The Czech Republic
Luke & Megan Adams serve as Global Partners missionaries in the Czech Republic. They write with the following update….
Winter and sickness seem to go hand-in-hand here. The past two months have brought us one cold and flu after another. Our house has been a mess of kids and parents lying around, moaning, groaning and sometimes crying. As our bodies continually adjust to the environment of a different continent, we suppose this is part of life! However, something amazing happened during all of these sleep and recovery hours. Luke woke up once, and realized that during his dream, he had been speaking Czech to the persons in his dream! Fellow missionaries tell us that this is a sign of truly learning the language. So we thank God for that.
Another encouraging sign to us was a gift that Luke’s floorball/hockey team unexpectedly gave him last month; a jersey for the local hockey team in Prague. We took this great gift as another sign that we have built meaningful relationships with our non-believing friends here.
Thank you for remembering us in your prayers and your giving. You are a great support to us. As we begin our second year here in the Czech Republic, we look forward to what God will do in the year ahead. God bless you all.
