Magdalena's Family Blog

Hrad Kokořín

Project Antioch went on a retreat a couple of weekends ago but I'm just now getting around to blogging on our castle visit while we were there. We stayed in a pension in the same village as the castle Kokořín. Zdeněk (Czech) and Basia (Polish), fresh back from the COG Theological Seminary, are the PA pastors in training. They are fun-loving (as you can see in this photo), very caring, and always willing to have a chat. Plus they're prayer warriors! We are all super excited to see what God does through them here in the Czech Republic.
Mirka (PA's translator, financial adviser, activity coordinator, and etc.) and Krýštof (her super cute and sweet son) often are at PA services but we were extra blessed and happy to have Matouš (Mirka's husband/Krýštof's dad) with us too.
Here's a family shot just before we crossed the moat bridge into the castle courtyard. The weather was a bit drizzly but Magdalena didn't care because she could sport her flowery raincoat!
And, finally, for my Momma because she said she likes seeing me too: here I am with the great castle! We climbed to the top of the non-spired tower behind me...and I almost got sick coming down the stairs because I could see down several flights through the stairs' openings. Good thing that Petr carried Magdalena up and down the tower!

Looks like everyone is having a great time! I could use a retreat about now!
