Whoooooooosh! Another week in April gone!
Hope you're all doing well---enjoying the freedom of another schoolyear done/almost done--I hope you know how surreal it is that I'm not there finishing it with you all, it's kind of the first time within real memory that I'm not, so it for sure feels weird.
Speaking of weird, the weeks just keep getting stranger here in Szombathely, thankfully we have a Skype coming up in May because I feel like my mode to communicate to you over email what my life is like out here is far from adequate. I guess I feel like about 60% of the time I'm a normal missionary going about my normal missionary life, 30% of the time I'm noticing huge cultural differences/language barriers/things that are quite different from what I expected or have experienced, and then the other 10% of the time I'm in a state of utter shock by the weirdness of a situation that I never-ever-ever would have thought I would ever-ever-ever be in. Like, in my whole life.
I guess that's kind of the cool thing about being a missionary: it opens doors and people that never would be open to you if you were just a regular human being. Sometimes you stumble upon a village-thing in the middle of the city where everyone is dressed in ancient Roman garb holding signs and chanting to the beat of a drum. Sometimes spring comes and the heat comes with it and people answer their doors with little or, you know, no clothes on--it happens haha.
Our investigators are doing pretty good, our awesome actress investigator invited us to watch and support her in a performance next month and hooked us up with tickets and everything AND we got permission from President so we're pumped. I'm trying really, really hard to find a family to teach right now, because I feel like I haven't really had a solid one my whole mission (#easterneurope) and it's proving to be a pretty tall order (prayers requested, pretty please :).
We had the Virág Festival this week---which was really cute and quaint and very Hungarian and had really delicious food. We also had a Relief Society activity and I learned how to make jewelry and also my kézi munka (Hungarian embroidery) skills are much improving, so Sister Dohm says I'm about to reach housewife status #illtakeitasacompliment haha.
I feel like I have a lot of experiences to share---but I don't even really know where to start! Just know Hungary has become breath-takingly beautiful, there is plentiful fagyi, people are out and about and I'm determined to find some awesome people this week and that you all should write me!
Looooooooooooooovvvvvveee yyoooouuuu, don't forget your favorite sister mish!
