Letters to Hungarian Missionaries

We have been working on getting the YSA weekly meetings more organized…. things planned for each Monday Family Home Evening and Friday night activities..  It has resulted in a variety of things to do.  One of the things that the council decided to do is to write our YSA missionaries from Hungary that are serving all over the world – one even in Hungary!  This is turning out to be a great service project for our YSA.

April 15, 2013 was our second time doing this once-a-month project.  And it was fortuitous that the YSA received an answer back from one of the Sister Missionaries who is serving in Germany on this very same day!  She included a very long letter – deliberately long she said, since she has not had the opportunity to speak or write in Hungarian since she left and she missed her native language!  She included several pictures…  Image

Gabor read the letter out loud while others were gathered around writing their letters.  There was an audible gasp when he read about her missing Hungary but that she would definitely redo this experience of serving her mission.

It was definitely a choice experience for these YSA to interact in a positive way with those who have chosen to leave their lives behind for the 1.5 or 2 years of their mission.

Some of their interactions are hysterical…. I wonder what was so funny!  Notice also, the Chocolate Twinkle Cookies that Felsted Elder made….Image

Great Service Project….
