A Short Report

07 July 2014

Family, that langoše looks delicious! Haven´t learned to cook it myself (a bit time consuming for missionaries…), but the cities here are dotted with booths selling the yummy, greasy things. *Langoše is the plural form of langoš, a gorgeous, fried  flatbread. The texture and flavour is rather similar to that of a funnel cake, hot doughnut, or the best deepdish pizza crust you’ve ever had in your life. It is a savoury dish, typically eaten with crushed garlic, cheese, and ketchup. It’s fabulous.

Our sweet friend Denisa made this massive platter of delicious langoše for our family! We had to send Sestra Jones a picture, so she could enjoy them with her eyes :)

This week Sestra B and I were prompted to ask ourselves the question of whether all those lessons we were teaching were motivated by our purpose (to bless and lift others by bringing them closer to Christ), or simply out of wanting to report good numbers. It took some of the wind out of our sails (as did the rigorous travelling: to Bratislava and Prague and Bratislava and finally back home), but we’ve been blessed with miracles nonetheless!

Making "spectacles" of themselves: A bit of fun to brighten up the long journey to Prague.

Our exchange with the sisters in Blava was rushed, but lovely really: Sestra BMin and I were together once again (they were companions in the MTC, and again in Žilina for a couple of months last year). Two ladies we taught in an outlying city accepted baptismal dates (a mother and daughter). Leadership Council in Prague was exciting: Sestra B and I will be in charge of running an entire hour of training in Bratislava this month!

Celebrated 4th of July with Elder and Sister Wr, that was fun.

Love notes from Heavenly Father: one day we were so discouraged, just feeling rejected and having a rough contacting block. Then we found Rosy, a gorgeous 14-year-old from Shropshire whom we taught to pray. 🙂 L and JM progressing. We feel really blessed. ❤

Love you!  Sestra Jones
