Elder Klosowiak departs for home!

It seems like yesterday that President was picking up Elder Klosowiak. Now is time to head home...this goes really fast. Elder Klosowiak has been serving in Gdansk and doing a great job. Elders Basha and Myler were on exchanges there and were able to drive him back to Warsaw. Before arriving at the Mission Home, they also stopped and visited Elder Klosowiak's 98 year old Grandmother who lives here in Warsaw. Before joining the Church over three years ago, Elder Klosowiak would come to Poland from Chicago and see cousins and family regularly.

Attending the good-bye dinner were the Office Elders. Elder Gudnason will be going back into the field next week for transfers. It was great to have these Elders in tonight. Lets see, Elder Myler has been in also for a few months... (let's not speculate!)

We need to keep a piece of Elder Klosowiak so everyone who comes into the Mission Home will remember this great Elder. Now remember, we give him something in return so it's not just a one way thing...

We followed this up with a great testimony meeting. These are great missonaries. Elders Gudnason and Dopp are doing a great job in the mission office. Elder Klosowiak still needed to do some last minute packing, and then it was off to bed. This morning we woke up at 3:15am to get to the airport for him to catch a 6:00am flight to Amsterdam and then home to Chicago.

We will miss this great Elder. He was a great missionary and will always be a great missionary. We love him and know he will continue to do great things in months and years ahead. We thank his parents and family for supporting him during the greatest time of his life.
