Well life with Elder Thomas is basically just a huge party. Well at least as close as you can get while being out doing missionary work all day. But life is good, it's a fun time.
Tuesday we farewelled our Duna district the same way that we started it, by going bowling. It was a pretty fun time, we didn't get particularly high scores or anything, but I got this one super cool spin bowl which made me feel like an athlete.
Wednesday was transfers up in Budapest, which first of all meant a tonne of carrying suitcases around in very inconvenient areas, but then I got to see basically everyone, so it makes up for it. My entire group that is still in Hungary was there, which was super fun, but the last of our sisters is going home now, so I guess that's life. We also got to call all the new companionships in our zone and welcome them all which was super fun. We have 5 companionships with brand new missionaries in them, so our zone is going to be pretty fantastic this transfer.
Thursday we had our first district meeting together. It was basically the normal get to know each other and stuff and then we ordered some more weird pizzas from the place that we got the american pizza the other week.
Friday we had to head over to Székesfehérvár to update Elder Thomas' government stuff, so that the government won't kick us out. It also gave us time to have a nice lunch there together before coming back to Duna. We also met with Eszter, our recent convert, that night, who is one of my favourite people, she's so hilarious.
Saturday was nothing too special, just did a lot of planning, tried to start fasting but we failed because the members love us too much and we met with our investigator family who are absolutely hilarious.
Sunday was really interesting, mainly because Sister Brantley from my MTC decided that she would come to church here in Duna with her family. It was super weird seeing the last of the sisters from my MTC group finishing up her mission, kind of just reminded me how quick time has flown by. We also were trying to do our normal sunday night phone calls last night with everyone and something knocked out the phone signal for basically all of the night, it made life slightly difficult. Never realised how hard it could be to be a missionary with no phone.
Anyway, that's it from me. Have a great week.

I told Elder Thomas he had to help me take more pictures, so hopefully I'll keep this up.
