So this week was pretty much just full of straight craziness, which can only be described by my companion's and my new most commonly said phrase "Ilyen az életünk" (such is our life).
Monday started pretty chill with our normal emailing, getting lunch as a district, then just chilling together at the branch house playing some table tennis and card games. Then usually on Monday nights we would go to our American less active, Greg, but we couldn't meet with him this week so we went out tracting. First before we even started tracting a guy stopped us and told us that he met with the missionaries 11 years ago in a city called Nyíregyháza and that the whole time he was with them he just felt peace and felt like it was coming straight from Jesus Christ, super cool dude, hopefully we can meet with him. Then we just got a whole bunch of really funny, classic rejections. Then we met a woman who said that she didn't believe in God because lots of people have died in her family recently, so we bore testimony to her and the spirit was just crazy strong. Then later on a guy yelled at us from across the street telling us that there was no one home at the house we were csengő-ing before telling us to come talk to him. He was super cool, he owned a motorsport company that competes internationally and his wife was a professional dancer who had won international competitions. They talked to us for ages then said we could come back any time we wanted and we could work out at their gym, then they showed us their dance studio and gym, but then the guy showed us his garage, where he keeps his SIX racecars, it was absolutely insane, he builds them all from scratch in his garage as well.
Tuesday, super cool day, we had zone training in Buda, but other than that nothing too crazy happened.
Wednesday, we had a teaching with our investigator Dávid and we were able to put him on Baptismal date, which he was super excited about. So he will be getting baptised on August 27th, which is after transfers so I probably won't be here to see it, but I'm just super excited that he's finally ready to be baptised because he's wanted this for a while. Our phone also broke on wednesday so we had to get a new one which is really inconvenient.
Thursday I was splits with my zone leader Elder Beaumont and it was mostly pretty normal, except when we were coming back on the bus, Elder Beaumont got up for a Néni and her grandkids, so she started asking about who we were and why we were here, then after we told her, she asked us to tell her granddaughters stories of Jesus right there on the bus.
Friday we had district meeting, which is always fun, but I made the whole district try the vegemite that I found in the American store. The common consensus was that it was the worst thing that they've ever eaten. My companion even did straight vegemite off of a knife, he almost threw up.
Saturday we went out to Vác again, but our program cancelled on us so we just tracted and looked up a bunch of less actives for a while, nothing too exciting.
Yesterday was going pretty normal until basically everything just went crazy within 15 minutes. So we were finishing up our day with some tracting, when the last door that we're going to knock on turns out to be a probably around 70 year old gay man, who told us that I apparently look more Mormon than my companion (whatever that means) and then he started hitting on my companion, really strange, got out of there pretty quick. Then we get a call from President Szabadkai, telling us that we're going to be a bunch of this next week in a trio with my good friend Elder Murphy from the MTC.
Then just when we thought it couldn't get any crazier, we were talking to President Szabadkai this morning to work out the deal with picking up our new companion when he told us that tomorrow we will actually be in a quad, so that'll be very interesting and I'm sure the next few days will be super crazy.
I'm pretty sure I forgot a bunch of stuff that happened this week, but those are some of the crazier ones.
Have a great week!
Szép napot kívánok!
P.S. Sorry no pics this week :(
