Kolin Here We Come...

Chris has already had 3 offers to play overseas we thought that would make the decisiondifficult but thankfully after a lot of prayer and pondering we signed the papers about a week ago.
We will be heading to the Czech Republic at the beginning of August and we seriously couldn't be more excited!!
(isn't it beautiful)
We will be living in a tiny town called Kolin (pronouces KOleen) which is only a 50 minute train ride from Prague. These last two pictures are of Kolin isn't it so picturesque.
We can't wait to explore the sites(Vienna Austria is only a 2.5 hours away)
With cobble stone streets and fresh market vendors and bakery's everywhere we can't wait.
Thankfully our church is only a 50 minute trained ride into Prague...we are very excited to ride the train into Prague every Sunday to attend church.


We are so grateful for the power of prayer! I completely believe in Moroni's promise when he tells us that if we pray with a sincere heart and real intent while exercise faith that we will receive an answer. Chris and I have always made it a point to have the realest of intent it makes life easier that way.
