The YSA's head to the Regional Conference in Hungary!

Monday night...YSA's from around the central/northern parts of Poland start gathering at the Wolska chapel. A bus is starting from Warsaw and traveling to Katowice to pick up the rest of our YSA's there....and then it's on to Hungary for the Young Single Adult annual regional conference. Pictured above: Marta (Warsaw), Adam (Katowice) who is on his way home from a vacation in Gdansk and met the train in Warsaw, Sebastian (Lodz), Dominika (Lodz), Agnieszka (Warsaw) and Magda (Lodz).
'Lublin' showed up with Cody and Jasmine representing that great Branch. Cody is the Branch President there and does a great job.
'Bydgoszcz' was well represented with Kyle, Otis, Ewa and Oskar.
Michol (new convert), Martyna and Gracja from the Kielce Branch.
The bus rolled in, Marta-our Warsaw YSA President, started directing traffic!
Our YSA's have got a long trip ahead of them....but they are excited none the less! Everyone quickly shoves their luggage under the bus and boards. On the road to Katowice to pick up the rest of the group!
We made it to Katowice by 11:30 pm. and got (most!) everyone together for one group picture before boarding the bus again...this time for Hungary. This year we have 31 Polish YSA's attending the conference. They are excited and ready to meet new people and be 'spiritually' fed with all the great classes and fun activities that await them. GO POLAND!
On the bus (again!)...this time for the night. When they wake up, they will be in Hungary and ready to have a blast for the next few days! Meanwhile....
We had an opportunity to visit with two of our great YSA couples....the Jensens (left) who run the YSA Center in Warsaw and the McGraths (right) who run the YSA Center in Katowice. We thank these two couples for all they do to help strengthen these young single adults in the church. They truly are mentors and are having a great positive influence on these young lives.
Having rode the bus down with the YSA's...we and the Jensens hopped on a train in Katowice to get back to Warsaw. Yes, the train station is still very torn up...but they ARE making progress. When finished, the Katowice train station will be wonderful! We can't wait! AND we can't wait to hear how the YSA conference went .... good things are happening all over this country! We love serving here in Poland!
