We met at 10:00 to worship on Sunday. The number was good but the mood was somber. Mr Matousek has cancer. Given his age and the health care system, the prognosis doesn’t look good. Kamila was at the service with her baby. She still attends with some regularity. It was great to sing in Czech again. I was able to continue a lesson I started a couple of weeks ago. After the assembly, we went to lunch with Jan and Hana. Lucy, who had made the drive up from Slovakia joined us for a bit. After lunch, I put Nancy and the kids on a train for Prague. My evening ended with a testy discussion with another Egyptian Muslim who is busily spreading his message here in Brno. The last picture is one of a “soup kitchen”-Brno style. A difficult economy has a fundamental impact in this part of the world.
