Also this week was full of a lot of goodbyes but it wasn't until we were saying goodbye to the strong members of the Jicin ward, that I cried. not me alone but even the members. There was such a different spirit at church. Something about the testimonies that were shared, touched all of our hearts and that same spirit carried us throughout the meetings. I was so overwhelmed with joy when I bore my testimony that I think my smile was what brought me to tears. I love the Czechs. I was sent here to serve them and they in return changed my life and I will always be in debt to what they taught me. Not only did the Czechs themselves show me how to apply the gospel into life but Heavenly Father has proved multiple times that he knows these people personally. I am forever in his debt and will always rely on Jesus Christ, my Savior when I need help. I can not deny what I have experienced and what I have felt to be true. This is the true church, God and Jesus Christ live, and I love it all. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
See you all soon friends, I cant wait to hug you all!
Note: We were able to pick up Melanie at the mission office in Prague, and then have another welcome at the Phoenix airport on her return. It is so nice to be reunited.
