Mission City List 13 Jan 2009
Hello again...
Does anyone out there (like someone who just got home) have an updated list of current Mission Cities. I never even had a complete list on the site, but would like to have one. If anyone would like to take the task to write a brief "article" about one of the cities, I would be more than happy to let you. You would just need to do one (more if you'd like). I've been away for awhile, so my resources are limited.

Website Cleanup 13 Jan 2009
Hi there...
I'm going to be going through the site and do some housekeeping very soon. I'll be deleting old messages, deleting bounced emails and doing some slight modifications to layout and such (you probably noticed the beginning of this on the front page).

Anyway, if there is anything that you need from the message or news section of the site prior to 2008, please make a copy for yourself somewhere because I'm going to clean it up. I'll try to figure out how to make an archive copy of all the messages, but for practical purposes, they'll be gone.

If you have feedback or suggestions, please contact me.

Exchange Student Families 17 Apr 2008
Dear Friends,

Congratulations to the Toronto Foundation for their wonderful accomplishments over the past five years! It’s exciting to see so many successes from the efforts of Czech members, returned missionaries, and friends.

I’m writing with an update on our Czech student exchange program. As many of you know, we have had seven high school students come to Utah for a semester of school over the past year. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience for the students, their host families, and all who have come in contact with them. They have had opportunities to improve their English, experience a different culture, and build lasting relationships.

We are excited to inform you that a group of seven Czech students will be arriving in the fall. These students will stay for a full year of high school, and will be joined by another group arriving in January for a semester-long stay. We are currently making arrangements for these students, and would ask for your assistance in finding good host families for them.

The students are both boys and girls from 15-17 years old. They are the best students and English speakers in their schools and have been carefully selected for this program. These students are not LDS, but are aware that they will be living in Utah, likely with LDS families. They each agree to live by a code of conduct during their stay that prohibits drinking, smoking, and inappropriate relations with the opposite sex. They also agree to follow rules specific to their host family.

If you are interested in hosting one of these students for the school year, or have any friends or family who may be interested, please contact Owen Fuller ( or myself. We are looking for families who are welcoming, kind, flexible, and financially able to support another person. We are open to considering families anywhere in Salt Lake or Utah Counties. Please contact us soon as we will be finalizing the host families in the next few weeks.

We’ve been very happy with the growth and success of this program. Thank you so much for your continuing support!

Wallace F Toronto Foundation - 5 Year Anniversary! 08 Apr 2008
The Wallace F. Toronto Foundation, a Utah-based public charity established to support community-based educational, goodwill, and humanitarian projects in the Czech and Slovak Republics, recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of its founding in April 2003. Over the last five years, the Foundation has raised more than $60,000 in funds from individual donors. Those funds have been used to facilitate and sponsor a wide variety of worthwhile and substantial projects in the Czech and Slovak Republics, including a highly-successful academic tutoring and mentoring center for underprivileged minority students in Prague, Czech Republic, the construction of a local park in Belusa, Slovakia, the official registration of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Slovakia in 2006, and several other projects in cooperation with reputable and trustworthy Czech and Slovak-based charities and municipalities.

Perhaps the most exciting development over the last five years has been the Foundation’s annual community-based service project. Building on the Foundation’s expertise displayed with the organization and execution of the official registration campaign of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Slovakia in 2006, the Foundation now organizes and sponsors an annual in-country community-based service project during the third week of September. In September 2007, the Foundation partnered with Caritas, the charitable arm of the Catholic Church in the Czech Republic, to provide more than 1,000 hours of volunteer labor and funds sufficient to provide much-needed medical equipment to two elder care facilities and one hospice in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

The annual project model helps foster and encourage broad community-level volunteer involvement. More than 130 volunteers from the U.S., the Czech Republic, and Slovakia - primarily members, former-missionaries, and missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - gathered in Ostrava to participate in last year’s service project. A commemorative book documenting this highly-publicized event was prepared and distributed to government, church and Caritas officials. The Foundation’s financial contribution to the Ostrava project helped procure all the needed project-related supplies such as paint, garden tools, equipment rentals, etc., purchase desperately needed medical supplies for Caritas, and provide overnight accommodations and meals to all of the volunteers and families who came to participate in the Ostrava project.

