Before we even got to Hungary, Sister S sent me an email sent to her and the Bishop of the Buda Ward from a BYU-I group that was coming to visit some businesses in Hungary, as well as in other countries. They wanted to visit with our YSA. There were 2 returned missionaries from Hungary in this BYU group.
At first I wanted to have a dinner for them; but then I reconsidered – Sister H would not be here to help! Then Timi, a local YSA, came to the rescue and said, I can help and we will use my (authentic Hungarian) recipes. The BYU-I group offered to pay for the costs of feeding them. So…. Ron and I bought some of the food and Timi and I bought the other. We were feeding 40 from the BYU-I group and any YSA that could attend on a Wednesday evening.
After the dinner, some of the faculty advisors helped us clean up the dishes! And off the group went – with some of our YSA as tour guides – up to Buda Castle and some other nearby sights.
