I'll just get right into it! 

Monday was Family Home Evening and just a regular P-day! 

Tuesday was a day on the streets! We talked with a lot of people and set up a few meetings with a few people. We also went and contacted a little bit with a member here! His name is Vojta and he is actually going on a mission in about a month. So we did some contacting with him to show him what it is like! It was super fun.

Wednesday we did about the same thing. Stopped lots of people on the streets and taught people about the gospel. We've been handing out tons of Book of Mormons lately. We had English Wednesday night and that was a success.

Thursday, we traveled to Brno! We had training there for most of the day. We got training from President McConkie, the zone leaders, and the sister training leaders. We also watched the worldwide missionary training from Salt Lake. Right after training ended, we started an exchange. I was with Elder Rees who is currently serving in Zlín. We met and talked to a few people on the way back and that night.

Friday we were on our exchange for about half the day and it was great. Elder Suwyn, my companion got back, and then we taught a lesson. In that lesson with our new investigator, we committed him to be baptized and he said yes! He is from Slovakia so it's a little harder to understand, haha, but he is awesome. He is a soccer player too. 

Saturday we weekly planned and contacted. We also went to the church that night and had a fun branch activity. One of the members got back from her mission here, so she just talked about it and her experiences.

Sunday, church was uplifting as usual. I have found that I can understand a lot more of the talks than I thought but I have to listen really hard haha. Our 2 people on date didn't end up coming to church though unfortunately. We contacted the rest of the night! 

The work here is great! I am so thankful for this opportunity to serve as a missionary. It really is the best work on the Earth! The Church is true!

Love you all!
