Holy cow! Things are so busy! Sorry for last week that I didn't send out a blog email. I was a little short on time, but everything is good here in Székesfehérvár! My companion and I are definitely staying busy with our investigators, while still getting in some finding.We had a baptism this last week, it was one of the Elder's investigators, and he's probably one of the sweetest guys I've met here in Hungary. I kind of want to put him in my pocket and take him everywhere I go. It was really neat to go his baptism and feel the special spirit there.
Christmas is getting closer and closer and you can definitely tell by walking down in the belváros here in Székes. There are Christmas booths everywhere selling Christmas gifts, food, and Hungarian's personal favorite: hot wine. Yeah, that's popular here. The other day we were walking in the belváros and there are stages set up everywhere, on one of the stages there were Hungarian fok dancers. That was really cool to watch, because I had never seen them, but they were super good and most of them...actually all of them... were all younger than me. They definitely had a really good skill.
Saturday was a Hungarian Holiday. They call it Saint Nicholas (Mikulás) Day. It's essentially just a gift-giving day. The night before, children put their boots in the windowsill and if they were a good they wake up with chocolate and other treats in their boots. If they were bad, they get sticks and onions in their boots. Funny, huh? Saturday night we had a Mikulás Büli as a branch. Elder Whiting was Mikulás and the other missionaries were well...I'll just let you look at the pictures and you can see for yourself (: Anyways it was a pretty good week.
Love you all,Whitaker Nővér
