Week 16 in Brno - Sweater Weather

Like the subject says, We had to pull our sweaters out this week. The weather has been pretty interesting and we had a couple of colder days. It is warm again now and we have had a good week.
On Tuesday we had a fun meeting with an investigator who has investigated for a while and is basically a member. She taught us how to brush our teeth correctly! This week in the morning we started running stairs! Its been a lot of fun! Also the new thing here is that new Pokemon game... We found out that our church building is a level 5 training center. Don't know if that's good or bad. But there are more people outside the church building! So its been interesting! We had a great dinner with a member this week and it has been great! 

We had a great week with investigators as well! A guy we met a few weeks ago came to  English and we set up a lesson. HE came and we watched the restoration movie. HE thought is was so well done but it's not the greatest he was just feeling the holy ghost! On Friday we had exchanges and i was with Elder NEwman from my MTC group. WE had a good exchange and had a really interesting "Lesson" It was a first lesson and the girl came to the building. We started a building tour and she then asked about why we don't have crosses and then said "I read the book of Mormon and it talks really bad about the catholic church and that its the devils church" It was interesting. We said it doesn't actually say that but she didn't want to really listen and left. IT was interesting! we had a fun sports night and played floorball again. Saturday we went service tracting and one guy said we could help him for 30 minutes.. It was solid 2 and a half hours but it was great! That night we had a guy show up to a lesson that we met a week ago. WE didn't have his number but he came and is searching. WE had a really good lesson and he is on baptismal date for the 24 September.  WE also did weekly planning at a running sushi place! That was pretty fun! Sunday i gave a talk at church and talked about the power of inviting and that that is all we must do. When we invite people can feel our love and grow closer to god. It doesn't have to be a big invitation. I talked about how i always wanted to invite people to try water polo but how often i invited them to come to mutual or something like that! So just invite! Hope things are well! have a great week!
