Great week!

Well this week has been great. I got my new companion Elder Rees on Monday, and ever sense then has just been great. We had the opportunity to do a lot of finding this week which is awesome to start off a transfer. We are learning how to work and teach together in unity and it is helping us in the work so much. I am blessed to serve with him, he is in his last transfer and I have so much to learn from him.

He also just came from Ostrava, so I was able to get an update of the amazing people there and how they have all been doing in the last two months. It's so great to hear how they are doing and how the Lord is continuing to bless them. 

We had the opportunity to teach a recent convert on Sunday. We taught her about the priesthood and how its a selfless gift from God. She really enjoyed how we told her that its like an umbrella, that one man can stand there and hold it, but everybody surrounding can receive the benefits and blessings of it. She really liked that and now understands better that not every member man and women needs to hold the priesthood. It's literally a selfless gift, we can't lay our hands on our own heads and give ourselves a blessing, its only to help bless others. 

One huge amazing experience this week, was being able to participate in the Toronto Project. We were able to help clean out an old hospital which had some pretty random stuff in it. We were able to help there doing that and other odd jobs that needed to be done. The place was for physically disabled people, they plan on using the old hospital for something, so we helped them get a jump start on preparing it. It was a great day, there were members from all over the Czech Republic, and working with them was so great. I was able to hear several conversion stories and see how the church has changed these people. We are looking forward to a great week, very excited for what it will bring. Also i got a camera charger so here are some pictures =) I got a hair cut
