Anyway, life is good. It's been a crazy, hot week, but so has every other week been this transfer. Last Monday we didn't really do anything too spectacular. We just ran a lot of errands and I got my hair cut. :) It doesn't look much different, just a little bit shorter (well 4 or 5 inches shorter).
This week we've been teaching this really cool guy named Luděk. He's about 30 and works at Okay Market, a little grocery store down the street from us. He is so cool! He's really open to our discussions on religion, and he has some pretty legit opinions. The other cool thing is that we teach him while he is working. He isn't married, but he's living with someone and they have a little boy and another kid on the way, and he works so hard for his family. So he doesn't really ever have time to meet outside of work. So we teach him while he works, and every once in a while we have to pause while he helps a customer, but it works way better than I thought it would. We gave him a Book of Mormon and he's been reading. He just has so much potential, we're really excited to keep teaching him. :)
On Wednesday, Miroslav invited us over for a scripture study at his house. He planned a lesson with scriptures and questions, and we came and brought a few members with us. It was really good! He planned really well and we had really good discussion. He is so ready to get baptised! After his lesson, we asked Vilém, one of the members there with us, to give Miroslav a blessing to help him as he prepares for baptism. The blessing was so inspired, and Miroslav said he felt really really good afterwards. We are so excited for him to get baptized, he is so awesome! Less than three more weeks!!
Thursday we had game night, and Miroslav brought his Badminton kit! It was SO FUN! I don't think I've ever seriously played badminton before and it was the bomb! At first Ses. Holland and I played together against Miroslav, and then the elders came and Elder Brittner and I were on a team against Ses. Holland and Miroslav, and then later Ses. Holland and Elder Galbraith. Elder Brittner and I rocked it! Haha it was so much fun and Miroslav had a great laugh watching us!
Friday, Miroslav was supposed to leave for the weekend to Ostrava, but we asked to meet with him before he left and he stayed in Brno an extra hour just to meet with us! We talked about fasting since it was fast sunday and then we asked him about his baptism. We asked him who he wanted to baptized him, and he said, "Je mi jedno, někoho kdo má tu pravomoc!" Which is essentially, "It doesn't matter, just someone who has the right authority!" That was a really cool moment for Ses. Holland and I. He really understands what being baptized means, and he's so ready!
Then Sunday was fast sunday, and for dinner us and the elders went over to the Batys' apartment for Sweedish meatballs! The Baty's are so awesome! We are so lucky to get to work with them. And the best part? They're from Lindon, Utah! I'm definitely going to their house when I get home!! They are awesome!!!!
The work is still going forward everyone! It's hard and it's hot but it's moving forward and we're seeing miracles!!
Thanks for your love, prayers, and support, they mean a lot to me. I hope you all have an awesome week and talk to you later!
