The Missionary Who Cried Lawyer

The creative title was easy this week! …to be explained later! :) For our missionary work this week, it has been the same as the last month or so.  We will find new people on the streets that will come to one lesson and then not come again, or they just do not come to the first lesson at all. We are deeply stuck in the hay right now, so to say, looking for the needle a.k.a the next progressing investigator! Viktor and Vera are still in good contact, reading and praying, but still nothing on their marriage.  :/ We are hoping to have an actual lesson with them this upcoming week at their work rather than having them come over to us all the time. Unfortunately, they live on the other side of Prague and takes a lot of time, but we have enough time this week to go there, which will be nice. :) 
Office work slowed down to a halt this week (which was rather nice, but also slightly stressful). I am currently waiting for the response from the lawyer and I cannot do anything till I hear a reply. I have a deadline that we have to meet next week and he is nowhere to be found. Therefore I am the missionary that cried lawyer, but in this story, he doesn’t respond!!! BUT, it has given us more time for missionary work! Which is way better anyway! :) We had another exchange with the zone leaders. Elder Terry and I were in Plzen, and Elder Cardon ran the show for our area in Prague with Elder Cook. Sounds like it went well! They got us some new potential investigators! :) We also have been preparing Olda to receive the Aaronic Priesthood this week! That will be awesome! :) He is so stoked! We are also stoked for him! 
This week we had our culture night where we went to the National Theatre and saw the Bartered Bride, a very famous Czech Opera. That was super awesome! :) It was all about a woman that was having an arranged marriage, and she did not like it, you know how that goes. Best quote of the play: “Beer is a gift from God!” which became a song for one of the acts. That was so Czech! Haha made me laugh! Overall, super awesome experience!
As for my scripture this week it comes from Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. This week in District meeting we talked about the importance of helping our investigators recognize the spirit and helping them build spiritual dependence. It is so important when we feel the spirit that we help others recognize it as well. We need to be more active in our use of one of the greatest gifts of God! I know that the spirit has truly blessed me, and has blessed those that have entered into the covenant of baptism! Have a great week!
 Love you all!
