Czech vs American Food
So we had an idea...and it quickly, scarily, became a reality. We have been working with a less active family that lives in a village about 20 minutes outside of Plzen. While doing service for them, our district has been trying to think of a way to involve the members in a big finding activity. We want to gather many of the lost less active members here in Plzen. So the idea was a BBQ! Czech food vs American food! We can all eat great food and ultimately in the end, give the Czechs the win on a rigged competition. That was the fun part, but the scary part was the branch really, really liked the idea (we didn’t tell them it was rigged and that Czech food would obviously win outright) and they decided to combine it with a service project that we are doing on the 30th of July for the Duchkovi, the less active family. So the end of this week, we have been rapidly planning, inviting, and getting things ready for a big BBQ in about two weeks. It should be awesome, and we are hoping that we can get a good turn out, but the stress level in our district went up a little bit to say the least :)
This week, we are having the annual visit to the monument in Priests hill in Karlstejn. That is the place where it was dedicated for the proclaiming of the gospel July 24, 1929. We have been preparing our zone and helping them get ready for this event. News on how it went to come next week! :)
In other news, many of our investigators have been gone on vacation or have not been in contact this week so unfortunately, there is not much that I can update you from that. But we are hoping for a better week this upcoming week. This week we focused a lot on finding less actives, and working with them in efforts to help our zone see the importance of that work. Hopefully, throughout our zone we will be able to see some success in that area of work along with the weekly challenges that we are sending out to them. Sorry this email is short this week, we have an unusually packed schedule for a Monday. We are hoping that new investigators and less actives will show up for their lessons and we can continue to help build and strengthen the Plzen ward.
Love you all very much! Have a great week!
Elder Belshe :)
