Clean Up Project

Sorry, this is another really lame title for my email. I am not really sure what to call the project we were given this week, but it cleaned up a lot of information for the ward. The new Stake Presidency really means business here, so they have assigned lots of projects and things are moving rapidly here. The bishops and branch presidents are having a hard time keeping up, so we got to help a little bit. Even though it was right at the last minute, we were asked to confirm the addresses for close to 30 less active members that have not been visited in a long time. And, we were asked to complete it in 2 days! So this weekend we took the car and drove all around Plzen with a list and coordinate grid on google maps that we created. I was pretty proud of it :) Along the way, we talked to lots of families and really enjoyed the work!  It was similar to the work we do most days. We had to complete it around the lessons that we already had planned, and we barely got it done before we had to be back home! But now we have confirmation that  the members do or do not live in these areas anymore. That will certainly clear the records and allow for more less active work in each of the wards and branches. Now we have a great list of people to visit in the upcoming weeks!  Just for an idea of how old this ward list is, one lady helped us to find out that one member had not lived in that house for 30 years!

Unfortunately, a lot of our investigators did not have time to meet with us this week so we do not have any more updates for them. It has felt like a slower week for us. This week we have our last zone conference with President McConkie and his family, and some other assignments to fulfill as zone leaders. Then the final week of the transfer is here.  The switch of presidents happens on the 28th, and then we have scheduled meet the new president interviews! Even though I am extremely sad that President and Sister McConkie will be going home, I am also excited for President and Sister Pohořelický. Crazy few weeks ahead of us! But lots of exciting times as well!

Sorry if this is short, time ran out really fast on me with emailing today. Have a great week! :)
