Week 6 - Prague - Easter

Easter was a great weekend and also Monday here in the Czech republic. We got to do a few visits and We again had a table on the street showing the video from the church to everyone! Sunday night as a district we all went over to presidents home and we cooked Halusky (it's a big meal from Slovakia) for president and his wife. IT was a blast. It was like cooking with Mom and Dad. We used about 5 Kg of potatoes, 3 kg of bacon, and 1.5 kilos of bryndza (goat cheese from Slovakia) IT was a great Easter meal! 

We had a lot of cool experiences with sharing the video about Christ. Members showed it to lots of their friends. We had one opportunity to share it was one of their friends. And we got to testify lots that Christ lives. It is the best message that we have.

On Easter Monday we got to visit the bishop with the senior couple here in Prague and they made burgers for us which was pretty fun! We had a great visit and that night we had the last FHE with that senior couple before they leave. 
We had a great lesson with Michal this week about The atonement and he is going to pass the sacrament this week for the first time! Thursday we had MLC which was great. WE focused all on finding, and urgency and recent converts we had some great discussion and we will have some great zone trainings soon. President bought a copy of the power of everyday missionaries for all the leaders so we have been able to read that too and it is great! I had an exchange with my district leader on Friday and had a good day. 

This week we had one cool experience. We were waiting above a metro stop for a lesson that was supposed to come. She hadn't come and I saw I guy and had the thought I needed to stop him and talk. Didn't listen. about 15 seconds later we decided the lady wasn't coming so I took off running after that guy. Down into the metro, down the escalator just as the train got there and hopped on and started talking to him. turned out to be a really nice guy and had a family. In the end, didn't want to meet but it was cool to see that he was open to hearing our message. IT was a great week and lots more to come! 

Love you all!
