BÚÉK! (Aka Boldog Új Évet Kívánok!) (Aka Happy New Year!)Wow so I can't give every detail from the last two weeks, but here's a taste of the miracles. I call it the Gift Exchange.
Well Sister Westover and I had been tracting A LOT. And although the 1 person who accepts the gospel is worth it, sometimes it takes a good 9,000 rejections before you find them. We were getting close to rejection 8 thousand something probably and it was starting to get a little rote and lets face it, exhausting. So one day we prayed to find a little more fun in the work. While we were out, I thought up a game. Ive temporarily named it Rejection.
So the next day we tried it. We picked a starting point and played. It took us ALL over. We got one let in and taught a nice older gentlemen and felt pretty good. Then we kept playing and got a "nem ertem" so off we went on the tram down to the next stop. The first people let us in. We walked in looked to the right and there was a man with a silver wig and a funky hat eating a raw pepper. The man who let us let us know that they were about to have a pre-new years eve party. We looked at each other, what had we gotten into? Well they invited us in and we taught a short lesson to them and 2 girls who were also there. Turns out theyre all in a program together- all trying to change and fix their lives. The lesson went well, but we only had one Book of Mormon with us, so the guy who let us in asked us to come back and bring him one.
So we did the next day, but since he was home alone, we couldn't go in. We ended up instead going to the park and walking around the pond and talking to him about the gospel and his desire to be officially changed from his previous self. He asked us what he needed to do and we told him to start, he can pray and read the Book of Mormon and come to church and meet with us. He said "well I'm already starting to do that, I meant what is the NEXT step?" So we talked about the covenant of Baptism.
