We went and worked in a garden of an older man who is awesome and speaks slovak and English. He tells me to thank you Dad for making me learn how to work outside. When we were coming pack after service something had happened on the road and there were a lot of cars and trucks waiting a huge line but luckely we had a great bus driver that took us all on a little adventure/ Detour. Still made it home on time it was great.
Traveling the visit our investigator and while the other elders from Banska made the train we missed it but it all turned out great because we took the next one, taught him and made it back in time to meet with a member. On the train ride back we started talking with a man and he started talking about his life and how it is very hard he has had a lot of hard times with his family and everything but he does painting in cathidroles so that was realy cool to hear about. We started teaching him about the book of mormon and have way through the pictures in front he was like that is the kind of pictures i paint, The one of Alma Baptizing people, It hit me hard as a brick as soon as he said that that I hadent been teaching the man I had been teaching a lesson. He got up to us the WC and I just thought about what had just hit me. Soon her returned and I decided that it was time for me to listen and teach him by example. we opened up to a scripture about burdens being lightened by the Lord and shared that with him. The moment after he read that the spirit just filled the compartment. We gave him a book of mormon and he gave us his number to give to other Elders in the City he was headed to. It was a miracle and a learning moment for me.
Yesterday while tracting there was a man that let us in. He is an amazing man. He is old and had so much to tell us. Recently we have started putting letters in mail boxes saying that we will be coming on this day at this time and a little bit about us who we are and such and this man had read it. We talked about the restoration and about how God works and we heard some amazing Faith filled stories from him of his life through the war and how he remembered Hittler pulling out all the Jews, this man was not a jew, and how he lost family member after family member. It was amazing because when all was said and done he said in the End God was the only way i was able to make it through. I have never seen such faith in someone so strong. Hopefully we can go visit him again soon. He was so cool. and it really helped me think of what these people have gone through
We ment so many amazing people here and have been able to teach some amazing men and have excepted Baptismal Dates. We are working on getting an interview in line for our investigator who will be baptized on the 4 of April and he is willing to wake up and be on a train at 5 23 in the morning so that he can travel to Bratislava with us. He is so amazing. WE have an awesome training for slovakia members coming up and I can't wait. I will tell you more about that next week
until then I hope all is well and that you know you are in my prayers,
