This week was a good one. Like always. So we are just chugging away. Often
times my companion and I talk about how lucky we are to be here in the
Czech Republic. It is such an amazing opportunity to get to know the people
and shine the light of Christ.
We had a meeting with one of our investigators and he prayed for the first
time ever!!! We asked him how he felt, and he said that it brought him
happiness. He told us that he had hope that there is something up on the
top. I cannot describe the sensation and joy that comes, when a seed has
been planted, and a person is beginning to reap from it. How incredible! We
were able to share the restoration with him and invite him to read a little
of the Book of Mormon. We are gradually helping him on his path to finding
We also did a lot of finding this week. Today actually we were out on the
streets in the late morning. There was the normal crowd of people, but I
stopped as we neared a neighborhood and asked my companion if she felt we
should change our direction. We paused for a moment and both felt the need
to go on a certain path. We soon ran into a woman who was very sad. She
told us that nothing gave her joy, and she didnt really want to even be
talking with us. But we explained to her how we help people have hope, even
in these difficult times of life where we feel very alone. She listened as
we bore testimony. We left her with a card and she thanked us for talking
to her. I am so happy that we followed that sweet prompting and offer a
light of hope and peace.
We also got to see a few of the memebers this week. There is one family
here that is half czech and half american, the husband is from America. We
got to visit them this weekend, and when we walked into our home it was
like being in a forcefield. There was so much love, peace, and happiness.
Kind words and actions. I know that it was home where the spirit dwelled.
We also visited a very sweet older member and she shared with us a little
of her conversion story, and just told stories and laughed and loved us! It
was so nice to have a fun little tea party again, and then we shared a
thought with her about the light of Christ.
On Sunday I chatted with the temple sealer. He is the one who does all the
sealings for this country. He gave me very sweet encouragement and
explained to me how big it is when people decide to join the church here.
It is something so new and huge to except. That Joseph Smith restored the
true Church of Jesus Christ, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God,
there are just so many big huge blessings! I am grateful for the
opportunity that I have to teach and preach every single day. I love it.
Doctrine and Covenants 88:119
Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house,
even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of
learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God
