Oct 31, 2016 - Great Week

This has been such a great week, it started with being able to teach English. We had two people there, and the spiritual thought about the Plan of Salvation was an amazing way to end it. One of the students has so many questions, but will only talk with us after English, so we usually talk for about an hour or so about it all.  Its so amazing how the spirit works. Always being with us, doing all the teaching, helping the people understand and accept the things we teach them. This week we had a goal to really focus on teaching by the spirit, and as we did, we saw so many times and situations where the spirit taught the lesson, building the testimonies of the investigators and ours.

Today we were able to have a small Halloween party, mainly we carved pumpkins and made pizza. The caramel for the apples burnt, but its okay, caramel gets stuck in my teeth anyways haha.  

Also, on Tuesday, we had the opportunity to go to Prague for a zone training. We learned so much about how we can help our friends to Christ, by going with them, and showing them the way. President had a great example about how sometimes we go upriver over rapids and big rocks. Sometimes we are scared, but when we go first and show them the way, and help them every step, the start to be able to trust us and then do things we ask, and all the little things start to come together, and then we are upstream to calm water, a beautiful little pond, but one of the important things, is that they need to see the pond, and the blessings that await them there. 
We also learned about how we can use members to teach with us. We were showed a couple of cool websites to invite members to make cool memes, about their favorite scripture verse or quote by apostles. Its on and There you can find some cool pictures and edit them and share them on social media to set a great example of how the gospel helps you. I encourage all of you to take a loot at it and try it out. It's amazing how fast social media spreads and the example it has on people. 

We had a member from Taiwan, ( I think that's how you spell it) come to visit us in Hradec Kralove. He is so cool. His name is Mark, and studied in Ostrava a couple years ago and came back to visit and wanted to go around and see all the towns that the church is. Well, he was here in Hradec and it was very cool to go contacting with him and get to know him a little bit. It was very cool listening to his testimony and hearing about how he met the missionaries and how his testimony has grown in his two years as a member. I know that the gospel changes lives, and that God loves us all. thank you for all of your prayers and support, have a great week.
