Dear family and friends,
We had a great week this week! Here is the day, by day!
We went fishing as a district, and had a great time. Then we emailed and ended the night with FHE.
We had a normal day of contacting and then we ended with our English class.
Wednesday, 7/20: We had lesson almost all day long back to back and they all went fairly well. For the last
We had lesson almost all day long back to back and they all went fairly well. For the last one we were able to meet with a new investigator named Marek and his girlfriend, and they both had high levels of interest and we are excited to see how they progress.
Thursday. 7/21: We contacted and
We contacted and tracted for most of the day, and then we end the day with two recent convert lessons and game night.
We traveled to Prague to celebrate the anniversary of the creation of the Czech/Slovak mission. It was great to be able to see all the missionaries.
We traveled out to a member’s house and did service for them for the first half of the day, and then we traveled back to Olomouc and contacted and had sports night.
Was a normal Sunday, nothing to special about it. Church in the morning followed by several hours of tracting in the rain.
The spiritual thought today comes from Matthew 22. Here it is
16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cæsar, or not?
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21 They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left him, and went their way.
I love the wisdom of the Savior in this answer, but it begs the question what should we render to God? Just as Ceasar’s image is minted on every coin we are created in Gods image. Therefore, let us render to God our whole souls. I know that as we do this we will be blessed in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Have a great week!
