Hey everybody!
This week we did another "Uklidme Cesko" service project and we ran into a bunch of cows so of coarse I sat down and chilled with them for a while. We had a bbq with all of the people after and they were all interested in our church and why we are here. It was pretty fun. It was snowing on Wednesday but we had the town square reserved to put a tv out and blast the Easter video so we still did it even though it was snowing. We had it echoing throughout the whole center of Mistek and so many people stopped to watch and talk with us.
We didn't have any contact with the mom that has a baptismal date and she didn't come to church so we were freaking out all week trying to figure out what to do but finally on Sunday we prayed that we would see her outside with her kids and after a little while of waiting outside in the pouring rain we finally see her walk by so we went and talked to her and had a good lesson. She was having a pretty rough week and was scared to talk to us because she wasn't sure if she was ready for baptism but we talked with her and figured everything out. Also we called our guy in prison to see how his court date went and from the sounds of it he is getting deported so we are going to go visit him this week and see what is going on. We also came out of the train station the other day and there were 3 elephants just eating this tree. So we went and got some pictures of them then went home. Pretty interesting stuff happens here... It was a way stressful week with all of that but it ended alright.

We also went with Bishop to bless the sacrament at an elderly couples home and they gave us this drink that tastes and smells like coffee but it doesn't have coffee beans or caffeine. Elder Andrus looked a little confused but drank it anyways so I decided to wait until he was about half way done then I leaned over and said hey don't drink that, its coffee. He freaked out and was like I thought I heard Bishop said the word coffee but I wasn't sure, I thought it was just funny tasting hot chocolate! Finally I told him I was just joking and that it wasn't coffee and he felt a lot better. haha he was so confused why Bishop and 2 members were giving us coffee!

So that reminded me of a cool blessing that Elder Packer received while in the military about our bodies.
“You have been given a body of such physical proportions and fitness as to enable your spirit to function through it. … You should cherish this as a great heritage. Guard [it] and protect it. Take nothing into it that shall harm the organs thereof because it is sacred. It is the instrument of your mind and [the] foundation of your character.”

Have a great week and stay healthy.
