Life is wonderful isn't it? I have had some pretty
rough trials here on my mission, but I just can't help but smile. The
Lord loves this people so much and I know He is making miracles among
There are going
to be some great changes this next week! It is transfers for us and
Bowen elder and I have discovered that we are staying here in Veszprém!
The twist is that our companionship is splitting. Bowen elder is
staying in the same apartment and received a new companion and myself,
along with Forsyth elder, are going to move into another apartment in
the belváros (downtown). It is going to be a transfer of changes and

Christmas time is coming! There are already Christmas lights hanging on the
plaza, houses and everywhere. There are trees and happiness. My
favorite part about this time is that when I try to speak to someone on
the street and get rejected, I can still yell "Boldog Karácsonyt!"
(Happy Christmas) It brings a smile to them all. I also just love
talking to people about the importance of Jesus Christ in our lives, so
Christmas is basically fantastic.
have some traditions here that I haven't experienced yet though.
Apparently they serve this dish that is similar to salty, pig fat
jello. I can't wait to try it, sounds tasty right?
As for the
best part of being here, the missionary work, it is going great. We are
giving it our all and being as bold as we can be. The Lord is truly

our companionship, we are giving out so many Book of Mormons and
although it feels like we are only planting seeds sometimes, we know the
Lord is just refining us to become His servants.
Merry Christmas everybody!
