 These are some pictures we took before we actually left Pápa. The one is me, Elder Rae, a member named Évike, and some sort of silly balloon.
 The other one is of one of our investigators that was really great. Her name is Éva and she has a monster dog named Zulu. I got a picture of him too. Hes so cute
 This is a couple that moved back to Pápa recently. They are super cool and we are eternally grateful they decided to stay in Pápa, because we certainly needed them in the branch.

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.
 This is another really communistic thing. Its a gigantic statue that is supposed to represent the fall of capitalism and the rise of communism. It sits on top of this hill that sort of looks out over Szombathely and everyone hates it, but its too expensive to tear down. Kinda cool.

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.

This is me  and Elder Rae at the train station saying goodbye. I miss that guy. He was a good companion.
Yeah, Szombathely.
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.
When Im a big time band and need a place to shoot my music videos, this is definitely the place Ill be doing it

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?
 This is the really big Catholic church here in Szombathely. Kinda cool.
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.
Anderson Elder.
