I Am Blessed To Be Here!

February 8, 2016

Ahoj everybody!

This week was great as usual. Lots of contacting, teaching, and we are seeing lots of success! This mission really is great!

On Tuesday, we talked to people on the streets all day! We also had one meeting with a guy that is paralyzed and is stuck in a hospital. It was really cool to visit him and just talk to him. He isn't a member, but he has a strong testimony and is really just grateful for the life that he has. It was cool seeing someone so grateful in such hard circumstances. We also went on 2 more exchanges this week - one with the zone leaders and one with the other Elders that are serving here in UH with us. Tuesday night we drove to Brno and I had my exchange there on Wednesday.

In Brno, we contacted and taught 3 lessons. Being in a city that is so much bigger is pretty different. There are so many more people to talk to and so many that haven't heard the message before. We had the opportunity to teach a girl in Brno from Brazil. She is so cool and so prepared for the gospel. She loves the Book of Mormon and testified of it to us. It is awesome when we find people like her because it really does show that the Lord prepares people.

On Thursday we had district meeting in Zlín. That night we also went to a member's house and ate dinner there. They are such and awesome family and the food was great as well! That night, we started our other exchange.

Friday I was serving with Elder Croney, an Elder serving here in UH. We had a great exchange. We found this guy on the street that wanted to hear more so we went to lunch with him. He has strong faith and loves us. He bought our lunch and desert for us. Friday night, we visited our investigator who is committed to baptism later this month and had a great lesson. We taught the Word of Wisdom and fasting and he agreed to both of them. We are coming up on his date and he is getting excited and still looks strong!

Saturday was a regular day. Planning, finding, and then we ended the night with mutual.
Sunday was great. Testimony meeting was spiritual and the lessons were as well. That night we went to the guy’s house that Elder Croney and I found on our exchange. We taught the restoration to him and his wife and they liked it. They asked lots of good questions and they want to meet again!

This week I was just reminded of how great a mission is! We work to find those people that are prepared. Sometimes it may take a while to find them, but they are there. And when I see how the gospel really changes their lives to the better, I realize how blessed I am to be out here!

Love you all!
