Quarterly CCM held in Krakow.

It's time again for the  Cordinating Council Meeting where Elder Schutze our Area Authority Seventy instructs the Mission Presidents and District Presidents of the Poland and Czech Republic Missions.  This time the meeting was held in Krakow.  Pictured Above:  Standing:  District Presidents from the Czech Republic, President Irwin, Elder Schutze, President Nielson and President Dressler (Warsaw District President).  Kneeling:  President Pawlik (Katowice District President) and President Krzykawski (1st Co. Katowice District).
Sister Irwin came over with her husband this time.  We have been friends since the Mission President's Seminar at the MTC.  We both can't believe that we are in our 3rd and final year of this great calling.  It has gone by so fast! do you feed a group of men when you are far away from home???
You call on a great Senior Couple!!! And that's what I did!  Elder and Sister McGrath brought a fabulous lunch from Katowice where they are serving.  We had plenty of help getting everything put together.
Having the CCM at the chapel in Krakow, we happened to run into 4 very hard working Missionaries.
Elder Walter (District Leader) and Elder Register and....
Elder Zelezniak and Elder Szymanski who are all currently serving in Krakow.  What are they up to?
They are going to hit the streets and do a 'white board'.  They have found the perfect spot where they plan on contacting many people this Saturday afternoon.  And that's what they did!
Elder Zelezniak explaining that the gospel principles have been restored to the earth.
Elder Register asking a young man what he thinks about God.
Elder Walter contacting a young woman to tell her that God loves her and has a plan for her.
Elder Szmanski bearing his testimony to this woman that the book which he holds in his hand is the word of God and contains eternal truths that will help her return to God.
We had an enjoyable morning and afternoon in Krakow.   President learned from and participated in another great CCM meeting.  I was able to visit with and be around the some of the great members in Krakow and from this area.  We both saw and visited with some of the best missionaries in the Church.  Nothing is better than being on a mission and involved in the work of the Lord.
After the meeting we quickly headed to the airport for another meeting in Gdansk.  A busy and wonderful weekend in Poland.
