August 16, 2016


Quick email for today, and the pictures will just have to make up for the lack of length here. Transfers are tomorrow, and we just got the phone call for who's going where and what's going on--Elder Heaps is heading to Buda to serve as one of President Szabadkai's assistants, and I'll be staying in Szombathely for another nine weeks with another missionary named Elder Fitzgerald! I don't know him too well yet since we've always served in different zones up until now, but I've only heard good things about him so far and I'm very excited to get to work with him!

That's most of the main news for this week. The rest of the week consisted of regular missionary work, going to Kőszeg (a nearby village) last Monday, being in Budapest for part of Wednesday, and having the zone gather for a special "zone day" to finish off the transfer in Szombathely.

Everything else is going well, and hopefully I'll be able to tell you more next time. Love you lots and see ya soon!

Beautiful Catholic chapel in a village called Kőszeg
where we were working last week on Monday

Missionaries at the castle!

Always need a running picture, right? ;)

We went to Budapest as a district from Szombathely this week 
because President invited us up for a day to see some of the 
sights before Elder Anderson finishes his mission this week. 
We got some of the famous flower ice cream that 
they shape onto a cone in Pest!

While in Budapest, we ran into two of my favorite friends
from Hungary on the streets! Attila is one of the
fantastic members in Érd, and Tibor is from Pest!

Some of the members that I knew from Budapest were
in town in Szombathely for church on Sunday
