Monday we decided to have a little bit more of a relaxing day, so we just headed over to a big mall in Pest and spent the day looking around in there. After that I realised that Elder Allred had never seen the wonderful train stations of Budapest, and they happen to both be on our way home, so we took a visit to those as well as eating in one of the fanciest McDonalds in the whole world.
Tuesday saw some crazy miracles as 4 people that I called all wanted to meet in this upcoming week, so we'll see how all those go. Then we had two lessons set up that we were taking our ward mission leader to, but both cancelled on us, so we took him tracting with us. As we were ringing this building a man told us that we shouldn't be doing this and that we had to get permission from the man in the office. So we went into the office and after talking with this man for about 20 minutes we weren't able to tract the building but we did share a little about the restoration with him, he accepted a copy of the Book of Mormon and told us that any time we have cards or fliers he would personally deliver them to the 300 apartments that he was in charge of. Then we retried one of the people that we were going to meet with and they let us in, so we taught a lesson that night too.
Wednesday we did a bit of tracting across the road from some JW's who were also tracting, which was fun, we then had two different women threaten to call the cops on us, not so fun. Then we were able to meet with a cool less active family and we shared the restoration with their non-member daughter. We then had to do some emergency splits with the Assistants, so I got to teach another lesson and then we went tracting and happend to get a let in, which basically never happens, so I can basically just attribute that to being with one of the Assistants.
Thursday we had our zone training where we talked about commitments and how to more effectively use our time according to the missionary schedule, it was way good and got us pretty pumped to go work. We also got told about the new Christmas initiative which we're all pumped about too.
Friday was our district meeting which is always a great time, but we were also able to meet a lot of cool people while out finding that day which is always good.
Saturday was pretty much all finding, so we were out talking to people on the streets and knocking on doors, you know classic missionary life.
Sunday's are always fun, we basically just had church and then went out tracting. While we were tracting we had two more people tell us to leave but I managed to talk one down into letting us stay but the second after a little bit of "conversation" responds to my question of "How do you know that no one here is interested in this?" with the classic line of "Because they're all Hungarian!" and then slamming the door. I really do love this country.
Hope you all have an amazing week!
Sok sikert mindenhez!
Elder Allred and I out on the search
