Week 27: Conference, Cold, and Traveling

October 7, 2013
You know you're a missionary when you're out streeting home in the dark and its freezing cold, because it's not 9pm yet, and you get slightly excited because there's finally someone walking your way that you can talk to. And then they look up and see you and immediately turn and cross the street to the other side. Then repeat. haha
Another story for you... I tried pig tail today. The taste wasn't too bad actually, but the texture was interesting and you could tell that it was a tail, especially when you got down to the wiggly cartilidge (idk how to spell that! sorry!). yum! haha
Things are still going out here. It's pretty cold! It's crazy how within two months the weather went from above 40 degrees to below 0 on a couple days. Luckily the past couple days haven't been that cold. This month has/should be an interesting one, we're traveling around a ton, it seems. We have district meeting every other in Veszprem, but when it's not here, it's in Székesfehérvár, so we travel there. Plus, we were in Duna a couple weeks ago and again this week for Zone trainings. We'll also beup to Buda three or four times for interviews, stake conference, Zone Conference and we'll be up there on splits on Friday! Weird! Never done that before, splits in another city!
Also, we're teaching two families now! We started teachign both of them last week! Also weird for me, I haven't ever taught little kids out here yet, usually just YSA or adults. We're pretty excited about it! (:
You might be interested to know that we are teaching an NBA players wife's halfbrother...tonight again actually. It's a super crazy story and that's a really random fact, but I figured someone might appreciate it. haha (:
I Hope you all watched conference! It was so good, I thought! I was able to watch the first three sessions and the Priesthood session, all in English! (: My favorite talks, I think, were President Uchtdork's in the Priesthood session, Elder Scott's and Elder Holland's. I can't wait to read them. It's interesting how we get answers or strength in the weirdest ways through the Holy Ghost. Gotta love it!
Random, but if anyone has any cool English idioms or jokes or tongue twisters, please send them over here. I've been teachign the same class forever and I seem to ahve gone through most of my materials. Anything interesting would really be appreciated! (:

I don't have too much time to write a ton, but I love you all and I'll try to send a few pictures before i get off.
