Hello family

This is another email from brno we are here to do a zone activity on p-day.

This was a good week here in Trebic, we spent 2 days in Jihlava this week helping out the Elders there boost up their area and find some people for them to teach, it went really well and we were able to find alot of good people for them to start working with. We had three people bare their testimonys to us this week about Joseph smith and how they found out he was a prophet and the Book of Mormon is true they are Ana, Tomas this 19 year old young man and Vojetek this 17 year old stud. It is looking like all three will be getting baptized this month.

Tomas has been thinking about baptism and we read this talk with him from conference called you know enough and it really touched him, we asked him what he thought is the next step for him and he established some spiritual goals with us to 1 read the book of mormon 2 pray daily and 3 be baptised. Yesterday after church we came home and knocked on our neigbors door to see how they are doing, they are this older couple he had a stroke about 10 years ago and we have always been super nice to them, well they invited us in to hear about what we are doing here as missionarys and we shared a spiritual thought with them which they really enjoyed and they are excited for us to come back and share more with them.

There is a family here who bought an old house and are rebuilding it so we go over and do service once in a while, this last week we broke up the concrete floor of their living room with a sledge hammer and it was like a half sized sledge hammer so we were pretty sore after that, plus we had to shovel like 30 wheelbarrels worth of dirt so my little forearms were a little sore after that. but i always enjoy getting to do some physical service to mix things up.

We are working with alot of less activis here and we are seeing alot of success from it as their testimonies start to be rekindled, one of them reminds me of an 80’s rocker but he is starting to make some changes.

Here is a funny story, so we see this old guy with a big old beard in leather pants, leather jacket that says white zombie on the back a leather cowboy hat and a big rotwieler, we have seen him a couple of times so we decided to talk to him and we ask him what the most important thing in his life is and he said God we were both taken aback and he goes on to bare his testimony about God and than is like i am sorry i am in a hurry but i would love to talk to you some time, we saw him yesterday while we were hurrying to church and he remembered our names and yelled hi to us from across the street, I guess its true that you cant judge a book by its cover.

I read a article everyday from general conference and i read a great one yesterday about faith, it talks about how we can give our kids piano lessons, sports, toys, fun memories, but all these things add up to nothing if we dont give them Faith in Christ and I want to thank you mom and dad for raising me well and giving me all of those things but most of all for giving me that Faith in Christ.

This is our last week of our transfer here in Trebic so we are working hard to finish out with a bang.

I love you all and hope you have a great week


Elder Hatch
