We were once again lucky to go to Budapest for Senior Conference. It is always such a treat for us to meet with the other couples and get direction from President Smith. This is a picture of all of us minus one couple who had to return for health reasons. They were missed.
President Smith shared with us what will happen if we get more involved in proselyting as couple missionaries. He is really good with power point. Steve made the mistake of showing him his residence permit card. We were not allowed to smile for this picture. My first one must have looked too good because we had to drive three hours to Budapest to have a retake. No one will ever see mine.
After dinner we played some games.
And cleaned up.
Thursday we journeyed down to the Duna (Danube) for a trip up the river.
We were so excited to have a boat trip even if the weather was a bit nippy!
It is such a great view of the Parliament Building that we toured at the last conference.
It was our first time to sail under one of the seven bridges. We got to see stuff we hadn't noticed before from land.
It was great to see the villages from the boat.
After 1 1/2 hours we docked and started our shopping and sightseeing adventures in Szentrendre.
We visited a Serbian Church that had a lot of cool old things to look at.
There were actually two building a church and a museum .
It is always interesting to see how and what others worship.
Most are really ornate.
It was really fun to meet this couple from California. They actually found us with our name tags. It was interesting because they were the ones passing out pass along cards.
We ate at the Elizabeth Etterem and the food was delicious. I had hot chocolate to drink that was the best I have ever tasted.
The trip down the river only took an hour.
We only had to go one stop on the Metro (underground subway) to get to the mission home stop. I had to take this picture because the people going down look like they are leaning back but that is ok because if they look at us it looks like we are leaning forward.
A good time was had by all.
This is really a picture that they took of the three couples that will be going home before the next Senior Conference. Endure to the end!
