Hey family and friends,

Another successful week has come and gone hopefully I can remember most of the good stuff to tell you about. Last night we had a great experience, last week I contacted a guy who turned out to be from Cuba, really nice and I got his number. He said he would like to meet, we tried to set up a few meetings but things kept coming up and then last night I called him and said could come on over to his place and meet his family. His name is jose and he is 23 and has only been in prague for 2 months or so studying. we got to his place and it was his dads birthday and they invited us in and were so nice to us his parents and older sister were there, the parents know a little czech but no english luckily we had brought finding faith in christ in spanish with us and they loved it. The mom and daughter are coming to church on Sunday. Unfortunatly, Jose and his dad have to work but they said that next week they will all come and they told us that we can come over to visit them any time we want. Fortunatly there is an American member here in Prague who served a mission to a spanish speaking mission so he is going to come help us out. (by the way spanish sounds really foreign now) In olomouc i bought a book learning Spanish from Czech so i might start studying that.

So april fools was this week, and Elder Mittanck and I played a joke on the mission. There had been rumors going around that Elder Holland is going to come here to visit, he is pen pals with Sister Slovacek and he told her he was going to try and make it out here before they go home. So we sent a text message to the whole mission saying that Elder Holland is coming to visit on april 28th and that we will be having a mission conference in Prague because of it. About half the missionaries sent back texts saying haha real funny its April fools day, quite a few missionaries believed it but then we sent out a text a few hours later clearing it up. President Slovacek saved us from a joke by Sister Slovacek, she was going to steal our car and hide it on the other side of town so we would think it had gotten stolen.

This last week we went out tracting by the branch presidents house because we want to get a solid family, they live a little outside of town in a really nice neighborhood. We went out and there were all these chautouxes and villas out there it was pretty interesting tracting. This whole week we were in prague which was a nice change to get our area going solid again. The one bad thing about prague is that about 50% of the people are not czechs but are from other countries so we have quite a few non-czechs we are teaching right now. We will be having general conference here next weekend so I am looking forward to that and hearing all of the great talks. Today we are going to play tourist for the day and go see all of the sights in Prague since it is sunny weather.

Oh funny story from Elders Quoroum last week at church, the lesson was on elder bednars talk from last conference on family and part of the talk he said we need to tell our family we love them more often. The teacher said we always hear that we need to tell our spouse and family that we love them more often so the problem probably has not been fixed, so he had everybody turn to the person next to them and practice telling them that you love them a few times, I got a good laugh out of that. So don't forget to tell your family and spouse that you love them. Have a great week and I love you all you are the greatest family a person could ask for.
