Week 17 in Brno -

This week flew by. Last Monday we headed to Prague for exchanges with the assistants. We had a ton of traffic but we made it there and had a great exchange. On Tuesday we had a first lesson with a referral. The week before the missionaries told their ward mission leader they wanted to work more with members and referrals, he called a buddy on the spot and we had a lesson with him. HE was way prepared. IT was a pretty cool lesson, and he was ready to learn about the gospel. It was a great experience. Wednesday we were back in Brno. WE had a lesson with two of our investigators a t the same time and we did some splits. Both are doing great but one doesn't want to be baptized right now.. Bummer but things are going good! 

We have been focusing a lot on teaching on the street and how to improve it. WE have used brochures a lot this week and it has been cool to see their affect! Things are good! We got invited for lunch with a member on Wednesday, dinner on Thursday night and Saturday we did service and got fed after! Three times in one week is definitely a record! We got svickova twice which is a pretty good treat! On Saturday we went and did service with a member at his garden. IT is huge. But after, he let us try our hand at javelins. Last time it was shot put but this time javelin. Pretty fun! We also had a pretty good sports night and floorball is still the best! This transfer we have been focusing a lot on less actives. Every Sunday we have gone looking for members. Every week. We have found lots that don't live there but finally yesterday we had a miracle. We had already tried this home but we tried again. Last time we had tried there we met a guy after with a small child who had a guitar. We ended up setting up to meet in a park to play music together but he didn't end up coming. Turns out he is the member! We knocked on the door and he came down. Super cool! HE has a girlfriend and and 8 month old baby. Super cool and we are hoping to get to work with them now.

It has been a great week! Hope things go well as you all start school and such. Love you all!
