Paprikás Csirke


Last week went by pretty fast. Getting transferred to Békéscsaba was a long move—and I miss Sopron already—but the people here are incredible too!

I have some great news! I successfully made Paprikás Csirke from scratch on Wednesday and it was delicious!! Whoa! That’s the first time I have made something from scratch and made it taste good! It lasted for about four or five meals! So tasty.

And one of the coolest things about Békéscsaba is that we have bikes! Sweet! I love riding bikes! It is so much better than walking everywhere! Mine looks pretty lame and it doesn’t have any suspension, but it moves! So many people in this city ride bikes, bikes pretty much dominate the roads. OK, its not that intense, but I haven’t seen this many people on bikes in any other part of the country. And it snowed on Sunday! The snow didn’t stick, but it was ridiculously fun trying to lick snowflakes from the air while riding a bike!

I have a kind of embarrassing story to share. On Sunday as my companion and I were about to go to church, the handle on our apartment door broke from the outside locking us inside! The door was unlocked, but the inside handle didn’t have the part that turns the lock, so it just spun in circles and did nothing! We called the sisters—our district consists of my companion and me and two sisters, who are wonderful—and they came and rescued us. Haha. We all thought it was pretty funny.

On Sunday I gave a talk in church and it went well. The branch here is way small. Because there is only one active Priesthood holder in the branch—he just got baptized a few months ago and is awesome—my companion is the Branch President and I am the clerk. I’ll likely be assigned as First Counselor as well.

Well, we are in a hurry, so I have to leave now. Thanks for the support and love! Christmas is near! Whoohoo! Remember what Christmas is really about! Christ and how he is our Savior and Redeemer! Have a great week everybody!
