Bydgoszcz Zone Conference....November 2012

The Bydgoszcz Zone.   Today we were in Poznan but still as the Bydgoszcz Zone.  The train connections are better for our Szczecin Elders to meet in Poznan than to meet in Bydgoszcz.  It would take them all day to travel just one way.  So the Missionaries in Gdansk made the long trip over to Poznan.  We love Poland, but it is big and some of the train connections make us work.
The Poznan District: Elders Stockford and Tiner (District Leader).  Sisters Allen and Bezdjian.  Sister and Elder Reed. A big THANK YOU to the Reeds for the delicious lunch they prepared for our Conference!
The Gdansk District: Elders Myler (District Leader) and Finch.  Sisters Peterson and Ostler.
The Bydgoszcz District: Elders Tingey, Raines (District Leader), Gudnason (Zone Leader), and Weir.
The Szczecin District: Elders Van Bakel (District Leader), Stumpf, Gladun and Roberts. Yes! Szczecin is now its own District!
"Having a little girl-time!" It's always great to get the Sisters together and take a picture.  They are so dedicated and work so hard!  Sisters Bezdjian, Allen, Ostler and Peterson.
Meanwhile all the Elders are scrunched in the hallway/library/coat closet of the chapel enjoying each others' company while eating homemade brownies, ice cream and hot fudge sauce.  Elders Weir, Raines, Finch, Stumpf, Stockford, Tingey and Myler.
Birthdays  since our last Zone Conference held in August were:  Sisters Reed, Bezdjian, Elders Van Bakel, Myler and Stumpf.  STO LAT!
With the end of a great Zone Conference comes running to the trains.....often with boxes of supplies! Bydgoszcz and Gdansk are in a big hurry to not miss their trains but stop for one last picture.  Elders Wier, Tingey, Sisters Ostler and Peterson, Elders Raines and Gudnason.
What's  this? We came to Poznan with 2 Assistants and leave with 2 and a 'former'?  Elder Myler, a former Assistant, is traveling to Warsaw to teach a Polish language segment in our final Zone Conference tomorrow.  So, how do you keep 3 active, talkative Assistants behaving in the car for 3.5  hours???  A kinder-egg helped! We love these Elders as well as ALL our Missionaries.  The Poland Warsaw Mission has the  best missionaries in the world serving in it!  (LtoR): Elders Myler, Basha and Jensen
