Mothers Day, President Uctdorf and more!

It was great to get to talk to you guys yesterday and it was a lot of fun! There was actually one thing i forgot to mention and that was the story of our apartment. But first like i mentioned on Saturday and Sunday we have a special conference of the church and President Uctdorf will be coming to organize the first stake in the Czech republic! We are so excited!!! its going to be awesome!

This week has been awesome! WE met the coolest people and we have been so busy! We me the coolest guy who wants to be baptized. Came to church in a suit and white shirt and tie and it is awesome! we also met a really cool girl. We were inviting people to English when we came across a a girl crying. We taught her right there and had a second meeting the next day with a member. The members here are awesome! we have a church building! And it is a huge branch soon to be ward! It is so cool and so much fun! Sunday was an awesome day! We had a fun sacrament, and then some meetings and then skyping! It was great and a good week! 

But the story of our apartment! So during communism the church was banned here. The kept it alive by doing yoga and then doing a spiritual hour at the end and people who showed interest they would invite to read the book of mormon. Every person they invited was baptized in the middle of the night. But our apartment is the apartment that they started the classes in. Our land lord is the guy that kept the church going. HE is so cool. He gave a super cool talk on Sunday about patriarchs. This morning during studies i found an old history he had written about the church and it is so cool to read! These members here are something else. He didn't have the priesthood for a while and was still leading and teaching about the church for the first little bit! 
Today was a weird birthday but its been great! I loved telling people i was 18 it astonished them even more! But we had lunch with the sisters and went to a castle which is a church and it is on a hill right in the center of the city. We got to go up in the towers too! IT was so fun!
Anyways that's about it! I love you guys and will let you know how things go next week!!!!
