Elder and Sister Bailey Speak in Nagykanizsa

Last Sunday, we were assigned to speak in a totally new unit in Hungary — Nagykanizsa.  The Elders have been working hard in this town for 4-5 months, and have not yet had a baptism. It took us a little over two hours to drive to Nagykanizsa through villages and the country-side.Baileys and Elders in Nagykanizsa

As we found earlier in our mission, when we were helping to open Zalaegerszeg, opening a new area is very, very difficult in Hungary. In our Sacrament meeting, we only had two investigators, plus the four Elders. This is probably the smallest Sacrament meeting in which we have spoken. Even so, we were well prepared, the Elders did an excellent job of conducting and translating, and the attendees seemed to enjoy the experience. Someday this may be a stake …Baileys Speaking in Nagykanizsa

Cromars in Pécs

Elder and Sister Cromar are from California, and joined the Senior Missionaries in Hungary and few months ago. They have assignments in Székesfehérvár, Veszprém and Nagykanizsa that are similar to our assignments in Pécs and Kaposvár.Cromars in Pecs

They drove down to Pécs to pickup some items we had in our apartment that they can use in their apartment.  Senior couples must purchase everything they need for furnishing (e.g., fans, small tables, matresses, etc.) and cooking (e.g., crockpots, large pans, a mixer, etc.) in their apartments. So all that we have gets passed from couple to couple (we leave Hungary in another month). While they were here, we toured much of Pécs on a nice cool day.Cromars on the Bastien

Summer Play in Budapest

Ad for the Play


On June 22, the Young Adults from Pécs presented our summer play, The Mystery of the Missing Jewelry.  This was a 70 minute mystery-comedy that involved many people from the audience to help in solving the mystery. These were the ads we used to advertise the play in Budapest and Pécs.


There were 65 people attending the performance, including President and Sister Baughman.  The Baughmans will be leaving the mission on July 1, when a new mission president arrives.  The play was enjoyed by all who attended.

We drove the three hours from Pécs to Budapest using all three of the cars in the Branch.  The Budapest Young Adult leaders served us dinner, and helped us set-up for the evening.  The following picture includes the Baughmans (left), the cast, and the Baileys (right).

Celebrating His 100th Birthday

Elder Bailey’s father (Walter Bailey) had his 100th birthday party on June 3. The party was held in North Ogden, Utah, and had many, many people attend. Some of those at the party from our family (shown below) were our son, Chad and grandson, Carlin. Also, our granddaughter Kaitlin, and our sons, James and Robert. Our daughter-in-law Amelia took the picture, and sent it to us.Dad's 100th Birthday Party

Rehearsing for a New Play in Pécs

The Pécs Young Adults began practicing a new play entitled, The Mystery of the Missing Jewelry. We have some new actors for this play, plus some highly experienced actors from our Christmas play.Summer Play Rehearsals

Our Home Teaching Families in Pécs

Beginning in October of 2011 we had a total of six families that we were assigned to home teach in Pécs.

MajaMariann (Maja) Kreiczer – Maja lives with her parents, and is one of our young adult leaders. She served a mission on Temple Square and in Oregon in the United States.

Maja is planning to marry Mathew in the United States this Fall. Mathew is a young man she met at a Young Adult conference last year in Romania. Mathew now lives and works in the United States, so they have been fostering their relationship using Skype, telephone calls and SMS for several months.

Beatrix Kettler Family – Includes Beatrix (a single mother) and her three children, Márci, Veronika and Hunor. Marci is one of our young adults.Kettler Family

We had the opportunity to use our car to help them move a couple of months ago.Helping to Move

President and Adrienn Szabadkai Family – Includes the father and mother, and three children that are now at home, Bence, Luca and Lea. Both Bence and Luca have been active in our Young Adult program. Bence served a mission in England. President Szabadkai is in the Hungary Budapest Mission Presidency.

Gabriella (Gabi) Kecskés Family – Includes Gabi (a single mother), and her daughter, Kira. Because everybody is so busy (Gabi works and is the Relief Society President in Pécs), we held some of our hometeaching meetings at McDonalds. Kira loved these special times. We were able to help them move to a new apartment, where Kira now has her own room.Sister Bailey-Gabi-Kira

Zsuzsa and Her Daughters (??? and Vivi) – This family has their own home, which Zsuzsa’s husband, who has not yet joined the Church, built. The house is located on a side-hill near a large corn patch, just outside of Pécs. It is a beautiful location for a home, but a little difficult to access during the winter.Zsuzsa and Her Daughters in Front of their Home

Cleaning Up Hungary

In the Spring, Hungary has a country-wide clean-up day. Many people in the Pécs Branch, including some of our Young Adults, volunteered to spend a few hours on Saturday to help (yellow vests). We also did this last year when we lived in Szombathely.Clean-up with Others in Pécs

We had Mormon ‘Helping Hands’ (Segítő Kezek) yellow vests that showed we were from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

We were given a specific location to pick up all the trash, along with other volunteers. They also gave us each a pair of gloves, and a large white plastic bag to put all of the trash into. As the day went on, we filled many of the large white bags. Our group worked long and hard finding trash.Many in the Pécs Clean-up Group

At the end of the project, we all went for a well-deserved ice cream cone (actually, it was Gelato). On the way to the ice cream stand, we all passed out at least one pass-along card. It was a fun, and productive, service project.Clean-up Group with Ice Cream

Sister Bailey Teaching

Sister Bailey is teaching a Relief Society class in Kaposvár. She now teaches all of her classes using PowerPoint presentations.  She loves to create the pictures, and associated text.  She then has one of the Hungarian sisters translate the words on the slides, and then uses another person to translate for her while she presents the lesson.Kaposvar Relief Society Lesson

A Rainy Day in Pécs

It was a rainy day in Pécs as we walked across the belvaros to the pizza place.Sister Bailey in the Rain

We had lunch with the missionaries. Elder Nielsen is going home, and Elder Wiscomb is becoming a Zone Leader in another area of Hungary. The two younger Elders (Andersen and Judd) are staying in Pécs this transfer.Two Elders Leaving Pecs

It was still raining when they left. They did not have enough working umbrellas, but they figured out how to keep everybody dry.Elders from Pecs Trying to Stay Out of the Rain

Later in the day, we all went to Family Home Evening at the church. After our lesson, we played ‘Round Robin’ ping pong for a couple of hours.
