So little time!!--August 11th

     So we have soooooo little time this day. We are going to see a Krishna run farm. So that should be fun :)
     Our week was a little slower and crazier than normal. We were in Budapest so that kind of threw things off, but our investigators are doing so well! They are just lighting all sorts of things on fire. "S" is doing SO CRAZILY GOOD. I DON'T EVEN KNOW. We taught the Word of Wisdom. She hasn't smoked since. We taught her tithing. She asked how to donate. We told her that it was an after baptism thing and she was like, "....why?" OMG HOW IS SHE SO COOL. Her interview for baptism should be next week and the baptism should be on the 23. THIS BOY IS EXCITED. It is so cool. So many miracles.
     Speaking of miracles. This week we continued to meet with "R". He has decided that the most important thing he can do is go around to the less active in the branch and bring them back into activity. He is single handedly bringing them back. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS. HOW IS THIS SO COOL? I don't even know. These people are such great examples to me.
     This week I also went on splits with Elder McKissick who I served around in my first transfer! It was pretty fun and we ran into a film being filmed! It was pretty crazy. Something WWII I think.
     Have you seen the newest Mormon message? PROBABLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING IN EXISTENCE. Please watch it. Please please please. It is seriously so cool. That is what we are trying to help people do. OMG I could talk about it for eons. God loves us so much. He guides us so gently. And the tiniest of things can absolutely change our entire lives. So cool. So amazing.
     This week we had a program with "R" and "K". "K" is probably one of the coolest people in the world, but he doesn't really want to get baptized. So we were sitting there and all of a sudden, we start talking about faith. We discussed it and talked about it and really went through it and I realized that we were kind of holding our own little "School of the Prophets". These men are so prepared and are so bright. We are just kind of here to train them a little. To guide them in the right way. It was super cool. Idk how to explain it right...but super cool!
     The last thing I want to talk about was a kind of random experience I had this week. Randomly, we decided to walk into one of the beautiful churches that are here in Szekesfehervar. We came in and a lady asked us if we wanted to take a tour, so we did. She took us around the entire church. It was massive. And it wasn't until the very end that she said anything or showed us anything about the Savior, Jesus Christ. The place was beautiful. The history was interesting. But I am so glad that from the first time we step into anything that this Church has to offer, we can learn about the Savior, feel of his love, learn of his life. Anything. It is crazy. I am so grateful to be a member of this church. So grateful to be here on a mission. I love you all so much. Have an amazing week. 
         Sok szeretettel,
             Neely Elder.
