Week 27 in Brno - Happy Halloween!

Last day of October time is flying faster! This week has been a good week! On Tuesday and Wednesday i was in Olomouc a city about an hour north on exchanges with elder Nelson. We served together my first transfer in ostrava. Lots has changed in a year. We had a great time though. WE got to teach a recent convert who really likes Catholicism. It was a pretty spiritual lesson. We also had the opportunity to teach the guy who i did a baptismal interview for. It was a good exchange and then Thursday we had training here in Brno. IT was a great training. President trained on baptism, how to talk about it better and sooner. There was a lot of information. WE talked about referrals, and blessings. It was a good day. The biggest thing was the issued a challenge. For every district to baptize one person before Christmas. IF we all achieve it we we will have a two day training for the entire mission in Prague! Lots of work to be done! WE also have transfers coming in a week!

We were able to have a lesson with Martin this week, he has a baptismal date but probably wont make it for now. We talked about Jesus and read from the Book of Mormon. He even gave us a ride home after! On Saturday we had 4 hours of service. We shoveled and swung pickaxes for those four hours. we are sore. It was with the neighbor of the person we helped last week! It was great! We took out another tree and a stump. With only pix axes.. It was a lot of cutting. We also had sports night. Sunday we had fast Sunday because we have our first stake conference this week! We will be in Prague for that! We also will be singing with our ward . It will be fun. Daylight savings time happened here! That was the first time i woke up feeling rested in a long time! Sunday night we were invited to come to a fireside with the ward a couple that got married a year ago talked about their marriage. They are great! Ivo the husband was baptized in 2012 and found the gospel and his wife at the same time. HE scored! He is a stud! Its been a pretty good week. This week is already pretty busy! Lots of things on plan, culture night, service, Halloween party, stake conference and transfers! We will see how it goes! Love you all!
