The Week that Was

Heather: This past week was great! We had a lovely lunch with all the Elders at Solymosi, Marika's bright apartment. She made a finom gulyas that we all really loved. We loved her cheerful eating nook! Afterward we talked about the blessings of the Gospel and her beloved Peter. It has been just over 2 months since his death and she misses him so much. Marika teaches in Primary now and the kids just love her.
Friday we had a great group of kids and Gabi taught us how to make friendship bracelets. She was the only member of the Church there besides the Elders and was very busy trying to show everyone how to tie the knots for the bracelets. Not all of us caught on! We had a good time together and are grateful for the support we receive from Gabi and the Elders. We learned today that we will be loosing two of our Elders in the latest transfers. Elder May will be going to Dunaújváros and Elder Mullen is assigned as Zone Leader in Budapest.
On Sunday my star piano student, Veronika, was called and sustained as the Branch pianist. Veronica is very talented, she can play a piece of music by heart in with just a few tries. She will be a great asset to the Branch  as she learns to play all the hymns. I hope she will then teach others to play. We received a beautiful keyboard from the Harmon Foundation just before Christmas that will  be a big help to her learning to play. Our next challenge is to get her baptized!   Posted by Picasa