The Toronto Foundation appreciates all those who have lent their time and support. For additional materials or information regarding the Toronto Foundation and its work in the Czech and Slovak Republics, please visit the Toronto Foundation website at

Benefit Dinner and Auction Postponed 28 Mar 2008
Dear Friends,

We think that we have already let everyone know, but just in case you haven't heard yet, the benefit dinner and auction has been
postponed from the original March 29, 2008 date. The exact date is yet
to be set, but will most likely be in September 2008.

We are very excited about the direction things are going for the fundraiser event and appreciate your understanding and patience with us in regards to the date change. We made the decision to postpone the
event in order to make it larger and to enable some well known people to get involved who will help us promote it.

Thank you for your support and please contact us with any questions about this event.

Auction Invitation 07 Mar 2008
Dobry Den!
We are writing to remind you of the first annual benefit dinner and auction hosted by the Always Remember Foundation. This semi-formal event will take place on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at 5:30pm at the Elks Lodge in Provo (1000 S. University Ave.). The evening will include a nice dinner, a special musical performer, a silent auction including a variety of items ranging in price, and a live auction of higher ticket items. Some of the higher ticket items already donated for this event include a wedding gown, autographed pictures of Utah Jazz players, diamond earrings, paintings by Simon Dewey and Liz Lemon Swindle, a family portrait package, a convertible Cadillac, and two new pianos. Our M.C. for the event will be Brooke Walker, host of “Studio 5” on KSL TV. It should be a very enjoyable evening and we hope that you’ll be able to join us.
This fundraising event is intended not only for Czech return missionaries, but for anyone who may be interested in participating. Please invite any family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and business associates who may wish to attend. Tickets for this event are selling quickly, so we encourage you to respond soon to secure seats for you and your guests. Tickets for the evening are $30 each. Please contact Owen Fuller at 801-427-4352 or by email to arrange for your tickets (
All proceeds from the benefit dinner and auction will directly support the projects of the Always Remember Foundation. One of our projects is bringing members of the Church, who otherwise could not afford to come on their own, to Salt Lake City for General Conference. Members who have come through our program have expressed to us how much their testimonies have grown. One member said that his testimony grew more in the 10 days he spent here than in his entire life previous to his stay in SLC. Another project of ours is bringing students from the Czech Republic to Utah for a semester or two of high school. All of the students who have come benefited greatly from our program. Our efforts are also resulting in great relationships with government officials and others. This fundraising event will help us to pursue these and similar projects in an effort to enable returned missionaries, along with their friends and family, to serve and stay connected with the people and country they came to love as missionaries.
We hope to see you for this exciting evening, and wish you the very best.

If you are interesting in coming, please write to by Feb. 6 with your mailing address, along with the address of anyone else who you would like us to send an invitation to.

Elder Harrison Matthews 16 Jan 2008
I have just received the sadest of news, so brace yourself. Here is the note I received from a friend of his:

My name is Jordan Wilde. I see you are the creator of a group for the Czech Prague Mission. My friend Harrison Matthews served his mission there. I apologize for the bad news if you haven't heard (and if you knew him), but Harrison passed away this afternoon (Jan 16). Could you please let people in your group know (so those who knew him on the mission will know)?
He found out last August that he had leukemia, and had been in treatment since then. I can probably find answers to questions if you have people ask you. Thanks for doing this - I will probably send this message to other admins in the group.

I replied and asked him to email me about the funeral. I will let you know what I find out. Let's be sure to pray for the family. This has to be a hard time for all of them.

Continued Support & Partnership with Nová škola 03 Jan 2008
Subject Line: Toronto Foundation Announces Continued Support and Partnership with the Nová škola Foundation in Prague

The Toronto Foundation is pleased to announce its continued support and partnership with the Nová škola (New School) Foundation based in Prague, Czech Republic. In addition to its support of the Rozlety after-school mentoring program, the Toronto Foundation made a substantial contribution in December 2007 of textbooks and other reference materials to be used by Nová škola’s students.

Nová škola provides underprivileged children from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds the additional academic support and encouragement to succeed academically. Most Nová škola students are from the minority Romany community among whom illiteracy and drop-out rates are substantially higher than average in the Czech Republic.

For more information about Nová škola and the sponsorship efforts of the Toronto Foundation please visit the Toronto Foundation’s website at

The Toronto Foundation is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Salt Lake City, Utah that supports grassroots humanitarian and educational projects in the former Czechoslovakia. Established in March of 2003 by a group of returned missionaries, the Toronto Foundation has funded and sponsored numerous projects in the Czech and Slovak Republics in large part due to the generous tax deductible contributions of its friends and supporters.
