Busy Days

The days run together to the point that I sometimes rely on the dates on photos to remind me of the “where and when.” It was good to be back in Prague on a Sunday with the brethren. We had a great crowd, I picked up a new study, we had a potluck after our assembly,...

Time Flying By

To say the last two weeks have been a whirlwind would be a gross understatement. Our work on the Bible study website moved from the office to the field location for a few quick days. That means we traveled to Israel- primarily to shoot some videos for the website...

Brno Lecture

This was a Brno weekend, so that meant back on the road. I always look forward to being there with the brethren with whom we have such a long and dear history. Waiting on the tram caused me to reflect on how much difference the time change made here. It was basically...

A Few Notes

The last days have been filled with great opportunities and some wonderful news. I’ve had more time to spend with some of the younger people here, including traveling to a city in the north to watch one of them play a club level basketball game. I also spent a weekend...

What a Week!

An absolutely extraordinary week came to an end, and I was not only still upright, but thankful and a little awed by the fact this is the work that I am privileged to do. Counting the formal teaching opportunities, I had 14 hours of teaching time. If I threw in the...

Daily Life

A furniture assembly party can be a great thing. No “soul food” here. Cornbread and collards not to be found. For all your magic/witchcraft needs… Obviously, we are cool… The line outside a help center for Ukrainian refugees is a reminder of...

Random Notes

On a few other notes, the international Skype study has restarted with a series of lessons on the theme of “the city” in the Bible. Participation has been great, and there was a request that we record the studies so people can go back and either listen to them again...

A Ukrainian Brother

I decided I did not need to wait until life calmed down a little to post a few updates. One of the more interesting and exciting opportunities of the past few days came courtesy of Lonnie Fritz. He contacted me about a Ukrainian man who is living about an hour by...

Zderaz Study

The weekend study in Zderaz to help men develop their study and teaching skills was a huge success by any metric. Seven different men ranging in ages from their early 20’s to mid 50’s spoke. The assignment was to pick an obscure passage to develop and present in a...

Back in the CR

Arriving in Prague on Monday and then heading out to Brno for the weekend made the time in Prague short. Thankfully, it was productive with several hours of studies as well as some time for me to prepare for some upcoming efforts. Busy days are about to get even...
