On Thursday i was on an exchange here with Elder Hudson. We had a great exchange and focused on HTBT with everyone on the street. We also had a goal to only have 10 seconds in between us finishing a conversation and starting another one. WE didn't quite make it but we spent the day running! IT was a lot of fun! And exhausting. WE had prayed about who we could find and we received revelation that we would look for a guy with a green shirt. The very last man we talked to was wearing a green shirt and wants to meet again! IT was a really fun exchange!
On Friday we were up early and driving to Prague. An hour outside of Prague is a castle called karlstejn. 4 years ago dad and I tried to visit it but turned around because we thought cars weren't allowed! Turns out they are OK! IT was cool to actually walk around. On the road that dad and I were on is a little parking lot and about 500 meters or so in to the forest is priests hill. 87 years ago. John a Widtsoe and 6 members (all the members of the church) Said a prayer and dedicated the Czech republic for the preaching of the gospel. We now have a stake! IT was a really cool meeting we had there. IT showed the power of prayer and what is possible. We also had a special prayer at the end in remembrance of the dedicatory prayer. IT was a really cool experience and felt just like the temple!
WE got back and had sports night and Saturday we went on a vylet with a member and saw a zamek and had a grill which was really fun. The bus ride back not so much as i was pretty car sick but at least i didn't throw up! Anyways things are great! Hope you have a great week!
The spot where it was dedicated. IT says "On this spot the czechoslovakia mission of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints was dedicated on the 24 of July 1929"
A Member from Ghana gave me his shirt and my companion his tie. I felt pretty cool!
