Two Weeks in Kispest

     Things in Kispest are going well. To answer some of your questions, we actually play basketball with the other guys almost every morning, and with some of our investigators too, which is pretty good exercise, but I'm definitely not in the best shape of my life.
       It's kind of weird not having English class, but it's good. We have more time to focus on other thigns, so we will see how it works!  We have made some progress with some of the people we meet with, a few families, which is totally awesome, but other than that we are still just plugging along trying to get the people we are teaching moving along. We are actually teaching some really cool families right now! There is one mom with three little kids that we teach. Another is a mom and son (around 18) who are super cool. We go play bball with the son sometimes. He's really good and a super nice kid. Then there is another family that we teach, Mom and Dad and two kids who are progressing really well. They just came to church for the first time yesterday and really seem to be enjoying it! Other than that we have just a few single people that we meet with, all really cool!
Scripture study is going well. Just mostly trying to get through the Book of Mormon in Hungarian. Pretty easy to get distracted reading other stuff that's in English and more understandable, but I can just about understand most things now, which is pretty cool, and I'm hoping I can finish it some time in the near future. We have also been focusing on using scriptures in our lessons more effectively, so I've really been trying to focus more on what programs we have for the day and what they need, as opposed to just reading through. 
Yeah, Hungarian is definitely a lot more manageable now, but don't get me wrong, it is still incredibly hard... I still sometimes have no idea what people are saying. Actually, yesterday in church, there was a guy from New Hampshire! He said he knew Justin Millis really well and that he had been up to Ellsworth before and been to church. I can't remember his name though... sorry always bad at that.  I had to translate for him in sacrament meeting, and it is incredibly hard to do that, especially in church. 
Anyway, really great to hear about all the fun things everyone's doing back home!  Have a great week! Love you!

Elder Dalton
  Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.
Moroni 10:32
