I can’t begin to tell you about how great this experience has been. Today we will have our first baptism in our branch since March. The sister that is being baptized is awesome. We have worked with her in English class at the branch and she has been investigating the church for about a year, since moving to this area. Her dream is to teach school. I know the Lord will bless her as makes changes and depends on Him for what needs to be done. We have great missionaries here in Szombathely, and they are working hard to grow the Branch.
Tell Henry and Avery the field is white, so they can thrust in their sickles with there might and go forth and serve. Many are waiting for them. It's not easy but when they see the changes in the lives of people they serve. Oh, what marvelous feeling. Just ask Sam.
On a personal note we watched our 40 year old son get married last Sunday via internet and Skype from Hungary to Hawaii. We have received permission to attend the Japanese reception in October in Kyoto. Of course we have to fly like missionaries. The problem is that the flight is 14 hours each way. We will have to adjust again to jet lag.
Your Brother and Sister,
John and Carol
