A Finding Miracle!

  • We are scheduling a good number of return lessons, usually a few a week. The problem is that over the last 6 weeks/ this entire transfer, not one person has come to that second lesson yet. Which is a little bit ridiculous. But that's going to change this week. We met a super cool guy named P. last night. I will detail that experience more in my main email (somehow Brad’s main email never was sent but his companion Elder Robinson gave a good report of the meeting.  Maybe next week I will have Brad's info too!). Prayers for him would be welcome.

From Elder Robinson:  "We had a marvelous experience yesterday. Basically, we had been contacting all day and the opposition was downright ridiculous. I received an impression that I needed to calm down, so I asked my companion "Elder, may we read from the Book of Mormon? " So we took ourselves a sit and started to read. I wanted to pray and ask for patience and I began to read in Mosiah chapter 7. I heard the last 2 verses like lightning in a thunder storm. Mosiah 7: 32 And now, behold, the promise of the Lord is fulfilled, and ye are smitten and afflicted. 33 But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.
 I know that in His time we will see blessings.

The next person we talked to was P. We had contacted him early this week and he had not the time to talk. But he had seen us on his bike ride, stopped and waited for us to walk by. He asked us why we are here and what we offer. So we taught him about God and prayer. He loved it. So he asked us where we had our office so we can meet. We asked if he knew PSG and that we are on the second floor. His face went still and his eyes widened. He then said "Boys, I work at PSG on the second floor. My office is the one next to yours."

GOD IS IN THE WORK. THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES. Man I never prayed with such Gratitude after meeting P."
  • In district meetings we have talked about Hope, the Holy Ghost and finding, and this last week we talked about the Light of Christ. It is one of our mission focuses right now, and I have noticed some really cool things about how the scriptures talk about light. So we went over some stuff. It was a great one.

I got some decent pictures this last week, so I will go and send them today.

A few pictures of Zlín. Over by the bus stop, and the street we live on.

  • We went to a cool place with a Cathedral and some statues and actually a Catholic run school, that's the location where Christianity was first introduced to the Czech Republic. It is called Velehrad. 


 Sisters Ludlow & Hayden had already walked in when I took the picture.  Elder Gaudlin, Elder Raines, Elder Robinson, Elder Pickett

  • Last Friday was the Barum Czech Rally through the streets of Zlín. They closed off some traffic through the city, and there was a lot going on. We went out during our dinner hour to take a few pictures. They have it every year.

Some pictures of Zlín from the top of the tallest building. 
It's called Building 21, and we went up there this morning.

  • The parking space Elder Lovell parked in during our exchange in Brno. It was a great exchange, we got to visit a member family, teach a really great lesson, and do a little finding. Brno is an awesome city.

  • It's really weird to be the only missionaries in a city. Not used that at all. This is the first time in my mission this has happened.
  • This week we will get to go to Bratislava to have training with President Paul V. Johnson, who is the new Europe Area President. 

Have a great week!
