Elder and Sister Curtis arrive 27 Sep 2011

The Curtis' have arrived from the Mission Training Center and are ready to serve. They come from Sandy, Utah.
Receiving instructions from our new Office Couple, the Pecks, the Curtis' are now ready to get everything in order to start serving. They are assigned to Warsaw and will help run the Center for Young Adults. They will also serve in the Warsaw ll Branch as Member Leadership Support missionaries.
There is also a transfer happening tomorrow for some of our great Senior Missionaries. Elder and Sister Richards (who have had many assignments: office couple, YSA leaders and Elder Richards was released last Sunday as the Branch President in the Warsaw II Branch) are preparing for their transfer to Poznan. They are getting their bags packed ready to serve the members in that great city and Branch.
Back to the Curtis'...
After the Curtis' learned some of the things that will get them going, it was off for pictures for their "residence cards" and a visit to the Mall. President and Elder Curtis are looking at mobile Internet options at the Plus store (like AT&T or Verizon in the States)...
Meanwhile it was Sister Curtis' turn to take a tour of the grocery store and the customs of shopping in a new environment. She is selecting some of the delicious rolls and bakery of the best things about Poland!
As we finished at the Mall and headed back to the Mission Office, we saw one of our favorite sights of the month- our order of Books of Mormon had arrived. Our standard shipment is just under 700 copies each month not counting 'add on' orders we need and copies in other languages.
Here our great Office Elders begin carrying all of this shipment up to the 2nd floor (in Poland that would be the 1st Floor since the ground floor is Zer0). They are such a great help.
After getting everything in order, Elders Sheridan and Johnson explained the process of applying for a "residence card" in Poland. These take the place of a Visa and are good for 2 years.
Finally, the Elder and Sister Curtis arrive at their 'Home Away From Home'. They can now unpack, get ready for English Classes (tonight!) and everything else they will soon have going on. It is such a blessings to have Elder and Sister Curtis here. We love our missionaries and all that each one does. Our younger missionaries are out tonight working hard and talking to everyone. This is such a great blessing to be in Poland, on a mission and to see what wonderful things are taking place. We love these wonderful Polish people and the special souls they are. Welcome to the Poland Warsaw Mission Curtis'!
