Life for us in the Czech Republic continues. The winter here isn't nearly as bad as what we are seeing, and hearing about back in Logan, UT. The big difference here is that we don't have a car so we are actually out in the weather all of the time. We have learned to dress like a Czech, and we are able to stay fairly warm. We are very grateful for a nice warm apartment where we are quite comfortable and cozy.
Here is Zuzu Kolek and her partner (I don't know his name. Maybe later I can add it). Zuzu was the person who planned and organized the dance. She just turned 18 and she is wonderful. Her English is excellent and translates a lot for us.
Brother and Sister Kubala.
Daniel Kolek (Zuzu's brother) (girl not from our branch so I don;t know her name).
President and Sister Řea (Our Branch President)
Brother and Sister Kolek. Sister Kolkovi helps the missionaries with their Czech Language. She too is wonderful and we are so glad she is around. Brother Kolek was just sustained as 2nd counselor in the District Presidency. A GREAT FAMILY!!!
On Valentine's Day we were part of a very happy occasion. Two of our very good friends here in the Czech Republic got engaged. We are so happy for them. Congratulations Illona and Zdenek!!
Somtimes I think we as missionaries don't use very good judgement. Here is an example.....Singing in the Namesti....blizzard....freezing cold......not even the Czech people are out. What more can I say....you get the picture!!
Those smiles are actually frozen on our faces.
Our special guest that day was Elder Faustino Lopez, Area Seventy, from Madrid Spain. Here is Elder and Sister Mills with Elder Lopez. He gave a very inspiring talk on his conversion and how missionaries need to step up and be equal to the message they are giving to people. Very good day.
Investigators, missionaries, and members having a good time playing games.

February F.H.E. Group.
This is a wintry night in the Czech Republic. This is looking out of our front room window. We really do live on a lovely street. We are happy to be here and living where we do. February was a great month
Many of the Senior Couples we have become such good friends with are starting to go home. We want to say good-bye to Elder and Sister Bohne from Las Vegas, NV, and Elder and Sister Ostergaard from Colorado. They taught us so much while we were serving together. We will really miss them. Thank you for everything and enjoy being home again with your families.
