Last Sunday our little church welcomed three new members. It was heart warming to see Pavlik, Klarka, and Jana in front of the congregation, answering the membership questions. We’re looking forward to what God will do through these dear ones as they use their gifts in support of the work here.

A couple of years ago, our team decided to host several Ladies’ days each year. These are designed to bring the ladies in our church together with their un-churched friends and neighbors for some fellowship, fun, and a brief introduction to the gospel. Just a week ago, we offered another ladies’ day and about fifteen women came. The atmosphere was warm and encouraging, the food was delicious, and Annette’s talk was well received.

The leaves are really showing off right now. We’ve had a beautiful fall. The countryside around Zlin is full of stunning views. During a hike around the city to take in some of that beauty, I ran across an interesting memorial to 19 men who had been part of the Czech resistance in World War II. These men gave their lives for the freedom of their country. The brief explanation of the monument ends with these words, “They did not hesitate to sacrifice their lives for our future. We thank you.” This eulogy was a little reminder of Christ’s work for us.
