Cheesy missionary pics. . everybody's got to have at least one
I want to share with you what has made this transfer so difficult and so very special for me. I remember when I got my call to be a trainer...I was so humbled. I was so thrilled for the new opportunity and adventure of helping a brand new missionary start this journey. My excitement soon turned to fear as I looked across the table at my new Hungarian companion during a weekly planning session. I looked at her and thought, "this is impossible. I can't understand her. She can't understand me." I completely turned away from God as I got up from that table and got to work doing EVERYTHING by myself. I figured she couldn't help me. I was so wrong. For 2 weeks, I literally did everything by myself. The planning, the calling, the driving, the teaching. All of it. I was only relying on myself, and because of that I completely broke down. I have learned that "with men (myself) this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26) As painful as it was to transition from doing everything by myself to taking things at a slower pace and truly relying on God, other missionaries, and the ward for help, it was no where near as painful as it was feeling completely alone.
During that big transition, I received a priesthood blessing from Elder Snarr, the Senior couple serving in Sidney. It was so powerful for me and I felt the healing power of the Atonement enter into my life and into my soul. In my blessing, I was told over and over again that all would change if I walked in her shoes and really tried to understand her. That was a huge turning point for me. As I turned back to God and turned to my companion, I found light. I love Sister Huszti so much. I genuinely love her and am in awe at her courage for serving a mission. She has been so brave and has helped me grow in miraculous ways. She is God's elect.
