Hey family,

Sounds like you all had a crazy week again!
MOM IM GOING TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.  YOU ARE WORKING TO MUCH!  Sister Tryon even mentioned something about it in a letter to me. Tell Nathan and Dan to make more time to spend with you guys!      

Did you get my gifts yet? This week was awesome!  We worked so hard and met some great new people. This city is very pretty.  The branch here is so strong.  I love it!  There is a wonderful spirit here. The hungarian is going great. I’ve even been thinking in hungarian.  Sometimes it’s weird, it happened to me this morning when I woke up lol.

Here is a funny story for you all:  me and my companion tracted into an    ex-nazi (we still think he is one). He was way weird and said some weird things too, like Jesus was a Nazi and he hated Jews and lots of weird stuff.

This week was very long but great. Today we are going to go hiking in the hills around the city. It’s a very beautiful day today. This week we are going to Budapest for interviews; we are doing that on Friday. Other than that it looks just like another week of work. I don’t really know what else to talk about.

I love you all. I hope you all have a nice week. Thank you for your prayers.

Hello family,

Sounds like a crazy week for you all. I spoke with Daniel about my bike, I said no lol.  Sorry to hear that everyone is gone out of the house. Looks like you both are free now to follow your dreams of traveling the world in the airstream but don’t be gone too long I’ll be home before you know it and then I will live with you both forever lol jk.  It’s weird, everyone hear always asks me what I’m going to do when I get home, what kind of school and stuff will I do, honestly IDK!!!!! Is that bad? lol  I have a few ideas but I’m not sure.

Anyways, this has been the craziest week of my mission. It started on Tuesday morning, when I was on splits with some other elders. I got a call from president.  He said elder smith pack your bags, I need you somewhere else, I’m transferring you to veszprém.  I was in shock lol, then he said I need you to be here tomorrow morning.  Now this was bad because I was on splits that day, because my comps were going to a different city for a meeting. I was going to be on splits with Zoli all day so I couldn't just go home and pack my bags.  I had to wait till around 8 at night to start packing but that’s not all I had to do, I had to fill out some paper work for the other elders, to help them out, because they still hadn’t met with me and all of my old comps and investigators.  So I was up late packing.  Anyways, I had to go to Budapest by myself, which was weird because I haven’t been alone that long for over a year lol.   So anyways, my new companion is Elder Németh. He is Hungarian and yes he speaks no English.  I know, I know, I’m really lucky.  Yes, you could say that, other than the fact that he is really lazy and doesn’t really want to work or walk faster than one mile an hour, but honestly, I think he is really fun. Sure it’s no good, but he is just like a stubborn kid, I love him, he's great. The new city I’m in is amazing.  I love it so much. It’s a hard place for work but the branch… wow they are awesome!! I also forgot to say that I’m also district leader now and senior companion.  Elder Németh is older then me in the mission, but like I said, he is different. I’ll try and send some pictures of my new area, I’ll put them on facebook. 

Love ya all, Elder Smith
