Brno Lecture

On Thursday I traveled to Brno to do a lecture on the “oneness” of marriage. The brethren put a great deal of thought and preparation into the topic and advertising. Though in her mid-80’s, Anetka played a big part in this. She worked to spread the ads and then made the trek to attend. For her that meant a 1/4 mile walk to the tram stop, a 20 minute ride, nearly another 1/4 of a mile walk to the lecture hall, and a climb of about 40 stairs to the room. The Christians were pleased with the lecture and the number of visitors. It left them excited about the next time I can be with them.

Hodanko’s hospitality

Wednesday I was blessed to be able to spend a few hours with Robert, Tami, and the kids. The children are delightful and treat me like a long lost uncle. As usual, Tami prepared a great meal for us to share. We laughed and talked about many things. We also spent time in deeply contemplative spiritual discussion. They are truly a blessing.

Great Start

The trip was pleasant and uneventful. The connections were great, and I flew the new 777. Wow, what a plane! I also managed to sleep a couple of hours between the time I left Dallas Sunday evening at 7 and arrived in Prague at 2 PM on Monday. As I exited the customs area, I was delighted to see Honza’s smiling face. He took me to his home where I enjoyed the company of his wonderful family, great conversation, and a home cooked meal. That was topped off with a couple of hours of serious Bible study before I checked into my accommodations and began to settle in. A trip to the grocery store to get some of my favorite Czech bread and a visit to the mobile shop to sort out my SIM card got me comfortably settled in. It was a good day.
