Saturday May 28, Week 5 in BRNO "the windows of heaven"

As the subject states this week has been a great week! We are being blessed here! Last Sunday was the first Sunday in a ward. We don't have a bishop yet but it was still exciting! On Monday we had training here in Brno. All the missionaries in Slovakia and our zone were here. It was pretty great!! We trained on Church and how to bring investigators with us. It was great and then president Trained on the spirit and it was a really good training also with sister McConkie who trained on unity. It was great to be with them. We have one more training with them... On the 28 of June President Pohořelícky will have the keys and the phone and will be our mission president. We have a training with president McConkie the week before and then also with president pohorelicky on the 2 of July. Lots of things are happening!

This week we had two great lessons with our investigator bronislav. We taught him the law of chastity and word of wisdom and he accepted a baptismal date finally! My companion in explaining the law of chastity said that it means we don't have any sexual relations outside of... Religion. The words for Marriage and religion sound similar and it was so hilarious! good times! Things have been going so well in our area. We are finding people who are prepared more than ever. WE have taught 7 member present lessons with 3 more on plan. More than ever before and things are just going great! We had a super cool lesson with another guy last night. He has absolutely no religious background! It was really interesting. When i say no religious background i mean absolutely nothing at all.

Our land lord is named Gad Which sometimes makes for some funny jokes because you say it in Czech how we say in English god. so we live in the apartment under Gad. But He came down on Tuesday after planning because he could smell what we had made for dinner. I had made burgers with Lipton onion soup (speaking of i could use more of that) He smelled it upstairs! Pretty funny but ended up talking to us until almost 10:25,

On Thursday we had an exchange with olomouc. I was with Elder Cardon and we had a great exchange. We went out Wednesday night and some guys were playing basketball so we told them we would play if we could teach them. Played and had some great conversations for about 10 minutes! We extended some baptismal dates on the streets and even got a hug from this guy we taught! We also found a really cool mom who we are meeting with tomorrow! It should be great!

The last couple things that happened this week is that last night we got on a bus and there are two kids there... With a water polo ball. I went up and talked to them! They play here. Pretty cool! Today we played squash this morning. We met a guy on the street who wanted to teach us so he invited us and he taught us how to play better! Lots of fun! we then did a service project with the branch and it was great! Other than that not too much! This week will be another busy one! Love you all!
