend them
if they come to church. so we tried 2 last week and asked them both
to pray for the same investigator and in our next program with her
she goes "can I be baptized next Friday?" Sister
Fowers looks at me and goes I've never baptized someone on my
mission. is it possible. I've never had someone get baptized without
it before being announced in church (that is just the way they do it
in Hungary) but we talked to the ward mission leader and said if she
passes the interview (which is tuesday) sure. So here we go. We are
hoping to have a baptism this week, which would be a great way to
start the transfer. This is the first time I have gone into a new
area and there has been work so it is super cool!
ok well love you all! Sister
Sister Fowers decided I would look good
with bangs. I decided why not? I need some change. So she cut my hair
last night. I kinda like it. What do you think? We look good
the senior couple (the Jensens) from Nyíregyháza
two of the girls from the branch came
to the train station wednesday morning to say bye. they were in
skirts because they were going to go do visiting teaching later. how
tender right? I love them both so much!
