This guys name is Jóci. He is the first counselor in the branch presidency and we got to spend a lot of time with him. He was reactivated relatively recently and hes super great. He thought it was super cool that I played guitar so thats why thats in the picture. Hes a bit of a rocker himself. He told us a story about when he pretended to be a roady and got into a bunch of big time concerts for free in Germany someplace. Hes a smart guy.
So this is Szombathely. Im taking this picture from inside one of those ten story appartment buildings you can see off in the distance. They are super communistic, but the people tried to liven em up a bit with colors. It only kinda worked.
There used to be two companionships of elders and one of sisters here in Szombathely, but right as I came, they closed down the other elder companionship, so its just the four of us now. However, the other elders' old apartment was super cool and you could go out on the roof and see a super cool view of Szombathely. That's what these pictures are of.
This is me burning my tie and making our apartment smell like poop. Turns out, silk doesnt burn that well. But that poorly burnt silk represents six months hard work.
I dunno if Ive said this before, but Elder de Vries has a guitar, which is just perfect, because I know someone who plays the guitar. Last P-Day I bought a harmonica from a music store and then we made a holder for it out of a coat hanger. Guess what Im singing in this super cool shot on the Hungarian rooftops?
Uh, this is a water tower. Its not really that important.
This is the Savaria Hotel. Aparently its haunted.
Good news, I can grow a mustache. This is Elder de Vries and I at distract meeting
Here's some more good music video places. There's some really cool grafitti in this town.
But I promise we really do do missionary work too. Heres a good shot of us trying to talk to everyone. Sometimes its harder than others.
Well, thats pretty much all Ive got for pictures. Szombathely is great. We're trying to work hard and be happy and things like that. Love you all.
