Ammon, Mon, 28 Feb 2011

We had a good week, everything went by fast again. We only have 2 weeks left in this transfer. So we are trying to end strong. Five of our investigators are progressing again this week, it’s not big progress but they are improving weekly. One of our biggest problems here is getting our investigators to church for some reason they are just always full of reasons why they can’t come. We promise them the blessing of a better week and other great things, but they DON’T COME? We were blessed with 3 new investigators this week, so the work is always getting better and bigger.
 The youth are very strong here in veszprém, the strongest I have ever seen in Hungary and there are lots of youth. So I called president and asked him about getting a real institute building here. He thinks it’s a great idea. For that to happen there needs to be a least 3 people every week at institute and family night.  Right now we are at 9 every week and that needs to happen for 3 months, and we have met all of those things. There’s just a little problem, prez B is not in charge of this branch like I thought.  We are in the only stake in Hungary so Pres. is going to talk with the stake prez and try to get things rolling with that. If everything works out, veszprém will have the first institute program and building and all that good stuff in Hungray. We are so excited.
As for teaching programs and out time limits we have special rules here in Hungary. 1) If it’s a dinner program, we can stay for an hour and a half.. 2) Any other programs can be up to an hour long. 3) A lot of our investigators here in Hungary come from our english class, so english students/investigators are also an hour and a half.
We met with a couple for the first time this last week, they are 2 of the 3 new investigators, János and Mária. They are a very nice couple and have been taught horrible things (that I won’t talk about because there are so many). We asked János  why they are meeting with us and what they expect from us meeting. He then told us his life story and also a crazy dream. Janos,” I was in a big open area and there was a person in the distance, he walk up to me." János said it was satan." He told me to follow him, I told him no and then I woke up". He said he started praying for help and then we showed up and he knows that we were sent here as an answer to his prayers. Cool story, I know.
Missions are AWESOME. I hope everyone has a great week. I love you and miss you all.  I’m doing great, everything feels good. :)
