Such a great busy week!

The first picture is when we went to Prague, and the second is our sports night we had with the branch here, a lot of people left before the picture but we had a great time playing volleyball and soccer. 

This was such a great busy week. We went Monday afternoon to Praha for a doctors check up, and then stayed at the assistants apartment because we had training the next day. On the way there, the train was so packed from Easter, that we had to sit by the doors because there were no seats haha great experience. We went on a beautiful run, up some crazy stairs, that are just like... man who had time to put over a thousand stairs up through the middle of nowhere? Such a fun run and beautiful view at the top. Tuesday we had a great training about mixing things up and not getting into ruts and doing the same thing day after day. We also talked about the importance of commitments and why we give them to investigators and why it's important to always follow up. Then we had the prime example of why we should follow up. During one of our lessons with an investigator, she told us that she had been waiting to tell us that she has been living the word of wisdom and she was so excited about it and we were like yes! way to go! haha man...we forgot to ask you about that.... of course we didn't say that to her but it made me realize wow, that training was for me haha. That lesson will stick to me like glue for the rest of my mission. After our training we went to Hradec Kravala on an exchange with the zone leaders. I was with Elder Nelson who is such a great Elder. We taught some lessons, and got two new investigators for them. We met with one they had found earlier and had a great spiritual lesson about the Plan of Salvation and I had the amazing privilege to listen to a wonderful mans first prayer ever. The first prayers are always the most sincere. After that lesson we went and contacted in the pouring rain for about three hours, then taught English. During our English lesson, the people there who aren't members, wanted us to teach them why we didn't smoke or drink, so we taught them the Word of Wisdom and they all thought it was really cool. After our exchange we came back late Wednesday night and went to work so we could get all of our lessons in and hit our weekly goals. Hard work pays off, it always does. This week two missionaries who served here about 2 years ago came and visited and we were able to have a lesson with them and it was so great to see how they changed peoples lives here. We had some funny experiences with drunk people, they really enjoy yelling and being loud and funny. Nothing bad, just funny experiences that always brighten your day and build my testimony of the Word of Wisdom. They are all the funny drunks here, not the mad ones so it always makes me feel good about my Czech when I hear them speak and they have no idea what they are saying as well haha.
