May 17, 2016


This email's gonna be a litte bit quicker, because not too much really happened this week. We spent most of it indoors, with Elder Martineau elevating his ankle and staying off his feet. I think we've both got some pretty severe cases of cabin fever, but we're staying pretty sane with all things considered.

Our mission had a challenge for everyone to reread the Book of Mormon and highlight in pencil anytime there's a reference to "The Lord," "The Savior," "Redeemer," or any other name or title that refers to Jesus Christ. As part of the challenge, we were also encouraged to mark the text whenever he spoke towards the people, so that we'd be able to better recognize how much the book really does talk about His life and ministry. We spent quite a bit of our time reading this week, and we both finished the challenge on Thursday! That was probably one of the most exciting highlights of the week.

We also had splits on Friday with the elders from here in Pest. I was with Elder Jensen, and we went out and visited all of the people that their companionship and ours works with, and Elder McKim and Elder Martineau stayed indoors and did a little bit of streeting later on. Elder Jensen was awesome, and I had a really good time getting to serve with him for a little bit! Later on this week, we're planning on visiting √Črd for splits as well, and I'm really excited to go back and see all my friends from there when we're with Elder Winegar and Elder Knight!

I think that's all the news from Europe for this week. Hope you're all doing well, love you lots! :)

Took a few pictures this week of some of the old ten-stories built by the Soviets. They're pretty simple buildings that are sometimes falling apart and usually not taken care of very well, but these ones are in pretty good shape and are a lot less scary-looking than most!
