Dear Family and Friends,
Oh man, this week has been the best! Here is the day by day:
Here is the day by day:
Monday, May 9:
To start off, the day we went mini-golfing with some of the YSA and the Bowens. Then we got some lunch with them before we had the rest of normal P-Day activities (studying, laundry, etc.). Then at we went to the Dvorakovi family’s home to help them with their family home evening, and then we went to RDV with Bowens where we had a small dinner and played Apples to Apples with the YSA.
Tuesday, May 10:
Normal morning study schedule followed by some early morning contacting. Then we had a lesson with a less active member named John, followed by a short visit to Ellie’s. To end the night we had our englsih class!
Wednesday, May 11:
We had District Meeting and polar bear in the morning. And after that we were basically out the rest of the day talking to people on the street about baptism!
Thursday, May 12:
We had studies in the morning followed by a meeting with President Zatlokal. Then we met with Ellie for a bit to hshare a brief spiritual thought and help her with her piano homework. Then we went to lunch with a member. We then went to contact in the park, until we had an early dinner with a friend of ours named Katy. After which, we had sports night where we played Ultimate Frisbee and soccer.
Friday, May 13:
Normal studies, followed by a chalk display! Then we went out and contacted until we had another lesson with John. Then we went to a recent converts violin recital (which was amazing!). After that we went to her family’s home and had a Vietnamism Barbaque with them.
Saturday, May 14: We weekly planned until 12 when we had lunch and hoped on a train to go to Prague! We traveled with Elder Bourn and the other Ostrava missionaries. When we got to Prague we went to a special Saturday Conference where Preisdent Uchdorf spoke! He announced officially the formation of a stake here in the Czech Republic! The Confrence Hall was so packed all of the missionaries had to stand in the back to try and listen in, it was amazing! Afterwards we went and spent the night at the Assistants.
Sunday, May 15:
We formally organized the Czech Praha Stake, and called the first Czech Patrirch. I can’t begin to describe how amazing it was! Then we traveled back to Olomouc with the YSA.
Spiritual thought is just going to be quick this week due to lack of time, but I saw yet another quote this week I really liked and it was as such,
“Vision without action is just a dream,
action without vision just passes time,
but action with vision can change the world.”
Those of us that lack the vision of where they want their life to lead us, let us pray that we might see the way that will bring us the happiness the Lord has prepared for us. I know that with the Lord all things are possible and that every one of us is capable of so much more than we know. I know he lived and lives still, in his name, amen.
Have a great week!
