Quiet in Prague

After twelve hours of sleep (that's what jet lag will do for you sometimes!), Dave and I were up early this morning to head out into Prague.

Walking through a very quiet Old Town, we headed over to the US embassy to apply for a new passport for me.

I can hardly remember a time when the city was so quiet, with so few people!

It almost felt like we had the Charles Bridge to ourselves!

After the fastest appointment ever at the embassy, we continued on with our other reason in Prague: to find a new location for our JV marriage conference in 2019.

Back in 2010, we led our first marriage conference for the JV team, in the city of Krakow. We did another one in 2013, and again in 2016. Even though our next conference is still over a year away, because we've grown in size, we need to find a new location that will handle up to 150-175 couples for our next conference.

That's a good problem to have!

Having already scoped out the possibilities of hotels that could handle that many, Dave and I walked 14 km (a little less than 9 miles) throughout the day in search of just the right place.

And wouldn't you know, it was the very last one on the list that looks like it's "THE" place!

While it's not "King's Court" (pictured above...what a cool hotel...just not big enough for us!), the one we found is pretty special! We now begin the task of making all the arrangements for that very special event.

As a hint, it's right off Vaclavske Namesti, the main square/street in Prague!

I am so excited about our couples coming to Prague for a time of deep investment into their marriages. There are so many nooks and crannies in this city that will give them space to talk and process all that they'll learn.

Already starting to pray for God's agenda during those days!
