Transfer 10, Week 4
well, not too much going on over here....pretty average week in the office............but, i do have a super cool story. I think some of you might know Hédi, (she is a new convert who lives in Érd and usually comes to family night and gofri est). The branch mission leader in Érd challenged her to share the gospel with somebody, and she said that she would try (she said that she's always scared to talk to people about the gospel, but she is soooo in tune with the Spirit and is able to follow it so obediently...) she was riding the bus home, and a girl got on carrying a book with a picture of Jesus on it...so, after waiting a while to work up the courage, Hédi started talking to her about religion and stuff...turns out the girl is religious, and they had a little discussion about the church. Then, when she was at school, she was talking with a girl who had a crucifix or something on a necklace, so Hédi asked about it and was then able to answer some questions the girl had about our church. and then, they were practicing a dialog thing in her german class, and the girl she was practicing with had a scripture reference written on her notebook, so they started talking about faith and stuff, and the girl even asked for a Book of Mormon! It was so amazing hearing her relate these experiences, it made me so happy to see somebody who I helped become acquainted with the gospel now turn around and share that knowledge with others. The amazing thing with the latter two girls is that Hédi has known them for a while now, and before this hadn't even considered that they might be religious or even interested. It was so inspiring to hear these experiences from her, I am so proud of her! She even said that she really wants to serve a mini-mission...she said that she has all of July and August off from school, so i told her i'd try and figure out when she could go. I am so excited for her, she was so prepared to recieve the gospel, and now she has truly seen the benefit it has been in her life, and she is willing to do anything that Heavenly Father asks her to.
so, that was my little miracle for the week. it was soooooo awesome to hear her relate those experiences, the whole time, i was just thinking about how excited i was for her! she always talks about how she hopes that she can be like Elder Saunders or Elder Anderson or myself, but actually, i'm just grateful for her example to me. i learn so much from her, i am so grateful that i got to know her.
that's about it for this week. oh, hopefully the pictures worked, it's the deathstar and a member who dressed up as obi-wan for farsang.
i hope you all have a great week! talk to you next week!
