February 9, 2015 - In which Brno becomes a windy icicle

Dear family,

Last week we had some crazy weather! The beginning of the week we had pretty nice, warm days, but last Friday a crazy windstorm arrived. The winds were about as strong as the Santa Ana winds ever get back home, but freezing cold. Saturday was a nicer day (cold but not windy), but Saturday night while we were sleeping a huge snow storm arrived, and the wind returned. When we woke up, we could barely make the houses across the street from us! We made it to church, where we all stared out the windows during Sacrament Meeting at the swirling snow. The storm let up a bit before lunch, which was good because we spent most of the day outside.

Last week we found a couple of new investigators. S and K are both YSA, and they have really interesting opinions. S is from Serbia and believes that Christianity is a strong force for good and grew up in a Christian home, but doesn't believe that God actually exists. K doesn't have a strong religious background, but considers himself spiritual and takes different ideas from different world philosophies and ideas that he likes. We're excited for them to make progress.

I don't have much more time, but I'm doing well! We're trying to press forward on, and have been spending a lot of time out talking, tracting, etc.

This doesn't give you the full scope of the storm the we had (I had a video of it but it's too big to send) but it was snowing really hard and really windy over the weekend!

​The storm suddenly stopped just before this photo, but this was from walking from church to lunch with some members
