Our New Missionaries have Arrived!
Tonight we welcomed 9 new Missionaries to Poland. We have been excited to meet this great group. We were not disappointed...they came off the plane all smiles, excited to finally get here AND ready to do missionary work! That's what we love to see! So, let's meet them...
Elder Skolmoski comes from Polish descent on both sides of his family and has relatives living near Warsaw. He is from Murray, Utah.
Sister Howells has lived in many places (including Holland) but calls Payson, Utah home now.
Here is Sister Allen. She is from Provo, Utah...
...as is Elder Rittmanic.
The midwest is represented by Elder Bokinsky who is from Pella, Iowa.
Sister Ostler comes to Poland from Riverton, Utah.
Elder Register is our Missionary who represents the southern states from Fayetteville, North Carolina. His Polish has got a bit of a southern drawl to it.
From West Jordan, Utah comes Elder Raines.
What a great group! These new missionaries will fit right in with our hard-working Elders and Sisters of the Poland Warsaw Mission.
After collecting everyone (and their stuff) we make our way through the parking lot looking a little like a parade....
...to the transporter and 2 other cars that are waiting to shuttle these Missionaries to the Mission Home. It was a tight squeeze, but we were able to get all the luggage to fit!
At the Mission Home, President had short interviews with everyone, we took a tour of the mission home and had a homecooked meal. After that, everyone was ready for bed. That's a good thing. Tomorrow is a big day....their 1st FULL day in Poland, and there is much to do. To all their parents who are anxiously awaiting news of their arrival....your missionaries are here, they are happy and we love them already!
