Sports Proselyting


This week was pretty good. Our mission president wants us to keep track of how many hours we are spending trying to find people to teach and so we started to do that this week. My companion and I ended up with 16 ½ hours, which apparently was the highest in the mission. So that was kind of cool, but it was very long.

I don’t remember if I talked about this last week, but we recently started a Sport Nap (Sport Day)—we play soccer in the morning with anyone who wants to play. As long as there is one person who isn’t a member of the church we can do it. It has been a ton of fun! So far two angolóra (English Class) students have come. Last Saturday was pretty fun, except I tripped and totally ate it! I didn’t have enough time to get my hands in front of me and so I landed headfirst. hahaha. Like most of the soccer fields here, the place where we were playing was dirt so I got pretty scratched up! But it’s almost completely healed up already—so don’t worry Mom and Dad. lol. But it has been a lot of fun playing soccer and hopefully more people will come soon. It is a good opportunity for others to see that we are normal people and not crazy religious fanatics.

This week we met with a really cool lady, Erzsi, and her daughter, Tünde, in their beauty salon (after it was closed) and we had a really good lesson with them! They are super nice I really hope that we will be able to continue to meet with them!

We have been teaching an older lady who is a member, who hasn’t been coming to church in a long time. But she came yesterday and that was really cool to see.

Well, this transfer is about over and it will be interesting to see what happens next. I am almost completely sure that I’ll be staying here in Sopron for a while longer.

Thanks for everything! I love you all! I know that this gospel really is the gospel of Christ and I’m glad that I am able to teach others about it!
