We had quite the week! We had a wedding, interesting meetings on the street, and once again I don't know how much I'll be able to tell you all about it!
The wedding was on last Friday in a little town at the foot of the tallest mountain in the Czech Republic (which has the pititable elevation of 1602 m/5255 ft). I'm not allowed to say whose wedding it was unfortunately, because I've been sworn to secrecy concerning it! It was a really small ceremony, other than the couple only Elder Bushnell and I and two others were there. It was still quite nice, and they're excited to be able to get to the Temple in (an undisclosed amount of time because that would give away whose wedding it was!) Since I also can't send photos from the wedding itself, I sent some of the town and mountains :)
I've received some questions about P, V, P, and B. P is still on date for this Saturday! He still has to have his interview on Tuesday, so we don't know for sure if it will happen, but at the moment we're planning to have it at a pond or in one of the rivers that run through Hradec since it's getting quite warm now (even when we have spring rain and thunderstorms like today).
V is doing so well! When Elder Bushnell met her about six weeks ago, she didn't even really believe in God at all, but now she feels His presence when she tries to pray and is already about a third of the way into the Book of Mormon, which are all impressive. Her baptismal date was originally the same as P's. We've pushed it back three weeks to the 24th of May because of some complications with school, etc for her. She's making progress in leaps and bounds, though, and it's really exciting to see.
Unfortunately we haven't been able to meet with Pa and B over the past week due to some illness. We're not sure how P is doing exactly, but B has told us how she's always reading in the Book of Mormon, which is super exciting to hear! We're excited to be able to meet with them again.
We're doing quite well here in Hradec Králové. Unfortunately last week was abit slower, but we're excited to be able to work another week! One thing that I love about the gospel is that it's a gospel of giving it another try! We've set some good goals for our work and I have also personally so this will be a great week. (Have any of you seen the Christlike Attributes Self-Assessment inPreach My Gospel? That's FANTASTIC tool for self-improvement.)
Thank you so much for your prayers! I hope you have a great a week.
PS Also attached are some of the fabulous gifts that the Bells gave Elder Bushnell and I; we love having the Bells with us in HK.
