One of the holidays the Czech people observe is Mikulash day. It falls on the 6th of December. St Mikulash goes from house to house along with a demon and an angel. If the children sing for this trio, they can receive a small gift. If they have been disobedient, they get coal. So you see it falls somewhat in line with the Santa Clause story some people observe in America. We had some tracts printed specifically for this holiday and handed them out that day, along with an invitation to church. We gave some of the tracts to young Maty Mazgut, who in the 2nd grade. He intended on handing them out at school. He boldly went to all his classmates and attempted to give out the tracts but not one child was willing to take the material. Every one of them said that they don’t believe the legend about the existence of God. We praise the Lord that he was courageous enough to take the tracts and try to hand them out.
We had been praying that our personal outreach, tract distribution, along with the Facebook ads would bring out a larger group of people on Christmas day, however, we did have two returning visitors which had not attended in a long time. The children performed a puppet play. I preached on the virgin birth and then we had a wonderful meal prepared by my incredible wife.
