Here's what happened:
Monday: We went to the Gdansk zoo near Park Oliwski. It was so fun! I don't know if any of you have seen the video of Snoop Dogg narrating Planet Earth, but that is what this field trip was like with Elder Dooley. Snoop Dool?
Tuesday: Went to Bydgoszcz for exchanges. I spent Tuesday with Sister Groesbeck--we did some family history work and taught a lesson or two.
Wednesday: Spent the day with Sister Larsen. Taught the cutest 15 year old girl who looks about 10 years old. She is sooo tiny! She is a self referral and seriously is the definition of golden. We taught her the Plan of Salvation and gave her a baptisimal date--June 17! She accepted. Ah! Miracles are happening in this mission!
Thursday: Traveled from Bydgoszcz to Poznan for Zone conference. We talked a lot about what we learned during the Elder Anderson conference. Here are a few of my notes:
-"thy faith hath made thee whole"
-Our faith allows God's power to come into our life--> the more faith, the more miracles!
-Sometimes, our faith needs to be tested!
-It takes faith in every step--maybe more, or different effort.
-Study, Ponder, Apply--the learning cycle!
-Pondering: time to think and receive revelation, learn through and with the Holy Ghost.
-"Look at people the way Elder Curtis looks at deer"
-How do we sanctify ourselves? Repentance!
After zone conference, we rode back to Gdansk.
Friday: Woke up at 4 to be at the Dworzec byfor our train to Warsaw for legal work. I went on splits with Sisters Hammond and Gheen (whose trainees were also doing legal work). It was fun to contact around my old city! Warsaw will always have a special place in my heart. We got unexpectedly stuck in Warsaw for the day and night--so we got to spend the day finding and teaching in Warsaw (no complaints from me, I got to see some familiar faces in my favorite place!). It was especially nice to see squaaaaaa. It was so nice to be around so many missionaries again!
Saturday: We got the earliest ticket back to Gdansk. Got back into the swing of normal missionary work. Went and had a lesson with a member and washed her dishes!
Sunday: 4 people in church! Wooo! Awkward fast and testimony meeting to say the least. It really amazes me, though....the Spirit can be so strong, even with only 4 members there! There may not be many in Poland, but they sure are mighty!
