Transfer 15, Week 3 Sep 12, 2011

Hi everyone!
Ok, so, not too much happening this past week.....pretty much the usual stuff, nothing out of the ordinary......We did have district conference on Sunday, which was super awesome. Members and missionaries came from Eger, Nyíregyháza and Debrecen to Miskolc, and President and Sister Baughman were there as well. It was so cool to see everyone and to get to talk to members I'd gotten to know from splits from last year - most of them remembered me, so that was pretty cool. The conference was so awesome, the talks were really inspiring. They started with some testimonies from the youth, one of them had just gotten baptized on Saturday, that was really neat. Another was baptized not too long ago, he had a super awesome testimony to share. After them, a recently returned missionary from Nyíregyháza (he just got back from Romania) gave his testimony. He is so awesome, he is going to be such a blessing to that branch. The rest of the talks were all great as well, but those testimonies at the beginning really stuck out to me. After the conference, everyone had sandwiches and snacks, so we had a lot of time to talk to people. That was so much fun, I really enjoyed it. Then, the Nyíregyháza elders needed a ride to the train station, so I drove some over there, then a member drove the rest there (that was kind of an adventure, I had to direct them to the train station over the phone....kind of interesting...but, they made it :) Then, another elder had ridden with them, so he jumped over to my car and we drove back to the branch house just in time for him to join the rest of his group on their bus. Kind of a stressful afternoon, but way fun at the same time. Afterwards, we made some cookies, met with a member in Kazincbarcika, then with a family out in Polgár. It was way fun, a pretty long day, but totally awesome.
So, that was about it for last week....I'm not sure what all is going on this week, other than the basic stuff....Oh, Vass Nővér (a mini-missionary serving with Sister Johnson) will be going home on Saturday, so they'll be up in Budapest. We're excited for Sister Johnson's new companion, but we'll be sad to see Vass Nővér leave, she was a lot of fun and a really great missionary.
Alright, well, that was about all the news....I hope you all have a great week!
