We had public lectures on Thursday and Friday. On Thursday, we used the venue we have used for years. It is a “salon” conference room in a well-known hotel in the center. Jozef made the arrangements. On Friday, we tried a different location. We held the lecture in a suburb of the city. The turnout on Thursday was about what we expected- very small. That is why they chose to experiment with a new location. Again the turnout was small, but this time we seem to have been sabotaged. A group of Jehovah’s Witnesses sat up a stand in front of the entrance to the lecture hall to be able to catch anyone going in. This group is highly unpopular here, so it appeared to be a significant deterrent. I think we will try the same location again at a later point. The Christians maintained a great attitude about it taking consolation from the fact they were working hard to plant the seed. Mrs. Matousek, now in her mid-80’s, made the long trip into town and up about thirty steps to be with us. Jan too care of the logistics.
