Rain in Bohemia

Something about Bohemia, Western Part of the Czech Republic, is that it is known for its CRAZY storms. Like, I really mean crazy! It goes from perfectly sunny to completely cloudy and then it downpours.  I don't even know if cats and dogs can describe what this rain is like!  Then you reach in your bag realize you forgot your umbrella for the third time this week!  But, you contact anyway! Definitely got some strange looks, but those are when the miracles come, and ironically people are a lot more open to talk to you when they notice how serious you are! :)

In other news, President McConkie came to Plzen for his last interviews with us and it was just such a great experience with him! I, along with all the other missionaries, will miss him very much, but we are so excited for President Pohořelický who is coming in about 2 and a half weeks. Right towards the end of this transfer! As for our investigators, things are going well! Both David and Mira are progressing well in the gospel reading and praying, but both are struggling with Church. We are hoping to focus on that this upcoming week, so that they can see the blessings of church. 

For our zone, we have started doing weekly challenges in areas. We contemplate and pray about how the zone could improve. The challenges are definitely meant to stretch us. We have had some great success with it. In Prague, it is such a  challenge to find someone on the street and then commit them to baptism. But the missionaries have found 2 solid progressing investigators. It has been really fun thinking and planning with them, but more fun to see how awesome the missionaries in our zone are! They are really striving to accomplish the goals. We also had the opportunity to drive 6 hours roundtrip into České Budějovice and interview an amazing new family that is getting baptized next week!! It was so great to be back in CBud and see all the places I used to be and remember such great stories! 

It has been a great week overall, and I am excited for what this week has in store. We have some exchanges left to do for the transfer, and some more work with our awesome investigators. Things are wonderful here in the Czech Republic! 

My scripture for the week comes from Ephesians 1:10- 

For me, it has helped me understand how in these times the Lord's promises from the Bible to his people are being fulfilled. That all will come unto to Christ and be gathered in him. Remember to lift where you stand and help in this amazing work! Have an awesome week! Love you all!
