It was soo good to see you the other day. I sure am grateful for technology and all the geniuses out there who create things like skype. Christmas day came and went real fast. It was so warm that day too. The sun was shining and it felt like it was the middle of April. It didn't even feel like Christmas. Ha until a couple days ago when it finally snowed and turned to -4.3 degrees C which is like -teens in F I think.
The day after Christmas they have what is called "Boxing Day" It is a legit holiday where everyone stays inside and they box up all of their christmas decorations or so we assume. On this holiday President advised us to hit the streets and sing some carols and contact the few souls that are roaming the streets. It was freeeezzzingg. We sang mostly to the pigeons and the few czechs that braved the cold weather with us. ha ha It was fun though. We were able to plant a few seeds in those we did talk with.
On sunday one of our Recent converets named Lukas showed up to church and stayed all three hours. This was a christmas miracle. The sisters met with him about twice a week last transfer and he would always say he would come to church but then would always come up with an excuse for his absence. We called him Saturday night but he didn't answer so we weren't really expecting him to show up, but then there he was! We visited him after church and he told us how he sees a difference when he comes and when he doesn't. His friend Martin is back from America and they live next to each other. So we are hoping that Martin being back will help get Lukas to church each week andd also help him work towards getting the Melchezidek Priesthood.
Our investigator Pavel Jelenek will be getting baptized this coming Saturday! We had a really good lesson with him last night with a couple of members in the branch. They were able to share experiences of how the Gospel has helped shape their lives and how it's not about being perfect before baptism or even after baptism. It was an awesome lesson and I think it helped Pavel ease his nerves.
Well that's it for now! Have a great week!
Love you all so much. Thank you for all that you do for me!
