On Sunday I worshipped with the folks in Brno. It was the first time I have seen Mrs. Matousek since her husband died. Watching her walk alone towards me was very emotional. Her spirits were good and we were able to discuss things for a while before services started. Having the Fojt family in Toronto has been a special challenge for the group. They were able to join in with out worship via Skype. Jan led the singing. It was an amazing experience. I thought about all the changes Mrs. Matousek has seen in her life- born in a prosperous democracy, witnessed Hitler’s invasion, experienced the Russian domination, and now worshipping in freedom.
As soon as it ended, I sped to the train station to travel to Bratislava for a group study. However, much to my chagrin, the train was delayed about an hour. We are rescheduling.
