Quick email for today, because we don't have much time left today! We're doing good here in Szombathely,and I'm starting to get a little bit used to the new city! It's still strange for me to be somewhere other than Budapest, and I honestly went through some big city withdrawals up until now, but Szombathely is growing on me!
The members here are so nice, and the branch was really welcoming! Elder Heaps and I were even invited to go to primary so that we can help with the piano playing there, which was a blast. On Saturday evening, the branch president and a few of the other families from here in Szombathely invited us over to have a Szalonna cookout--basically where they roast pieces of fat over a fire and drip the grease onto bread with onions and peppers on top. Definitely not the healthiest of things to eat, but for the Hungarians, it's a summertime favorite.
We've got a busy week ahead of us, since we're going back up to Budapest on Wednesday for a zone conference, and then we're following that up on Friday with a trip to Tatabánya for splits with the elders there. The trains are pretty long and the travel can be exhausting, but the trips are for sure worth it!
Excited to meet more new people here and get to know the city a little better. These are some of the pictures from our adventures so far this week!
Love y'all lots and I'll talk to ya more next time! :)
