This past week we had a rather normal week. Training was the obvious highlight. Prezident McConkie had some announcements at the beginning. Included was the announcing of the new mission president. President Pohořelicky...something like that I think haha. This is HUGE because the church here is so strong that the Lord was able to call a CZECH HIMSELF to be the next Mission President! He lives in Třebič and is amazing. His wife is beautiful and they look awesome. Our whole mission is SOOOO excited!!! Then Prezident McConkie basically testified/taught about Joseph Smith. There is so much material against the man, the prophet Joseph Smith, that it was time we just refresh and reconvert ourselves on the TRUTH of the Prophet of the Restoration, Joseph Smith. It was amazing. Then, Sestra McConkie shared a great TED talk about power posing/faking it till you become it. Then the AP's taught about planning with investigators and keeping them involved in the entire teaching process, then more and more and HOLY COW ITS ALL JUST SO GOOD. I can't describe these things as well as they truly are. Forgive me.
We had branch conference which included Prezident McConkie and his wife, Elder Alder(a 70 from Holland) and his wife, and Prezident Tichon who is the Brno district prezident. This conference wasn't only amazing and full of beautiful testimonies and life experiences and power, BUT MIRACLES! We had an investigator kind of randomly show up and stay for all of conference, one of the less actives we are working with went to a ball on Saturday night and looooves her sleep-we told her how much of a big deal this was going to be and told her it was worth losing sleep-SHE CAME and loved it! Sestra Kolkova taught about self reliance and had wonderful teaching tactics with object lessons and examples. Yesterday was one of the best church services I have experienced on the mission.
This next transfer is going to be a spiritual adventure. I am going to help organize this area, find the right people, and build this branch. I'm ready for it, I hope my new companion is ready to hit the ground running!
